Ah, a thread for desktop images? A fine idea, Q4(V)-san. ^_^

I cannot remember boasting around with my background in this forum, but knowing how much I usually brag about them, it wouldn't be a wonder if I had done that here as well. :D

I cannot attach a screenie of my current desktops right now, however, as I'm at uni and have all my comps at my parents' place in a completely different city. :L I'll show you my lovely Emuii-san background when I get back to my comps, in a bit less than two weeks time. ^o^

Oi, now just a moment... let's not get these expectations that far. ^^; I'm 100% sure I've not said about making my own desktop, because I've definitely not done it (I only use Paint anyway, so it wouldn't turn out too well). ^^;

My desktop's nothing special, a grey Windows Classic theme and an OS-tan background image. Naturally, I love it myself having selected the image myself but it's not 'magically good' or even exceptional. Just a picture of chibi Emuii-san on a meadow. :D

I had one image of Nisen-san and Ekusupii-san (can be found from the gallery, I think) for a long time, and before that the Magic Knights... Nisen-san dominates the desktop of the one computer I rarely use, while Ikuyo Suzuki-san's in my oldest still operating comp. Oh, and every now and then I switch to Gekigangar 3 theme. Let's go, Gekigangar 3!!

My longest-serving desktop image, however, was a picture of Edgar Street (a football stadium, home venue of HUFC), which I used without changes for approximately six years before my anime tendencies took over. ^^;

Post by: Pitkin on April 02, 2006, 02:23:28 pm
Here's the desktop of my newer computer. Just like I said, nothing fancy; no flashy special effects in toolbars or fantasy-like use of colours. Just Emuii-san on a meadow, and I love it. ^_^

The picture can be found from the gallery. Any criticism will be met with stuck-up attitude and ice-cold glares. :D

Gentlemen, I'm appalled. Do I look like a pervert to you? Are these innocent eyes of mine even possible to see viewing something with lust? Are these clean hands capable of even navigating to some dirty material, let alone saving it onto the hard drive of their owner's computer?

http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/32827981/  <-- My current theme.

On Mac, cmd-shft-3 takes a picture of the screen and saves it to the desktop.  On windows, I think you hit the "Prnt scrn" key or something like that, which then puts the screen on the clipboard.  Go into your favorite graphics program (like Paint) and hit paste.  Then save.

Nice background, rpb-san. ^_^

And yes, under Windows you use the Print Screen key (it's right above Delete and Insert on default keyboards) to take a screenshot, and then open up Paint and choose Paste. I'm only repeating rpb-san's words, though. ^^;

Even if it is an XP-tan, I don't think the image deserves 1 star.  Definitely the handiwork of those Gallery vandals we used to have before Pitkin/Linux-tan changed the rules for picture voting.  -v-

Calm down....v_v

YES, At the low end, therefore, the PC desktops are marginally less expensive than the Macs -- IF EVER you live without their connectivity and multimedia capabilities -- and considerably more expensive if you can't. At the very high end, however, all of the design focus is on multimedia processing and the PCs simply aren't competitive from either hardware or cost perspectives.

Yes, PCs run at a faster clock speed than Macs, but they have 20 clock cycles per operation, meaning it will take longer to do an operation than a Mac running at 7 clock cycles per operation. PC makers have used this tactic for years, they thought that if they blotted the PC with gigahertz that the consumerwould be so dazzeled that they would forget every other factor.

People forget talking about ergonomics, design and lifetime. Point is, not all of us computer users have the same requirements for us to us it in our daily lives. We all have different requirements by choosing a computer. If your requirements are a cheaper and faster in every cycle per operation process, rabid gaming, required updating, go and stay with your PC, no one forces you or anyone to use a Mac. I even have a PC at home, but compare to it I am really enjoying using a apple latop at work coz it feels like home whenever you have good multimedia stored and easier storage of files.

I no bash? I made a suggestion that Macs may not have the greatest value per dollar. Seriously, rants aside, if someone gave me a mac, or offered me one at a good price, I would take it. It is superior to Windows, but not quite in my price range. Anyway, I'm planning to build a computer in the coming year, but with the new Windows Vista. Mac OS 10.5 would be kinda neat, but more novel than productive. I'm building a home computer to use for the last few years of high school and to come home to when I go to college. I plan to replace it in about 2015. Then build another one to replace it with whatever OS I feel is good then. Could be Mac OS, the replacement for Windows, or Linux. No hard feelings, eh?

There is my very boring desktop. I sometimes have a pic there. Though I change it a lot cause after awhile it starts to annoy me or people who use my computer make stupid comments about it so ussualy I just leave it plain =P

That and I have a pretty slow computer. I plan to upgrade it to XP even though it'll be even more slow... I'm building a new computer... Just will take awhile with limited money.

I've taken a rendering of XP-tan which is on the front page of, erm, whatever web
site it's on the front page of; and I've added my own colors.  I've also done away
with the Dick Tracy pointed chin and the very-pointy left elbow.

(http://flyvapnet.com/myPictures/MeStuff/DesktopWallpaper060924A.png)

Be advised this is the only place on the web where the above image will appear,
so let's not be having any aneurysms as a result of righteous indignation at my
adulteration of an original piece of art.  In the privacy of my home, on my little old
local machine, I'm allowed to play around with whatever comes across the cable.

To the original artist, whomever he or she may be, I'd like to say this:  Thank you
for creating the best rendering of XP-tan I've yet seen!  You've masterfully dealt
with what I consider the glaring weakness of most anime/games/manga renderings
of female characters:  Flat Butt Syndrome (FBS).

Apparently, explanations dealing with commerce and/or expediency to the contrary
notwithstanding, most anime/games/manga artists have never beheld a female
human going away Ã¢â‚¬â€ or from the side, for that matter (except when it comes to the
matter of breasts).  Fortunately, XP-tan seems less prone to FBS than are other anime/
games/manga female characters; and for that I'm grateful.

haha, the flat-butt thing really bothers you doesn't it?
Title: Yes!
Post by: MisterCat on September 26, 2006, 02:12:16 am
Flat Butt Syndrome (FBS) strikes me as being really weird, SleepyD,
because anime/games/manga artists have the frontal anatomy of
females figured out but not the dorsal anatomy.  Even when pains are
taken to show muscular detail in a rear view, FBS is observed.

It's rather like some manner of large clamp has been attached to
females' hips at birth, pressing front and back, so that any vestige of
a butt is made perfectly flat.  I'm reminded of the foot-binding custom
which used to plague China, or the vertical head-binding once
practiced by a Native American Indian tribe.

Even my favorite anime hero-type female of all time, Ifurita from El-
Hazard
, suffers from FBS.  Here's what I mean:

(http://flyvapnet.com/myPictures/Art/Anime/El-Hazard/15LJEH18A01.jpg)

See?  She's got hips a-plenty, just no butt.  Where did it go?

Is there no cure?

Seriously, it has never bothered me. The Japanese are so good at drawing breasts, it makes up for it. Just look at this compelling evidence of a Japanese breast:

No fair showing pictures of food, NewYinzer!  Now I'm hungry.  Fortunately, we've plenty of rations in the galley.

;012

You make a very important point, regarding the new spying trend being employed by bureaucracies both private and public.  Invasion of privacy is becoming common law, at least here in the States.

For most of my working life, all the boss ever cared about was my getting the job done right.  What I did on my own time was none of her/his damned business; and management was in full agreement with that philosophy.

But now, who knows just who's listening or watching whom?  I don't care, because I'm retired on a disability pension and have the luxury of not caring about such things; but for you and squillions of others, it's become a considerable concern.

;026

As for Flat Butt Syndrome, I propose anime/games/manga females eat more cheeseburgers.  XP-tan, especially, will be glad to learn of this proposal!  (A perusal of those forums you will be avoiding reveals she burns a lot of energy....)

Invasion of privacy.... well, the internet is a "public" place, but really, this is tantamount to stalking.

mmm food... Curse it, now I want some In-N-Out burgers....

Well, I think it's been mentioned that the majority of asians have a slim build, due to diet and genetics.  (of course, those who live on a fast-food diet are likely as obese as many others)  I did a little reading (some of it would be considered controversial, but lighten up people) and many asian females don't satisfy what people would consider "curvy"  Furthermore, the big-breast thing is most likely due to the stereotypical view of American females in Japan. (And with all the movies and stuff we send over there, who could blame them?)

I am asian and I have trouble gaining any weight at all no matter what I eat... (and I don't work out either) I am starting to avoid anything overly oily or fatty tho... My family on both sides have a history of diabetes and I'd like to avoid that... I still eat my rice tho... hehe

And to remain somewhat on topic, here was my desktop before 2k-tan

LOL. yes she survived. she actually was the reason why shinji rejected instrumintality in the series/movie, even his mother couldn't convience him to accept it

That link is to the last 8 minutes of EoE. you should watch the rest first. This is the part that shows Asuka amd Shinji as the only survivors of the would-have-been end of the world
Title: Alas!
Post by: MisterCat on September 30, 2006, 09:51:39 pm
Thank you, brouge, for that link to the video!  If this means Ã¢â‚¬â€ as it appears from the video Ã¢â‚¬â€ that Asuka's stuck with Shinji, then I'm of two minds about just how happy one should be that she's at least temporarily alive.

My main gripe in regard to anime is that there's always some male kid who's made out to be the big hero.  Maybe that goes over well in Japan; but I think it's pure unadulterated bullshit, which is why I like the OS-tans.

Both Asuka and Rei run circles around Shinji in regard to character development, so he can just go back to middle school or wherever he came from and leave the real work in the more-than-capable hands of our female polar-opposite duo.  It's a bit too late for that, I suppose, the way things stand now; but I'm going to use the time machine to go back and speak with the NERV people....

Been a while since I watched Eva, but as i recall his character, I think he would've agreed with you.  But leave it to all the other characters and a very sadistic script to shove the whole hero thing down his throat.

Oh well, at least in EoE, they paid the price for not sticking behind the more capable female characters.  ^-^

[Poor Asuka though was stuck with a pathetic excuse for an "Adam".  ^.^]

Post by: brougeXP22 on October 01, 2006, 12:04:33 am
what's with the shinji bashing? ^^; geez. Asuka may have seemed super capable and all but she's like glass. One thing breaks her every time. same goes for shinji. i love asuka as a character but i also respect that shinji is an anti-hero. although once shinji see's someone in danger he's totally different which is one reason why the asuka/shinji pairing for adam and eve wasn't that hard to believe. Asuka loves shinji. It's obvious throught-out the series and it's shown in the directors cut episodes (whcih i own). they're the perfect disfunctional pair as far as anime couples go. Total foils of each other but also incredibly alike in a lot of ways. They need each other so asuka with out shinji is like peanut butter with no jelly when you sit and think about it.  ;011
Title: Oh?
Post by: MisterCat on October 01, 2006, 12:54:27 am
All right, brouge, be that way.  If it'll make you happy, I'll call off my visit to NERV and the series can go ahead the way it's already been done.  Just don't expect me to write Shinji any letters of recommendation.

;014

Seriously, though, my objection to these boy lead characters is that they're given (in my view) too much exposure at the expense of female characters who are invariably more interesting.  Plus, whenever the going gets tough for a female character she's depicted as eventually being helpless; and it's those selfsame boys who are then made to ride to the rescue.

If the people who produce anime series would lose their boy-hero fixation and let female characters go ahead and save the day at least half the time, I'd be much happier about the whole thing.  So it's no so much Shinji himself but rather the producers' dogmatic clichÃƒÂ©s, to which I object.

but i do understand your point about interesting female characters being ignored or shown as helpless. It gets kinda annoying, doesn't it?

Post by: C-Chan on October 01, 2006, 01:53:55 am
I'm feeling a vague sense of deja vu here,...  ^v^'

But again, while that was very true in the past, still true in some present circles, and certainly true with a lot of non-japanese productions (where for some reason strong women have to = smartasses, no exceptions), a lot has changed in the Anime world since at least the latter half of the 1990's.

Thanks to shifting cultural paradigms, we now have gems such as the Slayers series, the Banner of the Stars series, the Read or Die tv series, and the Ghost in the Shell tv series that actually make the case to respect and admire strong female characters, regardless of whether they're accompanied by males or not.  Often an Anime or a live movie simply throws in a strong woman just for comedy, originality or polical correctness, hence inevitably making the attempt fall flat (and in need of rescuing by the ubiquitous boy hero).

Naturally, Miyazaki-san has always been WAY ahead of the curve on this issue, hence why Nausicaa was considered such a revolutionary character both in Japan and abroad.

I don't want to appear as being too forward, NewYinzer, but could it be you're experiencing an emergency?  I'd be glad to help, if you think my assistance might of use.

For example, I've several dull kitchen knives which in spite of their inability to cut through vegetables in the manner of their youth are nevertheless formidable when presented as daggers.  Also, I've a hammer Ã¢â‚¬â€ the one I keep in full view of my computing-system's monitor screen as a psychological deterrent to cyber-thoughts of blue screens Ã¢â‚¬â€ which would serve well as a club at close range.

