Knowhow Trading Post / Firefox issues
« on: April 21, 2006, 05:05:06 am »
Bleh. I've come to the people who I really hope can assist with this.

My computer failed last month and I had to reinstall everything, includiing firefox. After about a week and an update, it started messing up on me. Whenever I try to save any sort of file, it errors out and closes all my windows. Now I love this browser and I dont want to have to switch, but having to copy past links into internet explorer so I can save a simple image is getting old.

Any help would be fantastic.

Technical Support / Transfers tonight (For Xepher)
« on: April 12, 2006, 10:08:17 pm »
Xepher since my computer recently died, I've been forced to copy my public_html folder back onto my computer this evening. That will explain the rather large transfer because it is the entire site, pictures and coded pages. I will be clearing out old files and then reuploading with the many changes. There should be multiple new images up and the excess images that weren't being used should be there as well.

I didn't know where else I shoudl post this. >.>

General Chat / Too much gaming
« on: August 03, 2005, 01:38:41 am »
I know it is a crazy thought, but it can happen. I'm am asking everyone here who plays any sort of video game/game or even watches so much of one show that it affects their daily lives.

I play World of Warcraft like no tomorrow. I am not afrad to say it. I am addicted. I have gained so many great friends through this game. But right now that isn't the topic.

So one evening after playing WoW for many many hours, I sit down to find something on the television. I flip over to MTV on accident and a music video is just beginning. Too lazy to change the channel, I keep watching. What happens is that this guy is walking into a party. So pretty much my brain registers some guy walking into a people infested house. The back of my mind automatically think, "Jesus this guy is so stupid. He is going to aggro EVERYTHING. I hope he is high enough level or has some support to back him up, or he is so ganked."

I blinked a few times, realized what I just thought and turned off the television. I promptly went to bed, hoping that never happened again.

My friends have caught themself asking 'How much silver is it?" before.

My best friend was trying on clothes with her mom and the shirt was too small. She almost said, "What's the next level?" I was like, "I would so say, "What stats does it have?" to see if it was worth looking like a tard."

That's it. >.>

Art / dA in ruins?

(Added here because Xepher pointed me in the right direction. Thanks. :P)

If any of you are at deviantART and you haven't been following this, it is just crazy. I'll see what links I can scrape up for everyone here.

From what I understand, Scott Jaroff aka Jark, has been laid off of the deviantART staff. For those of you non DA'ers, Scott was a co-founder of DA. From comments he has made, it seems as if he had no choice in the matter. He clearly states they had cut off his dA email without his consent.

dA shows that they can and will delete commetns fi it suits their needs. They clearly state that they would never allow deletion of alteration of comments, but they have. Screenshots prove this:

Afterwods: I can't find the screen for it, but it is now a 404 error. Has been following the resignations from dA staff. I've counted over 8 and really don't want to get the real number. It is a sad thing indeed.

People all over dA are uniting together and saying, "This is bull." Many are on hiatus until August 7, dA's 5th birthday. The goal is to grind dA to a halt. Many deviants do not wish for deviantART to become more commercial than community. I honestly don't either.

dA has give so much to me no one would believe. When I started on deviantART in 2003 I believe, I sucked at art. deviantART gave me the motivation to learn how to draw correctly and try new things. If not for deviantART I might have never progressed. As soon as you know someone is actually seeing your art and can comment and help on it, then you know you've got to get to work. I wont say I am the best artist out there, because I surely am not, but I will state I have gotten better. After two years of being on dA, I have moved up from sketches in a sketchbook that follow no proportional las, to digital images, paintings and other traditional mediums.

the community of dA has offered so much to me as well. I have gained such everlasting friends as Sary, who I got to come here and apply. Aeyoqen from deviantART and I still correspond through MSN messenger and are deeply unnerved by all that is happening to dA.

If dA goes down the tubes I cannot say I will stay with them. I have my own site for a reason and can update it as much as dA if I lose dA. As of now, I am planning new features for the site because frankly, this is just getting annoying with everything that is happening on deviantART. The greatest loss will be the people, and I can't bring the people to my personal site.

I know this was a little crazy of a post. I expected it to be better but I am being rushed to clean the house. Unexpected guests. >.<
