Maze image stuff - what is it?
« on: November 28, 2014, 04:32 PM »
I've been seeing this type of image around.  Anyone have a link that explains what it is and how it works?  It's tough to search since I don't know what they are called.

They're called QR codes.

As Renegade said, they're called QR codesw (AKA 2D barcodes).

You've been visiting a lot of Windows help forums, eh? :Thmbsup:

Yeah in fact I joined the Vista forum Jan 2008, even before I found DC.  I've followed it through W7 and W8.  But never having owned any smart phones or tablets I must say I'm dismayed with the current direction Windows has taken.  I'm on W Ten forum but it doesn't run well enough in a VM on my laptop to try very much.  And it's just W8 with a few doodads anyway.

But I can always brush up on Linux or check out others if Windows really drops off the deep end.  :)
With all the specialized Linux distros I wish someone would come up with EyeCandyLinux.  Let's have fun with a free OS that not only works well but looks damn good doing it, is what the copy might say.  :)

Edit: I just found Eye Candy Linux community.