The mere idea of shots being fired causes me to think of words such as "bad," "hurt," et cetera!  So if you're in need of support in the face of these attacks from that E personage you've mentioned, please let me know so I can hide under the bed come riding to the rescue in the traditional anime manner of an annoying middle-school student (which I'm not Ã¢â‚¬â€ a middle-school student, that is).

Not only are there 1000 varieties and flavors of Linux, many of which can run off a simple memory stick (even Floppy DISKS!!), but 90% of them are free!  And 100% of them use millions of varieties of applications that are GNU license, or in other words FREE!!!  ^V^

In fact, my sig and all my drawings were made with Inkscape, a free vector graphics program designed for Linux, and fixed up using GIMP at times (a free image editing program neck-to-neck with Photoshop), and used to render props in Blender (a free 3D graphics solution that is equally as capable as 3D Max -- if not for the gawdful interface... >_<)

Depending on the particular distros you play around with, you can even modify it to suit your own needs, or practice features that you might eventually want to export to GyrusHex. ^__^ Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: brougeXP22 on October 06, 2006, 05:13:00 pm i knew about the xbox-linux mod but not about the MP3 players. I still use windows and probably won't use linux till i get my new comp. Plus what is lindows? Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Silentbob on October 06, 2006, 05:38:53 pm Lindows is now called Linspire. It's a Linux distro. In the beginning it tried to provide easy Windows compatibilty from within Linux using Wine. But that's not the goal anymore, now they just aim to make their distro as easy to use as possible. It's not free, the cheapest version costs about$50.   I've never tried it.  There is a free version called Freespire also, but I haven't tried that one either.

Bless your heart, XP #22. ^__^

It's great to learn Linux just for the sake of learning how operating systems function in general.  The SUSE Linux GUI is intuitive enough, but if I really want to get some serious customization done, I have to get my hands dirty.  To the point where I can return to my Windows machine and laugh at the claustrophobic simplicity.... ^___^'

BTW, after I've gotten a feel for SUSE, I'd love to try this one out....

http://www.aros.org/

It's all AmigaBob's fault,... his uncontrollable cool factor has fired up an interest in any kind of Amiga-like operating system I can get my hands on....  ^.^

C-Chan added the following  1 minute after last message :

BTW, I've give some thought to a Freespire-tan to accompany Linspire-tan, but anyone else have any ideas of your own on how she should look like?  ^__^

My Windows desktop is boring (maybe I should spruce it up with the C64/Amiga wallpaper C-Chan made :))

Anyway, here a desktop I set up in WinUAE, to show that "classic type" (ie. non-PPC) Amigas can have cool desktops too!  (Yes that's the equivalent of WinAmp running, the Amiga can play MP3s, as well as display all kind of picture formats and surf the internet the same way as any other respectable computer ;) ).

Thank you, C-Chan.     You're inflating my ego so much, soon it won't fit in my apartment.   :P

I'd like to get all this over to my A1200, but before I can do that, I have to put it in a tower case, get a better CPU and lots of hardware such as graphics card and 16-bit sound card.  Unfortunately, it's as you know, quite pricey, but maybe one day I can put some spare cash aside.   Anything for my dear Amiga, I won't leave it for dead!  \o/

Not something I use (or am extremely familiar with), more like a curiosity, this is a desktop running Teradesk, a desktop replacement for Atari 16/32-bit TOS-based computers. (TOS was originally a single tasking operating system, only capable of running one program at a time).  It was the direct competitor to the Amiga back in the days. Though clones of the systems are still being produced, running Motorola 68040 or 68060 CPUs, they're not well known.  I don't think the PPC CPU ever made it to that part of the computer world.

Here is the time where my nerdiness comes in handy. The Lisa, which was named after Steve Jobs' illegitimate daughter, was Apple's first computer with a GUI. At that time, there were competing projects with different goals. There was the Lisa project, which was for a business computer with a GUI. There was the Macintosh project, which was separate from the Lisa project, which was developing a lower end computer with a GUI. There was also the Apple III and Apple II projects. In the end, the Macintosh project came out on top. For more info about the Lisa:

As for the Apple III, I have one piece of advice:
Pick it up and drop it!

Hehe, I remember that was the advice if the computer didn't work.  The chips had come loose or something.   :P

Oh, I missed out on your Apple-tans, C, (I see they're in your sig too, but they were a bit small to catch what it said on Lisa-tans hairclip). They look great.   ;010

Here is the time where my nerdiness comes in handy. The Lisa, which was named after Steve Jobs' illegitimate daughter, was Apple's first computer with a GUI. At that time, there were competing projects with different goals. There was the Lisa project, which was for a business computer with a GUI. There was the Macintosh project, which was separate from the Lisa project, which was developing a lower end computer with a GUI. There was also the Apple III and Apple II projects. In the end, the Macintosh project came out on top. For more info about the Lisa:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Lisa

The TechnoYinzer strikes again!  ^v^

Indeed the Lisa was Apple's first GUI OS, although with such an enormous price tag and with the success of the Macintosh, it's often mistakenly believed that the Mac has that title.  ^^'

As for the Apple III, I have one piece of advice:
Pick it up and drop it!

Hidoi desu!  ^o^
BTW, remember how I squirmed my way out of drawing an Apple III-tan?  ^v^
Probably better than I did, since the Apple III was simply a rebranded Apple II.  ^^'

Thank you, SilentBob.
Given the scope of the project, though, I'm starting to regret that it's not a Wiki.  (That way, then, everyone could write a little something about their favorite OS-tans, or a system they might have had experience with.)

BTW, I might be getting members mixed up, but didn't you say you were involved in advertising of some sort?  '_'
Title: Post Your Desktop
Post by: Silentbob on October 18, 2006, 05:06:48 pm
I do work in an advertising agency yes.   Though web design and such is not my forte in case you were wondering. We got a separate division working on those kind of things.   I mostly do ground work on advertisements, clean ups on pictures with Photoshop ++ and double as assistant sysadmin when the other guy is too busy or not at work.  ^^;
Title: Post Your Desktop
Post by: C-Chan on October 18, 2006, 05:17:33 pm
Coolness.  ^__^

Actually, I was wondering the following things:

1) Are you good with Photoshop / drawing programs in general (from what I saw in your answer, yes).  ^__^

2) #1 being true, do you engage in artwork or at least collaging (the next logical step after cleaning up images is altering existing ones to create something new).

3) Unrelated to #1 and #2, would you be willing to critique some of my work (especially the Annex faction logos), and let me know if there's something I can do to improve their impact?

4) In consideration of #1, #2, and #3, is there anything I/we can do for you in exchange for your potential help?  'v'

It may come as a bit of a surprise, but I'm not much of an "arty" fella, to tell ya the truth.  We usually deal in ready made clip art , pictures and other material from our art department for the stuff that we make, as we often have a high workload and tight deadlines to meet. Some of us don't even have an educational background in the trade.  (I myself started off working as a computer technician, I ended up where I am now by chance. One of the reasons I double as assistant sysadmin). As for the touching up of stuff in Photoshop it's usually limited to some speedy removal of objects not supposed to be in the picture, colour alterations and such.  It's like an assembly line, some of us do the basic ground work for some of the material, and then send it over to the next guy for the final touchups, we found that it saves a bit of time, because our department boss is like "I NEED THIS AND THAT, AND I NEED IT YESTERDAY!"   ;013

I used to draw a bit back in school (many years ago), but that was about it. Simple stuff really.  I hope I didn't give you a too high impression of my abilities.  -_-;    Though that doesn't mean I'm incapable of giving useful critique to art, I'll take a closer look at some of your drawings if that's what you'd like me to.  Heaven knows I've seen enough anime over the years to get a feel of the genre.    =)

Here's my current desktop wallpaper:

Yeah, that sounds familiar.  -v-

In my case, I'm kind of the reverse.  Began as an editor for an insurance company (not having an educational background in the trade) and evolved into a computer [more like software] technician.  Now I'm the overall "Go-To" guy, although I have plenty of run-ins with ridiculously crazy deadlines.  ^___^'

A while I go I proposed an assembly-line approach to 4-koma comics, in order to spit them out quickly and with minimal time commitment from everyone.  But it really didn't fly.... -v-'

Thank you AmigaBob.  ^__^
That's always helpful, of course.  ^.^
But so as not to tie up your time too much, I only really need the faction logos scoped out since they're each meant to represent a lot of -tans and besides they're also the only thing I am able to update at this time.  Due to scheduling limitations, I note all shortcoming for my OS-tans pics (torso issues, for example), but generally leave them as is after they're done.  -v-'

I'm always happy to see people volunteer some bit of artwork, although I can understand if there's no time or will to do so.  But I certainly wouldn't discourage attempts on lack of talent or practice alone. ^^'

Case in point, I am not an artist nor have an artistic background nor have engaged in a lot of original artwork in the past (a lot of cbeap collage work on Photoshop, though, such as this parody of The Ring...)

(http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g2/C-Chan_2006/OSRing.png)

Still, with a lot of improvisation and emulation, I'm able to stick my snout in this art stuff rather comfortably.  ^__^

I was hoping to write a sort of 'Non-Artist's Cheaters Guide to Anime Cel Drawing', to see if that can inspire visitors to take up the paintbrush and try their hand at OS-tan depictions.  ^__^
But aside from the tackiness of the idea, I think I've alreaady bit off more than I can chew as far as outstanding projects go. ^___^'

Haha, Number 9 girl, that's cute.  ^.^
Before Alfamille stops by with a lynch mob, just want to let you know that the girl is in fact Mac OS9-tan.  ^__^
We just call her Sonata since that's the original codename for OS9 (and it slides off the tongue easier than "OS9").  ^___^'

So many Etna pictures, btw, are making me curious about Disgaea 2.  It seems she reappears in the game's storyline, although I could be mistaken.  -v-

The comic is cute (in a morbid sort of way), btw.  ^^

D'oh!  >_<

Worst part is that I can't laugh in your face when you have that adorable Etna  staring at me....  ^^'

Oh well, I'll just give you two hints:

1)  Aurora drew her a lot.

and

2)  The picture has QNX written all over it.  ^^;

Total number of operating systems currently in use are 4, or 5 when I get a Mac and 6 when I try out AROS.  ^^'

Don't blame me, blame the OS-tans for rekindling the ol' spark....  ^v^'

As it happens, C-Chan, I've not yet screened that Daniel Myrick and Eduardo SÃƒÂ¡nchez 1999 film The Blair Witch Project.  I'd like to, but so far the opportunity Ã¢â‚¬â€ which has presented itself Ã¢â‚¬â€ seems to have slipped away.

;018

I know, I need to get out more!  Well, whenever I'm next at the video-rental shop I'll hopefully remember to snag that film:  It's one of many, which I remember only when I've returned home from said shop.

The "Come See me Tonight" Folder could be assumed as night-time related school work, like moon watching...god those long hours how standing outside for a few minutes, and draw the position of the moon for science...and now I have chemistry!!

Or maybe it refers to come see me as the computer...why would I want to see the computer, I'm looking at it right now?

Maybe I need to see myself, as in realize that my raging paranoia is just a stupid fear that there might be someone outthere who looks like me (aka my good twin) who will kill me in a Highlander-like fashion, and scream, "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!".

Well hopefully it is just the moon work as I'd hate it to be --
Thundercracks in the background and someone screams out, "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!!"

Post by: MisterCat on January 14, 2007, 09:04:02 pm
Thanks, Captain.  I missed this place!  Well, I'm glad the administration set up rules governing image-file size as (in my view) it was really getting out of hand.

o_o

It seems to me it's only the width of image files which should be a concern.  How tall an image file is doesn't really matter, as message boards are usually designed with vertical scrolling in mind.

Surely this will sound like a silly fixation on my part, but over the years I've established my own parameters for image-file posting:  I like to post images which are either 320 or 500 pixels in width; and so if an image is, say, 400 pixels wide I'll reduce it to 320.  The image-editing application I use does a much better job of quality retention when a file is made smaller rather than larger; but if I decide to make an image larger, I first change it to a Bitmap file and then change it back to a GIF or JPEG after resizing.

Actually, my favorite format is PNG; but having spent time in Dial-Up Hell I know it's best to post JPEG-format image files.  With these desktop-wallpaper files, however, I usually go with GIF as JPEG results in too much loss of quality.

Title: About that missileer....
Post by: MisterCat on January 19, 2007, 09:56:27 am
As it happens, those Titan II complexes were all deactivated 25 years ago.  That friend I'd mentioned, Stewart, was in the Air Force at about the same time as me:  c. 1965-69.

Stewart passed away two-and-one-half years ago, after a lengthy fight with bone-marrow cancer.  He'd spent the previous 30 years in the field of social work; and he was my therapist, working out of the Vet Center here in Portland, for the 12 years prior to his illness forcing him to take medical retirement.

