[04:34:44] <wiredfool_> http://www.insweat.com/whispers/articles/python-gc -- see para 2. gc.DEBUG_LEAK looks like a memory leak itself, esp to tools like top
[04:37:00] <wiredfool_> second, there's definitely some retained objects in the boto uploads to s3 https://gist.github.com/wiredfool/5754498
[04:37:03] <crundar> I'm looking to convert my numeric (integer) data into pixels in a greyscale file. I'd like to take advantage of the PNG or TIFF's ability to generate 2^16 shades of grey. Does PIL have a method to do that as simply as it does write RGB values?
[04:37:30] <crundar> I've seen the 'L' mode, but that's too restrictive for what I'm after, I believe
[04:37:47] <wiredfool_> There are quite a few modes, but...
[04:38:47] <wiredfool_> I don't think 16bit gray is one of therm.
[04:52:35] <crundar> Wait, so I can just open it with I instead of RGB, and it should just do its thing?
[04:52:45] <wiredfool_> but I mode is definitely wrong for tiff, you want I;16
[04:53:50] <crundar> I was kind of hoping to not have to learn tonight about how colors and greys and such work; that there is in fact a mode that'll just make it happen if i feed it integers with the range 0 to (sub1 (* 2 16))
[04:53:58] <wiredfool_> sorry, I might be confused between modes and rawmodes
