Colorlicious 1.2 ReleasedGet it here.Colorlicious 1.2 Released5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Changes since 1.1
• Completely overhauled UI
• Added Mac compatibility (including full retina display support)
• Added partial Linux compatibility
• Numerous miscellaneous bug fixes
At least one of you at some point is going to ask for an option to colour the actual window itself in OS X. Unfortunately this isn't possible anymore. We simply do not have access to the titlebar at all. Personas (now called lightweight themes) are the only "extensions" that can do it and they use black magic, which we are not trained in.
We are entering this add-on in a competition! If we are lucky enough to make it into the top picks from the judges, you will have the chance to vote on our add-on (or another one) and determine the best add-on in the category (or best overall add-
Pseutro - Finishing TouchesIt is almost ready for public consumption (well, it was probably better constructed than half the themes out there even a month ago), so I'll show you the mockup that it is based on: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/4019672/Pseutro/Mockups/pseutro-mockup-4-8.png.Pseutro - Finishing Touches9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just putting the finishing touches on it. We need to get the companion add-on up to scratch so we can add that new app menu button as well as a few other about:config automated tweaks to make the theme more livable as a dark theme. Other than that, we just need to give it some solid testing before we go for a release.
Colorlicious Changelog + New StuffThis isn't a compehensive changelog, but just a quick overview of what we've done:Colorlicious Changelog + New Stuff1 year ago in Personal More Like This
• Added compatibility with latest Firefox versions (14+)
• Redesigned the UI based on Microsoft web apps such as Outlook.com so that it feels more at home inside a browser tab
• Redesigned the icons and whatnot to fit the new UI
• Removed Rainbow tabs (will be coming back better than ever)
• Titlechanged pinned tabs (the ones that notify you when their content has changed, like your email web app) no longer get coloured
Now the cool new stuff that we are working on:
Today I made each toolbar button icon into a vector SVG and we are working on replacing the default PNG icons with these vectorised ones. What that means for you is, you will be able to colour your icons as you would any other element! With colour sliders and all; it should be really cool.
We keep getting all this hate on the AMO site from these AnyColor users. The problem is, AnyColor (an add-on that colours differen

-The music video is still unfinished, but it's around 2/3 done now. There are no deadlines for this project, since I'm out of school now.

-Just a few more animations to do for the Kontrabida team, and I'll be done with the current batch.
-deIz 1.5 is still cancelled.
-Draw with Me prequel/sequel is far from finalized, story-wise.

1M Downloads & GithubThis day marks a special milestone of achievement for the developers of Omnimo. A humble project that started almost two years ago reached one million downloads today. Most of you probably don't know that this project was supposed to be much smaller. When I came up with the early concept in the middle of March, I intended it to have approximately 12 panels and several text items.1M Downloads & Github2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Omnimo: The Beginning
Nothing more. However, shortly after the concept, Xyrfo joined the project. And with our combined passion and ambition, as well as with some help from others, we managed to create the biggest Rainmeter suite ever. Xyrfo did some amazing stuff for the project. Things without which it would just remain but a dream of a madman. But he did it! For that, he deserves no less recognition than I do.
And of course, we would like to thank the community for all the support! You guys are awesome! Nothing motivates doing a project better than to see people use and enjoy the product. W
Colorlicious 1.2 UpdateHey guys,Colorlicious 1.2 Update3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ben and I have released an update to Colorlicious. It now supports the latest versions of Firefox, and works on Linux and Mac OS X.
A few things to note:
Reworked the UI again.Finally got around to making a new color picker! This one should eventually make its way into Stratiform.Some options work with UX, depending on how much they change I might be able to maintain compatibility.Linux toolbar buttons are system styled so Colorlicious currently doesn't color those.You can import and export multiple presets.
Koding.com IRC?For the last couple of months I've been learning and working with nodejs and socket.io. Recently been thinking about IRC and studying commands/methods/logic for a IRC Server. I have been secretly working on a IRC Server Emulator based on Nodejs!Koding.com IRC?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
1.Nodejs is light and powerful providing optimal performance with low latency.
2.First hosted IRC server on koding.com and as so I have been able to nab the default irc port 6667.
3.Very stable IRC Server Emulator with a interesting list of commands.
4.Open to use ffor anyone who wants to join and chat!
5.Always under going development to expand the list of usable commands within the server.
Host: 184.108.40.206 or grimmirc.koding.com
Port: 6667 (not needed with most irc clients since the port is default)

A Rebuttal to Bryan BoykoThis post concerns Bryan Boyko's lengthy review-slash-rant of Windows 8's changes to its user interface on youtube at http://youtu.be/WTYet-qf1jo. If you haven't watched his video yet, please do so otherwise this post won't make much sense.A Rebuttal to Bryan Boyko10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I won't be using this post to rag on him, not exclusively anyway, but I will be calling him out where I think it's appropriate. I find his video to be a good springboard for a rebuttal amongst the sea of Windows 8 critique videos because it's a lengthy video with lots of content and points raised, he makes points and then follows them up with rationale and examples, which most amateur reviews on youtube don't do, and most of his points exemplify most of the most widespread criticisms and misconceptions I see relating to Windows 8's UI changes and why many people are unable to get past them. It's a well-known fact now that Windows 8 has polarised its userbase, but most of the criticisms I'm seeing are hitting on the wrong points.

Stratiform 3 NewsI know I said we'd have this out 25 days ago (LOL), but I forgot I had exams and assignments due for uni. The important thing is, we have been getting a nice bit of work done now that we are free. Here's some stuff you should / might like to know:Stratiform 3 News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
• The UI will be entirely Metro, unless we decide to add the ability to change Stratiform's UI at the last minute (which probably won't happen).
• In FF15, all the button styles will have borders like they always did, except of course the default buttons.
• We finally utilised some attributes that have been available in recent FF versions that allow split menu buttons (like the Greasemonkey button) to function as you would expect. Instead of the entire button being highlighted when you hover over the dropmarker, only the dropmarker section is.
• Tabs on bottom code will be REMOVED, as Mozilla is discontinuing tabs on bottom. We will not be adding it back unless we go crazy and manually add the feature back ourselves (way t

: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?
DA is a commercial page, and that's okay.But it shouldn't have so much "commercial" users.
I don't mean the users who start a donation pool to upgrade their groups.This is something that
my 2 cents on name changeits an awesome option, so thank you DA for thatmy 2 cents on name change2 years ago in Personal More Like This
however, if you have created a reputation on your on-going name, and this is particular important for those of you who are looking forward to create a bigger fan-base, think carefully before you change your name.
i dont speak for everyone, but i know that when i look at comments, my order of reading is this, their icon and then their name
theres been a couple of times that i failed to recognize a friend's comment because they changed their icon, so even the icon is a big deal if you are trying to make a name for yourself, its really like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
now if you change both your name and icon, its a pretty damn risky thing. I know DA sends your watcher a notice about name change, but you also have to know that there are lazy bastards like me who would fail to see those things when i'm distracted.
if you have created a name on the internet as, for example:"emerald-dragon" on DA, and people from
How correctly install GDIPPHi, i receive a lot of messages by people who want install GDIPP( cause GDI++ is crappy!!), so here is the good way:How correctly install GDIPP3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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.
Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking FlightThe vibrant digital paintings of `alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable. The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking Flight2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
