The Social Currency of OpinionSocial networks, of which I count deviantART to be one for the sake of this journal, basically operate on personal opinion.The Social Currency of Opinion4 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the case of deviantART, opinion is most easily conveyed by the use of clicking on the giant, green +Favourites button on any given page of content. Recently we expanded +Favourites out to affect things like Journals, and this has been a sensible and positive change, although it met with a bit of criticism from some at first. In the case of Twitter, opinion is shared at its simplest level through Retweeting something, thereby letting all of your Followers know about what somebody said (somebody you likely agree with in a particular instance). In the case of Facebook, opinion is quickly shared by the famous Like button.
In all of these cases, users are presented the ability to quickly let their opinions be known, in some manner, without having to actually say anything in particular. The function says for itself "I approve of this," and while generally w

How about your LMS books. In the short of it, we ran into a huge hold up with a publisher, but now everything is A-OK and back on track.
LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter will be coming out this spring/summer. No exact date yet, but let's get to the basics:
1. Everyone and anyone who ordered and book last year through our pre-orders: You guys are still guaranteed your copies. If you never got a response to your email, rest assured, all will be looked at and taken care of. And if still nothing comes, then you can personally message me on here once the books are in.

I've been asked to write a tutorial on skinning foobar2000, because many f2k users encounter difficulties modifying skins or simply using them. I'm not an expert on the subject, I've started by installing a few skins and trying to understand how that worked ; I still think it's the best way to get a good handle on it, though a long and sometimes frustrating way. I invite you to try and see by yourself, to keep in mind that errors come all along and to share any advice, question, difficulty or anything you want to say, may you be new or expert. I also recommend to read this good tutorial (though it's partly based on outdated PanelsUI), maybe this less developed one, some of the very useful Hydr

Creating Panel Switchers
A lot of awesome foobar2000 skins here in DA will let you switch between multiple panels. It means you can put many panels in the same place, on top of each other, and then assign a set of buttons to trigger which panel should be shown, whilst the rest of it remains hidden.

Why we fall. - Edited with full postWhy we fall. - Edited with full post6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Art by Allison Smith.
"Why do we fall, Bruce? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up."
One of my favorite lines from Batman Begins. However, there are moments where it's rather difficult to get back up, and sometimes we require that one special kick in the ass.
From each tumble, we learn a valuable lesson. A year or so ago, I had hit a personal wall that was proving too difficult to force through. Art, which is usually front and center, took a back sea--and while we've all had art blocks--that wasn't the only issue.
It began with my roommate of two years, whom had decided it was time to move else where. With such a sudden interruption, I had to find a new home and in less than 30 days.
Having also been through a bleak breakup months prior, and finding myself with no pending freelance work and
