  1. HAHA! I was trying that out at the same moment that you were posting the reply David. I was going to come on and edit my post to say that I figured it out, but you beat me to it lol Thanx for the quick reply though.
  2. I've noticed that many members have their Signatures centered in the middle of their posts. How does one do that?? Help anyone? Thanx in advance.
  3. Mines was actually an accident. I first started off tinkering with the settings while checking out a font effect tutorial. I liked the text effect so much, I worked my way around it and came up with all kinds of ideas, but eventually decided on this design (thank goodness for unlimited Ctrl + Z lol). I then just made a smaller version for the avatar as well. I just wish I was better at softening the round edges without making it look too blurry and spreading out. I'm not too good with that. :?
  4. Not if Tony Stark' lovely assistant goes back before the Hulk and kills Bruce Banner' father before he meets his mother.
  5. Hulk never turns into me. His alter ego is Bruce Banner. :-) oops, my bad, wrong name. I meant "Bruce" lol :oops: :oops:
  6. Now that's a tough one. This one might even go the full 12 rounds. The Hulk's strength at its peak, let's him smash steel, metal, iron, etc. and withstand incredible blows. So as long as he remains angry, he could give Ironman a pretty good fight. However, The Hulk eventually get's tired. What's going to happen when he turns back to David, or can he control that too? The suit Ironman uses is made from a Gold Titanium Alloy of some sort. That's not including all the powerful weapons that come with it. Then again, what if Ironman's weapons run out, or do they? I'm sure the rockets do, but what about the beam he shoots out of his chest and hands? A good shot from that would give The Hulk something to really think about, that's if he withstands it lol But if Tony Starks was using War Machine, then I don't think The Hulk would have a chance. But going back to the question, I would have to go with Ironman on the 12th round. 8)
  7. Whooaa! :shock: That's a pretty awesome rain effect, grimus99xj. It even matches the scenery. Looks like Armageddon or some major War in the background and acid rain is coming down pretty hard. Very cool. 10/10
  8. May I give a suggestion as to what else you can add to it? lol Well, you can try adding a border to it, but not just any border. Try to give the border a realistic sound wave mini device look or something? Maybe add some settings/adjustment buttons, a blinking light or two or even a vertical line to the far left with numbers as if it's measuring the sound waves? I don't know, try experimenting, just throwing out a couple of ideas. Oh, 7/10...have to rate again lol
  9. Not if you were listening to Led Zep lol Anyway, very nice use of the Gradient Bars to give it a bit of a fire/flame look. But it could use something more? Too much empty space. 7/10
  10. I agree that his concession speech was well written and well delivered, gracious and humble. Now if only his campaign had been run more like that and less like a dump-truck full of manure, maybe I wouldn't despise the ticket so much. Honestly, I wouldn't have had such a problem with McCain if it wasn't for the Palin side of the ticket. That woman is ridiculous. My decision to not vote for McCain because of Palin was most certainly not gender-prejudice, it was because Palin is wholly and abjectly unqualified to take over as president should the circumstance arise. She is inexperienced, she is unfamiliar with basic political necessities, and she proved herself to be horrible at thinking on her feet. I don't want to be lead by a hockey mom - I don't have anything against hockey moms, just against hockey moms running my country. Politics suck, but they are necessary, which is why we have politicians - I'll leave the political jobs to them. After 8 years of quasi-senility, I'm just plain tired of being lead by the least of us, as if it were some twisted testament to the "America Dream" that absolutely anybody can get in the White House, regardless of aptitude or basic qualification. Barack Obama may be inexperienced, but he's well educated and level-headed, and he has a very experienced and intelligent man backing him up as VP. He is in fact the right man for the job. With the economy hanging by a thread and our basic freedoms being encroached upon by our own government, Barack Obama is a unifying force among the American people - just look at the votes: 349-163 in the Electoral College, 63 million to 55.8 million in the Popular vote. That's not a guy who sneaked in and stole the presidency, that's a guy who called out to people everywhere and gave them hope again. As corny as it sounds, it's something we desperately needed. So yeah, I'm proud to have voted for Barack Obama. The next four years will be interesting, that's for sure. :shock: I'm took the words right out of my mouth. Only, the way you said them was better lol
