I'll clarify some of my feelings about this general sort of thing.

I am actually quite concerned about distributing software on the internet. Moreso than some, I feel. 
I understand the facts speak for themselves; that I am just some guy on the internet and, despite the promising comments and figures regarding usage of my things, for a user there's just no way of knowing what goes into them and whether they're safe to use or not. Some people have even had antiviruses provide (what I assume are) false positives on my software and told me this. 

For this reason, despite the fact that a part of me would have liked to keep my software closed source, I have thus-far studiously posted source code for every piece of software I've released on DeviantArt. I'm not overly concerned about IP re-use, but the niggling feeling of vulnerability always remains.
I also acknowledge the fact that openly available source code alone doesn't mean that prebuilt executables are any safer, nor would MD5 hashes, etc, when the issue at hand is determining whether the software itself is compromised but it's a start, and the people who are suitably equipped and suitably informed may compile these things for themselves if they are determined to do so, and I would help them through it if they asked me to.

I have a huge interest in several areas of art.
I love traditional art; leather bound books, steam age stylings and and ornate craftsmanship.
I also like modern designs.
Finally, I do appreciate photography, especially careful photography, such as nicolasmalinowski.deviantart.c… , where you don't know quite how the artist pulled it off, but it is nonetheless amazing, usable as a wallpaper and generally nonoffensive.

I am also highly opinionated on certain issues but generally am content to let things go as they do when the event in question is anything less than a passion of mine.

I am a university student who has leanings to electro/house in music, and used to work in a pet store.

Finally, I prefer to separate my real identity from my virtual presence. That's a purely personal view, but I think a healthy one.

Current Residence: Perth, Western Australia
Print preference: Awesome Ones :)
Favourite genre of music: Disco
Favourite style of art: Modern, Minimalist
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: HTC Sensation
Shell of choice: Windows
Wallpaper of choice: Changes often with mood.
Skin of choice: Changes often with mood.
Personal Quote: Any film depicting God as someone other than Morgan Freeman is contradicting my religious beliefs.

What program do you use to makes skins, and such?

I do my image editing in Real World Paint. It's like Photoshop mixed with MSPaint, and pretty good for all talent levels IMO. And free.

I make Windows Media Player skins in Notepad++ by hand; it's not that difficult, just a little tedious. 
I made Chrome skins with a tool, but that's now been replaced by a DIY website that isn't as good. I believe it might be this: www.themebeta.com/chrome-theme…

Greetings! Thought it might be lovely to visit!

Nothing important to talk about, just want you to know that I enjoy the programs you made. They are super neat!

Love your programs, man. It's hella rad.

That's all I have to say for myself at the moment. Good day to you, sir. Thank you for your time! :iconbowingplz:

Hi there SomeRandomPerson,

I'm glad you like them. They're fun to make (although I haven't had much time lately due to other commitments), and it's always nice to be able to please people by doing work you enjoy.

Thanks for dropping by!
