Gather 'round, n00bs and old farts!
Let me paint you a picture of devious struggles and highlights of days long gone.

First off, browsing art back in *my* day, we had to scroll uphill, both ways. Even in winter. Without friction smoothing mouse gloves. The mousewheel was barely out of the prototype stages.

Often, shit didn't even load. Heck, in the beginning, thumbnails weren't even thumbnail sized - More like ring finger sized.
Endless scrolling was a concept yet untought of. 24 "thumbs" per page. I'm not sure if that used to a maximum and you could have even less. Today's river thumbs used be tiny puddles of pinkies. Back then you could browse via a text/link list. Can you imagine browsing image content today by just text - "TITLE by ARTIST, submitted on DATE" - Well damn, sounds intriguing, might be worth the bandwidth and loading time. I hope my browser won't crash while rendering the page. I'll just go take a dump in the meantime.

You couldn't even embed deviation thumbnails anywhere! In the old News system, when we could finally implement custom HTML code and thus images in news posts, art features became all the rage. It was a golden age. That was the inception for the idea of HTML/CSS customizable journals and later on entire profile pages. Art features by now are an integral part of DA. Many are here only to do just that. Imagine not being able to do that back then. And installable journal skins! Imagine posting your daily MLP fanart feature without a severely sub-optimal looking barely working journal skin. It was dark, thumbless times indeed.

There were periods of bandwidth drought. There were unexpected outages and somewhat expected maintenance outages. Luckily at some point someone invented read-only mode, which was such a tease. You could look, but not touch.
A few times the site was down for many hours, even DAYS, and we had to comfort each other in IRC chats. That was before we gave that new-fangled Skype thing a try. You don't know how game-changing it was to chat one on one and even in GROUPS with other staff on a desktop app. And... VOICE. CALLS. on the INTERNET. And before you even think it, ~xXxEmoAngel666xXx~, get the fuck out of here with AIM or MSN or Yahoo instant messenger garbage.

Customizeable skinnable modular profiles were a wet sci-fi dream. There were various shades of dark grimey gray-greens which nobody could ever agree on. Is it green, is it gray. It was both, and it was mind fuckers. But things literally got brighter with every site iteration.

Iterations? DA used to get a major design / functionality upgrade every year on its birthday. Or around its birthday, depending on how well the codemonkeys wrangled with the new beasts. We used to count major site versions until we ran out of fingers on our single hand to count further.

There's to be a really dope Today page. Now we have none at all? Or did they hide it? Anyway, the Today page used to have all things of the day on it, almost real-time new stuff as well as popular stuff, including neat stats that web companies nowadays guard as secrets on hidden away marketing dashboards. You could see how many submissions, comments, forum posts etc were made that day. How many new deviants joined. We used to have a mood system and that page showed the day's mood stats. And totals! Total deviant count, total of submissions, really anything important that could be counted. Amount of days DA has existed. It was all there.
I mean really, you could go to that one single page and see the living breathing active community happening almost all at once in front of your eyes.

DA's layout used to be optimized for glorious revolutionary 1024x768 imperial pixels of screen resolution. That's more than 10 times less than 4K resolution.

There were times when posting any sort of content was a gamble. Would the gods accept your submission or would it be lost the void for all of eternity? You had to be brave and patient. You even had to format your text manually with ancient hypertext markup language code tags.
Before the great test shortage, comment signatures could be up to 5 metric metres long and could weigh up to... wait, they didn't weigh anything. They just bogged down our 56K dial-up modulator–demodulators.

You kids are so spoiled today. Back then, in the pioneering times of popularizing digital art, artists used utterly shit computers to create their works. Masterpieces were done on machines that were worse than the cheapest modern smartphone. We had to illegally download RAM back then, and 3d acceleration PCI cards were the size of wood-paneled station wagons, just to get an extra 25Mhz and 16mb dedicated to graphics computation tasks.
Gosh darn, the third dimension was barely discovered.

Beyond the ancient stronghold rose the grim black wall of... wait, that's a different tale.

It was the Wild West. Copyright lawlessness ruled the day. Gangs of ruthless art rippers would simply steal images, make a tiny edit, and claim it as their very own original work of art. Well, that still happens, but The Law has taken hold.

I met my cutiebooty here.
I've made true friends here. Some have vanished, some have not, because they're in my basement.

