Everytime I've told you about something happening with an iPhone I've been telling you and it happens a couple of months later. This is because I know someone "on the inside" ;)

If you are wondering about an iPhone 5, I can confirm that it will be here in June. I can't tell you what will be new about it but I can say that 3 prototypes were made and 1 of them had a slide out keyboard, however I doubt that would catch on. It would make it thicker and Apple are going down the thinner route on everything.

You heard it here first :)

Letter of Love

Dear Natalie, When I met you 8 months ago I didn't think I would be meeting my soulmate. It seem's destiny thought it was about time we got together.

I can't believe it's only been 8 months, it feels longer. I suppose it feels longer because I've known you and loved you my whole life, I just had to find you. Finding you wasn't easy though and I had to experience heartbreak along the way but I now know that the love I thought I've felt and the broken hearts, were all just preparing me for finding you. I've not truly been in love until now. It's as though my heart was being warmed up for true love and the heartache was to help make me stronger. Now that I have found you I can't imagine my life without you.

I don't want to imagine my life without you, it would be like losing part of my soul. Even now when I am not with you are on my mind. There isn't a time in the day your not. The feeling of being with you is something that nothing could replace. You make me feel loved and special. I hope I make you feel the same way.

I know I'm not perfect and I may not be able to give you the world but I can give you my world. You said that I am your one, your my one and my only. I love you Natalie x

I hearby make a promise to anyone reading this that I will never lie, cheat on or hurt this girl. She may give me the uncontrolable urge to kill every now and again but she is mine lol I can hear a lot reaching for the sick buckets :D

Puppy Help

A couple of months ago I got myself a puppy. She has just turned 6 months old. Unlike most other puppies her age, she is massive. To be expected with a Scottish Deerhound though :p

She has this annoying habit of deciding to bug the shit out of you. She starts by trying to grab your arms, legs or ears with her mouth. If you pull away she then smacks you with her stupidly large paws and then starts barking at you. She has realised we can hide our arms from getting chewed (she still goes for your ears though) and has now started using her front teeth to nip at you. It's all gentle and playful but she is a very large dog and she can catch you sometimes just enough to hurt.

I've been told to ignore her barking and chewing as she is just wanting attention but when you have a 3ft puppy, who thinks she is a lap dog, bearing down on you, it's pretty hard to ignore. Puppies barking and wanting to play is totally normal but does anyone know a way to make her stop without hitting her? I need some good training techniques. I've had dogs all my life but never had a puppy so my dog knowledge seems as useless as stephen hawkings playing twister :(

Any advice is mucho appreciated :D

The day I have not been looking forward too has arrived. The 30th is my last day as GM. As from the 1st I will be walking amongst the community as 'mrrste not ^mrrste.

It has been an awesome 2 years and I hope I have served you all well. I brought interviews from software creators and skinners, ran competitions, had the honour to DD many many pieces of outstanding work, had some new categories added and got to interact with the community alot more. It's been an awesome 2 years.

What's sad is that I know I could have done a lot more. However, I'm kinda glad I can look back and say this because it means you have all been awesome that I never wanted to stop giving you more :)

I won't stop doing what I do and contributing to DA, it will hopefully mean I actually get to produce more work and do what I do best ;)

I want to thank EVERYONE in the Community Relations team, more so Moonbeam13 for giving me the opportunity to be GM and for her constant support. JesseLax for just being him, FallenRox for just being her. Ikue, OtisBee and AndrewDBarker need my special thanks. ALL of my watchers and supporters to do. I could be here for ever naming names but I honestly mean EVERYONE :thumbsup:

In exactly 18 days, on the 30th June, I will no longer be Gallery Moderator of Skins and Themes.

