You’ve developed a tool that trims PDFs so they fit an e-reader. What to call it?
Think cut. Think precision. And by all means, think out of the box.
For those of you who aren't rolling on the floor laughing, allow me to translate:
Brit milah (Hebrew: בְּרִית מִילָה [b'rīt mī'lā], Ashkenazi pronunciation, bris milôh, "covenant of circumcision"; Yiddish pronunciation, bris) is a Jewish religious circumcision ceremony performed on 8-day-old male infants by a mohel. (Source: Wikipedia.)
Here’s what LifeHacker has to say about Briss:
Virtually every current ereader offers native support for the PDF format, but no PDF was designed for your ereader’s 5-7" screen. Briss, a cross-platform open-source tool, gives you several ways to trim PDFs to look better on your ereader.
The best stuff, naturally, is in the reader comments.
Brijazz: Can you e-mohel the resulting file?
Robotronic: This is outrageous. PDF mutilation is inherently wrong! At least let him wait until he’s old enough to decide his own file size!!
Ryan: I will admit the 5-7" allusion was both subtle and obvious at the same time. Golf clap on that one.
Thanks to Karen for the, uh, tip. “Maybe it trims just the foreword?” she suggested.
