VectorMagic and RiotPrrl

In stealing a bit of the latest XKCD for iconage (mostly for those of my flist who might identify, somehow...) I used Stanford's new VectorMagic service, which I figured some of the more graphical of you guys out there should know about, if you didn't already.

It's an online service which does a bloody good job of turning several different types and styles of bitmap into good vector images. In this case it managed to do this, which I was well impressed with:


(it doesn't show up quite so well in the 100x100 icon, but it's much better than it was as a scaled bitmap. I may work on that when I've got more time)
