Text Beside Icons on the Desktop - NautilusI've decided to re-write this little tutorial for those who are interested in a more "Mac Feel" on the gnome Desktop.Text Beside Icons on the Desktop - Nautilus3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, open terminal and write:
apt-get source nautilus
sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus
The build-dep command will install all the build dependencies for nautilus.
In nautilus sorce folder you just downloaded, navigate to: src\file-manager.
Find the file named: fm-desktop-icon-view.c
Open with your favorite Text Editor and find the line:
real_supports_labels_beside_icons (FMIconView *view)
Below it you'd see this line: return FALSE;
Change it to:
On GNOME3 and Nautilus 3.x+ search for the file: /src/nautilus-desktop-icon-view.c in the directory you just downloaded.
And look for this line: "supports-labels-beside-icons", FALSE,
Change FALSE to TRUE
Save the file.
Now start to compile Nautilus.
sudo make install
Choose Text Beside Icons in the Preferences.
Nautilus now should draw Text beside ico

Note: I have only done this on Kubuntu 12.04 x64, 12.10x64, running KDE 4.8.4, KDE 4.9.2, KDE 4.9.3 so anything other than this I can not say for sure will work. I would assume as long as you have the dependencies met it should work but this is just a guess. As Always make sure to back up your stuff before trying anything new like this!

Rainmeter Workshop: Autoscaling and YouI've been beating my head against a wall working on a new suite. The hardest, and most tedious thing has been making the skins resizable. It involves a lot of simple math, and trial and error. Over the course of the next few Workshops I'm going to share some of the things that I've learned about resizing skins, as well as other cool things to do with position formulas and dynamic variables. They'll start off pretty basic and work towards more complicated topics.Rainmeter Workshop: Autoscaling and You4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I keep seeing taskbar skins that fit only one specific desktop resolution. It's possible to make a skin fit any resolution, and usually it's fairly simple. A decent grasp on simple algebra, geometry and arithmetic helps greatly though. The taskbar below fits any resolution. I'm assuming that you're somewhat familiar with Rainmet
Breaking the HabitJust curious, but do you ever tell your parents or other friends that you have a "social life" online?Breaking the Habit4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The other day, I told my mother and my sister that. I told them that that was the reason why I am on the internet so much after getting into an argument with them. And that I lied about a few things about why I'm trying to send letters to friends that "I know". They suspected that I have been socializing on the Internet more than in real life, and that they are scared that I may be hanging out with the wrong crowd. I assured them that deviantART is, in general, not like Facebook, Myspace, or Youtube. My mom and my sister said that they were upset that I lied to them to cover up the fact that I do indeed talk to people that I've never met, but they do not mind now that I talk to you guys and trust every word that you write. I am older now, and I am smarter about the Internet than I was when I was about 11 or 12; I know what I am doing.
After that long talk, I got to tell them a

Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!‘Twas the night before Christmas on DeviantArt,Happy Holidays from DeviantArt!3 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Not a paintbrush was stirring, and creators took heart.
The artists scrolled through Daily Deviations with care
Knowing kindred warm-fuzzies soon would be there.
Deviants were all swiping, all snug on their phones
While visions of inspiration across all time zones
Were zapped to their smart device, quick as can be,
At the tap of a button in a +Fav’ing spree!
When across the Interwebs there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to the Comments to see what was the matter,
“I’m bored,” the Journal wrote, “I’m on a long trip, too.
I don’t have my laptop, and there’s nothing to do.”
I cracked all my knuckles, settled down in my chair,
Then descended upon the keyboard and wrote with a flair:
“Dear Friend, did you not get DA’s early present?
We now have an app, and it won’t cost you one cent!
“On, Watch Feed! On, Browse! On, Explore! On, Today!

Infinitum Preview 1It's here: http://sdrv.ms/15m1nI5Infinitum Preview 12 years ago in Personal More Like This
Keep in mind this is a preview and not everything works!
If you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you can use infinitum as it is. However, if you are using Windows 8, you will need to create a toolbar on your taskbar to make space for the start button (see here for example: http://www.askvg.com/how-to-enable-good-old-start-button-orb-and-start-menu-in-windows-8/ ). Windows XP should use a theme with a larger taskbar (here's a good theme: http://fav.me/d5bocyw ).
If you cannot run this application, make sure you have .net 4.0 or higher installed on your computer.
I will try to make Infinitum more flexible in the next release as well as get more things to work

Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?Dante's Inferno, What's the Worst that Can Happen?2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
Technology, Why do you hate me?!?Technology seems it hates me.Technology, Why do you hate me?!?3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I love it, I'm an enthusiast about computers and mobile phones, but it seems technology doesn't have the same mind.
After spending 1600€, my desktop has abandoned me, its power supply unit is gone after some months of use, and now I have to replace it with another one, and it costs a lot of money..
My laptop battery has abandoned me, but luckily I use that computer where I can plug it to a power point..
My iPhone today decided to play me a nasty trick: when I have to take a shower, I bring my cell phone with me, to play some music, I can't use the radio, because you can't change the station XD, it's always tuned on a crappy radio station which transmits only Italian music that I hate with all my forces...
By the way, my phone works well until when I pick it up, in that moment the volume drops down, and I can't hear anything anymore..
After two reboots, the problem still remains, so I find a solution: I start blowing in the microphone and around there

Today it's Tuesday and we, on Thursdays, have Physics lessons.
All times those parasites, my classmates, ask me:- have you done Physics? Did you manage to finish the excercises?-
Well, they ask me to send them photos of the completed exercises thus they can copy what I did.
This time happened again, but I told to one of them:- don't you never manage to finish anything? Are you stupid?-
What did he sa:- eeeh, this argument is complicated- but you, as the others, didn't manage to do the previous ones too.
Plus, wanna talk about Sunday evenings?
All my whatsapp chats are usually empty, but on Sunday evenings those morons remember about my existence, and start torturing me asking:- have you done Maths? And what about Physics?-
Well, I always tell them:- no, I left all the excercises- and the next Monday, one of them always tells me:-but you said you didn't manage to do homework!- and I always answer:- I
