Rants *enter at own risk*

Geahk. My USB mouse just died (no more batteries) so I am having to use the trackpad on my lappy. Have you ever attempted to use Opera's mouse gestures with a trackpad? Much less get the coordinates correct when drawing lines in PdN?

For PDN, use the Up/Down/Left/Right keys. I just love 'em.

Yes. All the time, in fact. I've been doing design on a laptop for three years, and I've never owned a USB mouse. I just turned the tracking down so I can be precise. ;)

Rant: Even BoltBait is quoting images.

I did?! :oops:

Where?

EDIT: Unless you're talking about my posts in The Galleria, I only once quoted a thumbnail, NOT a full-sized picture. :roll:

I've found Line Rider to be impossible on those things...

Yeah, Doom III is impossible on those things too. :lol:

Surprisingly, Halo 1 wasn't. And on an old Dell with 32 megs of video ram too.

Results like this make one smile (view the second page especially). :)

I think that this was an excellent example of how our forum members should always help people. Sure, people don't search. Yes, threads are created with ambiguous titles. They should read the rules, most definitely - and perhaps they have. People still make mistakes. I think that they should be corrected, but not reproached. Notify them of their mistake in a polite manner, and get on to the point (actually help them).

Also, use of the search feature is stressed too much. Suggest to them that they could have searched to see if they could find an answer (and by all means, tell them to use http://www.searchpaint.net, and not the built in forum search), and move on.

We don't want everyone to say "Yeah, Paint.NET is great! But don't ask for help at its forum.", right?

Of course, there are times when someone does something silly and has to be reprimanded. But generally, be a help. It has to be taken on a case-by-case basis.

This is my idea on the matter. I am probably over-exaggerating. ;)

I'm using PdN for about three months, but I have absolutely no idea what's that "pan" tool for...

And now my rant: I feel stupid :B

You shouldn't. Take a look at #8 on this page. It's simply to move your view of the image. ;)

My rant: Today has been the most ostentatiously horrific, awful, dreadful, miserable, tedious, tiresome, horrible, appalling, terrible day of my life so far. First we had literacy, we just revised stuff we already knew, same in maths, at break, as usual, I had no-one to play with, next was science, same as maths and literacy, at lunch, we actually only get 5 minutes to eat our lunch because we have to be on the coach nearly instantly, when we got to the swimming baths, it was the same as maths, literacy and science, until the end where we had to swim through hoops underwater, which I couldn't do and ended up crying because it was so embarrassing, then everyone was allowed in the deep pool, and I was the only one who stayed in the shallow end, so that was another 10 minutes of tedious laps, then, when we got back, Mrs. Carroll, my teacher, sent me, Erin and Tia on a trip to find Alisha Modha, and we had checked in every class but one, and she was in that one, 5LM, when she should have been in 4HW, and that took us an hour, so when we got back. Mrs. Carroll was extremely angry with us, and she shouts extremely loudly when she is angry, and we had walked in in the middle of a D.T. (Design Technology, my worst lesson) demonstration, and I had to sit with Alisha, one of the eight mad, deranged, insane girls who follows me everywhere, who was obviously delighted at this, while she showed me what we had to do, then I had to spend another hour designing the front cover for my Cam, which is what we're making in D.T., and then, just when the last pair was about to go up, us, we had to pack away, so that was all rather pointless, then I had to carry an abnormally large coat, a soaking wet, heavy swimming kit and an extremely large, heavy rucksack down the three roads that separate my house and the school. All in all, I am soaked, extremely sad, extremely tired and extremely annoyed. Now THAT is a rant for you. And no, I did not leave anything out about my day, there was actually nothing happy AT ALL about my day.

My rant:

Nearly everyone in my class calls me Wallace when my name isn't Wallace! :twisted: And the story behind Wallace is a very "long" one which if you must know (which I doubt :wink: ), I'll tell you - later . . .

Is your name, in fact, Gromit? ;-)

Ha ha, David!

:D Really though, what is the story? And what is your name?

My real name is Aziz Miah.

The story behind Wallace is this:

A few weeks ago, in my music lesson, we got a trainee teacher. Our TT (trainee teacher) was commenting on our group work that we did, the week before last. When she was commenting on Group 2 (my group), she said, Jamie, Ronnie and Wallace (when she should've said Aziz!) And of course, then it all started. My real music teacher who was observing the TT then said (jokingly), "Where's Gromit Then!!??" Everyone was laughing and even I did - a bit. The name Aziz and Wallace are not all related to each other, are they now? (Don't answer that question by saying YES! :twisted: ) I know for a fact that this TT finds her own handwriting hard to read so I wasn't too angry.

But, boy was I wrong.

I'm also unfortunate enough to have this unwanted "popularity/attention" (basically everyone knows me for the wrong reason). This came from a song about my name, it's hard to explain unless I actually sing it to you, it's basically my name repeated in a tune. It's quite catchy (even if i do say so myself!). And ever since the name Wallace came out, people either sing the "Aziz song" or the "Wallace song" or even a mixture of both.

Of course, when people sing and call me Wallace, they do it as a joke and I don't mind as long as it doesn't get out of hand.

I could go on for a while longer but I can't be bothered - for now . . . :wink:

So there you go - my real name(s) and the story behind my fake name.

I keep getting called By my surname at school, and I don't mind, as there is another James (my first name) in my class, and these year 11's, some of my freinds, took my lunch card and read out my surname, but not my first, so I get called Stringer, or Milkybar Kid, because I have a startling resemblence to the MBK.

ff-topic: Milky, did you steal my idea for the thingy in the location box, or have I just never noticed it before?

My rant: I can't think of a rant. But I just have, which makes that a lie.

My rant: I just lied.
