Yes, you should look at the original. I am only experimenting with KBFX and trying to locate a suitable theme for Xandors users. Blue Ball is made by subzero and I take no credit for any of his work. All I did was change the dude box, the hover images and a few other minor tweaks.

Hello,
Man it looks good. I am experimenting with gimp and was wondering how you get the feathered effect? If you know what about the gloss effect that we see with the newer kde 3.4 backgrounds?

Well, if we had some inkling that the author was not producing naked tits for pure pleasure, those hopes were dispelled by his submission of the large breast in your face wallpaper found above. Hee Hee. I agree we shouldn't condemn the human body, but for those who simply put clips of porn on the site as was done in his other posting, then we need to say "hold on little buddy, just make it tasteful my children are looking at linux, and here they see two huge breasts and a naked woman staring at the earth all from the same author."

More over, this isn't his wife or girlfriend. So not GPL. Why not have him submit a pretty picture of his girlfriend or wife or mom. come on, lets see all his family. Oh, that wouldn't be right? Then for all you folks who think this is artistic, lets see you or your family in similar poses. I especially would like to see your opinion when some of the perverts on the web to see your family nude to the bust. Hee Hee. Come on, if it is good for this guy, let's see his daughters and wifes. Its art Right? - Jun 30 2005
Boy, I tell you this is pretty close. I might just beleive that the artist really didn't want this to be porn. If I am wrong then I am sorry, but it looks like he hid the parts perverts desire. She is beautiful, but maybe we should be looking at his point of putting a sultry woman to represent Linux. Not sure that is what I think Linux represents. Moreover, Dominiation in the Latin sense meaning to Lord over a good ruler, then yeah, but if he means it as we know today, NOPE, not a chance. Work on bringing the two pictures together a bit more, she is a bit too big for the globe, reduce her size and merge the light so the sun reflects off her face as it does the globe. - Jun 30 2005

It is good to see your continued support of xandros. I will try to design a theme around this lastest work of art. I have a request however. I am trying to Make a red theme using Xandros base red and white colors, but I need a background that will have the xandros logo tilted back toward the horizon and the bottom comming foward. the balls making up the logo would be great if they looked like red/white glass balls or shiny metalic balls. The back ground can be any neutral color or any other idea, but I would like the logo to appear as if it were floating on its back you might say. If possible I would dedicate an entire them after you.
Thanks Eric. - Apr 28 2005

Haaaaaa Haaaaaaa.
Not too many younger folks may appreciate the title Soylent Green, but the few old kogers around here do.
Background: Soylent Green was a 70's movie about the US having a shortage of beef due to a disease I beleive, so meat was scarse. That is of coarse except if you bought your meat at Soylent Green. They would go around the neigborhoods looking for their victims and then collect them in their trash trucks, then take them to be processed for butchering and then eventual sale. "Watch what you eat, it might be me!" Hee hee.

It is a xandros icon, created and provided by xandros, but I can see if I am able to make a package with the icons on it. You will have to use gimp to remove the xandros icon or put another icon in its place. Note: as it is several png's you will have to edit them all.

I have never used blender, but will look into it. As for adding the xandros logo, I can open your jpeg / png in inkscape, then create 3d balls and place them in the logo pattern. This is not too difficult, see my karabma icon, same use of inkscape. But I would like to create 3d images in linux if possible. Main reason is I would like to creat a 3d icon size computer for My Linux icon which will rotate in karamba instead of taking 29 pictures of an actual computer in 29 different locations then edit each pic. If there were a 3d app out there that would allow me to rotate the 3d image 360 degrees and at 29 different places take a snapshot in jpeg or png then it would allow me more time to creat these icons for karamba.
Eric. - Jan 21 2005
yeah, let me know about where to get this fantastic app.
Eric - Jan 20 2005
Hey, how do you get the spheres to look so real? I have used inkscape but can't figure out how to get that glossy effect. I know lighing effects in gimp 2.0 allow some cool features but this 3d appearance is simply amazing. Let me know how to do it. Also, I like the Debian look, would you allow me to place a Xandros logo on the second ball. I will give all credit to you, but we need something like this for Xandros. Let me know. Again, it looks great