DA relied on remote work before most people could even grasp the concept of working on the internet from home and get paid real money for it.  Every DA staffer used to be considered a "mod", because that's the only concept many people knew of someone working on the internet was forum moderators. CEO? Mod. Sysadmin? Mod. Steve from Accounting? Mod. Forum moderator? Mod. Crazy.
I mean, I was one of those not in the know. When I was asked if I wanna join the staff, I thought it would be some unpaid volunteer service fun. I was so wrong, and my soon to be owned golden Ferrari felt so right.

True characters used to work and rule this land. Some still do. I used to, too.
A yellow alien and a ninja are historically the most noteworthy. There are tales of a mysterious man whose legal name - I seriously shit you not - is Spot. Once, a scary clown was the mayor of D-Town. There was a frog-lady. Of course we had a cat lady. Everybody has a cat lady, but we had the very sweetest. A rare mystical Scottish minx also held this role. We still have Wonder Woman, because she's Wonder Woman. And the aforementioned ninja of course. Ninjas never fade. Many a scroll of code has been written by an eclectic Irishman who was known by many names. A pokemon to this day is at your service. A Serbian bit is ever-present in DA's code. Was there a purple vampire? You bet your sweet neck there was. If you haven't of the nomadic fartprincess, I pity you. A doll with a gun? You bet. A starving artist used to painstakingly hand craft each and every pixel on this website. His face is permanently blocky. We were briefly aided by Jeff Chokem, cousin of Duke Nukem. Troll And Son boosted ye olde Prints business into the 21st century. A very bearded Canadian used to do expert detective work on suspected and often uncovered fraudsters. My glob was he bearded. His beard preceded him. Also, beard.

Look, I wasn't here since day 1 so I'm forgetting many old-skool and pre-school legends here, and my memory is shit anyway, and I didn't like every single person either, so there.

But yeah, scrolling uphill both ways.

Get on my lawn, and then get off my damn lawn. Actually, mow my lawn, then get off of it for good.

TL;DR - Thank you DA for 15 very interesting years.

Ancient Scrolls of Artist Interviews

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 30, 2017, 2:37 PM










In a devious time long gone, I interviewed fourteen of my favorite artists.
They were done in the context of promoting super dope artists and their art prints, which they were offering through DA.
 
At the time I was still quite fresh working on the DA Prints Staff when there was an actual Prints department, doing quality control and promotions on the side.
El Capitan Mr. lllo0o0olll tasked me with this one fine day and I was quite reluctant throughout that period because Jesus Hitler Christ was I socially awkward back then.
But, I got to pick whomever I wanted, so every once in a while I asked artists who I was very fond of a bunch of way over-thought questions.
 
It started with my by now most eldest distant friend glittersniffer and at some point ended the series on a personal high note with grand-master SRaffa.
There were many a legend in between, make no mistake.

Why I haven't thought of compiling this list until now is beyond me.

It can also be argued that DNA is nothing more than a program designed to preserve itself. Life has become more complex in the overwhelming sea of information. And life, when organized into species, relies upon genes to be its memory system. So, man is an individual only because of his intangible memory... and memory cannot be defined, but it defines mankind.

A steaming butthole of thoughts

Sat Apr 15, 2017, 9:03 AM
A pointless vent rant about topics at hand



1) The web is raging at the United Airlines flight that violently forced an involuntary volunteer off the plane because fuck consumers. Nobody helped him. Obey. United Airlines isn't gonna suffer in a notable way from this because your cheap air travel is more important than internetedly "standing against what's wrong". But sure, people who film shit with their phones to go viral on the web are totally helping.

United AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHlines. by Jason1945



2) Everybody is irked by that silly Pepsi spot with Kendall Jenner as if it's utterly out of reach that Pepsi just went along with the great example the great Americans are making these days. Just give refreshing beverages to your overlords since you elected Hitler 2.0.17 as your leader. Self-reflection is beyond most people. It's an honest ad for once.

Stop making stupid people famous by QuilesART



3) Everybody who whines about violation of privacy in social media while posting every angle of their lives should walk off a cliff so they can whine at tectonic plate shift for that inconvenience.



4) The Ghost In The Shell movie is complete garbage. Scarlett Johannson's deadpan emotionless acting might befit her android role but it's at best sleep-inducing, which is nice when you suffer bad sleep patterns. It's bland junk food compared to the feast for thought that the original animes are. Some argue that notions of AI, interconnectedness of everything and mixed culture don't make the impact it made over 20 years ago, which is true when it's attempted to be done via a generic sci-fi action shit show.

Ghost In The Shell Portrait by Vimes-DA



5) The Kyocera FS-C2626MFP is the biggest piece of shit ever. My coworker jokes that if we tell "them" that, their Japanese engineers' will commit seppuku.

