Re: image viewer for gigapixels

Oh if irfanview is usable I may take advantage of VMware and
the new world order of unified one world governance in my
computer system (like the Bilderberg Society secretly planned
for us) to try it. Thanks!

P.S. I analyze conspiracy theory but I don't believe or
support them. I just think it's funny that Windows runs on
Apple machines when Bill Gates was invited to the Bilderberg
