MASSIVE ART THEFT NOW ON http://markyourspot.com
Someone sent me a note on DA saying Markyourspot is selling art stuff without permission and at a huge price.
They're selling some of my stuff without my permission. http://www.markyourspot.com/social_capital/mating_game/productdetail.asp?productid=3508 and
http://www.markyourspot.com/social_capital/mating_game/productdetail.asp?productid=3701
I am trying to spread the word about this massive theft case just as someone did with www.art4love.com. Fortunately that site has already been shut down. So I hope something similar can be done with markyourspot.
Please please check to see if anything of yours has been taken, and file a DMCA with the site’s host.
I'm not the only one on DA which has been stolen. In fact, lots of artists have been affected by this.
Please fav this article so that it can spread fast!

Do's and Don'ts of Time Travel
So, you've finally done it. You've scraped together the millions of dollars, dozens of passports, countless vaccinations and hours and hours of anachronistic language classes. The day is at long last here, and you are ready to take that romantic little vacation – through time. Yes, time travel is everything you've been told. You will meet exotic people, doing exotic things in exotic eras. You will get to see the "Good Old Days" when they were better known as "These Wretched Times." But, before you hit the app button on your genius phone, there are a few things you should know:
Time Travel Don'ts
Don't shoot your grandfather. It's tempting isn't it? You've read about people who've done it on countless blogs and seen the very realistic, yet highly grainy videos, on YouTube. Shooting your biological grandfather isn't just against the law, both criminal and temporal, it is considered unacceptable behavior in just about all cultures. For now, let's put as

Personal Quote: "If nothing we do matters, then all that matters is what we do."
It's been one week since the release of Enigma v4, and I wanted to take stock of our numbers, for those who are interested in such egotistical things.

By the end of today, about 7,000 users will have downloaded version 4 from deviantArt. Another 1,700 from the mirror on Customize.org. But the overwhelming majority will have come directly from the source repository on GitHub: 22,000.

This was a really stunning revelation to me. I have always assumed that deviantArt accounted for the bulk of our user base. The numbers, however, suggest that a good many of you are getting Enigma through either the official website, or through Rainmeter.net, where we are privileged to have Enigma listed as a "featured" suite.

I consider both of these to be good news, and I hope that it will lead more Rainmeter users to GitHib. I honestly didn't know what GitHub was all about until Smurfier roped me into moving the Enigma source code there. But in the two months since then, I have been thoroughly impressed by both its ease of use and by the powerful project management tools that it has to offer. A Rainmeter suite may not be anything like, say, Linux in terms of size and complexity. But it's been a pleasant surprise to discover that the same tools are not only relevant, but also accessible for a project in our class. If you're interested in sharing your Rainmeter code and concepts with others, or collaborating on a big skin project, I really encourage you to give GitHub a try.

Circling back to the numbers: Enigma 3.1 had about 170,000 downloads from deviantArt in the year since its release. Unfortunately, I had no way of tracking downloads from my domain before switching to GitHub. But since I've done little to no new advertising since 3.1, we can assume that the proportions were similar, which means that the total propagation of 3.1 was probably in the neighborhood of 770,000. I don't think there's any way to end this post without thanking everyone who's given their support to this project, and hope this wind stays at our backs. :)

Is there anyway you can make your Enigma Notes meter  standalone?  I love the Notes meter itself (With options of multiple tabs/pages).  However I would like to be able to recolor / reshade the background hover.  With all the calls back to other scripts in the Note.ini file its very confusing to edit this. 

Please make it stand alone! It is a wonderful note tool!
