ODN Icons – FTL: Faster Than Light

ODN Icons – FTL: Faster Than Light

Finally something new to upload! It always bothers me when icons are sized like they’re for Windows 95. I took the 2 main icons from FTL and made gigantic versions of them. It took a LOT longer than I had hoped because I used Filter Forge for the planets and rendering them at 5120px x 5120px takes several hours. I tried even bigger sizes but it kept locking up. GameIcon is the icon Steam uses for shortcuts & EXEIcon is…

2014 In Retrospect

2014 In Retrospect

Nyo, all you wonderful people out there casually stop by this dusty old site. I want to ramble about myself today. For me 2014 was a weird year. I had a lot of health problems, which thankfully turned out not to be major. Though it did affect my state of mind and my work. What was going on was I was getting swelling in my legs and sores that wouldn’t heal, along with my heart randomly skipping beats for a…

Stupid Spam

Stupid Spam

So this weekend I got a spam marked as Atmos Energy, a natural gas company, saying my bill was overdue. Naturally all of the links were fakes, leading to a Russian site. Another link going to a URL starting with swinstart…really? As in SWINDLE START? Jeez, you guys are ballsy. There are 3 kickers here. 1. I don’t have gas run to my house. I’m all electric. 2. Atmos Energy doesn’t do business locally anymore. Back early last year their…

Update ‘n Stuff

Update ‘n Stuff

Oops, I Fonted… So another year has gone by and I still haven’t gotten any of my fonts comfortably done. I though I had messed up and used the wrong size template to make them. So I started to edit them with a “corrected” template. Problem is that was the WRONG thing to do. The template was fine, the units I had it displaying was wrong. So I made edits when I didn’t need to…crap. Good news is that I…

ICONS! er… ICON!

ICONS! er… ICON!

Minecraft by default has some butt-ugly program icons in Windows. They don’t use the capability of having 256×256 sized icons, so the stock one is incredibly lo-rez and looks pretty awful. Well after playing around with some other icons I made (not released yet), I though about what a Metro-styled Minecraft icon would looks like. So I came up with the pickaxe silhouetted in white on a grass-green background. I think it turned out pretty nice. You can get it…

I’m still around

I’m still around

I’ve been really out of it the past few months as far as motivation to work on this thing. But, here recently I’m starting to tinker with things again. Been trying my hand at writing, as usual I keep outpacing myself in what I write and come out with a continuity that looks like it’s been through a cheese grater. But I’ve enjoyed what I HAVE written. I’ve also been getting some pretty good ideas written down, and also am…

Best Nigerian Scam-Spam EVER!!

Best Nigerian Scam-Spam EVER!!

Every once in a while I go through my spam boxes to see if anything legit falls in to them. It doesn’t happen too often but I have caught it happen a few times…but I digress. I normally don’t pay the spam much attention since 75% of it is for penis pills, and another 24% is fake account notices. But once in a blue moon I come across gold. I’ve removed the names and numbers so that no one can…

Angry Neko?

Angry Neko?

There a site that parses the text on your blog to make an estimate of who you are and the style you write in. It’s called URL AI. Well it got right off that I’m a guy between 26 & 35 (I’m 33), but it said that my writing style is angry and personal. I had to laugh because I can see where it gets that idea. Hell, I have a lot of posts bitching about Firefox on here. Well…