  11. I personally don't own an xbox, but my nephew does. But he has so much personal junk all over it, I can't really see how the recent xbox looks like lol So what mods have you done so far to your xbox jake2k? May I suggest something? lol I'm not sure what can or cannot be added and hooked up to an xbox, but if you can, what if you add an LED light tube (or 2 and color of your choice) to the inside of the case so that the light can show through the top four cut out designs that show on the 3rd image? That would look pretty awesome. Or, if it's possible, (it might require more work though because of the circuit board and all) maybe you can cut out a couple of holes (the size of the LED light tubes) at the bottom of the case and place some LED light tubes there. That will give it the effect of the colored light coming out from underneath the case. That would look pretty awesome as well. 8)
  12. My two favorite colors are blue and purple, so I really like the color choice lol I also like the overlapping of the fonts. nicely done. 9/10
  13. I was a little hesitant to post this topic for two reasons: 1. It was probably already made (I can't seen to find one though. There's one for computer specs, but can't find one about computer mods) so if I'm violating any guidelines, I apologize and the mods can close this topic. And 2. I wasn't sure if anybody would follow it. I decided to try and post it anyways, so here goes. I built this baby (which I named "Beast") from scratch back in 2003 with a huge help from one of my nephews. It has a CD and DVD drive, 4 extra blue LED fans, including a 6" in the front which are all controlled by the front blue lighted panel that you see there. Plus another one that installs on the expansion slots that sucks the air inside the case and blows it back out. We customized the case' door to open out from top to bottom like a draw bridge and added a chrome handle at the top. We covered the wires from the inside of the case with blue and chrome colored tubes for better air flow and to make it look less cluddered with wires all over the place. We took off the original legs of the case and added longer chrome one's to make it taller, also for better air flow at the bottom of the case. We painted the whole inside of the case black before adding anything to it for an even color inside. We topped it off with a blue LED light tube which is what lights up the inside. I chose not to add too much blue LED lights as they will make it look too bright and too much light all over the place get's pretty annoying. Also because too many LED's inside, leads to too much heat and that's what I'm trying to avoid altogether. Anyways, that's just the basic description of the case. Not much to look at, but for my first, I'm pretty proud I guess lol There's still other mods I might want to add, but that's later on. I know the image is a bit too dark, but I wanted the lights and all to stand out more. The blue lighted square you see in the bottom right is the mouse pad which can be set to different colors, but I keep it at blue.
  14. Nice Sig, I like how you made the effect of Mario tossing the fireball. I also like the orange font color from the text at the bottom left. However, it lacks maybe a border? Maybe a border with the same orange color I mentioned thrown in? 8/10 8)
  15. I would have to say being shot by a stray bullet at age 11 and being paralyzed from the neck down for about 6 months. After months of physical therapy, I made a semi full recovery. I only lost about 40% of my right leg movement. That's really nothing, I'm just glad to be alive.
  16. I've had the nickname "Chito" since I was born, but eventually some of my friends would sometimes call me "ChitoDog", so it kind of stuck. I use them both interchangeably though.
  17. When it's the very first program you open as soon as you turn on your computer and the last one to close, even though you don't really want to.
  18. Nice basic use of the LightRays. Nice set (matches your avatar) 8/10. 8)
  19. Very nice examples of the finished effect, but I was somewhat stuck and a little confused with this tutorial. You state: I tried positioning the mouse on "0,599" but according to the measurements that show at the bottom right of PdN, "0,599" starts at the bottom left of the canvas, not the top right. So shouldn't it be "599,0" instead? I was also somewhat stuck on step 12. particularly where you say, which layer are you talking about from the 2 and how do you move it upwards? I see at the bottom of the "Layers" window that one choice says "Move Layer Up". Is that what you mean? If so, when I click the bottom layer to move up, nothing happens. Also you say in step 12, Do you mean to raise the image size up to 1200, or to raise the canvas size to 1200? Basically all of step 12, especially the beginning 2 or 3 sentences, sound a bit confusing to me. If it's not too much trouble to explain step 12 with a little more details, I'd appreciate it. Thanx in advance.
  20. I liked this effect so much, I ended up redoing my avatar and sig to match as a set. Great tut, thanx for sharing it. 8)
  21. Thanx david, I wasn't sure which one it was since the tut called for "Median Blur", so that's the one I was trying to look for lol. Thanx again man.
  22. I can't seem to find the "Median Blur" and I have PdN version 3.36. I looked under the "Blurs" Category and I don't see anything that says, "Median Blur". The only thing I see that comes close is in the "Noise" Category, but that one is only called, "Median". The author of this tut stated that the "Median Blur" is suppose to come with PdN, but I don't see it. Am I suppose to install the plug in or something? Thanx in advance for any help.
