So I got a “arty” phase.

September 1, 2009

Not much happening on the programming front I’m afraid. For now I’m facinated in finding pretty pictures and am also jobbing-on people to help find or make a new image for “Lambo”. I’m tired of my having only one image to represent my name/avatar/tag/nick online.

Here’s the current one in use.

The original I stole from some random google search.

Anything that improves, alters or is even vaguely resembling this will be accepted.

As for what set me off on this phase.

This picture really endeared itself to me.

It was the artists’ blog (http://www.jasonchanart.com) and seeing his other stuff that got me intrested. So now I’m browsing deviantart.com .

So if you know any, or happen to be, a charitable artist then I’d love to have a talk with you regarding the Lambo image. Yes, I am that cheap and demanding.

Happy days!

I finnially got around to buying a extra VGA cable and hooking up my old 17″ LCD I had lying around here, as well as the 19″ I was already using.

I’m still amazed by how simple it was to do. I was expecting to be fiddling away in the bios or something like that.

I guess over the next week or so I’ll download a few apps to customize how it functions exactly but for now I’m happy with typing this in one screen and watching my Spotify playlist trundle along in the other. My only qualm is that the second one is slightly blurred but I guess thats because the whole thing is being converted from a DVI socket on my PC through a adapter to VGA and then onto the monitor. I’ll get used to it soon though.

Got out of bed. Trundled around. Tried to wake up by pouring various things down my throat and eventually gave up that and on my health and simply ate chocolate. Brunch is fun.

Anyway just hopped on steam to see whats what and now I am completely alert. Not because I’m on steam. But because I saw this.

Its very simple, and most people will come out with pretty much the same thing, but seeing how much I got interested in this and the fact that I just spent the last 30 minutes or something doing this, it shows how clever it is for a marketing ploy. Or maybe I’m just really really stupid and easily pleased.