It's my view, as it was his, that extended contact with fumes from volatile missile propellants contributed to his illness.  Anyway, Stewart was a Missile Combat Crew Commander back in the day and would have been one of the two people on duty at that Titan II complex to simultaneously turn a key (not press a button) enabling missile launch.

Since I'm alive to write this Ã¢â‚¬â€ and you to read it Ã¢â‚¬â€ it's obvious the launch order was never given.  Stewart told me that he'd initially decided to obey a launch order (the crew talked about this frequently) but after a few months changed his mind and intended to refuse such an order; yet during the final months of his commission he came to resign himself to following a launch order.

He explained that the person second in command would have simply ordered somebody else to turn the other key.  (There were four people on duty in the control room at all times.)  Please forgive my digression from the thread topic!

Post by: MisterCat on January 19, 2007, 07:28:32 pm
Exa, you're right:  I do change my desktop wallpaper often.  I might suddenly see another potential-wallpaper image which I really like; or I'll just get bored staring at the existing wallpaper and begin a wallpaper hunt.

Mind, I really like my recent wallpaper which showed the totally-gorgeous Johanna kneeling on a beach in Nova Scotia; but then "something came over me" and I put up that artistic diagram of a Titan II missile complex.  However, it soon struck me as being perhaps a bit too stern an image; so now it's all butterflies, plants and a rabbit-ears chick.

Quote from: "MisterCat"
I do change my desktop wallpaper often.  I might suddenly see another potential-wallpaper image which I really like; or I'll just get bored staring at the existing wallpaper and begin a wallpaper hunt.

Now you mentioned, I realized that I'm the same type, one wallpaper stands for a month, but another for only one day - yes, I'm changing again. The source is the same game and the pic is from the same site.

I have wallpaper cycler 3.1 on my machine, which not only changes my wallpaper every 10 minutes but also does some quick visual work on the image to add some variety...

of course, when you only look at it once every hour or two, you tend not to notice.

i'm usually not too fond of things that make an OS pretty, Windowblinds isn't that bad actually but DesktopX is one of those bugging, snacking programs, and i only use them when it's actually practical
I use windowblinds myself for example for a better overview of things and a cleaner look, but disabled all animations i'm pretty happy with it And animations really do snack, try disabling the shortcut menu animations on a mac G5 and see how fast it can launch an app, for XPpro it takes less I guess but still I don't recommend any animation of GUI.

I had a similar program called Wallmaster which does a similar thing but I think without the visual edits. I could really confuse people with 1-minute(!) wallpaper changes...

True, although that'd be more obvious if that were a government or military building,... unless the three are inseparable in this case.  -v-
(Doubt it, though, cause then why else would YOU of all people have it as your wallpaper... ^^')

Now that you mention it, I have noticed there seems to be a lot of that kind of thing going around these days.  '.'

The producer of Kino's Journey Episode 12 ("Heiwa na Kuni") was right on the money.

I'm happy that you like that design - that means I don't have bad taste! :) I was just surprised because  I thought Hungarian equipment is not that well-known by Mecha Musume design creators... And I don't know anything about her in terms of personality - I just find this pic in a Mecha Musume picture pack.

The theme is my custom FastGrass, it's a combo of Crux (Controls), Smokey (Window Border), and Human (Icons).  I'm pretty sure it all came with my installation.  I decided to do it because I got bored with Human theme and just fiddled around with the theme and other aspects of the interface (changed the splash and login screens) until I was satisfied. Fun.

I also can't really take full credit for the wallpaper.  It's actually two separate wallpapers that I didn't create, but it was my idea to combine the two.  I just gimp'd the two images and pagecurled the top layer.... YIPPEE!  I'll probably do one with more original content later.

BTW, finally watched whatever's available for Lucky Star and do like it (although it still hasn't topped Haruhi for me).

But upon viewing that GIANT picture of Konata in Ubuntu, it occurred to me.... Gummster,.... weren't you using Beryl in one of your other screenshots?  '__'

*facefaults*  Oh never mind.  All this HaruNata Alliance stuff made me confuse your Ubuntu desktop with Alpha Cluster's.....  T___T;

See how Alpha Cluster's desktop looks a little sleek and has that red diamond in the task pane?  That's Beryl, or essentially the Linux response to Vista's Aero (although Compiz-Beryl have been around for a bit longer).

Check it out sometime, or search "Beryl" in YouTube to preview it.  -v-

It's just the die-hard (Mac, Windows or Linux) zealots that absolutely refuse to see (or acknowledge) any faults in their system, nor any strengths in their competitors, that annoy me. "K8", my comp, runs XP great. With good upkeep, it's fast, stable, not very virus-prone, and looks good. But I've used my fair share of XP's that have been the opposite...and I'm not afraid to say so.

That pretty much nails it.  Personally, I have to wonder what schools they go to where they have the luxury of Macs (even if it's just System 7 stuff), when there are schools with 5 decade old textbooks and typewriters in lieu of a computer lab (or at least some 80's computers).  But that aside, the answer is probably the same as to why IE still controls a huge market share of the browser market.  When it comes down to it, relatively few people are aware that there is such a thing as "Linux", let alone education-oriented distributions like Edubuntu.

Hell, before I began getting into OS-tans, my entire world was essentially Windows and Macs, and I couldn't really perceive of anything else, regardless of how beneficial it would be to my pocketbook or my hardware.

Linux needs both more advertising AND the elimination of the geek-only image that often detracts those who have at least heard of it a little.  It's one of those little ironies that the people who run education systems aren't necessarily the brightest bulbs either, so you can't expect them to always do their own research.  ^^;

Post by: C-Chan on May 17, 2007, 08:01:03 am
Oh come now, if the Linux purists caught word that I wooed you over with just Beryl, they'd crucify me.  ^^;

For one thing it is still int he alpha phase,... and while it doesn't stop it from being jaw-droppingly stable, it does hiccup on some distros not designed for it.  Compiz is better in stability, but is FAR more boring.  ^.^

In any event, I won't encourage you to ditch Windows ever, cause Linux is more about choices than about Operating System.  The Linux mentality means that you're free and willing to use as many Oses as you want, however you want them, whenever you want them, just like how I kept XP as a boot option AND also virtualized it on my Xubuntu desktop.  ^__^

The benefit to dual booting is that, if Windows ever goes done, you'll at least have another system to go online, process your work AND repair your Windows installation (or at least evacuate any files you want saved).

But even without dual-booting, the one thing I know you would LOVE about Linux is that the majority of the major distros now have LiveCD (or LiveUSB stick) options, meaning you can run a distros entirely from RAM disk without ever installing a thing on your hard drive.

This both serves as a way to "try before you buy" so to speak (to see if the distros is right for you, or if all the hardware is working properly), and it also serves as a fully-featured rescue CD.  Heck, I used one to browse the web, draw in inkscape, and right some C programming applets while it was busy repartitioning my entire hard drive!  ^v^

So yes, I hope all those offer much better and more exciting reasons to join.  ^___^

Since you're fresh off XP, I have to recommend PCLinuxOS 2007 as your best bet to kindly introduce you to the world of Linux.  It's user-friendly AND gorgeous, and has support for 3D desktop effects too.  ^__^

But that's only if your machine is 32-bit; if 64-bit, then MEPIS or the ^Buntu's.  ^v^

I'd recommend Minty,... but since you live in the US, you're technically not allowed to download the non-Lite version.  (You've got some screwed up copyright laws, I'm afraid to say.... ^^;)

I don't think "K8" will be running Linux soon...the old Win98 (if it runs...that's to be determined...) would be the one I'd use Linux on. I'd like to run it off of a CDR/by USB...so I'd like something that runs on RAM alone.

PCLinuxOS does sound pretty neat, though :)

BTW, would an external hard drive work in lieu of a USB stick?

But if it's any consolation, despite the hoopla, I'm too old to comprehend the notion of a "widget".  Like, how much does that differ from just having mini applications on your desktop.  ^.^;

Xubuntu runs Xfce, meaning it's lightweight and generally free of much bloat, so whereas KDE has stuff like Superkaramba, I'm still operating a traditional 1999 desktop model.  ^____^

If you like simplicity, remind me later to take a screenshot of Puppy-chan for you (no chance in hell I can install Beryl on her and I think 95-tan looks newer than her, so you'd adore Puppy.  ^v^)

Installation of DesktopBSD went ho-hum, but didn't like it (what the HELL kind of partitioning job and file system was THAT?!!  @__@), and it freaked out my poor Xubuntu's mount points afterwards (using UUID labels rather than the actual device names was not a good idea, for whoever genius thought that up... ^^')

Puppy-chan came to the rescue so well, I've decided to give HER my spot on sda2.

Simplicity is good, but so is productivity. You've got to find an appropriate balance. Then again, one is simply obligated to go all out in a widget war, regardless of bad taste, clutter, inefficiency and/or resource toll. ^-^

Poor Senpai, your BSD experience seems almost comical. I've never tried to set up a dual-boot BSD anything, so I haven't worried about partition tables. Glad everything worked out in the end, though!
Title: Post Your Desktop
Post by: C-Chan on May 21, 2007, 04:37:14 pm
I suppose I could've just kept trying, but I think I better just try and get better at Linux before I even think about storing its distant kin on the same machine.  ^^'

Don't get me wrong,... the installation, while a touch intimidating at times, was relatively user-friendly and the OS opened up to a nice and comfy KDE environment.  But aside from a few things not working [sound], something just felt.... out of place. '__'
And then it was nice enough to set iis partition as "BOOT" even though I thought I told it not to.  Puppy fixed it, but then loading Xubuntu showed boot errors which could be bypassed, then no mounts once I actually got into the system, then a nice gaping black hole in Gparted where BSD was installed (yes, even I never heard of that FS, so I couldn't blame GParted.... ^^;).

In fact, I sorta reformated the BSD drive to see if that fixed the boot errors, so you can say I cut it's life short to save Xubuntu.  Would've actually have been unnecessary if I knew then how to edit the FSTAB, but oh well, what's done and done.  I reckon PC-BSD would still be a better choice (though I don't have any more 32-bit machines... ^^'), but like I said, I'll hold off till I REALLY know what I'm doing.  -v-

In the meantime.... ^.^

Fufu... slightly more widgets.  ^.^
The swap, at least as far as I'm familiar with it., is essentially preallocated hard drive space used as a kind of virtual memory.  Very handy for when memory-hogging applications consume more than the physical RAM available.

In any event, still no Puppy screenshots, but I did swap OSes between my junk computer and my laptop, so now it's my lappie that runs PCLinuxOS....

(http://ostan-collections.net/annex/Images/snapshot3.jpg)

With a nice brush-steeled wallpaper (it's usually blue).

Sorry for the lack of Beryl, but my poor lappie is too old for it (I had nearly forgotten they created Twister K cards back in the day.... ^^').

Besides, if I keep flooding my pics with the stuff, it'll get boring after a while.  ^v^'

BTW, this one's JUST for you Bella-san....  ^___^

Back on my Xubuntu machine again.  -v-
XP performance is amazingly fast,... so aside from some OpenGL features not working properly in Hexagon, and the fact that I accidentally made the image too small (so I can't fit some of the voice programs I wanted yet), it's almost like running it off the boot partition.  Heck, I can probably just get rid of the partition install at this rate..  ^__^

Also applied a slight transparency on the Window so you can sorta see who's really calling the shots.  How ironic that it's the little mouse that's telling the cats what to do....  ^v^'

if there is too few RAM for everything you have there, the OS can save some pages of the memory to disk and use the freed RAM for a different purpose. the place of the disk which stores these part of the memory is called swap.

Fixing the iconset took like half an hour due to StyleXP not liking me. -v- The wall, though was easily fixed by me from a crappy 640x480 screenshot to a 1024x768 wallpaper with even better quality in less than five minutes. Time paradox -w- Or is it just GIMP-Tan being way much hawter than StyleXP-tan? Better get around to drawing them sometime so i can compare...-v-

Hey! Are you mocking Gintoki-sensei?? He's the absolutely second best character Sugita Tomokazu ever voiced, second only because Kyon is GOD! (or well, er, more like, god's slave)
And he is from Gintama, btw, which is a must-see if you haven't already. Currently being subbed by Rumbel who are at ep 28 whilst the series are at its 59:th episode i think (still airing, omfz! greatness!), but the 22 first episodes are available from Shinsen...
...the first line in the series being "BLEACH!" from Kurosaki-kun makes it all kind of clear this is definitely the type of anime you laugh your sorry ass off quite quickly to.

And I've actually only used Inkscape once, for the H-NA logo...

Wha- HEY! Senpai, are you implying that I would be using vista? Me, arch-pirate of the board, and general antagonist of all DRM crap? No way man - that's just some StyleXP in the works, nothing more. Although I admit it's stylish ^^

And you Xeon, you've got it real pimped up there ;) - but how is vista anyways? Doesn't the DRM suck at the RAM like a leecher on 100mbit sucks bandwidth, or Tsubashi on crack sucks blood?

