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
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

Sta.shHi again, beta crew.Sta.sh3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As mentioned recently, we’re making a bunch of changes to the new Stash...
If you're new to Stash, find out more about it here: http://devbug.deviantart.com/journal/Stash-215498179
The latest changes: Sta.sh is now a separate section of the deviantART Network - with its own header, and its own look.
Here's a sneak peek!
"Stash" no longer exists on your Submit menu, but instead can be gotten to one of two ways:
You can pick "Sta.sh" from your main profile menu.. next to Logout and Settings
Or, you can type http://sta.sh into your address bar
Note: to switch back to deviantART, pick the "deviantART" item from the Sta.sh main menu.

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

I Don't Even Know What to Say About ThisI was just linked to Wolf Haven Spirit of the Past, a site that sells "house raised, quality wolves" in the state of Texas (where, if I am not mistaken, they are illegal to own). If you thought my last blog was amusing check out some of these quotes, direct from their page:I Don't Even Know What to Say About This5 years ago in Personal More Like This
The wolf is the lion of the North. They are called that because they are descendants from the same lineage as lions.
They also have a cat-like bone structure. They can collapse and dislocate their joints.
A full wolf will not have green or blue eyes, but like the lion only brown.
When you hear of a wolf being agressive, it is more than likely mixed with a dog. When you mix a wolf with a dog you pass on the agressive traits, brain imbalance and the health problems of a dogs.
They make good pets for even truck drivers!

1. No sex. At all. To be safe, no masturbation either, and do not get naked. You do not want to get killed when you are naked.
2. No drugs or alcohol.
3. Never go out to investigate strange noises.
4. Never split up when you are in a large group.
5. Never say, "I'll be right back," because you won't.
6. Never watch a horror movie
7. Remember that dark alley
