      So awhile ago I made a website for myself to showcase how much of a Simpsons nerd i am:

      www.simpsonsgeek.com

      Pretty much just a photo-blog, where I take pictures of anything and everything that reminds me of a funny quote. Very simple, but I've been having fun with it.

      Anyways, enjoy.

      Not sure if this should be part of the official Apple thread or not, but whatever.

      Attn: Mac Users. Has anyone else upgraded to 10.7 OS yet? If so, what do you think? Usually when I upgrade OS versions I end up finding a few nifty changes, but this time I'm pretty disappointed overall. Cases in point:

      - The Quick Preview (by hitting spacebar to glance at a file) is now slow as hell. They've added features to quickly open a file if you choose, but it now takes forever to load something even as simple as a multi page PDF (it's actually quicker for me now to open things in the application, which kinda defeats the purpose)

      - No more support for Power PC applications. Granted, this was a long time coming, and needed to be done. Plus any major/reputable software developer is already on board with switching to Intel apps, but a lot of those mini apps and diamond-in-the-rough utilities that people gathered over the years now may not work. Just a head's up more than anything.

      - this is a minor thing, but bring the friggin scroll bars back! They removed them to save real estate, which I didn't realize was even a concern, and they've removed the up/down arrows entirely. I like using Macs but the idea of putting aesthetically pleasing design before functionality is a poor design choice. If you want something that looks nice, go to an art museum; a computer is a functional machine, function should come first, then make it look pretty.

      - to expand on Matt's point he made in a journal a little while ago, the new OS is more iOS based, which may be nice for casual computer users, but for anyone who uses their computer for their job (case in point, I do graphic design) I don't think the iOS kind of set up is the way to go. Interesting to see how future operating system (Mac or PC) will work for non-casual users.

      Anyways, don't want to go on and on and come off as a cynic, just curious if anyone else has experienced any of this.

      Also, PLEASE don't turn this into a Mac vs PC thread. We're all better than that.

      Hey all,

      Please use this thread to pimp any and all design resources you have (print, web, or whatever other media you like). They do not need to be resources made by you, only resources that you'll found useful and wish to share. (although if they are yours all the better.) Also, they don't necessarily have to be FREE resources, but again, if they are all the better.

      Resources may include:

      - design theory sites/blogs
      - noteworthy tutorials and tutorial website
      - stock photo websites
      - font resources
      - colour theory websites/colour palette resources
      - application specific resources. (ie: Photoshop Brushes/Stamps/Actions, Illustrator Brushes/Symbols, plug-ins for applications, etc)
      - handy website applications (ie: easy-to-use software for blogs, mailing lists, plug-ins, etc)
      - web script resources/references (javascript, actionscript, PHP, ASP, etc etc etc)

      Please ensure that whatever resource you share is something that you've found useful in some way, and any testimonial accompanying the link is much appreciated.

      Also, PLEASE don't let this become a link-dump for every last little shitty photoshop tutorial that does nothing but use a bunch of arbitrary plug-ins. I like to think there are designers out there who don't rely on pithy fluff to create everything.

      GO!

      Hey all,

      Thought I'd start this thread up again, if anyone's interested in contributing. Please post any of your digital artwork here; anything that makes good use of the Wacom or any other kind of pen tablet or Cintiq or whatever.

      If you don't know what I'm talking about, go here, buy one, and come right back. I'll wait.....

      .....okay, good.

      Also, not to be a dick, but please keep the criticism of other people's work to a minimum (unless they request criticisms or suggestions or whatever).

      Go.

      Also, I asked DiMono, since he's an admin. He said that kind of decision is left up to one of the main cast guys. I guess fortune smiled upon me this day. At least I had a good reason.

      that was the BEST comment i've gotten, that's the kind of depth i've been wanting. thank you very much for your input. I agree with everything you say, i just havn't figured out how to live without him yet.
      I can always break up with him. but you don't get too many chances to make something work. So I'm giving it another shot for now. I know what's right and whats wrong, i know some things are learned and somethings you just do... One day i'll be strong enough to let him go, or one day he'll be smart enough to respect me the way i should be.

      thank you so much for what you said, it made me feel soo much better about myself.

      I am positive most of, if not all, of my watchers just don't post here anymore or basically never did. When I had those tens of thousands of friends and ran contests the people most likely to watch me are the same people who likely just have dead accounts now. With you know, maybe a few hundred exceptions but that's why I lost a few hundred watchers over the last three years. haha.

      We should brain storm ways to make this place awesome for us again. By brain storm, I mean if either of us has a stupid idea lets just do it.

      And the National Federation of Loomsmiths Local 103 (aka "Loomies") have been on strike since March, so no luck there.

      Seeing how you're talking about Canada, I have no idea whether that sentence was serious or not...

      Seriously, when I started the first episode, i texted finch [he had been trying to talk me into watching it for a while].. he said "oh, you're going to love Dale Cooper." ....shortly afterward, i texted him back like "..... Agent Cooper has been on my screen for five minutes, and I'm already swooning. Where can I get one?"

      And I have never had a bigger instant crush on a fictional character as I do on Agent Cooper. Seriously, i want my own.