Ohhhhhh, I see....  -v-
No wonder you were bashing Vista in one thread, and still posting Vista-like screencaps in this one.  I just thought you were going crazy.  ^^

Gomen gomen, I take it back -- you ARE safe from DRM hell.  ^v^

So guess that means "yes", Mr. Xeon, you are our first member to admit to using Vista.  We also have two fanbois pledging to get Vista later this year, no questions asked, so maybe you'll have reinforcements.  ^.^

Yep, pretty clear there.  ^__^
But not so on Gintoki-san (check it out to see what I mean).  ^__~

Besides, all I do is zero in on that infernal logo and pass judgement indiscriminately, so you better watch I don't Vistasize you again.  v'

The art style reminds me a little of Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, but then the same could be said of half-a-million other series.  ^v^;

I still can't grasp the concept of blocking an entire operating system, especially when there are hundreds upon thousands of varieties of Linux out there.  Surely if they could break your bro's security before, -- and they REALLY want to mooch off your internet access -- they'll find a way somehow (what with the great Linux spirit of "Hack Free or Die").  Suppose they tried virtualizing a Windows system within VMWare (although not sure if it can do wireless)?  Or what if they got their hands on a less-than-legal copy of 2K, XP or Vista beta to dual-boot and tried that?

At least you certainly help me feel justified for mistrusting wireless connections.  ^.^

In any case, less talk more posts, ne?  ^__^

Had my first successful foray with SAM Linux 2007 today and am officially, 100% FLOORED.  @o@

For those unfamiliar with it (and I don't blame you, with that unmemorable name), SAM Linux is a Linux distribution based on PCLinuxOS, but using a very sleek and heavily-modified version of Xfce.  Meaning you get all the awesome goodness and user-friendliness of PCLinuxOS, but on a system that's much kinder on older hardware.  ^__^

Plus you get other interesting additions too, such as multi-language support, some very awesome preinstalled games, a MacOSX-like dock,... and....

...SOME WIDGET...................... THINGIES......!!!!!!!  ^v^'

(I still don't see the point in them, though, other than to get your money's worth off that RAM.... ^^;)

Oh, and yes the machine I'm running it on has a Floppy drive and used to be a very crappy old HP.....

Something like my professor's ex-wife's friends husband had an oldworld G3 running Panther, and wanted more RAM (Plus a few other things) but didn't have any idea what to do. Ended up at my house. Anyways, when I booted it up, I found he had set the desktop to cycle through some two thousand pictures of himself on a five second interval.
And he wondered why his computer was so slow... ^__^'

*offers whole cookie jar*

Indeed, that would be the "Midget II" by the legendary Japanese auto-maker, Daihatsu.  The most adorable thing on barely-four wheels, and ultra fuel efficient by default (you can't get past 72km/h on this thing).  ^^'

A simple CompactFlash card!

So, without further ado, some pix of SAM (though I have no Skydome ones, since I can't figure out how to do the screenshot with Beryl; these were taken with the GIMP)

Showing off zooming dock and window transparency:

STEP 1:  Right-click on the Task Bar and select "Add New Item"
STEP 2:  In the list of panel applets, select the one that says Screenshot.  A little camera will appear in the taskbar.
STEP 3:  Rick-click on the camera icon and select Properties.  Here you'll be able to change the Screenshot delay to something which will give you plenty of time to set up the shot.  (5 seconds is good)
STEP 4:  Close the Properties windows.
STEP 5:  Left-click on the Camera icon to start the screenshot.
STEP 6:  Position your Beryl desktop to where you want it and hold for 5 seconds.
STEP  7:  DONE!!  A pop-up window will ask you where you want to save the screenshot.  ^.^

If you have Bryce or Vue, apparently they make it easy to produce panoramic images of the correct dimensions.  I'm saying this cause the overwhelming majority of those themes available for download are obviously generated from Bryce and Vue (and maybe Terragen).

FYI, yesterday I tried out SAM Linux 2007 TR1, which is the first test release for the next version of SAM.  Aside from a slight graphical overhaul, the version introduces (among other things) brand new OSX-like widgets, uber-extra language support, and some new games to replace the less-exciting ones.  System stability is suspect, though, so I'd recommend waiting towards a better Test Release to try out.  ^__^

Everything's looking nice, and even see you used Mandriva-san as your wallpaper... very nice and technically-savvy touch.....  ^___~

And speaking of Frozen Bubble, today while I was awaiting at a movie theater, I managed to get my work laptop to accept SAM (I had problems with it before, but turns out all I needed to do was switch to a generic monitor driver).  Originally I wanted to spend the time to play with the system a little more,... but turns out I ended up laying A LOT of Frozen Bubble instead.  ^^;

Awesome game to pass the time, although I was pulling my hair on some of the random stages....  -v-;

And speaking of getting my laptop to work, turns out too that my work laptop's intel graphics driver has 3D acceleration too!!  ^v^

Ohhh,... you'll be fine.... If you can work up the courage to create a swap partition on a 10-year old system with only yay RAM, you can do anything....  Especially since it's also a LiveCD (like just about anything these days)....  ^__^

Besides, I'd advise you only see it for the eyecandy and eWaste reduction potential -- aside from my little blurb in the Linux thread, we also have to contend with the fact that you only have a few days left to play with your old Compaq.  -.-

And don't forget, you really can only use this on the Compaq, since Elive is an i386 distro (and incompatible with AMD64's like K8-san.... ^^).

Title: Post Your Desktop
Post by: Tsubashi on July 04, 2007, 08:35:49 pm
Well... which 'that' are you talking about? ^^'

-The desktop is form Elive, a Linux distro.
-Eyecandy is an expression used to describe something that is most remarkable by its appearance
-A swap file is an area of a computers hard disk that is set aside for moving blocks of data between the memory and the disk. It allows an operating system to use hard disk space to simulate extra memory
-RAM is Random-access memory. RAM is the most common computer memory which can be used by programs to perform necessary tasks while the computer is on;
-A LiveCD is an operating system stored on a bootable CD-ROM that can be executed from it, without installation on a hard drive.
-i386 refers to the Intel 80386; a microprocessor which was used as the central processing unit of many personal computers from 1986 until 1994 and later. During its design phase the processor was code-named simply "P3", the third-generation processor in the x86 line, but  is frequently referred to as the i386.
-The AMD64 is a 64-bit processor architecture invented by AMD. It is a superset of the x86 architecture, which it natively supports.

umm... I don't think there are any more 'that's... maybe? ^.^'

Woohoo!  Welcome to the forum, fellow X/K/Ubuntu user!!  ^___^
That is a very neat effect where the virtualized XP is positioned so it kinda looks like a different wallpaper on the Beryl cube.  Hopefully a future version of Beryl-Compiz will allow for real multiple wallpapers.  ^____^

When you get a chance, don't forget to introduce yourself over at the Member's Introduction thread!  ^v^

i was wondering what elive really was, how it works

I wrote a huge blurb about it here:

http://ostan-collections.net/post-32100.html#32100

But if you just want the gist of it, it's a unique 'artsy-fartsy' Linux distribution that adheres to the strict philosophy of Form over Function, and uses the Enlightenment desktop manager (as opposed to, say, Gnome or KDE).  This means the distribution is amazingly fast and detailed even on very OLD systems (minimum requirement = 100mhz w/64MB of RAM), but is also a little awkward to use since it's works very different from other desktop managers.  For instance, there is no taskbar or "start" button -- you left-click on the Desktop for the Configuration menu or right-click to pull up the Applications menu (this makes it somewhat similar to Fluxbox).

Course if you still have curiosity (and perhaps an old machine you could try it on for maximum 'wow' factor), don't forget that it's also a LiveCD and so can be tried without repercussions to your permanent system.  -.-

Oh, you didn't get that punchline?  I meant he included everything but the explanation of what a "pig" is.  Just a friendly jab at his overly-detailed response,... although coming from me, that's like the kettle calling the pot black.....  ^v^;

In any event, you're quite welcome, although I do encourage you to try out at last one distros in the near future.  Not to replace your current setup, but at least to get you acquainted with the concept of a LiveCD which is VERY VERY VERY useful for troubleshooting any system problems.  ^__^
It's one of the more revolutionary things that the FOSS community has created in recent years.  ^^

Instead of Elive, though, I would rather recommend something more well-balanced and XP-like.  PCLInuxOS comes to mind.  ^^

Hold on a sec....

*transmits telegraph message to Tsubashi to "gomenasai" repeatedly on C-chan's behalf*

In any event, let's see if I can find a solution to the unruly skydome pics.... -v-

Beryl is pretty picky about the screen resolution of your Skydome image in relation to the power of your graphics card.  A high-end graphics card could make use of a high-res 4096 x 1024 format, but a smaller one will likely end up with a white or black blank screen.  To fix this, try resizing the horizontal dimension of the skydome image your using.  For instance, if the image was 4096 x 1024, drop it down to 2048x1024.

Sure it might look squished, but as long as you keep the Animate Skydome option selected, the image will stretch out in a panaromic shot resembling its original dimensions.

Just to test this out, download one of my skydome images and see if it works for you:

You can still install neat things on server OSes, of course.  it's not all CLI's and grayscale...  ^___^

Besides, that screenshot is likely of OpenSolaris, which is the OSS version of Solaris.  True, Sun has the former head of Debian working for them, so there is still a way in hell that Solaris may at least catch up to the user-friendliness, ease of installation and overall sugoiness of modern Linuces.  And the fact that they opened up Java recently is a step in the right direction.  ^^

The only thing that's keeping them down is,... well,.... old-school corporatism.  ^___^;

Also Vista is young whippersnapper and the cube app recent,... so..... like........................ who's the wannabe here....? ^___^

Ok, I failed. That sucked in comparison to Beryl...

But...
3D functions kinda suck, be it Vista or Linux with Beryl.

I just don't see the point. I won't deny I like eyecandy to some degree, but sometimes its just excessive. Doing it the old way its faster and more effective. First screenshot taken just for the sake of it, but I don't really use the 3d Flip function. And I have tested Beryl on a friend's computer...kinda cool, but don't really see the utility, aside the 4+ desktops.
I would have disabled aero interface If it weren't for the fact that the basic interface sucks hard.

Amen to that, brother.... ^___^

Call me old-school, but while I love Beryl I really only see it as a recruitment tool.  It has some neat useful tools, but at the end of the day I just find myself unconsciously doing things the old-fashioned way.  ^^;

I tend to simplify my settings when I'm working, which is why it's easy to use 2k-chan if I absolutely need windows. Without the eyecandy, the other windows really aren't that different from 2k. Thing with Beryl, though, is I it doesn't require a lot, so running it isn't too detrimental to productivity; I can run it and forget about it. Same on my Mac.

uh? people actually use Microsoft Support?? o_O
Anyway, I usually don't mess a lot with  Windows. Only tweak details here and there to upgrade performance. Nothing much

Quote from: "Tsubashi"

so true. The only other thing I like about Vista it's the indexing thing. So much faster to find a file this way. I'm even starting to change the names of my files to actual names (not numbers..) due to this. Search tools on XP were too slow and unaccurate. And I know, Google Desktop did this before (dunno about Linux, probably too), but I never liked Google Desktop.

And that's the most important characteristic about Beryl I always hear. I don't know If it's just Microsoft incompetence or they made Aero such a resource hog on purpose. I hope it's not the later. Probably it is.

However,  2D interface are still the best. The only good reason for creating a Beryl-like interface on Windows (and that cube, by now, still lags far away from Beryl) would be to stop the exodus of people attracted by Beryl into Linux. Gotta keep the balance in the force :D

I have tried this game - it looks reeeeeally good! (I have GeForce 7600GS
video card - with 512MB DDR2 - everything were rendered smoothly - And, Gin-sama, being rendered there, looks good, decent toon-shading. =) And, everybody's PC may be different than mine, so result won't be uniform, though.) - Also, be careful with AAx (anti-aliasing) bar, on some video card, it could crash. I put it up on full level (4x), anyways.

Fullscreen (shadows are being rendered with realistic exceptions from game itself - IT does look good!!!)

Fullscreen (shadows are being rendered with realistic exceptions from game itself - IT does look good!!!)

Glad yah liked it ^^, mayb i should start a Doujin game thread or something :x.

Hey, C-chan, Nice Cray system!!!
Yes, it used powerful OS. Now we can use Cray's oldest OS (because our computer's already faster enough to support - even PlayStation 3 can run it.) although emulator's stress-inducing hardest to find.

Kewl!  Another Linux user!  ^v^

Have you tried installing Compiz-Fusion yet?
I hear the beta's relatively easy to install on Feisty.

