Ooh, you can't escape the blue screen of death. It's Microsoft's favourite thing!

Ok..lol. But truthfully. Did you know that in Windows 95/98, you could customize the color scheme of the blue screen of death? There was some configuration fine somewhere that allowed you to specify the foreground and background colours. Eg, I once had my BSoD appear red instead.

For the sake of the whole OS-tan craze that took place a couple pages back.... I thought that I should represent the Linux community.. (at least, I didn't recall seeing Linux-tan there..)

Ok, so she's not as hot as the Windows girls. But.. meh...

Hear! Hear!

I really like that actually, rcxAsh - even though I'm clearly staked out on the other side of the fence!

I should have taken more note on what I jumped into on the last page...

Inuzuka - Aaah! My eyes! my eyes! How on earth can you work on such a bright desktop? I have no qualms with the design but it's just too white! I can't even read the icon labels since they've been antialiased to white on the edges.

Shay : V.Cute!! However, once more my eyes were blinded open revealing the spoiler space. I'm now going to wear shades before I suffer any permanent retinal damage.

I hope both of you two are using TFT screens and not CRT's otherwise you may find you can't get rid of that wallpaper quite soon! If you know what I mean ^_~.

M$ OS's without the BSOD will never happen (or RSOD or GSOD or whatever colour scheme floats your boat ). I wouldn't have it any other way and I'm sure Bill wouldn't either. I can just see him laughing manically away on his chair right now, stroking the cat sitting on his left armrest....

Well I am using a TFT monitor but I still don't know what you mean.
Please explain.

Sure. Simply put, In a CRT screen an electron 'gun' fires high energy electrons at 'phosphor' dots on the inside of the CRT screen, which then convert this energy into light which we see. However, if very bright static images are constantly displayed on the screen for too long (we are probably talking quite a while here though, my comment was partly made in jest ) - then the phosphors can end up producing a low level amount of light all the time (even when the screen should be black), which looks like a shadow of the image that was there previously.

It's a very much like when you look at a bright object, then look across to a dark area - you can see a faded version of the image in your eyes for a short time. Luckily our eyes are a bit better at handling it than CRT's

It is a phonomenen known as 'burn-in', which is what screensavers are supposed to protect against. Usually, keeping an image moving is sufficient to prevent this happenening even if it is very bright.

Anyway, enough of that - let's see some more cracking walls! I'm sure i've bored people enough!

Well....If one looks closely at the image, it will be obvious (for those with photoshop knowledge) that Plastic Wrap has been used numerous times. On what, I don't know. Lot's of layers have been Plastic Wrapped, at least 3-4. At which time, they have been distorted using the distort filters (for instance Shear). Another thing I see in it, is that a small Radial Blur (Zoomed mind you) might have been used on one (or more?) layers (duplicates of the original layers) creating the glowy effect on those original layers.

...............................

Right, something just popped in my mind, maybe the Plastic Wrap was used on some randomly placed Lens Flares on a couple of different layers. If so, then the layer modes of those particular layers must have been Screen if the Lens Flare was put on a black background (seems the most logical to me )

Furthermore, a grid has been used too.
For the more lighter parts (on the right for instance) there could have been a Lens Flare below it, or it could have been lightened by the Dodge Tool.

Lot's of things I can get out of it
Am I a freak now?

Well you learn something new everyday. Thanks EtherNEZ. I'd give you good rep but it seems you are one of those pussycats who has it disabled.

Hehe, you like the window decorations eh? I made them myself ^_^ (the title bar decorations that is).

The scroll bars and stuff were made by someone else. But I needed to make some window decorations that matched that scheme. In addition, the decorations that I was using previously was meant for the standard title bar on top. So the buttons lookind kind of out of place.

Having the title bars on the side is quite the experience! I think I like it. It's great for when I shade the windows, because my screen is wider than it is tall. And of course, being different is just a nice perk.. hahah
