  1. Kingdom of Loathing! Its free, but its text based. Its still extremly fun and addictive, and unlike most online games, its not full of spamming little 6 year olds.
  2. GO TOOL! One of my favorite bands. Now listening to: Tool
  3. The same thing ive been listening to since tuesday Bullet for my valentines new CD
  4. lol, i love that video... Anyways, to continue your Holographic touchpad idea, scientists are making contact lenses with computer chips which will be able to display floating screens visible to the wearer. I saw an article on cnet a couple weeks ago about this. They say they should get to the point of displaying simple, few pixel images "sometime in the near future". Computing will be amazing in the future though. I was messing around with my millinium windows comp a while ago. Its amazing how much things change. Future gaming will be insane though. I remember playing games on my nes and playstation. I remember every gameboy release. Games seemed amazing enough back then. Its funny to go back and replay them. When morrowind was released, i was stunned by how amazing the graphics were (http://www.spilkanon.dk/elder.jpg). I spent about the first 30 minutes playing that game just wandering around looking at all the scenery and everything because it was just so amazing. This was one of the most high-tech game at the time (2001 i think). Now, i would have to say the most advanced game is crysis (video picture) and there is still a TON of stuff that is being added to games due to advances in computers. Anyways, it will be impossible to predict what a distant future version of PdN will be like. Things change a ton really fast.
  5. A good site for photoshop brushes is http://www.psbrushes.net Well at least its the only site i know of and have used
  6. Just browse the tutorial section for something that looks cool. Birthday cards vary in design, so theres not going to be a "make a perfect birthday card" tutorial. Just look for ones on how to make backgrounds you think look cool, and some cool font on dafont.
  7. There is a text tool on the toolbar. Its icon looks like this: Just click that, click where you want text, and start typing.
  8. My rant: 3390mb download. Do I need to say more? On the plus side though, its downloading at just under 800 kb/sec. Still though, its about an hour and a half. For all of you with dial up, I have no idea how you live. EDIT: Oh yea, then I have to split it into 4 seperate files, transfer them to my computer, put it back together, and install.
  9. I dont see why this is in this section, seeing how its not related to PdN. This seems like something that should be in the overflow.
  10. still a noobie Agreed. I used Paint.NET for over eighteen months before I registered, and I would still consider myself a newbie when I started. Thinking about it, it was acctually 1 year ago today when I first used PdN. It took me a while before I could acctually make something decent enough that you wouldnt close your browser the second you saw it. Ive gotten a ton better at graphics this last year, but ive moved on from the purely PdN part of myself.
  11. Ill give my review, seeing how I used photoshop everyday last semester. Overall, PdN > PS. Photoshop: Pros: customizable brushes, a good ammount of filters to work from, different color modes to work with, liquify, takes up a ton of space, and all the power you will ever need. Cons: Not the best UI, slow startup, too many useless features, poorly orginized tools window, many additional filters cost extra, some filters are terrible (ex. Clouds. You cant change the scale, or anything at all. This might be fixed in a modern version, but not the version I was using), way too pricy. PdN: Pros: easy to learn, lots of effects, great UI, takes up little space, fast, freeware. Cons: No support for custom brushes, lack of some blend modes, not enough power (yet).
  12. Frojo says GIMP is better. Frojo also says GIMP + PdN = 2D graphic awsomeness, and much better than photoshop. Frojo also says GIMP + PdN + Blender = Graphic godliness. And Frojo also says Photoshop = huge, slow, expensive, and full of pointless things that do the exact same stuff as some of the other things in photoshop. You dont need 5 things to do the exact same thing.
  13. Im behind with a couple plugins. This will help me get up to date faster
  14. Microsoft makes PC software though, not the keyboard. :wink: Back on topic: "What I've Done" - Linkin Park Ive got a microsoft keyboard. They make a ton more than just software. Atreyu - Her portrait in black
  15. IE 8 passed the Acid2 test FF3 is supposed to as well.
  16. Wow, this has finnally been made a tutorial? Will the pyro-based sig theme ever end? starts recreating pyros new sig to get ahead of the rest
  17. I can only use a third of the stuff on my printer. I can print, but thats it. I cant scan, do the camera stuff, or all of the other stuff it comes with. Stupid vista... Why did my XP computer have to die?...
  18. Yea, I requested this a long time ago. I hope to see this in a future version, because it makes working with larger images a lot easier. I suggested something like GIMPs fullscreen mode, where you can access all your effects and all that other stuff by right-clicking
  19. I share a year with Myrddin. Yea, it wasnt where I live. There was one in Co. Springs, where pyro lives, and another in Arvada, which is north of me. Im up in Arvada all the time, including later that night. And at David, I live right next to Columbine. I acctually could have gone to that High School, because its not too much farther away than the one im in now.
  20. Wow thats a lot of plugins. This will save people who dont already have them all a TON of time. Downloading each plugin on the forums individually takes a long time. I wish everyone could do this.
  21. Now, to change the subject of the clearly ripped off version of paint.net, heres another thing from cnet: http://www.download.com/Digital-Photogr ... =cnetfd.mt 5th in most popular isnt bad. Still behind PS and PSP though, but ahead of most the other free graphics editors
  22. This belongs in the overflow. This section is for questions about Paint.net, not MS paint.
  23. You've gotta be kidding me... I guess I should have voted that day... You'd have won
  24. I say read the rules and post your work in the pictorium