I myself have Xubuntu Feisty on my primary computer as a backup, although I'm still a PCLOS pig!  ^___^

i have not tried compiz-fusion yet, but my friend already has it installed and says its great. I have both beryl and compiz installed on my Ubuntu, along with Metacity, but neither compiz nor beryl work due to my graphics card being horrible. I only left them installed because I actually installed Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 1.4 CD Gnarly Gnome which is essentially feisty with some cool stuff pre-installed.

Awesome!  Well, until I can get a better graphics card than this ATI Radeon X600,....................... [outload towards ATI website]  ATI RADEON X600......!!!!!  Â¬oÂ¬

....I'll have to wait till the full release.  ^^

But the videos I've seen look unreal -- unless Leopard can pull off better eye candy, those graphics seem indomitable!  ^.^

On Xubuntu I managed to get decent native Beryl performance using just the Xorg drivers, but naturally it was never quite as fast.  On PCLOS, I have fast performance using the ATI legacy driver, but Beryl is not native (rather XGL, which means a lot of conflicts with video and other GL apps.  I've tried out the proprietary drivers from the ATI website, but although they've improved considerably they still suck.  ^___^;

In the meantime, I'm just living off of rudimentary KDE eye candy,... still waiting for KDE4 and permanent widgets.  ^v^;

Funny how my junk computer I recently gave away -- an old HP pavilion 1.4ghz with a Nvidia Geforce2 GTS -- managed to run Beryl better.  (albeit still on XGL)  ^^;

Post by: Tsubashi on October 01, 2007, 06:27:33 am
It's actually a combination of things. It was originally intended to be a screensaver (http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/lotsablankers/lotsawater.html) but with the help of Backlight 2.0 from freshlysqueezedsoftware.com it becomes a very cool desktop background (with a few source code modification to improve performance on Sazaki-chan). Unfortunately, I I can't seem to find Backlight 2.0 anywhere on the web anymore! So I've
put a zipped package (http://ihatesnow.org/Bklgt.tar.bz2) up on my server if you'd like to try it out. I can't remember if it needs configuration, but I think it ought to work

Added after 6 minutes:

Okay, checked on one of my older Macs and it seems to work just fine. But I sorta packaged that tarball funny so I'm going to fix it ^^'
File will be back in a minute!

Added after 21 minutes:

Just tested it on a clean OS X install, and it worked fine, so I'm confident it should work. File is back up too.

Though a word of caution, the can be quite processor intensive, so if you intend to actually use the computer, I recommend toning down the frequency and detail levels of the screensaver and then setting Backlight's processor priority to twenty (20) (available in Backlight's options). Then it runs decently on a higher end system (most any Intel Mac)
Have Fun!

*relatches onto Bella-san for safe measure*

Yeah, not sure what's in the Fisher Price theme, but XP runs helluvalot faster with the older (and some would say more functional) 2K/98 look.  ^.^

BTW, great news!  ^v^

Puppy Linux 3.0 is out and it's FANTASTIC!!!  ^V^

Not only is it the first offical GPL'd release of Puppy (I didn't realize it before, but the versions we used were only LGPL and before that... *SHOCK*... semi-proprietary... @o@), but it's also introduced some Slackware code.  And from what I've read, it's also compatitble with Slackware packages/applications!  ^v^

This opens up a whole and brave new world of app availability for Puppy-chan, although since this happened very recently (last week), it'll take some time before you really start to see this work wonders.  ^__^

Wow........ you like............. really love stubby panels, don't ya.  ^__^
Very psychadelic in a cool kinda way.  And look! you got your My Computer icons in there like you wanted!  ^v^

And I still think FluxBox freaks me a bit, but I'll take what you say to heart and try it out slowly and thorougly (via DSL probably) when I get my Asus 3ePC.  ^^
(although it really does a number on the Amarok theme.... ^.^;)

Played with Mandriva 2008 a little more while I was in the middle of the Leopard demo surrounded by OSX users.  Very sweet, cause no one knew what the heck i was using (although they did know about the *Buntus), yet they still loved that sweet sweet Compiz Fusion.  ^___^

I was just happy got 3D and overall graphics settings working properly instantly, and even though I don't use wireless, I managed to connect for the first time ever (on ANY system) into the Apple wifi without so much as batting an eyebrow.  ^__^
(well actually, I still had to go to the connection menu and pick a network, but I was honestly expecting something much more complicated)

Wanted to post here, but didn't last long,... too many users I suppose, since network congestion disconnected me and most of the Macsters.  ^___^'

Very very impressed,.... although this just means I'll eagerly await PCLinuxOS 2008, I may stick it into an auxiliary partition to get used to it.

In any event, couldn't take a screenshot so I'll post one of the pictures from a review.

Also attaching a screenshot of Leopard, because that was also pretty sweet tonight (Time Machine graphics are gorgeous).  ^_______^

Pitkin, either that's an awesome theme or Windows or Linux, or you've got some sort of Amiga based OS...?

Though the theme on the window there seems sorta familiar from GNOME or something...

Yo Pitkin-dono!  ^v^
I'm quite confuzzled as well,.... that's certainly Gnome, but doesn't look a thing like Fedora Core.  On the other hand,....

....

*coos*  I did hear of a special Linux windows manager that imitates the Amiga Workbench, so my guess is that you've used it.  Coupled with Alfamille's splendid wallpaper, and presto!  Insta-Win!!!  ^v^

...

Just add water, though.  ^.^

Speaking of which, I'm loading up a quick screenshot of gOS at its best.  ^v^
Notice the number of applications available to download via Synaptic.  ^^

*beams*

Thanks for the nice comments, Bella-san, C-Chan. ^__^ However, behind that desktop is nothing more mysterious but Fedora 8 with, not Gnome, but xfce window manager. ^^ I'm positive that the impression of Amiga-based OS or Workbench imitation (which sounds yummy *_*) comes mainly from Alfamille-san's background image (kudos to C-Chan too), as the only thing I've actually done to the theme has been to change the default xfce start menu image (the mouse) into that lovely red'n'white Amiga ball in the bottom-left corner. ^o^ My OS starting splash screen has Commodore logo on it, too. <3 Wanted to have all niceties.

Gnome doesn't allow as nice customization as xfce, or rather, it's not easy enough to do for a computer idiot such as myself. ^^;;;

Oh, and finally, huge thanks to Fedora-Tan who always helps me when problems arise; without him I'd probably have no computer at all currently. ^^

That would explain why I recognize the window manager, I must have seen it on Zenwalk :P

I guess the lack of a dock of some kind threw me off...every OS (two XD) running xfce I've used has had one...

Aa sou, so I was half right anyway,... that is Fedora Core.  But how stupid could I be to confuse XFCE with Gnome!  ^___^
I mean I know they are inherently similar (right down to the double control panes), but come on I've only been using Xubuntu for like 4 months straight.  I suck,... baka C-chan...  ^^;

Well the Amiga Ball did erase all references to Fedora Core, so I guess that's where my initial confusion was.  ^__^
But yes, if you ever used AmiWM, your desktop would be even MORE unrecognizable. ^^;

Keep in mind that C-chan knows how to put 2 and 2 together, and realized very quickly that the more often he makes fun of the Darknight, the more artwork the Darknight produces, and more importantly, the FASTER he finishes it.  So the C-chan has since developed a genius plan to seed this super inspiration -- via a targeted pissage method -- to the Darknight whenever a lull is in effect.

Hence,... as they say,... the proof is in the pudding.  -v-

Actually, not really a custom version of PCLOS,... just the same thing with a fancy nickname and a lot of stuff removed to fit the unit's SSD.  If anything, the project will probably slip back upstream to PCLinuxOS, so that an EeePC or general UMPC build option can be made available.  ^.^

Still working beautifully though, and best of all it's my first semi-developer work!  *misplaced pride* *misplaced pride*  ^>^

Wow!  A giant Osaka!  Aside from being cute, I'm obliged to love it for other reasons.  *v*

As for how to post the image rather than just the link, you need to surround the URL address of the picture itself with "img" tags like shown here:

Code Select
[img]http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/12056/My_Desktop.jpg [/img]

The result will look like this:

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/12056/My_Desktop.jpg)

But like I said before, try to just "attach" desktop wallpapers to your posts.  Try to limit uploads to your User Gallery for OS-tan artwork as much as possible.  ^^'

Ahhahahahah..... heh.

After having the same wallpaper for almost 2 years, I decided to try something new. Still, nothing too complicated.

I can concur.  If my wallpaper doesn't change after every 10 minutes, I think I'd die.  *v*

Oh, I'd love to give it a try, yet I'm afraid of M$goons XD (BTW, I'm only half-joking) So, is that running on you EEEPC? Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Tsubashi on January 02, 2008, 01:12:34 am Quote So, is that running on you EEEPC? I wouldn't think so. The EeePC's screen is closer to a 16:9 aspect ratio, as opposed to the 4:3 ratio of that last pic. Then again, just a guess ^.^ And as long as I'm in the thread, I do believe I'm a bit overdue on my Gentoo screencap ^^' (http://yui.interhosted.com/images/BBS/XFCE.png) Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: C-Chan on January 02, 2008, 01:43:51 am Fufu.... Wrong on first 2 accounts, right on last one (Tsubashi's). That ReactOS screenshot isn't mine, just one of the random desktops I pluck off the internet from time to time. However, I did just download a copy (the installer version -- the LiveCD one doesn't seem to work) and tried it on my virtual machine. Kinda cute,... but indeed, it's REMARKABLY similar to Windows 2000. ^___^' Have heard of attempts to install it on the EeePC, but with the usual outcomes of trying to install lesser-known stories (xyz works, but no wifi, ACPI, etc.). Tsubashi-dono, your Gentoo is looking viewtiful. ^____^ *stares gaping at Inkscape 0.46* *SWOONS*.

I figured, since I had it up I might as well make note, ne? ^v^ Quote Isn't Gentoo a difficult distro to get running? I remember reading the kernel needs to be compiled before it can run... Well, Gentoo certainly isn't a point and click install (though I've heard there is a GTK graphical automation script...). It's well documented, and not very hard. It is definitely not a distro for people who are afraid of the command, though. Plus, technically every distro needs a kernel compiled. The difference is whether you have a pre-compiled kernel, or whether you do it yourself. Quote You've tried ReactOS as well? I haven't given it a thorough run through yet, but yes I have. One can get very bored while waiting for a 4000 page document to print... -_-' Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: C-Chan on January 11, 2008, 05:01:12 pm Fufu... speaking of which,...

Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: C-Chan on January 12, 2008, 08:16:08 pm Try running the ReactOS install CD in this: http://www.virtualbox.org/ Personally, I find it to be the best desktop virtual machine as far as performance, cross-platform compatibility, and price [=free] is concerned. :) And in any event, that's how it worked for me. Speaking of which, here's me with VirtualBox running the latest gOS: (http://ostan-collections.net/annex/Images/screencap01.jpg) From what little I've seen so far, it looks like a BIG improvement over 1.0. The dock is more OSX-style, the Google bar less annoying, the effects more polished and the layout more mature. I definitely have to commend them for the quick and diligent improvements.

Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: C-Chan on February 13, 2008, 04:24:51 pm Quote Ooooooh....I always assumed an EeePC wouldn't have enough system resources to run any kind of window manager like that... For some mysterious reason, PCLinuxOS runs far faster and snappier than in the AsusOS. So 3D graphics that usually choke along in the custom Xandros build run okay in PCLOS. Compiz Fusion is particularly smooth, and its zoom in function is extremely helpful in such a tiny screen. ^^ As far as storage, you're already cutting it at 4GB, and neither modern Linux nor Windows could possibly fit anything useful inside a 2GB footprint (the 2G models). But since we're using a compressed file system for EeePCLOS, we can cram an entire production suite similar to the one in the AsusOS inside a 600MB footprint. And that includes Open Office, mind you. v' If EeePCLOS can be made to work flawlessly on a 2G model, then we can actually help make the$300USD model commercially viable!  ^.^

Question:  did you make this unattended edition of Windows XP yourself using something like nLite, and with a legally-purchased license of Windows XP [whatever] edition that, AND to replace a preexisting installation on a single computer?

Or did you grab it from somewhere?

Any unofficial revision and redistribution of Windows XP is bound to tread on murky legal waters of some sort, so I'd be careful.

Consider rereading the standard EULA:

that much, mostly for torrenting the files or other stuff which doesn't involve
browsing... And, Firefox's also CPU-friendly.)

BTW, I also like the firefox, since it has the easiness of the plug-ins and

FAT always worked (well not exactly since 0.01 but it can be expected the same way ext2 support can be expected from every self-respecting Linux). NTFS used to make issues but that became good by now as well. My bro rescued the data from an NTFS harddisk which the windows wouldn't recognize with a live CD.

Hello peoplez,
I'm back and packing something very.... large.... today.....

