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

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?

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

Embedding Images and GIFs
Images on dA can easily be linked with thumbcodes.
While on a deviation page, all you have to do is scroll down and look right until you see:
Copy and paste the thumb code.
And if you want it bigger:
And bam. There you are.
If that's not good enough, you can play around with the size like this.. .

It's the thumbcode number without thumb in it...

:iconohnoesplz:The new possibility on to start a donation pool is almost a dumb feature.More amd more people send notes or beg on the artist's pages for points.Mostly these are people you don't know, who never faved or commented anything you've made.
1 point is one cent. Will they really sell their pride for 1 cent? Just wondering.
The next step is to sell their souls. There are some guys on DA who sell their faves, features and comments for points.For 200 points, they fave your complete gallery, give you a feature and watch you.Is this the way should work? I don't think so.Can someone really be glad about faves he bought?

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.

Update 1.2.0!!!!!Hi guys!!!Update 1.2.0!!!!!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Woohoo!!! We're entering a new FireAlpaca era!! 2.0!!!
Here's what's new:
- It is now compatible to brush script (script control brush).
- Preset brush for brush script has been added.
- Marker, Symmetry, Analog-Pen, etc..
- Brush script is quite flexible so please use wisely.
- The max. size of brush is extended to 1000 px.
- Brush Control displays the option menu now.
So what in the world is a Script Brush? From the little I've played with them, it feels more like your regular Photoshop or SAI brushes and they respond to the angle of the pen (in Wacom tablets and others which support this function). When you click on "Add Script Brush" on the bottom of the page, you get the option of adding .bs files without the use of a bitmap. I'm guessing they are vector-based brushes and thus they can become way bigger than a bitmap brush without losing their sharpness.
How to add a Script Brush
1- Download or locate your .bs file
2- Click on

So that's... let's say 60 issues, one issue per page, along with extra issues that were for April fools etc... it's all plenty. But then, perusing my Hellboy Vol. 1 during lunch, (as you do) I remarked on how much I love the extra sketches and covers they put at the back, or the cool stories and little essays done by other contributors. Is that something you'd like to see in your copy of Search for the Truth Vol. 1?
Well I'm a bit stretched for ideas other than 'some bonus sketches', so, tell me what you'd want to see! I'll put it in if, y'know, it's within reason. Basically I'm letting you the fans have some input on the 'DVD extras' of this book. Ohhh it's all so exciting!
