  1. I don't think so, but I've only been on the planet 9 years so I don't know what it was like in the first place. Then again, look at how in Italy Latin gradually turned into Italian(Is that what it's caled?).

    Wait -- you're nine years old?!?

    Okay, new rant: I wasn't NEARLY that smart 13 years ago! :-) Although within three or four years of that time, I'd taught myself basic HTML, so I suppose it's not too bad...

    Well you just made me feel stupid... Im teaching myself html in another tab right now... and im 15

    Well at least at 13 I was teaching myself C++, which is way more advance than html.

  2. My new 8600GT is in, Yey! :D

    Man, is everybody getting that card? I got one, and ive heard of a lot of other people who have. Also, something you should know, when microsoft released vista sp1, it will come with directx 10.1, which your card will not support. I found out about that shortly after ordering my card.

  3. My rant. Rapidshare. Why? Ok, so im trying to download some stuff, but because rapidshare has the max filesize as 100mb, it was a 2 part download. I just finished the first part, and try to download the second part and get this:

    You have requested videos part 2 (20253 KB).

    You have reached the download-limit for free-users. Want to download more?

    Get your own Premium-account now! Instant download-access! (Or wait 197 minutes)

    Im not going to pay just so I can download stuff. I hate how sites do that. When I was downloading the first part of the videos, I had to wait about 10 minutes because too much people were downloading from the site at the time. These sites try to torture you untill you finally decide to pay. The only benifits for paying to download stuff is that they stop torturing you.

  4. Not by default. I suppose I can go dig into Vista and redirect "Edit" to invoke Paint.net. By default it opens the Picture Manager thing.

    Can't you "reinstall" Paint.NET and select "Set it as my default "X" editor?" using the Advanced option in the installer?

    You can do that for 2 or 3 of the filetypes. I forget which ones, but I dont think jpg is one of them. You can rightclick a jpg file though, go down to open with, click choose program, find paint.net (its located in c:/program files/paint.net), select it, and make sure you have the box that says something like "Always open this kind of file with this program" checked, and hit ok.

  5. It won't be easy on PDN but it CAN be done.

    Blender might be over kill.

    GIMP with custom brushes would be easy.

    But I don't work with GIMP.

    PDN all the way!! :lol:

    Blender or anim8or would be the most realistic way to do it, but it might be easier in pdn or GIMP depending on the complexity. For simple stuff, you could do it in pdn or GIMP, but if you are working on a big file and you want realism, I suggest rendering it.

    I agree with you that blender would make it even easier and such.

    I only gave gimp after watching the video, since I see the guy use lots of brushes for that image. :)

    Those videos are about people doing stuff in a program that isnt meant for it, or stuff that would be really hard. Kinda like all those ms paint videos on those people making all that cool stuff. In order to do realistic shading in a 2D editor, you need to visualize the image as 3D, and have the lighting effects affect the image based on your view of the 2D image. There is no 2D editor that can get shading easily, and thats why people make videos on them doing it. To show off their skills. Its just like how ms paint isnt made for anything but the most basic of all basic graphics, yet people show off and make videos of them doing amazing stuff in it.

  6. Getting any properly-coded XHTML+CSS working right in IE7 is a royal pain-in-the-rear. And then there's IE6, which, unfortunately, still has a huge installed base. If IE7 is a pain-in-the-rear, then IE6 is the cause of 50% (at least) of the suicides in the U.S. every year.

    Its terrible at my school. IE6 is the best browser on their computers. They have that, and some ancient version of firefox, which takes 20x longer to start up than IE6, no support for tabs, and a ton of other stuff. Im not sure what version it is, but its terrible.

    Anyways, go Avant browser!

    EDIT: Honda, that thing about IE is true. I was helping my friend with his computer a while ago, and they were using IE6. Its ok though, I got them firefox.

    EDIT2: You passed 4000 posts! Congrats!