Contrary to what it may seem, I in fact DO NOT own a Mac.  I'm just babysitting this one for a friend of mine for about 3 months or so.  It's very great for watching movies while I work on my beloved EeePC's.  ^^
Functionality is not what I thought it would be, but I might just need some time to learn the ol' girl.  She's still *Nix based,... kinda.... ^.^

And to supplement the Penguin God's answer, the distribution I'm working for (EeePCLinuxOS) relies on a Fat32 partition to set up the Live environment + accompanying Changes File.  It works best given the limited space constraints of an EeePC 2G or 4G, although an 8G can comfortably support a normal install (or at a least a Poor Man's install with an Ext2/3 Changes partition).

Title: A couple desktop images
Post by: Robert on March 25, 2008, 12:35:52 am
Hi,

The one with the translucent windows is a picture I took years ago just to look fancy. I don't actually use terminal windows like that because it'd be too difficult for me to read; I use black text on white. At the time, I had the desktop background cycling between two images of  Panther-tanidentical pose but different in color and one had a tail I think, so the images faded back and forth slowly like portraits in Disneyland's haunted mansion (now the haunted gallery is back to lightning flashes). The lower right terminal window has a bunch of flower photos I'd taken of tulips and lilies, thus the filenames.

The image with all the widgets is to show you the Tiger-tan widget. You can change what she talks about. I changed it at one point to get words from a Tigertan BBS and I tried translating some of the Japanese using machine translation.  Since the latest mac OS is Leopard, she says things such as (going by memory), "I still love you... Tell me you love me!"

I don't normally have desktop icons so huge, but I wanted to show the Xenon design used to represent the hard drive. A friend mocked me for having a generic default computer name, so I re-named it after the Xenon pinball machine.

The pinball display shows what I'm working on, but it looks bad because all the graphics are simply placeholders and I'm working on the design itself.

Nah just kidding.  Here you go [attached below], but as you can see it's nothing really.  In fact,... the program is literally that,... nothing.  ^__^

It's the first part of a really good tutorial that I'm beginning to read that will help me learn how to use Kdevelop and QT Designer, the two main programs needed to create KDE programs:

http://women.kde.org/articles/tutorials/kdevelop3/

(Oh and if you're wondering from the title, yes, the tutorial was made by an all-female staff it seems, or at least for the most part.)  ^^

Actually haven't gotten too far in it because I'm taking a little time off to learn the C programming language first, just so I can get better understand C++'s roots.  I should be done with its introductory book today.  ^___^

(and I've also been building a giant piÃ±ata for a friend's daughter, but that's another story)  ^.^

Gotta go, but will return later today for my usual visitation rounds.  ^^

In the meantime, a small screenshot of the newer KDevelop....

QT4 Designer is a Graphical User Interface design tool that works with QT4, the latest of an excellent cross-platform application development framework developed and dual-licensed by Trolltech.

The screenshot shows development work on Marble, which is a kind of no-frills mini-Google Earth that can be integrated into the new KDE4 desktop environment.

However, point of fact, Google Earth WAS built with QT, so I guess the similarity is not accidental.  ^___^

Well, errm... errr.... Well it's Vista. I got my hands on one and i had to see what i was thrashing, and i have to say:...Big mistake...
It takes up a whole GB for the bloody desktop, it's also helping itself to the processor real good and the standard windows games (patience minesweeper etc) require hardware acceleration from my videocards!!!
So it sucks, if it weren't for the fact that my anime is flying in because uTorrent is going at 70k instead of 7k and my SLI finally works like a charm and i finally get good framerates in games...

Perhaps you should be sitting down for this...

I hate to break it to you... but that isnt a program.  Its a one shot video/animation someone made.  We have looked high and low and across the interwebz already.

Your not the first pilgrim to come here looking for it, either. When that video got posted our membership count here skyrocketed, with every single one saying the same thing "I saw this video on youtube and Im looking for that program!"  And we told each of them the same thing "It does not exist"

If you look around I belive there is a thread where people are discussing making one, you could look into that. But Im afraid that your search for that one ends here.

eh, before my membership was made here, i understood that clearly.. careful study of these videos showed the same desktop and their icon positionings.. [ what was clever was..say it is how thru video trickery clip overlapping clip trick if that how it was done..] how that person postioned his icons over the ones that are static on the video clip of that xp-yan, so when he clicked on the icon that looked like a folder(?) or shortcut to a browser(?) but if a clip over a clip the window shouldn't dominate over the flash image/video like the one i posted above..who ever did that, gave props to this forum[ well to the general OS-tan Community] in the title credits..
however it is done it WAS done..so it exist in some form or another..
as an amature coder of yahoo exploits, i can sometime see the exclusiveness to not 'share' the trick to readily..thus giving themselves an aura of 31337!..
but knowing the basics.. and to those who may know much more..
to see that done it brings a challenge to reproduce it...
in my search to bring it a reality to my pc brought me to the point i am now with my desktop, the 3d desktop, my backgrounds, widgets, docklets..etc.. all in one month..so pardon me for being optimistic, if their is a will there is a way ;)

Well, i already do like Vista...

But the problem is Vista is kinda like 2 things in one...

On one side you have a gaming platform, wich is (or will be) able to run games really nicely, and therefore is basically just an evolution of XP...

On the other hand however, they (M$) smothered Vista with unneccesary (and unnecesarily demanding) eyecandy and trinkets, slowing down (or crippling) the system... So, basically if they make a sober, stripped version of Vista, like XP, but with better gaming api's (like an evolution of XP), then it will be a good (for M$'s doing) windows...

So, yeah, I love it and hate it...

I'm afraid to show myself at the MEWXPZLFUDAWV club...  :D

as an amature coder of yahoo exploits, i can sometime see the exclusiveness to not 'share' the trick to readily..thus giving themselves an aura of 31337!..
but knowing the basics.. and to those who may know much more..
to see that done it brings a challenge to reproduce it...
in my search to bring it a reality to my pc brought me to the point i am now with my desktop, the 3d desktop, my backgrounds, widgets, docklets..etc.. all in one month..so pardon me for being optimistic, if their is a will there is a way

Well I can certainly appreciate the can-do spirit, especially since you feel optimistic to recreate something which clearly would take quite a bit of time and effort to reproduce.  As you say, when there's a will, there's a way. :)

It's been a while since I've seen that video, but if memory serves (and your description is accurate), the XP-tan startup affect can be reproduced given the following "ingredients":

1) A video recording of a full Windows XP startup, right from the initial splash screen.

2) A full-colored animation of XP-tan -- judging by the overly-smooth movement, likely a Flash piece or other similar vector art format.

3) An overlay layer on top of this for any objects that superimpose above XP-tan -- if it's folders, then static duplicates of them cut out from the first layer will do.  For the mouse, a simple pixel-art recreation of the mouse or even a vector-drawn recreation of it) will do, and can be moved freely during the animation process.

4) The Windows Startup sound -- this can either be a direct recording, but it's likely more efficient to use the actual WAV sound, and then simply insert it during the video authoring.

5) A voice for XP-tan -- probably the hardest part unless you're willing to use another language, or have a Japanese
[girl] friend.  ;)[/list]

All the elements can then be brought together beautifully, either through Flash, Premiere, Cinelerra or iMovie, depending on what you have on hand, and then published as an AVI file.

So impossible it is clearly not -- the only real challenge is in the matter of time-consumption, which is generally the largest impediment to such a project.  At least that's been the greatest impediment to all of MY projects....  ;D

In any event, that's enough about that.

Smokester, I'll reply to you about that at the Club,....

For now, here's a little tribute to the Post Your Desktop thread (remember that? :P ), which is also a tribute to something fairly recent....

Oh! Right. Now, since this is some desktop-related thread, I'll guess it's cool to ask desktop-related questions too, ne?

HERE WE GO~

As I've previously mentioned, I've just gotten myself a second monitor (22"wd LCD btw), so now I'm running dual. BUT! Here's the annoying thing: I dunno how to set different backgrounds on them. It just takes up both. When I play games, the main monitor uses the game, and the secondary changes wallpaper resolution (but other res remains), but if I try to multitask between the apps (like I have Winamp in secondary and something like, say, NHL 08 in the primary, and just slide over and try to change songs by klicking on something in the secondary) alt+tabs out of the game and goes back to desktop. Is there any way to fix this, so I can multitask without having to take constant ALT+TAB shit?
Also, if I open a video file (in any player that is not flash or browser-embedded otherwise) in the secondary, my primary automatically switches to showing that video in fullscreen - all while the secondary is still showing it windowed.

TL;DR - SHIT SUX, HALP PLZ?

In any event, now that I'm overrun with netbooks and have also retired from semi-development, I've taken some time to try out a bit of the competition (relative to EeePCLOS).  Some of the distros are flat out awful, but others deserve honorable mention and/or a tip of my hat.  This one below, despite being a tad sluggish on my EeePC 701, is actually surprisingly nifty, and certainly does show off the marketability of Ubuntu Netbook Remix for netbook OEMs.

Now I'm just waiting to give Mandriva's new "netbook remix" a shot -- I'm curious if they borrowed anything that my group worked on or not.  -v-

Wow! That eeebuntu looks cool! How does it compare to eeePCLOS?
Title: Post Your Desktop
Post by: C-Chan on September 22, 2008, 02:26:56 am
It's hard to compare, since Ubuntu Netbook Remix has far-and-wide corporate backing, and plus there was already plenty of prior support for Ubuntu on the EeePC (thanks in part to eeeXubuntu and earlier builds of eeeBuntu).  By contrast, EeePCLOS was always a niche project even within PCLOS itself, so getting help for anything system-related from the devs was oft-times like pulling teeth.  -.-'

Ubuntu NBR is supposed to operate better on netbooks with Intel Atom processors -- however, it performs well enough on the EeePC, and it's unaccelerated boot time is not bad at all (45-50 seconds).

Actual operation is sluggish compared to EeePCLOS (especially with movies), but not overbearingly-so (and not worse than Xandros).  Once the CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor is installed, it's easy to underclock/overclock the CPU to get either long battery life, or optimum performance.

The UME-launcher is very nice, the best one of the market netbook UIs bar none.  However, it's not entirely responsive yet owing to the beta-ish nature.  Still, what I like about it is that the Add/Remove Software option is prominently visible here -- and most new software is automatically added to the launcher.  This is an OVERWHELMING improvement over the AsusOS and the AcerOS, which try to force you to keep the desktop launchers frozen in time.  ^___^'

The system only offers a full installation -- since EeePCLOS uses a compressed install, our system will always provide the user with the most usable space from these small devices.  However, the full install makes sense for the newer machines, which either have a hard drive or offer much larger SSD drives (8GBs and greater).

Not to mention that SD cards are so cheap nowadays -- I purchased a 16GB one for my B-day, and still can't get over how accessible these things are versus how they were only a year ago!  @.@

All in all it's a good system, but I'm not going to settle for anything at the moment.  The Mandriva one interests me quite a bit, especially since it boasts fast boot times as one of its features.  Given that the Fastinit Reimplementation group tested their thing with Mandriva, it makes me curious to see if they used that (or something approximating that model).  ^^

So for my first post in this thread in forever, I decided to provide some neat examples of how even a low-end PC can composite desktops.   Interesting note, despite xfwm (XFCE default window manger) having built-in compositing, it tends to run more sluggishly than using xcompmgr with KDE/Openbox.  Anyway, I should also note that I can not take credit for the Morrigan walls, they were done by a guy who calls himself ARK.  He seems to be making these all the time, and he is really good.  I must warn you, while I do not think there is any actual nudity in his walls, they tend to be highly suggestive and would not class them all as SFW.

Entirely custom-made wallpaper, half inkscape, half shoopdawoopage.

With extra woopage.  Not bad, not bad at all.  ;)

Anyway, I should also note that I can not take credit for the Morrigan walls, they were done by a guy who calls himself ARK. He seems to be making these all the time, and he is really good. I must warn you, while I do not think there is any actual nudity in his walls, they tend to be highly suggestive and would not class them all as SFW.

Naaaaaaaaah... could've sworn she were a puritan.  :)

KDE, using Openbox, xcompmgr compositing, kinda Halloween-themed wall.

Wow, that's a hodgepodge of elements.  Never thought of replacing Kwin with Openbox -- gives it an interesting XFCE-like flavor.  Thought that was Simdock, but based on the shape and reflection of the dock floor, pretty sure it's Avant WN.  :D

XFCE, using xfwm compositing, Halloween-themed wall.

I see you like your XFCE panels minimalistic.  I usually end up cramming them Full o' Crap.  :p

The OS is pretty standard fare these days... but I can't help but feel inexplicably drawn to this picture.  Probably cause of the giant mermaids.  ^.^

Better be carefull since if you messed up with the mermaid, especially with the named Mail Breaker (If I'm not translated it wrong), A guy with HUGE wrench will come to you while yelling

I think the talking killer whale speaketh truthfully.  So says the talking killer pig....  Â¬Â¬

In any event, the verdict on Mandriva 2009 + KDE4 is in....

