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 Win75 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
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

Photoshop Actions are the recordings of commands that can be applied to one or multiple images in Photoshop. When you press play, it applies these recorded commands. Think about changing the mood in a picture with various adjustment layers. Using an action can actually help you save a lot of time.
Which versions of Photoshop are lieveheersbeestje's actions compatible with?
All Photoshop CS versions, CS2 to CS6 Extended. My actions are not compatible with Photoshop Elements or other programs.
How can I download your exclusive actions?
You can download most of the actions at my DeviantART for free, it's easy and takes a few seconds. However I do have some exclusive actions as well, you need to pay with DeviantART points in order to get them. Want free points? Read more below in this journal.

Naruto manga is about to end and we cross our fingers to which pairings will be the end game. I wrote Doujinshi for years (Pixiv) and read a lot of manga (from shonen to yaoi). Some of you don't understand about our tradition way when it comes to Love Confessions. I will give some possible hints or clues in manga about your pairings. Remember, this is shonen jump manga. It's either naruto will end noone or end with someone he knew. It's UP TO YOU if this is truly canon or not. You can post your comment if you think your pairings are possible to become canon but PLEASE avoid rant here to give respect to sashun08. Let's respect each other, okay?

In Angelo's words...
All of my birthdays have always been about stuff. Stuff I don't want, stuff I definitely don't need.
I'm surrounded by very giving people, and I'm always honored by how gracious my friends are, but when a guy gets to a
certain age, you kinda just buy the video games and books and music right when you want them, you know?
This year, I decided to do something a little different for my birthday. I was introduced recently to a charity

Latest Thoughts On Naruto Chapter 700 And The Last Naruto The Movie(Just My thoughts).
Before chapter 700 was out,Studio Pierrot leaked images from the new movie including Naruhina and the kids and claimed these were fake which led us to believe they were until chapter 700 was released.Some sources claimed they were real but leaked early and we didn’t believe it at first and then….
We all read chapter 700 and everyone noticed the ending was weird with pairings confirmed yet not together in any panels of the chapter,We all noticed Naruto’s son looks nothing like Hinata and Himawari doesn’t look much like Naruto.We all noticed Salad followed Bolt around and seemed to pick up Sakura’s Shanaro making us believ

INTERVIEW WITH NOVOO:iconnovoo:INTERVIEW WITH NOVOO1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Where did you get your nickname novoo from?
After using my full name for almost 2 years as my username, it was time to get something new on deviantart and customize.org. novo is the portuguese word for "new", but it was already taken. So I tried "novoo" and voilá.. a new nickname was born
How did you get started in customization, was it difficult at first?
I think it was back in 2004. Screenshots with overloaded Samurize configs were the hit on internet forums. So I played around with it, did some modifications on Winamp Skins, changed a few icons, posted my screenshots on customize.org... that's it
Where did you find your inspiration from?
Mostly through music, nature and other designer's work.

The Tales of Beatrix PotterThe Tales of Beatrix Potter3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Cold winter evenings or blustery Autumn days had the soundtrack of my Mother's voice reading Beatrix Potter books out loud when I was younger. In fact, the wonderful children's books were the epitome of my childhood. The illustrations were just perfect and the stories, whilst simple, were mysterious and adventurous in their own way. Beatrix Potter was born in 1866, South Kensington, London. She was said to live a lonely life, being educated at home by a governess and so perhaps that's why she delved into a fantasy world of rabbits, geese and other traditional animals.
Beatrix's illustrations come from her copious studies of her own pets, and the animals that roamed the gardens of the places in which she holidayed as a child. The fascinating fact was that Beatrix's illustrations became greetings cards before her books were created. I see her drawings on cards in shops now and I always thought that it had developed the other way around. Her first boo

a protester is throwing back a tear gas grenade at the front line barricade of yesterday's clashes in gümüşsuyu. the amount of gas you're exposed to while doing this is very dangerous, even with a gas mask.
in the face of what happens every day, the word protest appears euphemistic. what you are seeing here is not a demonstration but a crowd defending taksim, so that people can demonstrate and 'occupy' there. yesterday saw a lot of police provocation in order to lure protesters out of the greater taksim area and arrest them, but some strong voices were able to hold back most of the less strategically minded who wanted to throw stones at the water cannons waiting beyond the barricades (a rather futile excercise).

Overview: Example skins demonstrating vertically scrolling text & using TransformationMatrix on string meters.
Premise: Create a skin that will scroll the text vertically in either direction. Then transform the scrolling text to produce "dimensional" effects.
Two skins are offered along with this description; ScrollText2Shrink.ini and ScrollText2CenterZoom.ini
ScrollText2Shrink shrinks the text as it progresses up the skin and back down.
ScrollText2CenterZoom maximizes the size near the vertical center.

barricades are the only way to keep the water cannon trucks at bay and protesters use anything they can find to build them.
in the night of june 02/03, a large crowd of protesters managed to put an end to being chased back from beşiktaş in front of inönü stadium / dolmabahçe. a hijacked crane turned the tables for a little while, pushing water cannon trucks and policemen back up dolmabahçe boulevard. the night ended by the police hitting back with full force from several sides, dispersing the protesters but unable to further penetrate the taksim area.
the taksim area has been "fortified" with se
