If you are society's bitch, this is very likely what your "happy" life blue print will look like. Almost everyone does this, and it's not a coincidence: people do as they are told. Told by the movies, by their friends and family, books, tradition, religion, even government subsidies, and the education system, conditioned into obedience. So they, what are the odds that this is indeed everyone's dream rather than something imposed on them covertly externally, as I believe to be the case?
But just today, I've freed you from the bullshit The blueprint above is not available to you, so you have to ACTUALLY pick what you'd lik
Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new featuresAt the very end of 2012, the code of the famous free and open-source digital-painting program Mypaint 1.1 was released. If you still using Mypaint 1.0 , you might be interested to see what happened into this one year of change. For reading an excellent review about it , please read the very cool and full article wrote by Alexandre Prokoudine on Libre Graphic World , he also made a cool video.Mypaint 1.1 : A guide through the new features2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Now Mypaint is a bit more talkative when you press '+' or '-' on the keyboard to zoom with the 'Control+Space' shortcut. It was difficult back to Mypaint 1.0 days to have an idea of the actual zoom level. For the future development , this box system was made to be reusable ; so Mypaint might have better and better visual feedbacks on the next versions.The notifications are activated by defaults , and concern for the moment only

my 2 cents on name changeits an awesome option, so thank you DA for thatmy 2 cents on name change3 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

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 & Github3 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

Beta Launch: Film, deviantART muro in Sta.shHello everyone!Beta Launch: Film, deviantART muro in Sta.sh2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Today we're bringing you some major changes for Film & Animation deviations, and also some new tools for deviantART muro and Sta.sh Writer!
Film submission through Sta.sh
The first major change for Film is that Sta.sh is now properly equipped to support film submissions! While it was sort of possible in the past, Sta.sh can now store and submit film files the same way other filetypes can be stored and submitted.
Keep in mind that you have to have film submission privileges in order to submit films to deviantART. For more information on this, please read this FAQ: :faq842:
Film Deviation Page Changes
The second change is regarding the layout of film deviations. The old film layout was designed with an older version of deviantART in mind, and this change places Film submissions back up to speed with the rest of the site. The Film deviation page has been updated to

First of all, I hope you all had a splendid week. There were some exciting new changes on dA this week. The one that most of you should be already aware of are username changes. The deviantART community as a whole seem to be split on whether it's beneficial to the community. I'd really love to hear what you think about it all.
Another major thing is our dA Related CV, namenotrequired has taken over another g

[Featured Skin] Rainsweeper[Featured Skin] Rainsweeper2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Rainsweeper by Kaelri is another leap in making Rainmeter do things that no one ever thought possible. Through the use of a clever Lua script Rainsweeper is a clone of the classic Minesweeper game. The ingenious design allows for many features including a GUI options editor, saved high scores, and it has no images or other resource files making it light as it can be.
Thanks for the hard work on another amazing skin!

dA in 10 years?I recently read a forum thread found here: http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/131114/ about where everyone thought deviantART would be in 10 years. Many people said we'd have sold out to MSN or AOL. Others said we'd be limiting uploads for non-subscribers and cutting off access to services.dA in 10 years?11 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's two ways to take this I suppose: Either it's a general feeling that this thing is too good to be true in its current form. Or somehow it's expected that a service growing so quickly would somehow be forced to sell out.
Neither is true. This was my response:
I think deviantART will be looked upon as a revolution unto itself. Having been able to scale not only it's infrastructure but it's community and spawned sub-communities (within the garden of deviantART) to include the various arts of hundreds of millions of artists worldwide.
And as the ultimate complement, it will be taken completely for granted. A service fully integrated in to daily li

We Give a F*** How the Site LoadsDevelopers can be angry people sometimes. This is actually quite the understatement and dt is no exception to that assessment. With web development in particular, there are several moments during the day where we are astounded, perplexed, and irritated by why something works the way it does--often over things beyond our control like lack of uniform web standards.
