  1. Pixey goes with the 4-peat with this impressive tutorial for shiny objects with internal reflections (that is actually barely a "mini"-tut)!
  2. Mini-Tut #15 Shiny Chevron with Internal Reflections by Pixey, in response to Unovic Original thread: Anyone know how to create a logo like this? Original post: 513728
  3. As far as I'm aware, that's impossible. Plugins can't make those sorts of changes.
  4. All right, this thread is going in circles. If Rick has any new information, he can unlock. Thanks all.
  5. Not ridiculous, but also not likely. It's not something that could be added via plugins, so it would fall to the single developer on the project, and I very much doubt it would happen. As Toe said, it wouldn't really fit with the Windows look and feel. Welcome to the forums!
  6. Set your network connection to "metered." That makes all upgrades manual. Easy-peasy.
  7. Well, Mozilla is a multimillion dollar corporation with thousands of paid employees, all of which helps them to maintain support and bandwidth for legacy versions of their program. In contrast, Paint.NET is developed by a single person, in his spare time, with no steady stream of income generated, and with only volunteers to provide support. So, apples to oranges.
  8. Oh it does. Try registering a new account - we have tons of spam-prevention measures in place. People are just very persistent.
  9. Not possible by plugins; they can only do effects, adjustments, and filetypes. Not context menus. EDIT: By not possible, I meant the context menus. Good on you, toe, for jumping in so fast!
  10. Not natively. You might look into a third-party program, but there is no functionality built-in.
  11. Plane altitude and car power, I'm with you. Inches for screens should probably be regionalized, since you want to be able to envision the actual size easily.
  12. He probably wasn't angry, just busy. And yes, he is the only developer, believe it or not!
  13. What is installing may actually be Windows 10; it installs the base of the OS, then silently downloads and installs updates in the background. Wait a little while and try again.
  14. Sorry to hear about that. Have you tried everything in this post? http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/18931-fatal-installation-error-1603-fix/ And this one? http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/30437-win7-error-1603-32-bit-msi-may-not-be-installed-on-64-bit-os/ And this one? http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/692-install-update-or-uninstall-trouble-read-this/?p=397416
  15. That's why I split out the conversation. *glares at Eli and IRON* Also, It was not a simple comparison. The image you posted was straight ridicule and contained profanity. There isn't anything there that wasn't an insult. Be that as it may, most of your mods and fellow forum users are from the US. Consider your audience. Many a cruel person has hidden behind "don't kill the messenger," but it is not a good argument.
  16. I understand, thank you. I just wanted to head off any issues before they occurred.
  17. Split out offtopic discussion to http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/107639-metric-vs-imperial-life-vs-science/ .
  18. We don't exactly get to choose our proportions and sizes in life. Your comment doesn't make any sense. Anyway, I'm sorry to hear that most of the mod staff and forum population are laughingstocks to you. You're welcome to your opinion; but please refrain from insults, and remember that images and text with inappropriate language will be removed.
  19. You are of course welcome to seek help here, but please do keep Rule #12 in mind while posting and post generally (not specifically) or create family-safe images to display any concepts you need to get across. Thank you!
  20. As I noted, it has an official measurement now, which is the distance light travels in a certain time. But I do believe that they chose that particular length (the equator fraction) as a base SI unit because of its similarity to the nose-fingertip length.
  21. I take issue with your taking issue with my statement. How often is the boiling point of water useful for your life? If you're trying to decide what to wear for the day, you might want to know about the freezing point of water, but you'll die so long before the boiling point that there's no use even having it on the scale. Besides, Fahrenheit offers far more graduations between "chilly" and "hot"; almost twice as many, if you consider 50°F/10°C to be "chilly" and 80°F/25°C to be "hot". And if you're trying to estimate the weight of the fruit you're about to buy, how often are you going to have a liter of water nearby, as opposed to the hand at the end of your arm? I would be willing to bet that a meter was indeed based on the nose-to-fingertip measurement (though it is officially designated as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second). But if you're trying to, say, quickly mark off an ad-hoc sporting field, either definition is utterly useless. The length of your foot, though, would be quite useful for that pursuit. And far be it from me to disagree with a professional, but according to a quick Google search, the average foot length for adult men (ed.: in North America) is a little over ten inches; add a little bit on either side for a shoe, and you have yourself a pretty reasonable approximation of twelve inches. So I maintain my insistence that Imperial is good for life, and metric is good for science.
  22. There is only one developer; his name is Rick Brewster, and he reads this forum. By posting here you have already contacted him.
