DeviantArtist QuestionnaireHow long have you been on DeviantArt?
11 years What does your username mean?
It's a combination of my first and last name with a slight error.
Actually for deviantart I tried to create a new username, so I thought I try a combination.
My first name is Chris and my last name is Wouters, so that would be chrwou, but I wrote chiwou and thought "hey, that's sounds cool"
After I entered a submitted the form with the username, I thought "damn, my name isn't Chis" :-D, but it was already too late.
Describe yourself in three words.
hairy, arrogant and a wise guy
Are you left or right handed?
right handedWhat was your first deviation?
A photo manip of a photo I found online, not cool, didn't credit the photographer, removed a long time ago :-PWhat is your favourite type of art to create?
Digital painting, I'm not good at it, but I like it
And GUI mockupsIf you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Traditional paintingWhat wa
(Mac)(Tut) Calendar Dock Icon //updateI got into quite a problem when I tried to change the dock icon for the calendar, since it displays also the actual date, and that overlays
also on every icon.
So after you replaced the necessary icns in the app also delete the Calendar.docktilepluginfolder and put the app back to the dock, you'll notice the date overlay is gone.
After you start the app the overlay is back, but only for a few seconds. Don't know why, but it works, the only problem is, the activity indicator just shows for a brief moment. Don't worry the app stays open, but the dock doesn't show an activity indicator.
If you can live with that, go ahead
But don't forget to make a backup. And don't blame me if you didn't make one , but if necessary you can ask me for a copy
today it didn't work anymore, as long the app is closed the overlay won't show, but when it's open the overlay is back. Yesterday it worked
My impressions of Win8Hi, just installed Win8.1 on a virtual PC and took it for a test drive...
OMG is that a bad OS, I mean it's really bad, it's not intuitive, the touch based start screen is confusing, searched for 10 min to get back to the default screen
and it's not pretty, I think it's a step backwards in comparison to Win7.
And the usability is non existing, from the browsing in the explorer or to find settings to change options. And I hope that Microsoft won't make the mistake to use this for the whole future of Windows. They should use their manpower to improve the kernel and file system and not some stupid tablet mode I don't need on my desktop PC.
Mmmh, I'm glad I switched to Linux on my Notebook, but until Adobe PS, AI (or an alternative) and the gaming industry won't recognized Linux as a real alternative to Windows, I keep my Win7 on the desktop PC
At least more and more Games are being ported to Linux or MacOSX, but Gimp or Inkscape are no real alternatives, and Sketch seems like a grea
as you can see I didn't submit or commented for a while, the lack of activity is the result from a depression, I currently suffer.
It's been almost two years and now I'm getting treatment and hope I get the energy and motivation to create some new stuff.
ATM I'm not very happy with the new OS's, the customization gets more difficult, even the usability is back to the early 80's. Currently I make myself familiar with Linux, especially Arch and I love it, it's fast, but very complex And I hope Adobe etc. finally see, what a huge market they would fill with versions for Linux, a lot of people switch to Ubuntu etc, it's easy to set up and even easier to use.
That's why I want to concentrate on Android and Linux, the possibilities are endless and I've a lot of fun with my smartphone and laptop
and have a nice weekend
[MacType] New font smoother for windowsHeya folks,
I don't know about you, but I was always sick of the default windows font rendering, that's why I used GDI++ with Windows XP and GDIpp with Win7, until a few months ago GDIpp worked great, but then there where a lot of compatibility issues (Google Chrome/Firefox).
Now I found this http://www.mediafire.com/?8cnc6v7z7w4e647 on a chinese board http://bbs.themex.net/forumdisplay.php?f=88 (yeah yeah yeah, at least with google translate I could read something )
Works awesome and you can switch language, still a pretty shitty translation, but great tools to create configs and it runs as a service.
Check it out

PS: Still hoping for Dribbble invitation
Who can spare an invitation for Dribbble.comHi there!
Has anyone a Dribbble invitation for me?
If yes, please leave a note.
What's new? Absolutely nothing...
Wait, found a two year old cookie...

well I did, was still good
Take care and Ladies, always shave the back of your knee
Music, and why I love the Internetmost of the time, I listen to Metal/Hard Rock
but I've a fable for the 80s and at work I can't listen to Metal, my colleagues would kill me so I listen 80s music (thanks to Last.fm) and most of the time I know the songs, but I couldn't name them, but today I even started to dance and since it's not a very complex song, it was easy to find.
And a few minutes ago I googled for "Maria Magdalena" and now I've a huge queue of songs, gotta love YouTube
A journey through the Internet
Take care and don't forget the matching poll
PS: and that's why "Vice City" is the best GTA ever
Some peopleNormally I don't do something like this, most people delete "their" stuff, if someone "point out" that its stolen or ripped off, but this guy is... is... well I can't find the right words
this is the deviation by landscapepic
You can actually see the original signature on the pic
and this was his note:
hi! can you give me the link to the "original tree"?i will delete if i found it similar to my version.
My response was (well yeah a little rude):
F*CK are you for real
"your version" is the one from the Desktopography exhibition 3 by pete-aeiko and the original is from detail24
people like you really piss me off
you can actually see the signature on "your version"
bold and stupid, great combination
So spread the love
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