Seppuku by benedickbana



6) Almost everything can be blown up to be a social issue that supposedly affects everybody. Fuck that. Let's just be honest and live as dignified savages lest we face the extinction of our very human souls at the hand of self-imposed political correctness in every aspect of our corrupted lives.



SJW by Neetsfagging322297

7) We glorify people who appear insightful while being mostly quiet but maybe they're just fuckups who have enough self-awareness to suppress acting on their desperation to be normal. Being able to recognize yourself in others and others in you goes a long way but it might not make for a better life at all.



8) By now I don't really want to know what anyone believes religiously, spiritually or otherwise made-up-ly. I can never fully trust people who put a god above all else. Faiths that claim to be inclusive of the unfaithful are phony because how can anyone know if someone's not just going to fuck them over because their fantasy is more important than a living breathing fellow human. On the other hand, how am I supposed to take someone's faith to scripture seriously if they selectively abandon it, albeit for the benefit of other people? If you're a good person I don't care why that is. If you act like a scumbag in the name of faith, I hope Saint Lucifer welcomes you with open arms at the gates of your heaven.

Religion by Fealasy



9) I hope the liar Donald Trump obliterates everything that the USA pretends to be about so there is no other recourse than to do things right when he's made his fecal mark on people who'll eat shit as long as they can perceive a shimmer of gold in the great turd.


F*ck Trump (JG275) by jesseboy000



Future First World Problems

Sun Mar 26, 2017, 3:47 AM

1) Reaching your rebirth limit and having only that one life left to live. You got 250 years. Make them count.



2) Someone punched your third eye and you can't see beyond the veil of reality for a week. A week is 17 days measured by today's standards because the sun is going supernova and pushing its satellites away.



3) You're constipated because the ultramarket around the corner had a batch of malfunctioning nanobot diet supplement on sale the other day.



4) Dying from suffocation in outer space because you drunkenly stumbled off the edge of the planet. Earth is actually flat now thanks to a terra-forming project to streamline our home rock. It's also a perfect square now.



5) Getting to work late by 3.5 lifetimes because one of your 700 siblings pranked you with hypersleep pod malware. You snitch on sibling#274 and tell dad#23 and mom#91 it stole golden tears of the sun from their wallets to book a trip to Earth 9 in the alterverse. No telehallucinations for Shteeve for 1000 years!



6) You get suck in 1358 because the sun in that time is too far away to power your eco friendly time machine. You make use of your VR history class simulation lessons and found the Republic of Dubrovnik because what else are you gonna do.



7) You fall asleep at your worksation, hit your head on the control panel and accidentally reset the universe to factory settings and plead with your workerbot union to pay for a big bang to mend things with the Architect.

8) You're an artist and hit an art block because your brain has difficulties adapting to your brand new retinal implants that makes a greater spectrum of light visible for more colors that you literally couldn't imagine. Vanta Black isn't the blackest black anymore. Your motor skills have also gone to shit because you haven't had a sip of fresh servo oil in weeks.

Thankfully, the Digital Art gallery is in the hands of a highly capable person.



Albert Nosehairtrimmings was a modest man, most notorious for his pickle soup dinners, which were mandatory to attend if invited.
He had an unhealthy craving for finely ground up toe nail clippings of little children, of which he would snort line after line on Friday nights. It's the closest legal thing to ingesting baby bones, and cocaine had not been invented yet.
He would patiently collect them in little vials at his job as a kindergarten janitor and cleanse them in XXXX whiskey before going to town on them.

Nobody ever knew why he permanently looked like he had the Valencia Instagram filter applied to his physical being, especially since neither Instagram nor smartphones nor electricity had been invented yet.
Sliced bread was the latest fad at the time, which had just been invented by accident by a knife wielding maniac in a local bakery.
His darkest secret were his violent yet odorless farts, which neighbors described as demonic noises or what would later be known as European techno music.

Aged 81, Albert Nosehairtrimmings died of natural causes - a lightning strike. His grave still smells like burnt toe nail clippings, only recognizable to fellow aficionados of the substance.



Loveless-midnight by MidnightExigent
Stranger Things is beautiful and otherwordly. It gives a strange sense of comfort even in the show's most uncomfortable situations. There is nostalgia and then there's nostalgia executed with excellence.
Those kids... they're kids. One can feel like a kid again watching them. They're awkward, they play, they have adventures.
They really pull you in, don't they? These characters are wonderfully convincing.
We can't help but have a favorite - Eleven, of course. I like "Elf" for her, which also happens to mean eleven in German. Works, right?
That enigmatic, tortured girl can't not be the focus of this feature, hence the title. She speaks very few words through the series and yet expresses so much thanks to Millie Bobby Brown's haunting performance.

