  1. Sci-Fi suggestions needed

    Good man! Farscape is an excellent choice. As the seasons continue, I believe it gets stronger as a series. It was unfortunate that they cut it short to only four seasons; the 'miniseries'/film was created to tie up the loose ends but I feel in parts the acting falls victim to the time between it and the concluding season, and the fact that they had a fair amount to wrap up in a mere four hours. A brilliant series nonetheless. I'm currently working my way through The X-Files (on season four); therefore I hold-heartedly recommend that once you've finished your lengthy to-watch list. Not only are the stories compelling, they are in equal measure frightening. The character interactions between Mulder and Scully are, in my opinion, top-notch. What's more: Gillian Anderson. I have heard Duchovny becomes only a recurring actor post-season seven, so we'll see how that pans out. The revived series of Doctor Who peaks and troughs (the latter far more so in recent seasons), and if you don't have the inclination to entertain the notion of watching it, don't. I love Doctor Who, but I have quickly come to see it for its many (many) faults and watch it only as a filler for forty-five minutes. (Matt Smith/Steven Moffat's tenure is seeing fit to change that.) I cannot comment on the 'Classic' series. Any of my other proposed suggestions have been, well, suggested.
  2. Hello, Safetybiz. To reiterate what Frontcannon just wrote, Paint.NET is a raster image editor: it cannot be used for video manipulation, embedding of media, or other extraneous functions. Equally so, despite Paint.NET's previous passive interactions with Microsoft (which is now no longer affiliated with such), there is no chance of you seeking help for other Microsoft products here because of that fact. A better route would be searching Microsoft's support channels, or other, dedicated tech support sites (http://forums.techguy.org/, http://techsupportforum.com/). In answer both your questions: no. We're sorry we couldn't be of more help. (Speaking of help, or lack thereof, I am removing the links to the files you posted. There are of no benefit to the topic, and it would not be too great if something untoward was to occur from their download. This is of no personal slight against you.)
  3. The <off topic> thread

    I was in the same boat: the 'old' Forum was a thumbnail on my Chrome homepage so instinctively I clicked it, only to be greeted by a 404. A quick Google later and I met the new, shiny Forum. (Catching up with the past few months will be a lesser hardship than acclimatising to the new Forum theme, however.)
  4. The <off topic> thread

    Hell fire, this is all shiny. It is much overdue to catch up...
  5. paint.net license

    Yes, because to compliment Rick's immense ability to code, he is also psychic. If he knew the answer already, he would not have asked. Speaking of asking, you have an insatiable curiosity for Paint.NET; from its roadmap, to its features, to its licence terms. This, in turn, piques my curiosity in you...
  6. Rants *enter at own risk*

    Hi! I do float around here and there, but not as often as I used to/should. That could be my rant, that I haven't been visiting as much as I'd like.
  7. B/W photoshopping

    You would have to guess what the colours were/might be, then manually replace the colour. Give these a try: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=2309 viewtopic.php?f=36&t=27823

  9. Hello, emailguyinphilly. Give these topics a good look through, they should cover everything: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=32319 viewtopic.php?f=12&t=31878 viewtopic.php?f=12&t=30368
  10. Edit Text

    Hello wedna87. No, there is no text editability in Paint.NET. There is the plugin you can try, though: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=24685 Make sure you render any text on a new layer, only for the sake of ease if you need to delete/manipulate it somewhat.
  11. pic formats

    The PDN format, however, will preserve everything 32-bit PNG does as well as layers. Basically, everything.
  12. Quick question

    Please read the Rules before posting again. [rule=6]A descriptive topic title[/rule] helps everybody. (Regarding your problem, if Feather does not render in the desired way, try the various Oultine plugins to outline the logo in the background colour (there is one by BoltBait and another by pyrochild).)

  13. Please make sure to post in the correct section; it helps everybody in one way or another. If it is regarding a particular tutorial you can post in the topic itself, this way all solutions are kept in one location. Moved to General Discussion & Questions
  14. We moderators watch out for any such behaviour, but as with anything a few cases slip the net. If anyone notices postings of an unacceptable harshness, please help us to help you by reporting the disagreeable post. (The small red exclamation mark in the corner of the post is the way to go about this.) It would be best if non-moderators were to refrain from taking action themselves by PM'ing offenders -- the last result we need is the formation of a vigilante group moderating under the radar left, right and centre.
