  1. Any Of The Originals Here Still

    I remember crediting you for the idea of an avetunes skin I made.
  2. Soo.. Is The Win To Mac Mod Scene Dead?

    Came back here today to find the name of an artist I was a fan of back in the day. I ended up going though a bunch of my old post's, it's weird to read something I wrote in my teens...   I ended up just buying macs when I finally got a decent job, on a 2015 macbook pro 15" now. Looking back, everything we did was such a hack job, but it was all so much fun. I don't think I would have ever poked at the internals of windows as much as I did if it wasn't for this place, learned a lot. I really wish I didn't host everything I made here on my damn comcast account though :(   Anyways, miss this site, was the first online forum I felt I was a part of. As long as it's up i'm sure i'll end up poking around here again. Thanks Timan!
  3. Ubuntu Is incredible!

    well sure they are opening up to new users who just want a working computer, but windows is a baby's rattle compared to the complexity of Linux. meaning they cant hold your hand through everything, and you can really easily mess up your system. your gonna have to learn something about terminal sooner or later and some people don't want to have to do that. windows is still more home user friendly, and Linux is catching up, but it is still a ways off, and to promise someone an easy point click experience with Linux would be dishonest. i agree installing Linux is getting easier, with live cd's and such. but the learning curve is still in windows favor. and coldwerturkey: I'm currently on a Ubuntu Linux box, not that i don't use other distro's, but Ubuntu is my favorite. Mostly for the fact that its based off Debian.
  4. Ubuntu Is incredible!

    coldwerturkey- sorry but i just have to correct you on this, Microsoft is "#1" because it got there first, thats it. Having allot of things running at startup on any system will make the boot time slower. and weather or not it's certified by Microsoft makes no difference except one has a sticker. the difference is in the developer, how well they optimize there code, what they are writing it in, bug hunting, etc. windows, believe it or not, is very, very buggy. ever heard of the BSOD? Linux is way more stable than windows in almost every way. but its not perfect, theres always kernel panics, but they will happen allot less then BSOD's. if i had to pull a ratio out of my ass, i would say 100 to 1. When it comes to plug and play, its true that Linux isn't that great. the only reason for this is everything has been made for windows, so unless a developer owns the same hardware as you and has written drivers for it, or just enabled it to be recognized upon plugin, your sore outta luck. but Linux still has better hardware support than windows last time i checked. oh, and Linux has already surpassed windows. look at vista, thats the crappiest piece of software i would ever expect to come out of M$. I tried it out to see what was up and it didn't support about 70% of my hardware, but Linux did without configuration. i mean, if you had to setup a server would you a.)setup a windows box with iis or b.) setup a Linux box with apache? B of course, unless you want to have a site with an uptime of 50%. MacOS9fan- as far as picking a distro, its all about what you want to do, what kind of hardware you got and your level of understanding of the operating system. check out this site http://www.zegeniestudios.net/ldc/ as for your camera, ill bet you can get it working, without much effort, just use Google to find a fix, if that doesn't work, go to the forums and ask the people who know the in's and out's of Linux help you. I've gotten better support for free off a forum then i ever payed for from M$. everyone- if your gonna ***** about how hard Linux is to use, then don't use it, its obviously not for you. i enjoy working on computers and making them do what i want. to put it blunt (and in the form of a vw commercial) on the road, there are passengers and there are drivers, one knows how to use the car, how it works, etc. the other is just along for the ride. sorry for ranting, i don't mean to be rude, i just can stand seeing these myths be spread around the net.
  5. WordPress Plugins

    well i use the lightbox plugin for wordpress to display my images. but if you want to change the way the plugin displays your gallery, your probally gonna need to edit the css.
  6. Best free hosting

    hey, if you want i could give you some space on my server. just message me if your interested.
  7. Vinyl

    wow, i really need to start reading the names of the people who reply...
  8. Vinyl

    well crni hasn't emailed me back yet, is he not reachable?
  9. Vinyl

    heh, i forgot about my old comcast acount. i didn't do that other one your requesting but i think i remember an avetunes version of it. edit: looks like it was only for samurize. ill ask the author real quick if i can port it to avetunes...
  10. AveDesk - Display IP Address?

    heh, im the one that made it... if you want i can edit it to show local ip too
  11. Skinning iTunes.

    not that i know of.... i think there was something for macs, but i cant remember
  12. Ubuntu Edgy + Compiz

    it also works on ati cards, on fgrlx. i am on nvidia with aiglx with the nvidia beta drivers. as far as wireless goes, i have no experience. but i do know there have been allot of howto's posted on the ubuntu forums and the ubuntu wiki. i love linux, switched from windows (modded to look like os x of cource) about a year ago and havent looked back. all the games i regularly play on steam, ive been able to install and play on linux with wine. plus you wouldent belive how much better modifying the ui is than on windows, it may not be easy but it looks so good in the end.
  13. Download / Galleryish Script

    hey timan, i made a picture gallery script a while ago thats pretty simple and easy to customize. though it doesn't have many more features besides viewing pictures, more functionality could be built into it pretty easily. http://cycodude.com/gallary/new/ i never really spent much time on it so its nothing great
