LiteStep and Windows 7 x64 : running them bothInstalling Litestep on Windows 7 x64LiteStep and Windows 7 x64 : running them both4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You need to download some required libraries in order for Litestep to run on
Windows. The libraries are called "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables"
otherwise known as vcredist.exe. What you will need are the 2005, 2005 SP1,
2008, 2008 SP1 to run properly (it is what the Litestep installer will be looking for)
If you currently develop with Microsoft Visual Studio (Express, Web Developer),
whichever version, your libraries should already be in place; though checking
for updates is a good idea. For good reason, I also recommend looking for
"Sec ATL" updates, they contain patches and fixes for possible security flaws within
Microsoft's code source.
I know it sounds funny, but you need to get the x86 (32-bit) and the x64 (64-bit)
installers for this reason: The Litestep program is by default, 32-bit architecture,
however the 64-bit update package (0.25 Alpha and greater) will be a patch after
you install Litestep. The 32-bit libra
How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win7A lot of people ask me how to make TrueTransparency play nice with Windows 7.How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win74 years ago in Personal More Like This
The short answer is: You can... well sort of.
Here are the general problems (I'm going to assume people with Win7 are on the 64-bit version, or Win7 x64).
1) Explorer windows are not skinned (or any 64-bit programs for that matter).
2) Explorer windows skin, but the toolbar is completely transparent.
First, you will need both TrueTransparency x86 and x64.
For your convenience, here is a zip with both (x64 can be hard to find): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7100381/TrueTransparency.zip
To skin all windows, you will need to run both the TrueTransparency.exe in the TrueTransparency x64 AND TrueTransparency x86 folders.
At this point, all windows should be skinned (with the exclusion of "special" windows like Google chrome, Command Prompt, GIMP/Photoshop, Task Manager, etc.
You may notice that the explorer toolbar is completely transparent. There are two workarounds for this.
One involves removing the too

I've been asked to write a tutorial on skinning foobar2000, because many f2k users encounter difficulties modifying skins or simply using them. I'm not an expert on the subject, I've started by installing a few skins and trying to understand how that worked ; I still think it's the best way to get a good handle on it, though a long and sometimes frustrating way. I invite you to try and see by yourself, to keep in mind that errors come all along and to share any advice, question, difficulty or anything you want to say, may you be new or expert. I also recommend to read this good tutorial (though it's partly based on outdated PanelsUI), maybe this less developed one, some of the very useful Hydr

Turns out all you really need to do is install LOSI 0.45 (or whatev the recent one is...) and then drag and drop the executable and .dll file in the 0.25 alpha build into the litestep directory. THEN (this is what I think was causing my woes) you need to download a little .exe file called setshell64: http://lsp.litestep.info/index.php?page=index;item=145
Voila! LS is working super now . Although I miss the windows 7 superbar and the fancy desktop fade (although if you get jdesk-0.75, you still get changing desktops, just not with the fancy fade effect).
I'm just happy that LS is working. Ahhhhhh I haven't had this much fun in a looooong time .

installing litestep is not a big deal. it has dependencies like any other application, and without them it will error. assuming your system meets all the requirements right now you can stop reading this and install litestep using the Omar Installer. (omar is the guy who created the installer) litestep was built using the x86 architecture so a x86 system is a prerequisite, however people have managed to install and use litestep on x64 systems.

Hello Mike! And thank you for your time in doing this interview! First off, lets start with an introduction to yourself. Anything you want to share about yourself!
Hey, how's it going? My Name's Michael, and I'm an Art Director for the Augusta Magazine, here in Augusta, GA. And in cases anybody didn't notice, I love to draw. I love to draw western style art and manga/anime art.
I'm 30 years old, and... Damn, I guess that makes me the oldest of the group members here? LOL But what can I say? I've been around comics, manga and anime nearly all my life.
I love to draw the characters from Naruto... Namely Sakura. Just everything about her character I love. And of course, NaruSaku.
1. What got you into art in the first place?
I guess it was my love of comic books such as Spider Man and the X-Men. Also, my older brother is an excellent artist as well, and seeing his art made me want

➊ Install GDIPP 0.7.6 in Registry( not in services, you will see it during the installation) , download: http://code.google.com/p/gdipp/downloads/list
➋ Copy the 2dll's in "C:\Program Files\gdipp" to "C:\Windows\system32"( for 64 users: 4 dll's: "sytem32"( for 64 bit dll's)+"syswow64"( for 32 bit dll's) ), like: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/423903436372Capture.png
➌ Restart( done)
Edit ( 12 oct 2012):
Now, i use 0.9.1 version, it works better and no replacement of dll needed ( only install it and go..!), if you use Firefox or other: uncheck "material acceleration..." in Firefox ( or other) options!!
If some characters look a little craps in some applications: make an exeption in "C:\Program Files (x86)\gdipp\gdipp_setting.xml" with your notepad.

Post-it Notes: Japanese Love Trivias (part2)The word "Konkatsu" which means "activities to find a partner for marriage". "Kon" is an abbreviation for "Kekkon", means marriage and "Katsu" is an abbreviation for "Katsudou", means activity. In Tokyo, there's a place for marriage hunting named "Konkatsu Bar" . The authors of "The Era of Marriage Hunting" cite changes in Japanese society, where traditional matchmaking -- often by so-called neighborhood aunties -- is fading away. Bosses in Japanese companies also used to match up women and men working under them -- then force the women to quit once they were married.A red cheek or hatchings on the cheek represent blushing, usually used when embarrassed by romantic feelings, while oval "blush dots" on the cheeks represent rosy cheeks. This can sometimes be confused with a scribble on the cheek, indicating injury.

We’ve gathered some interesting facts for Sasusaku, Sasuhina and Naruhina but Narusaku (Naruto and Sakura) has lots of connections in myths, legends, literatures and other categories that we've seen from the net, book references and other documents from public libraries. Most of these researched were taken from Wikipedia, Narutopedia and Wiki-couples. We also added some interesting facts from Databooks.
This researched facts were biased that means that each trivias of your favorite couples can be negative or positive.So please, avoid rants or negative comments in this journal.

This is my translation based what i've read in japanese raw:
Sakura: "I...I know that i can't do anything eventhough i love you. Whatever happens, i care so much for you, sasuke-kun. I couldn't be there for you or even stop you. All i could do is to beg and cry again. It's really despicable, isn't it?"
Sakura: "But sasuke-kun, please!...if there is a small corner (small space) in your heart for me...please, don't go! If we stick together again, i'm sure that we can go back just like the good old days, someday."
* Note: Sakura used "daisuki" (love/like) so it's romantic love because daisuki often used in love confession. But this love is different in sakura's speech. Her speech shows with the mixture of anger, frustration, and desperation but she still shows that she cares and wants to bring back together as Team 7 just like before. Sorry, i forgot to add this important side note where sakura mention " I can't do any

* Traditionally, once a man began regularly visiting a woman, they were considered married.
* In a study of friendships, japanese ranked their "Best Friend" as being closer to them than a "Lover".
* Historically, many Japanese participated in a form of courtship called Omiai. In this custom, parents hired matchmakers who would gather photographs and resumes of potential partners. When both parties agreed to a possible match, the couple would meet, typically with the families and the matchmaker present. During the first few dates, the parents and matchmaker were extremely influential in determining whether the couple should marry.
* A man may do research to discover what a woman prefers and enjoys while planning a first date.
* No physical intimacy occurs until after becoming boyfriend and girlfriend. I don’t just mean sex, but kissing and I think even hand holding. All of that c
