You've had the idea, you've built your emotes, you've put them all together in an animated GIF which you upload for the world to enjoy. The comments start coming in; "Sweet", "Cute", Love it", "Why is it so slow?". All well and good, apart from that last one.
So you take a closer look and either:
a) you scratch your head and think "it wasn't that slow when I built it"
b) you think it looks fine but other people are still saying it's slow
So what's the problem? The answer is Stupid Browsers. Simple as that. Our browsers are just rubbish at rendering fast animated GIFs.
An animated GIF file consists of a number of image blocks, each with it's own control block.&

The Lonely PathFebruary 13, 2013/by techgnoticThe Lonely Path1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

As a bit of background, I love electronics, and this is what I currently spend my time with on a daily basis (in varying percentage):
-Kindle (I can't read ebooks on a backlit screen)
Those are the core pieces of electronics I use, typically in conjunction with one another, but, even today, I can't find a fit for the iPad.
At first I thought it would be great to just lounge around and use it to read some websites on the couch, but my MacBook Air basically fixes that issue. As a test of this, I had a Motorola Xoom and an iPad 2 I used for over a month to see if I could really find a genuine feel for why I might find some practical use out of tablet devices, and came away empty handed.
So, I come to you, the deviantART community, to give me some ideas and insight as to what you use your

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

Ramadan KareemAs-Salamu Alaikum, dear brothers and sisters we will try to give our best about describing the month is comming and that is Ramadan, the month of Fasting, the holy month of all Muslims in the world, the month of cleaning soul, the month of fasting, the month when the Holy Qur'an was sent down to the lowest heaven during this month by Gibril (Gabriel) to the Prophet Muhammed.Ramadan Kareem2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Practical Tips in Preparation for Ramadan
Allah Almighty says:
Ramadhan is the (month) in which was sent down the Qur'an, as a guide to mankind, also clear (Signs) for guidance and judgment (Between right and wrong). So every one of you who is present (at his home) during that month should spend it in fasting, but if any one is ill, or on a journey, the prescribed period (Should be made up) by days later. Allah intends every facility for you; He does not want to put to difficulties. (He wants you) to complete the prescribed period, and to glorify Him in that He has guided you; and perchance ye shal

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh
Randomman has been unbannedPhew! Well, THAT was hard work.Randomman has been unbanned2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So yeah, as you might recall, I said that Randomman was banned for "hacking" a Minecraft client.
Now don't ask me what that means, I haven't the faintest idea what that involves.
So usually, to ask to be unbanned, you have to appeal on the Orcworm forum, and they say if you are unbanned or not.
In this case, Random couldn't appeal because he didn't have an account on it, so I had to argue his case for him.
I decided to write it in the "complaints" section of the forums, because I was complaining about the ban.
so I wrote the complaint/appeal out for him, at the end of which I asked what proof they had that he hacked.
And the day after, they said that they DID have proof, but they lost it when they reformatted, whatever that is, their computer.
they also had a timeframe where they had to post the evidence within 24 hours, and it seemed they didn't manage this so they unbanned Random.