We had no difficulties finding amazing fan art pieces for Stranger Things with which we can explore the characters, places and underlying themes. Let's go to the Upsidedown. Don't get lost.

Midnight Thoughts

Fri May 13, 2016, 1:54 PM
It's been a week that has felt like a week hasn't felt in a seemingly long time.
It's edging on depression, except rather than seeping in, the darkness has just been lurking and scratching at the door. It's barely palpable but there enough to make me want to grab it, form it into a ball and throw it at the next best random zombie.

I keep uselessly wishing I had dropped out of DA to waste less time online and to (being forced to) pursue a more normal offline life much sooner than I did. The first half of 2015 was a fucking shit show anyway and there was a point at which I was dead certain it won't last much longer. I desperately held on to it nonetheless. The last couple years while I still worked here I sometimes felt that I couldn't wait to trash talk about working at DA should the time come when that wouldn't be the case anymore.
It actually and gladly didn't materialize and surprisingly I still can't really relate to ex DA staff who went an awful amount of time and energy to rage against the machine after... leaving. 
I had to abandon this ship unceremoniously after working on it for 10 years because someone had too many wet dreams they mistook for great ideas for this strange place.

Currently, for about a half year by now,  I'm struggling to acquire integral skill, knowledge and competence at my chosen new trade but it's happening alongside people at work who are in love with what they do rather than their own grand words that don't match their actions and certainly not the over-promised results.
I have forgiven certain people their grandiose bullshit but only for my own sake.

To inflated egos I might well come off as an asshole. On the other hand, they aren't known for their prowess to perceive things in a balanced manner or a sense of actual fairness. I mean I've been told things in dead seriousness that in retrospect make me wanna recommend some people they go see a psychologist or get fucked in both eye sockets. I used to look up to them and now I wouldn't let them wipe my ass with their bare hands.

I've always been of the opinion that DA should have never sprung from fucking Hollywood, but the fact of that place just explains most of the top-level bullshit that has ever transpired here.

I guess I did just form a little booger ball of darkness and tossed it at the next best zombies. But that's how it's always been. I most motivated to express myself thanks to negative twists.
The really good stuff is for me and those who are actually involved in it.

Midnight Judgement

Sat Apr 30, 2016, 2:12 PM
In which I sort of rate random stuff out of boredom. Feel free to join in.

Music

The new Current Value album 'Biocellulose' is excellent hard-hitting and unique techno-infused drum and bass.
The new Rob Zombie album is just awful.
The new Submerged album 'After Such Knowledge, What Forgiveness?' is beautiful intense drum and bass full sweet melodies and brutal breaks.
The new Limewax album 'Limewax' is alien sex for the ears the defies genres (aka skullstep).
Ritualz's witchy electronic music makes me wanna sacrifice goats for breakfast.


Television

The Americans is my most favorite show in a long time.
The Game Of Thrones season 6 premiere felt as boring as expected.
11.22.63 was super good.
Scandal is just a fuck fest anymore.
Master Of None starring Aziz Ansari is truly good. He's excellent at highlighting the absurdities of the human struggle.
Better Call Saul season 2 kept up the quality level. Calling this show a spin off is almost an insult.


Video Games

Destiny is still a grind fest but I've finally found great fun in the warlock class, especially the stormcaller sub-class.
Diablo 3 is still grindy fun.
Fallout 4's plot sadly vanished way too quickly among stupid settlement janitor servicing and and random shit quests.
The new trailer for Deus Ex - Mankind Divided looks beyond insane and makes me wish I had a fortune for a new gaming PC.


Movies

He Never Died starring Henry Rollins is a seriously impressive movie and by far the best vampire film I know of.
10 Cloverfield Lane was better than expected.


Vices

I'm addicted to inhaling vapors of pepperminty varieties. I have permanently fresh breath.


Work

I mainly fix and service Kyocera copiers and printers as well as computer and network systems and whatever devices used in offices these days and we also do high-end office furniture. I get around a lot and it feels good to be of (technical) service to people in that seemingly mundane aspect of their daily work lives. It's more satisfying than I could have imagined but people need to quit giving fax systems a reason to exist and people need to RTFM.


Internet

Everything is memes and it's fucking depressing.


People

Most of them are fucking nuts and life energy vampires. A few of them are lovely and worthy of deep devotion.


Weather

Two days ago it snowed and today it was very warm. Seasons feel like an obsolete concept these days.
