By the way, I've been gone for quite a while. I imagine that I'll continue to be gone. If any of you need me for any reason, email address: Mike.Ryan52[at]gmail.com and my AIM s/n is PDNxMikeR . Read the WSC discussion thread for why.

The m@£$€&%!#?er is back.

Once I get back home in a few hours, I'll load the trial in a virtual machine and check what plugins he has put in this time.

Fixed link

pyrochild edit: And removed link again. We don't need to bump his pagerank, or give him additional traffic...


He even copied most of the feature descriptions. I think the triple-underlined links are from where he even copied the in-text ads, which no longer work. :lol:

Wow, I'm mad that this 'coder', or 'decoder' I should say, those following reasons are:

1. for stealing everything from the Paint.NET developer team.

2. If your going to de-build the application, you might as well be good at making art because that's the purpose of the program.

3. That art he made doesn't match at all with images probably all stolen from Google images, and it would be pointless for him to go through all that trouble of 'making' a new program.

Hello PDN community... I've got a question for ya

This next year I'm going to be a senior in high school, and in my state a Senior Project is required.

Now, like many of you, I am avidly obsessed with graphics and this wonderful program ;)

So, my question is, do any of you have any ideas for projects which involve graphics?

There are some restrictions.. mainly that the project can't just be photography or a graphic gallery -- it's supposed to serve some kind of purpose.

Any ideas?

Okay, forgot to do it yesterday, but remembered today. Installed it and took quick screenies of the files and quickly restored the snapshot to preinstallation.

Screenshots of this time

He's still using 3.36 and quite many plugins also again.

Edit: Added screenies from the previous time. The ones with Oracle VM in the name are the current ones and Sun VM are the old ones. So he has ripped a bunch more plugins since the last time.

Why do you think I closed the source? I got sick of guys like him, and other uses I saw.

(In other news...)

Woops, too big ... !


Ran into this while I've been converting Paint.NET to use Direct2D/DirectWrite instead of GDI+ for all rendering. I have to grab the shield icon and render it myself now, and the Win32 function I was using always gave me the 128x128 version instead of the 16x16 one :)

Everything would have to be in brail

Every pixel would be a different brail hex color, and they'd have to know what that color looks like, even though they may have disabilities. That'd be pretty tricky. I think vector art would be easier. No pixels to deal with, only math.

Hmm, I think I might have Asperger's. Very minor strain, at least. Perhaps it's just unhealthy self-diagnosis... After reading several articles I noticed strikingly familiar symptoms in myself. They might all just be possible quirks and eccentricities, too, though, and I have yet to notice any near-obsessive interests other than my odd strive for perfect English... I suppose I should consult a psychiatrist.

E: There you have it, I just had to edit my mistakes, no matter how small they were in the first place.

E: Twice.

E: And a third time.

Anyway, I was at an amusement park with my friends today. I had fun, but I couldn't ride any of the most extreme attractions because I upset my stomach after one ride. ONE RIDE. :doh: Still, going around the city was amusing and I got to see my friends after not seeing them for a while. :)

Frightenly offtopic:

Some of the other Paint.Net forums (I mean the ones in a different language.) have some pretty cool tutorials. I was specifically very impressed with these ones:




I used Google to translate.

Weird, because in their plugin section, they don't make their own plugins... they post what plugins they have in their effects folders.

Photobucket sucks!
