...I Know better than you (II)...

Wallpaper Other by tihkal 26 comments

One would hope that we have learned the effect of zealotry on those that said zeal is aimed towards. People tend to recoil from it, because it is, in fact, subtly abusive to have something screamed into your face. A message of "You're wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong!!! You're gonna BURN IN HELL!!!" just ain't gonna cut it, post-age-of-reason.

There is a reason that a very recent Zogby Poll showed that religious fundimentalists are the second-most unpopular group of people in the US, after prostitutes. It is situations like this, situations that spring from zealotry and immoderation.

People might want to remember that zealotry and immoderation just happen to be really great tools for manipulation on the part of those who want to control you, through your religious beliefs. - Dec 16 2003

Tim's constant recycling of images creates great suspicions in me, regarding his overall honesty and how it relates to his fan base and the download numbers.

I detect false witness. But that's ok, I guess. These days, superior morality seems to trump good ethics. Or so the superior moralists would have you believe. - Dec 13 2003

All I see here is ego, and someone getting his friends to respond to his spammish postings.

So young. So foolish. So full of himself. So sadly unashamed.

Its all about Tim. - Dec 12 2003

I have had these as my icons for quite a while now. They are quite stunning, in their simplicity. Thank you very much for this icon set. They were/are exactly what I wanted in an icon set. - Dec 06 2003

I live close to East Stroudsburg, PA. That was where Frank lived, when he was alive, and where the Frazetta Museum still operates. It's a pretty cool place, and his family still runs it. Real nice folks. - Nov 21 2003

There are windows cursors out there by a gentleman named Alex Maur that are some of the best cursor designs on the planet. Someone should see if he wants to have them ported.

Damn, son, you are doing some of the most original icon work out there! Sure do wish you would either codify them into a theme for KDE or associate yourself with some person who has the chops to so so.

I love 'em, pal. Keep it up. - Jun 12 2002

I just wanna say that I have been shouting your praises to any and all, regarding your work of late. When you offer something, here, I don't even think about it, I just reflexively DL it.

Might I make a suggestion? Dial 1-800-BubbaInSnoTown and hip Gary to what you have been up to?

Don't make me tell you this stuff again: I have an SSR +12 and I'm not afraid to use it! ='D

Well, I have 3 running on Mandrake 8.1.5(Don't ask...;')and it had qtrc in the .qt directory. I tried making the file, and that didn't work. I then addred the lines to the qtrc file that pre-existed and it *kinda* worked, as the menus in IceWM are nicely translucent, but as for the rest?

Not yet, in any case.

I will entertain any and all ideas. Appreciate them, even...

Ok, tough guy, you think yer' so smart, two questions;'):

1. Is there a file that one can create to make the kicker(Kickers in my case...) transparent? If so, spill da' goods!

2. What do the other 3 options do? Howza bout a thumbnail sketch of what THOSE commands would do to spiff up my 3 desktop? (Gotta love Mandrake Contribs!)

Please note: 3 has a few minor bugs that I have found, but nothing that has cause core meltdown, falling hair, dropsy or conspiracy to commit mopery. It's really damn good, here.

And AmiBug's Icons look GREAT with the Alpha blend! They just need more Boing Balls...;')
