This Just in from CNN Holiday Challenge Wrap-up
Halloween–Valentines Mash–up Results to be Revealed.
The U.S. Government would like to thank all the deviants and deviant–adjacents who participated in the “great imagining” of what might be the windfalls and downfalls of this merging of holidays and assure them this was not just another thinly veiled McGuffin to distract the citizenry from the looming disaster on the immediate horizon. Here are your submissions!
Remember… when America has a crisis, you can depend on your Government to find the necessary spotlight challenge to address the situation. And you are certainly welcome!

Objective-C deviantART SDKWe're happy to announce the release of version 1.0 of the Objective-C deviantART SDK. This SDK is a simple way to build great experiences using the deviantART API in your Mac or iOS apps.Objective-C deviantART SDK11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The SDK requires iOS7 or OS X 10.9 and provides several classes for you to use and interact with:
DVNTAPIClient - The core of the SDK. This class provides the OAuth2 management along with core network calls.
DVNTAPIRequest - Provides simple wrapper methods around all API deviantART endpoints. If you find any that are missing, feel free to open a pull request to add them.
For the fastest integration, we recommend you use CocoaPods to install the SDK within your project, then simply import DVNTAPI.h with your codebase. DVNTAPI.h imports all the required headers for the SDK to function.

Programming...My girlfriend loves sun-bathing.Programming...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
She's on a vacation now, and every other day she wakes up before me and goes on our terrace/balcony, trying to get that perfect bronze tan.
I work late, so she usually lets me sleep an hour or two longer. Today was not that day.
- "Hey love, there's a puddle of water on the balcony. It seems that AC is leaking."
New quest available: Fix the leaking AC.
Identifying the problem.
For those of you not familiar with this type of air conditioner, it's a 4x3x1' box, hanging about 7 feet above the floor, with a hose going from it to the roof drain to remove excess condensate. I went to the terrace, looked at the puddle of water, briefly inspected the AC box, and saw that the hose fitting on the box was a bit lose and that it was probably the cause for the leakage. I've decided that it's not a huge issue, and that it can be fixed with some duct tape.
On to get some duct tape.
I know I had some. Somewhere.
Here? Nope, not here.

Autodesk has over 30 years of history in helping designers create amazing things. You may know Autodesk for apps like SketchBook and Pixlr for drawing, illustration, and image editing, or for software like 3ds Max and Maya, which are used by the top film and game studios around the world to create fantastically realistic 3D characters, environments, and effects. Amazing fact: the last 17 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects use Autodesk software. Autodesk is also known for engineering software like AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit, which has been used to design some of the world’s tallest buildings, longest bridges, and most incredible machines.

At the beginning of August I found myself at a hospital, diagnosed with gallstones. The only effective way of getting rid of them is to remove the whole gallbladder altogether. Unfortunately it quickly got much worse. I got a severe case of cholecystitis and developed a hydrocele. It was suspected that the inflammation started to spread to my peritoneum and liver. Even more unfortunately it didn't stop there. During all the medical examination I went through during the next few weeks it was discovered that everything was in fact caused by gallbladder cancer, which before was wrongly identified as inflamed tissue.
You can probably imagine how devastated I was after getting the news - after weeks of pain I got to know that I had cancer with extremely poor prognosis and had absolutely no money for a surgery.

But Is It Art?
Perhaps the eternally unanswerable question. But definitely something to chew on... When I first saw it, I was instantly captivated.
At first thought, what a brilliant example of modern pointillism! Has some unknown artist taken up the long abandoned banner of Georges Seurat and presented us with a new manifesto championing art as points of light illuminating our waking dreams?!

My deviantART StoryMy deviantART Story5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
In late 2011, I was looking for a job and being really picky about it.
I wanted to be passionate about the product I was building.
I wanted the users of the product to be passionate about it.
I wanted my employers to be passionate about the product for reasons other than its ability to generate revenue.When I saw that deviantART was hiring developers, this is what I felt like:
deviantART was an amazing product that I could get really passionate about!
It had millions of great users who actively tried to make the site better.
So I submitted my resume..
The hiring process dragged on.. and on.. for 3 months.
Finally, in January 2012, mccann called to offer me the position.
My brain exploded into a bloodbath of rainbows and bunnies:
The first few months were challenging.

We all know it. Making something and then showing it out there makes you very vulnerable, emotionally.
What if people think it's shit? What if they think it's weird... what will they think? Will that reflect on how they think of me as a person?
I know what some of you are thinking right now... 'You should care less about what people think of you or you art.'
In a sense you are right.. than again, you SHOULD care what people think of you and your art! They are your market and potential clients.
It's easier when you're already doing your dream job and couldn't care less for other potential directions... but most of us will always stay interested in new opportunities.

Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".
The spam can attack didn't end there, Pilot's job for today was hiding behind building ruins and throwing the spam cans at me at random intervals with yells of "INCREASE YOUR GENITAL SIZE!", "RUSSIAN BRIDE LOVES YOU" and "I AM NIGERIAN PRINCE WITH 56 BILL
