i needed to redesign the blamco we have all seen at instructables (or ripped off by those papercraft dousches who stole other peoples work) Because it was not entirely acceptable in my opinon. while it works for the casual collector, this one works for even a discerning eye. Seriously, go to the vault wiki and look up blamco this is scary accurate...
Commodore John Paul Jones wearing the blue and white Continental Navy uniform that he designed in 1777. This particular uniform was favored by officers as it had gold trim and epaulets while the blue and red garb ordered by Congress in 1775 didn't (though Jones added gold braid and epaulets to his blue and red uniform anyway). A group of officers and Jones presented this idea to Congress in 1777 and it was politely struck down, blamed for too closely resembling Royal Navy uniforms and giving a too powerful appearance to naval officers. Shortly after the uniform's refusal, Jones and the other officers had sets personally made and wore them out of sight at sea... though they opted to omit the gold trim just in case they were seen wearing them (Jones however, the usual mavrick, made his as dashing and fancy as possible, even wearing an unauthorized red sash.)
It is believed that Jones was wearing this particular uniform when the Bonhomme Richard engaged the HMS Serphis at The Battle of Flambrough Head on September 23rd, 1779.
At long last, an art trade between and I has been fulfilled! We struck the deal in July, 2009 and he quickly responded with excellent work. Alas, I was off to the Virginia Military Institute for a summer class and then the start of the Fall semester. It has been a very trying and exciting journey as a Rat (Freshman) at VMI, a journey that has allowed me no time to sit down and draw. I've been home for the past three weeks for Christmas furlough, and today, January 10, 2010, is the last day - I leave tomorrow! However, I will not return to The Institute without first upholding my end of the deal... I give you, , my half of our art trade that has survived the test of time!
I used pen and ink to draw the ship's lines. For the antiqued version, I applied an old paper transparency layer (stock image provided by ) over the original lineart. For the colored version, I applied transparency to the lineart layer, added a white layer beneath it, and colored it via your standard digital painting tools. The program used to digitally enhance this piece is The Gimp 2.2
USS Constitution is a wooden-hulled, three-masted heavy frigate of the United States Navy. Named by President George Washington after the Constitution of the United States of America, she is the oldest commissioned naval vessel afloat in the world. Launched in 1797, Constitution was one of the six original frigates authorized for construction by the Naval Act of 1794. Joshua Humphreys designed these frigates to be the young Navy's capital ships, and so Constitution and her sisters were larger and more heavily armed and built than the standard frigates of the period. Built in Boston, Massachusetts at Edmund Hartt's shipyard, her first duties with the newly formed United States Navy were to provide protection for American merchant shipping during the Quasi War with France and to defeat the Barbary pirates in the First Barbary War.
Constitution is most famous for her actions during the War of 1812 against Great Britain, when she captured numerous merchant ships and defeated five British warships: HMS Guerriere, Java, Pictou, Cyane and Levant. The battle with Guerriere earned her the nickname of "Old Ironsides" and public adoration that has repeatedly saved her from scrapping. She continued to actively serve the nation as flagship in the Mediterranean and African squadrons and circled the world in the 1840s. During the American Civil War she served as a training ship for the United States Naval Academy and carried artwork and industrial displays to the Paris Exposition of 1878. Retired from active service in 1881, she served as a receiving ship until designated a museum ship in 1907. In 1931 she started a three year 90-port tour of the nation and in 1997 she finally sailed again under her own power for her 200th birthday.
Constitution's mission today is to promote understanding of the Navys role in war and peace through educational outreach, historic demonstration, and active participation in public events. As a fully commissioned US Navy ship, her crew of 60 officers and sailors participate in ceremonies, educational programs and special events while keeping the ship open to visitors year-round and providing free tours. The officers and crew are all active-duty US Navy personnel and the assignment is considered special duty in the Navy. Traditionally, command of the vessel is assigned to a Navy Commander.

UPDATE 2: ...and a bug with the JC2 banner. Fuck me. lol
I'm a guy who loves to display my games and so forth, but with the advent of digital gaming and distribution, I don't have boxes laying around that I can display. For some time I've been looking for something that allows me to display my games on my desktop in a way reminiscent of boxes on a shelf... or say, like the DDR interface, but never found anything satisfactory. So, I improvised and did it myself.
GameBanners is a collection of simple Rainmeter buttons created in Rainpad. The banners themselves are a combination of resources found around the internet put together in Photoshop.
This was created for personal use, so I don't intend to supply a lot of support. Nonetheness, if you need any help feel free to ask here and I'll see what I can do.
Steam games in this list are set up as Steam links. Non-steam games like Guild Wars 2 link to their respective folder paths. If you would like to link to a non-Steam game through Steam, follow these instructions:
1. In your steam library, right click the game and click "Create Desktop Shortcut." 2. On the desktop, find the shortcut. Right click it and select "Properties." 3. Under "URL," copy the entire line starting with "steam://" and ending in a series of numbers, which is the game's ID. 4. Right click the GameBanner you wish to change, and find the following line: LeftMouseUpAction = !Execute ["URL HERE"] 5. Replace the "URL HERE" text with the URL you copied from the game shortcut's properties window between the quotes. Save, and exit Notepad. 6. Right click the Rainmeter skin, and click "Refresh skin." 7. You're done! You're also free to delete the desktop shortcut you created, if you'd like.