I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ^v^

Certainly not for the faint of heart as there's lots of first-product bugs to slug through.  But once there out of the way, the true potential is unleashed.  ;)

Sorry to say time is short, but I know I'm gonna have fun with this.

Will be right back to continue...

Wow!  I disappear for freakin one week... ONE WEEK!  ...and Acher shows up out of the blue.  Long time no see and good timing (the extra posts are welcomed).  ;)

What a Linuxy icon theme you have (I know it as "Crystal SVG").  :P

Deep in the recesses of the kDE4 Subversion files there is experimental support for multiple wallpapers, making it the second Desktop Environment (besides Enlightenment) to have that capability natively.  Would've tried to play around with it, but too busy playing with Intrepid Ibex still.  ;D

Speaking of playing, I got a little curious about Plymouth in Fedora Core 10.  Virtualbox is probably not the best place to show it off, but did like everything else I saw.  Has a very nice Gnome setup, but the KDE4 one is en par with Mandriva's.... -v-

So shiny....is it running Compiz?

BTW, I finally... finally... googled Kawaii Radio. It certainly delivers what its name promises (But somehow I now want to go out and find all of SOUL'd OUT's records).

Uhm...not my screenshot, but hopefully it will be someday if I can get a powerful enough computer to run a good emulator and a hobbyist license!

Nope. ^__^ It's on pure Kwin4 Compositing -- think of it as a native version of Compiz Fusion for KDE4. The plugins and effects definitely share a lot of similarities and it certainly helps cut down on resource use not having to load a separate composite manager on top of kwin. Unfortunately, since the KDE4 codebase still requires more optimization (easier to do later once everything is written and running stable), KDE4+Compositing is still a bit of a resource hog. It's no small wonder they call it the "Vista" of the Linux world. -v-; Quote BTW, I finally... finally... googled Kawaii Radio. It certainly delivers what its name promises (But somehow I now want to go out and find all of SOUL'd OUT's records). It's funny how much I liked the Gurren Lagann music it played regularly, even if I didn't realize at the time it was from Gurren Lagann (or what "Gurren Lagann" was). Then again, also watched Ichigo 100% because of Kawaii Radio, and it sucketh.

I once used WindowBlinds on XP...it was fun for awhile and I was a bit bummed out when the demo was up. Afterward I thought about using the UxTheme multipatcher (which was a free modification which would allow XP to run 3rd party themes) but I thought it too risky to try out. Now I just go with the plain old Windows Classic theme, which I like 'cause fancy themes get on my nerves quite quickly.

Unless you have a program installed to manage the icons (rox-filer, for instance), the desktop for fluxbox will, by default, not have any icons. For an example, let's take my desktop, it's default environment is KDE, but I primarily use fluxbox because it's much more lightweight. Now normally, Firefox (or any of my other browsers) will save to the desktop by default, leaving the screen a cluttered mess (when I haven't decided to sort the files yet), but because I use fluxbox, I hardly even notice how much crap I've downloaded until I open a file manager. Anyway, I thought I'd provide a little explanation for those unfamiliar with fluxbox... Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Smokey on March 23, 2009, 10:58:11 pm Oh, that's not good for me...

Liek mucho grande. Shame about the watermarks, but I guess that's a given. No chance of sizing those down to something less obvious and more shoved-into-a-corner? That'd increase the appeal tenfold, I believe...oh, well. Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: AnimeTheme on August 16, 2009, 06:00:07 pm A plain-enough desktop got an ANIMATED boost...

I know it's hard to get by, but I'd focus more on getting on animated movements if you can get something good on that front. Then again, those can be quite annoying at times, so it's gotta differ between persons... Oh, I ramble. Good job, man! Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 16, 2009, 08:34:26 pm *sneaks in the back* uhm, i've always wondered, how does one take a pic of their desktop? ._____.; Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: NejinOniwa on August 17, 2009, 01:28:39 am There's this button on your keyboard call "printscrn"...you know?

Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: AnimeTheme on August 22, 2009, 11:05:02 am I have deleted my video posted above. Obviously, I have posted it in a WRONG non-Anime forum elsewhere, where some people obviously can't get where the intended focus of that desktop is (i.e. the desktop animation concept), and think it is retarded, socially disordered, terrible, etc because they think there are some hand-drawn half-naked "lolis" (LMAO) on it, while they have NO problems using a full-screen half-naked (or actually naked) woman as the wallpaper (ROFL), and they hate it enough to do a rating attack on my video. Anyways, here is a new desktop setup of mine. It's about "Persona 4".

Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Smokey on August 23, 2009, 11:58:08 am Your GPU is running at an unhealthy temperature there, Nej... Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: NejinOniwa on August 23, 2009, 03:46:55 pm doesn't seem that way. The red part of the meter doesn't start until like 90-ish...50 is the BOTTOM for the damn thing. Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Smokey on August 23, 2009, 05:17:38 pm Processors generally don't like temperatures above 60C... Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: NejinOniwa on August 23, 2009, 08:39:25 pm Apparently, that doesn't include the Radeon GPU's. Or the termometer is placed somewhere difficult -w-; Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: Smokey on August 23, 2009, 10:32:23 pm I don't know exactly how the tolerances are, but you could always ask to be sure... It's a shame i can't find any GPU monitors for my 2 GF9500GT's that work with Vista x64... but they seem allright... Title: Post Your Desktop Post by: NejinOniwa on August 24, 2009, 02:12:11 am Well, when I was looking around before I reflashed its BIOS, 75-ish seemed to be a pretty standard idle temp... And the fact that the fan is going at 30% under that temp means it's pretty "cool biz", too. Haha, cool biz. Har har.

Weeeell
I never actually played or owned D&D in any kind, except for NWN...

I've played other tabletops quite a lot, though. Like DoD and Mutant and stuff...I actually own every single released book of the M:UA series, except one campaign -w-;

NYRRD!! *GLOMP*

so if no D&D, you ever played WoD? i've played D&D, WoD (including vampire and changeling), and shadowrun. :3

and don't worry, we're nerdy here too. :3

very cool, both of you.

red, that kind of reminds me of something my bro told me once:

when he was in high school (2003 about) in his senior year, a kid in his class made a website for the school, where people could post funny quotes they had heard throughout the day. (150 character limit, sorta a precursor to twitter. and he published it too, so if he ever launched it, HE could sue TWITTER for copyright infringement. 8) )

now, my bro told me about this one time in particular that he was taking a history final with this really strict teacher (he would not allow the class to ask for pens, ect.), and he had finished the essay, short answer, the bubble sheet, ect. and was on the last leg of the test, 2 pages of multiple choice. well, his pen died. and then his pencil broke, and he didn't have his sharpener. well, he went to a technical school, so every student had a small knife. desperate to finish his test, he cut his hand, dipped his pen into it, and started finishing his test in blood. the teacher sees what he's doing, and, frantic, asks, "russell, what are you doing!?" my bro responds, "taking my test." teach: "what are you writing in!?" bro: "blood."

this was posted on the quote site, and after this, the teachers started using it too.
and you could ask for pens in that teacher's class after that. xD

It's a damn weird system for me to work with, although anything is weird when you've "grown up" using *nix command lines. If anything, the DOS command language reminds me more of the DEC ones... O.o

FAAAAAR too big.  Win 3.1 is basically a glorified DOS shell, and DOS only supports FAT16, which goes up to a maximum of 2GB.

Not really possible.  You could install DOS & 3.1, but as soon as you install Win 95, it'll upgrade DOS to v7.10 and trying to use 3.1 would be pointless.

Lookie here~!

(http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/156/7/3/OS2_on_OSX_by_BellaCielo.png)

Our resident old tech expert Red-Machine guided me through the whole OS/2 installation process, or actually, the prep for it. Formatting the virtual HD and opening up the OS/2 installation dialogue and all that. I wasn't sure that it installed properly-- it seemed to get stuck on the boot screen and I sorta gave up on it-- but after giving it another try, it turns out it just takes a looooooong time to boot up.

So yay, we did it! And I had been trying to figure out how to install it since, like, mid-December. Dx I think it was a good experience, now I have a better understanding of how older non-bootable OSes are installed, at least the Windows-ish ones (although I imagine those early Linux distros were the similar at least in principle, only with Minix or Unix being installed first instead of MSDOS).

Is KDE still a RAM-hogging bloated, broken pile of crap? I haven't used it since 2007, or KDE3.

I don't even remember where I found that System 7 emulator, I think it was on that weird russian website I found with all sorts of system images for emulating (also where I found that OS/2 MSVPC image and the VMWare NeXTSTEP image). There's a WICKED Apple ][ emu I found, but it costs like $50 for the full version, and that's$50 I could put toward a real Apple ][ which would be way more wicked.

You must've missed that post in /topicless; I've made nice with it. For the most part. Got it connected to the internets, which was the major issue -- finally figured out to go into YaST > network services > network settings (iirc) and configure ethernet connection, which was hella easy compared to  the baroque instructions given in most of the help sites I found (most of which involved finding and entering the IP address, subnet, router, your USERNAME AND PASSWORD FROM THE ISP LOLWTF, etc).

Aside from the fact I had a couple of kernel panics (probably due to the hardware; SUSE is a pretty heavy distro, when you factor in the compositing window manager it's a wonder it runs as well as it does) and the fact that YaST is a bit prickly to work with, it's been working fine. -v-

RED or little Red Riding Hood made by 'Endling

This is my little media/work computer in my room with an extremely small screen (Better than nothing right?) which is giving me back problems due to hunching over to read on the screen. I can't wait till I get to move my nice computer up here, then with my 1400x900 screen i'll be fine and dandy!

1400x900?  I've never even heard of that res before...

1680x1050 is a minimum these days.

Huge monitors are all well and good, if you can afford them.  My monitor screen weighs in at 1152 x 864 pixels and it suits me just fine.  Perhaps there are special circumstances which require larger sizes, but bigger is not necessarily better.  I'd avoid proclaiming a minimum size, even though such proclamations are rampant on the Web, without first determining whether or not everyone with a computing system has the ability to run out and buy the next biggest monitor size du jour.

:-\

=^..^=

P.S.:  Red-Machine, my assertions are not chiefly directed at what you wrote; but they are directed at a disturbing monitor-size elitism I've regularly encountered at (shall we say) various image boards.  Sure, who wouldn't like to have a really-big monitor?  I certainly wouldn't refuse one, were it given to me; but my economic priorities are of necessity elsewhere.

Last I checked, 1400x900 was standard for 15 inch Laptops, quite a common size.

But 1152x864, never seen that one!
My old Power Mac's monitor is 1280x1024 I think.

Post by: NejinOniwa on January 09, 2011, 09:36:45 pm
1152x864 was the res on the old crt monitor I had on ALPHA (and as secondary on DELTA after that), so it appears - just not a lot on modern screens. And resolution is inherently a lot greater per inch on laptops, as a rule - just look at LAMBDA, wielding a hefty 1920x1080 that otherwise is most commonly seen on 24" screens on her 18,4". What more, I've seen fullHD screens on laptops as small as 15,4 or 17,3 - it gets down there, but it's better not to overdo it, imo. >_>

The actual wallpaper is here (http://flyvapnet.com/myPictures/Photography/RussiaColor01A.png).

This is a color photograph made in 1910 CE by Sergey Mikhaylovich Prokudin-Gorsky.  It's not a black-and-white photograph which has been colored after the fact:  It's a genuine color photograph.  You can see more of Prokudin-Gorsky's pioneering photography -- and discover his technique -- at....

The Empire That Was Russia: The Prokudin-Gorskii Photographic Record Recreated (A Library of Congress Exhibition) (http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/empire/)
The photographs of Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii (1863-1944) offer a vivid portrait of a lost world--the Russian Empire on the eve of World War I and the coming revolution. His subjects ranged from the medieval churches and monasteries of old Russia, to the railroads and factories of an emerging industrial power, to the daily life and work of Russia's diverse population.

A large collection of Prokudin-Gorsky's photographs can be found at Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky - Color Photographs of Russia before the Deluge: Index 1 of 159 (http://prokudin-gorsky.ath.cx:8081/index.html).  A good summary of his life and work is located at Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergey_Prokudin-Gorsky).

Being "ripped off" when it comes to buying an old computer is subjective. But I do agree that that computer falls in the range of machines that I wouldn't spend a lot of money on (the big bucks are reserved for either very OLD or brand-new machines). -W-

good for you for being good in history. -w- i've always loved it m'self, but not the stuff they continually rehash (colonial times, revolution, civil war, etc). mostly the period between 1890-1950 (mainly the 1890's and 1920's) and other cultures (like japan, india, and russia, especially the february revolution).

i like the screencaps. though you might consider making either a more basic or a more polished default screen for canary. but that can be saved for later. ^^

any thoughts on what sets canary apart from other linuxes? :3

i think im starting to be an apple fan x3 I'm saving up for an iPod touch since thats the closest thing to a mac that i can afford. for now im using mini vmac

Anyway, screenshot of mac os 7 via mini vmac.

