Photo Editing in LinuxFor anyone interested, Ive done considerable amounts of experimentation with building photographic workflows on Linux.Photo Editing in Linux1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After trying just about every base system, window manager, and editing tool in the open source world, Ive come up with something that I personally really like, is really stable, and the tools all work well together.
So if you have wondered at all what works and what doesnt in a production capacity, I wont tell you what you "should" use, Ill just tell you what works for me.
Base system: Debian stable. Yeah I know, Ubuntu has better repos, Arch has newer packages, etc etc. I have built all of these and used them and I have had the fewest interoperability issues with Debian. It runs like a rock. Ubuntu runs hot, and uses ALOT more memory at idle than almost any other system Ive tested. The memory spikes when launching and using multiple photo apps can cause editors to freeze up. Mageia Linux is pretty nice, but there are still some issues. and I tend to think apt-get is a

1st up is the revival of the unchanged "Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act" (or CISPA for short)
CISPA is a bill simpler to SOPA that give the government the right to take your private information from any site on the internet and if after receiving this information they find anything they don't like they can convict for it. As for the people who handed over you're private information? Well because they handed it over they are immune to any possible legal issues that may pop up, for a more thorough explanation of CISPA see: http://youtu.be/UERicIJ2J5U (in short wile it PROBABLY won't cos your favourite site to
Yin's Tradelocke RulesetThis is a nuzlocke rule system I came up with awhile back, but never bothered to write down. It's basically a variation of the popular dual-locke with more emphasis on collaborative play.Yin's Tradelocke Ruleset1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Okay! First step, find a friend who loves Pokemon and nuzlockes as much as you do.
Got one? Good! Moving on~
You and your friend will need:
A Nintendo handheld system
Compatible Pokemon games (e.g. Platinum & SoulSilver, Black 2 & White, etc.)
A method of trading (link cable, IR, wi-fi, etc.)
Standard nuzlocke rules apply:
Catch only the first pokemon on each route, cave, ocean, etc.
If a pokemon faints, it's dead.
As far as additional rules go, it doesn't matter what you use as long as you and your partner use the same ones.
Now, onto the tradelocke rules:
After every 2 badges, the trainers must pick 3 pokemon to battle each other.
Winner gets to pick one of the opponent's 3 p

BIXEL : Upcoming Icon SetBIXEL : Upcoming Icon Set2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Big, retro, pixel style icon set. I wait and wait for many years, but no one made it happened yet. I mean, there are some - about 10 icons or so...., but not a whole set, that's for sure.
and don't even mention that the icon design 'trend' right now goes to Hi-resolution, and even higher. My hope is null.
I used to heard someone said that 'if you want something, don't wait for other, make it happened yourself'
My experiences in pixel art is very limit, but I don't want to wait anymore. I will make it happened with my own strength.
This will be long-term iconset, so that means I will update it regularly, to include many icon as much as possible.

Great Christian Thinkers: Ten Quotes About Christian Apologetics:
• Apologetics is not simply about reaching outside the church and helping people realize why Christianity makes so much sense. There are many people inside church congregations who are wrestling with apologetic questions; who come to faith but haven’t ...had all of their questions answered. I think the pastor, the preacher, needs to realize if they want their people to be good and minister to the faith, apologists and evangelists, they’ve got to be equipped. They’ve got to be reassured about their faith. They’ve got to be helped to be able to explain it and defend it in the secular marketplace. Now maybe many pastors and preachers say, ‘You know, I couldn’t do this.’ In which case, you need to bring somebody in who can. But there’s a real need for the local church to see this kind

Lumi, a first previewHey ! :]Lumi, a first preview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've made some new changes on Lumi, my future Visual Style for Windows 7. It will continue to change in some details, and it's certainly not over yet, different parts are still the one from Soft7.
Anyway here's the actual result :
White isn't it ? ^^
My main ideas were :
more "minimal", less transparent, and add a tiny color.
The window on top left is active, the others are inactive (mainly a difference in the shadow, but the windows themselves are a bit more transparent).
The "Yes" button is hovered, like the Music icons. The DVD drive is selected
I believe the caption buttons are too subtle right now, and I'm still trying to do a nice hover effect, subtle but visible.
It includes the new icons on the Navigation Pane, obviously based on the icons in Mac OS Lion, entirely made from scratch (all of them) with the subtle blue of the theme.
By the way, don't get it wrong, I hardly have time to play all t

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?

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

En una noche...una noche como cualquiera, al fin, pude descubrir algo que crei que no existia...
la fe...el amor verdadero y la fuerza...del espiritu.
la fuerza que uno dice tener, pero de la que carece... un espiritu debil, que sigue porque asi lo dice una testaruda mente o la misma vida.
Hoy, cualquiera me llamara loco o tarado o dira cosas contra mi, pero... tuve una revelacion personal...
La fe y el amor que profesa la biblia, las religiones, no viene de ningun lugar superior ni de ningun ser omniciente...
Ese amor, la fe, la fuerza que fortalece el espiritu, viene de algo muy fisico y que no esta fuera de tu alcanze, sino que junto a ti...

The Tales of Beatrix PotterThe Tales of Beatrix Potter2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Cold winter evenings or blustery Autumn days had the soundtrack of my Mother's voice reading Beatrix Potter books out loud when I was younger. In fact, the wonderful children's books were the epitome of my childhood. The illustrations were just perfect and the stories, whilst simple, were mysterious and adventurous in their own way. Beatrix Potter was born in 1866, South Kensington, London. She was said to live a lonely life, being educated at home by a governess and so perhaps that's why she delved into a fantasy world of rabbits, geese and other traditional animals.
Beatrix's illustrations come from her copious studies of her own pets, and the animals that roamed the gardens of the places in which she holidayed as a child. The fascinating fact was that Beatrix's illustrations became greetings cards before her books were created. I see her drawings on cards in shops now and I always thought that it had developed the other way around. Her first boo

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

a protester is throwing back a tear gas grenade at the front line barricade of yesterday's clashes in gümüşsuyu. the amount of gas you're exposed to while doing this is very dangerous, even with a gas mask.
in the face of what happens every day, the word protest appears euphemistic. what you are seeing here is not a demonstration but a crowd defending taksim, so that people can demonstrate and 'occupy' there. yesterday saw a lot of police provocation in order to lure protesters out of the greater taksim area and arrest them, but some strong voices were able to hold back most of the less strategically minded who wanted to throw stones at the water cannons waiting beyond the barricades (a rather futile excercise).