It's not "Mac OS 7" it's "Mac System 7", and there's no point in running it in Classic Mac mode, System 7 was designed for a colour monitor.  If you want black & white, emulate System 4 or something...

And for the record, my System 7 Performa 6200 is hooked up to the net.

Don't worry about it; been using it for fourteen years or there abouts now and I slip up calling it OS 7 all the time.  Well, at least since OSX came out.  Just keep that in mind for the future!  Not sure if you can connect to the internet from a virtualized system; an actual Mac would require a dial-up internet account and a modem of course (none of mine do/did).

System 7 works just the same in B+W, minus the color-related features. Same goes for System 6, which is what I mainly use under Mini vMac.

I've found ROMS on Mac retrocomputing sites before, but don't know how to set them up under an emulator. Nor what Classic Mac emulators are available for OSX. >>;;

Eee! You're too sweet Canary. ^.^

Good luck on saving up for a Mac! It's an awesome goal to have. I'm not sure what you have in mind (new or used, high performance or hobby machine), but always consider the used computer option; Macs tend age quite gracefully and can be found at reasonable prices.

I dunno why, but I don't like PCs very much. They're not very stylish imo. Kubuntu is really cool looking, I think. i test drove it earlier today.

Yes, indeed, I have it on my computer. Very cool program.
The app is a bit lacking though (compared to what the program does), so I downloaded the app you see that is "Non-Pcs". It's very substantial, even having a list of all Apple keyboard commands.
You can actually see the Mactracker icon near the bottom of the dock on my iBook from earlier :D

And since I'm on a roll today.

Therefore, Linux and I have decided to kidnap Nanami, arm her with Lil' Slugger's baseball bat from Paranoia Agent, and begin systematically brainwashing everyone into believing that she's always been part of our clique

The Classic Macs are fun to work with for retrocomputing purposes.... if you actually want to do srs bsns, I wouldn't recommend anything before Tiger. Even Leopard. The older OSX releases really aren't all that stable....

Some Classic Mac goodness I'm seeing here! :)

For my first semester of college, most of my papers were typed up in Mac Write 5.0 running under Macintosh System 6.0.8, which was in turn running under Mini vMac.  I had to transfer the files to OSX by opening the disk image I saved the files in to. Part of that was because Mac Write had a page count and Text Edit (OSX's word processor) doesn't (or at least not by default?), though mainly because System 6 is still great to work with. :D

@Canary: Is that System 7-tan drawing finished? :-P I like playing around with that background maker in the Control Panel.

@Bella: How did you get those widgets to be on the desktop at all times? Is that a Snow Leopard-only feature, but I can't seem to find it.

That is so awesome that you used Mac Write and System 6 to write your papers, Aurora. ^^

I wish I could acquire System 6 images/get it running in Mini vMac... how I can get 50-year-old big iron emulator going and can't make sense of Mini vMac will forever baffle me. -.-

As for widgets on your desktop:
1) Make sure your account has admin privileges
2) Copy/paste this into your Terminal:

Quote
defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES

3) Open up Dashboard, click and hold down on a widget, then close Dashboard. The widget will appear on your desktop.

This is the desktop on what was my main PC for about 6 months last year; taken toward the end of it's life. It's CPU fan was already a bit worn out when I bought it, and my mom refusing to turn on the air conditioner for the first month of summer didn't help it at all; as it died in early July. I pulled it out of service before the processor could burn up, but sadly, the type of fan I need (One with an obscure plug that only Dell used) is no longer produced, and using a large box fan (Like what you'd use to cool a garage) to cool it is too noisy for regular use, so this PC is officially dead.

Wow! It looks so different, yet still kinda recognizable! How is it, performance-wise?

It runs pretty well if you strictly use Windows 3.x software with it; it does try to run software designed for the retail version of Windows 95, although it rarely works right from what I've seen so far. It does run better than build 58s, but since this is from later into development, that's to be expected (Also, 58s is a bit weird interface wise. I'll dig up a picture and show it here later).

can i have a copy of that 98-tan desktop background? *w*

Sure. It's right here:

Yeah. Some believe that Microsoft never even made a prototype of it before that project and Neptune merged to form Whistler, and ultimately, Windows XP.

Also, while on the subject of prototype versions of Windows, here's what Chicago build 58s (The earliest known functional prototype of Windows 95) looks like:

(http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x283/The_Real_PentiumMMX/Desktops/Winchicagodesktop.png)

This version looks and feels like some hybrid of 3.11 and 95; having features of both blended into what's best described as Microsoft Chop Suey. Also, being such an early build, it can only handle software designed for 3.x; the stuff actually for Windows 95 is out of it's league (Typically ending in a BSOD of epic proportions).

It's the Start bar; although it works a bit differently than in other versions.

As for the wallpaper, that's actually what it's set to by default on this version; in fact, it displays a message saying "This prerelease version of Windows is under construction" after it boots

Here's a double-whammy from my main PC:

(http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x283/The_Real_PentiumMMX/Desktops/desktop_pc9_main.png)

This is the main desktop; with a cool wallpaper of 2k-tan to help radiate this PC's awesomeness (Just in case someone doesn't get the hint when they see twin blue LED case fans in front).

(http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x283/The_Real_PentiumMMX/Desktops/desktop_pc9_xpm.png)

This is it's desktop when running Windows XP Mode; which is part of the reason I went with Windows 7 Professional over Home Premium. Got to love having an option to run old 16-bit programs; so I can still get my Chip's Challenge fix.

Anyway, this is what the desktop for 2k-on-2k Mode looks like when I'm not running it in Seamless mode; which is typically right after I start it (So no fancy wallpaper, but a cool background pattern at least)

I have one on this computer from the gallery, the one of Mac Tan with sunglasses. The rest are mine.

Though my iBook, the Powerbook and the Mac Mini have lightly edited pictures from the gallery as theirs because I do not have any art of Snow Leopard, Sonata or Tiger that personally belongs to me.

call me spoiled, but 1980x1080 is too small for me.

and my laptop is just sad.(1028x768) for a 2011 laptop costing 900.00

I don't see why hearing people rave about a certain anime bothers you so much... when I hear my friends freaking out about a show, that's usually my indication that 1) They've found gold 2) I should check it out.

I'd have never considered watching Madoka Magica if Stewart hadn't mentioned it to me; Nej inspired me to check out Star Driver; and hearing you and Aurora say good things about PSG has made me want to give that a watch, too, even though it's something I normally wouldn't be interested in. ^^'

Not an anime, just a depiction of the first Chinese pilot to test the Chengdu J-20, the PLAAF's newest fifth generation stealth aircraft

The pilot is Li Gang
This is mocking the USAF (United States Air Force) that China created a stealth aircraft that really isn't a stealth aircraft...its just a redesign of America's F-22 and the Russian PAK FA (T-50) mucked together! I'm using because I like the feel of it and I'm not a large supporter of the US military (-.-);

I'm not having a go at you here or anything, Stew.  But it really bugs me when people put shorcuts places and thay don't bother removing the "Shortcut to..." part.  I especially hate the popular "Shortcut to WINWORD.EXE" I see all the time on people's desktops.  If they're smart enough to navigate to Word's program file folder and locate the exe, then they should be smart enough to rename it.

most of the stuff winds up on the left side of my desktop, as a result of the gadgets being on the right. i wish i could clean it up, but if i move the icons, i forget about them. as a result, i leave current or important stuff on the desktop, to have easy access.

I keep my dock on the left side

Perhaps I should have worded it differently.  I maent I was not having a go at him specifically, just the general populace who do that.

And at any rate, a shortcut to My Computer is not needed.  Windows will either put one there by default, or you can open the start menu, righ-click My Computer, then click "show on desktop".  By default, it will just be called "My Computer"/"Computer" depending on your OS version, so no renaming is needed.

Nice wallpaper, although I have two quick questions:

- How did you change the icon for the Finder?
- How did you get the weather widget placed outside the dashboard?

Thanks, I made it. ^^

As for your questions:

-For changing out system icons, I use a program called LiteIcon

http://www.freemacsoft.net/LiteIcon/

You just install it, and drag 'n drop the custom icons you want to use into it. Then you have to click the "clear system cache" button and restart Finder (and in the rare cases that doesn't work, a reboot will make things work).

-Getting the Dashboard widgets onto the desktop is simple too, the instructions are here

Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Penti-chan on July 09, 2011, 05:39:06 am
I couldn't get LiteIcon to work (The DMG was apparently corrupt), although being able to move widgets between the desktop and dashboard is quite useful

Also, because I felt like it, I decided to switch the wallpaper on Asagi to something that makes me think...with Portals:

Wilhelm Germany looks strong and marching toward a stronger future (sadly that didn't happen)
Nazi Germany looks strong but dim witted (Germans didn't really think during 1939-1945 about what was wrong with the government)
Communist East Germany looks to be very serious and harsh (The East German's had it bad when the Soviets had them, no color on the buildings makes that part of Berlin look very sad...)
West Germany seems to be worried or un-easy (probably because Communism is so close to them)
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: stewartsage on July 16, 2011, 12:14:04 am
I'd say its more that Nazi Germany feels uncertain but is being lead along the path to the future by her failed sister, in turn she leads the hesitant DDR in an oversized uniform along behind while she ignores her big sis and points towards the viewer.  In turn, West Germany has completely broken hands with her sisters and while her uniform doesn't fit either she's at least got the proper bearing plus she has turned completely away from the totalitarian path.

Yup, wouldn't be Lion without Lion.

To re-install Lion (for whatever reason), hold the Option Key on startup and chose to boot from the recovery partition Lion has built in. It will then re-download the OS.

Quite nifty but there is a problem to that, what if the hard drive is dead? I would replace it but to find I need to buy a copy of Snow Leopard and then re-install through the app store again. It seems like a painful process -.-;

If the entire HD is dead, Apple should be replacing it.

Lion can be installed on blank Hardrives though.
If you must... download Lion on one Mac, then go to the app and show package contents, there's a DMG in there. I'm betting you know what to do from that point on.

Yea, there have been instances where people need their Macintosh up and running FAST like this one French film guy I got to work with at the Pittsburgh Film Office. His Macbook got messed up but he couldn't get Apple to fix it for him due to being here in the US and his Macbook from France, my dad and I fixed the problem fast (even though we don't know French) because we knew the interface so well and we had hard disks on hand at the time.

It's time once more for the usual monthly wallpaper change; mainly focusing on Asagi and Fuuka this time

(http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x283/The_Real_PentiumMMX/Desktops/desktop_pc7_7.png)
Because I felt like it, I dug up the Konata Bliss wallpaper. I haven't used it in a long time, so why not?

(http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x283/The_Real_PentiumMMX/Desktops/desktop_mac2_2.png)
As for Fuuka, I decided to use one I found during my epic quest for wallpapers this afternoon. What's not to love about a figurine of Hatsune Miku standing in a field holding a leek?
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 01, 2011, 04:15:29 am
both are made of epic, man. i'd love to replace the standard 'bliss' on someone's computer with that (if only there was a way to do it to all my high school's computers at once!! ;^; ). and miku sure seems focused on that dandelion! xD

Out of boredom, I was tinkering with the Windows XP setup I have on Virtualbox on Fuuka; getting this result from swapping out Windows Explorer with the NT 3.51 Program Manager:

The ample breasts don't bother me as much as the anorexic-looking body. (Seriously, RIB LINES?) I'd like to see a version of this Vistan with a smaller bust and curvier body.

On closer inspection: I think this is my favorite Vistan design

(http://ostan-collections.net/imeeji/albums/userpics/11639/normal_vistahome.png)

She's physically similar enough to Chivistan to be considered the same character, but without the ridiculously huge bust and trashy outfit. And her sister is really cute too.... ^^

You know, Vista is the only version of Windows that I don't have a copy of lying around. I may not care much for that version, but there's a noticeable lack of it; seeing as I have access to every other version
Title: Re: Post your desktop
Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 14, 2011, 08:40:34 pm
the computer downstairs is vista, meaning that once i get the fleet up and running, i'll have every version from 95-present :3

@bella: i've seen so many versions of vista......at this point, i consider them to match up to:

chivistan - vista home
vistake - vista business
visbou - vista ultimate
egysta - vista enterprise

Homu is one of my heroes...

She can dual-wield a gun and a grenade without getting blown up or shooting herself.

And she sort of looks like Claes from GSG, which means she in turn sort of looks like Unix-sama too.

Fair enough.

And i should note - since I forgot before - the yuri contained within Mahou Shoujo☆Madoka Magica is not your garden variety girl on girl fanservice, a la Half The Animu Out There That Supposedly Contain Lesbian Elements. It is a beautiful love borne of yearning; basically, yuri at its finest.

Fuuka no longer has a widescreen monitor, but she's still in use with a surprisingly decent LCD monitor I picked up for next-to-nothing. Besides, I have wallpapers that will work; such as this one of my 2nd favorite OS-tan