The 30th June will make it my 2nd and final year as your GM. I feel as though I have achieved a lot and hopefully you have found me a great benefit to the section and the community. I won't lie, it saddens me that I have to pass the torch along. I knew my position was not permanent but when you love something, you don't exactly want to give it up ;)

However, I know leaving is not such a bad thing for me to do. It will give someone the opportunity to bring something new and exciting to the community, new ideas, new relationships etc. That's never a bad thing :-)

I won't be leaving DA and I will still continue to do what I love. I'll just be suggetting DD's instead of awarding them, maybe even recieving them :giggle: Of course I will be saying my proper "good-byes" nearer the time but thought I'd give u a little heads up ;)

Wake Up Christians

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 14, 2010, 9:36 PM

Read Damnit!

Let me give you a quick run down of my day today. I woke up in a nice warm comfy bed, leaned over to switch my TV and DVD player off that I fell asleep watching then grabbed my iPhone to check for messages and missed calls. I had about 5 missed calls and 2 kinky messages from my g/f ;-). I got up, washed, dressed, then went down for breakfast with my parents. I sat watching TV eating my fav cereal while engaging in the usual chats with my mam and dad.

An hour or so later I got into my 4x4 with my mam and went shopping for a shirt and tie for my cousins wedding. While out I spoke with my friends and my g/f on the phone. After running a few more errands I eventually came home with a starbucks coffee. I grabbed my cigarettes and retreated to my computer to check out DA, facebook, work on a skin etc etc. 2 Hours later I went to my g/f's house to go late night shopping for the shirt I couldn't find. We finished the night off with a macdonalds and usual b'f/g'f stuff *wink wink*. I came home, fired up the xbox 360 and just chilled till bed time.

Eventful day? pretty standard stuff really, nothing out of the ordinary. Why did I draw attention to some of my possessions? ie big car, iPhone, xbox etc? Why the story? that will become apparant soon ;-)

Christians and Catholics want to go to heaven. They believe in the idea of heaven and God so much that they shape and live their lives to ensure entrance to this eternal sanctuary. The idea of a heaven is really appealing, afterall, who wants to die or think death is the end? The thing is, I can't get excited about heaven. In fact it worries me. No Christian can tell you what happens the day after you die or what to expect in heaven yet they shape and live their lives to ensure entrance. So, if your a Christian and you believe in God and heaven, I want you to answer these really simple questions for me. If you can't answer these questions then I see no reason for anyone to embrace heaven, especially you.

Let's say someone dies in an accident and they go to heaven. How long is it before they stop feeling the pain of missing and wanting to be back with their loved ones? What will they be doing to pass the time? Will they have friends, the ability to socialise? Laugh and tell jokes? Can they watch something on a DVD player, play an xbox, use an iPhone, drive a big car? How about eat their fav food? Can they find love? Can they have a day like mine?

Think of your daily life and everything it encapsulates. Think of your loved ones, your possessions, your social life, your good times and the bad. Now think of leaving your loved ones, possessions, social life and daily life behind. Replace it with........... exactly! There is no replacement. This is why I feel sorry for Christians. They make sure they do everything to get to their God and heaven that they are missing life. A life worshipping something for your life, living to rules to make sure you have a nice afterlife is wasting what you have now. You have no real life if your living it to die. No doubt I will have angered some Christians. Vent your anger, tell me on your computer how I've angered you. Engage with others around the world in this journal about it. Maybe just ignore it and browse the web but before you do ask yourself, could I do what I'm about to do in heaven?

Prejudice against people with mental health issues seems to sadly be increasing. While attitudes towards sexuality, ethnicity etc are improving, people with mental health problems are finding the stigma harder to overcome.

From the age of 15 I have had anxiety issues which have changed as I have got older. When I was 15 I attended a special centre for children with mental health difficulties ie OCD, Anorexia etc. I stayed there 5 nights a week and came home on weekends and I did this for 6 months. My parents and I decided that if I wanted the best help and fast, this was the best option. Eventually it got hard being away from home so much so I decided to just attend it daily and did so for a further year. Eventually I was back to being me and I returned to school but opted to drop back a year to catch up. Luckily I knew a lot of people in the year below me and I have to say that it was the best decision I ever made. I made better friends, got better grades and loved every minute of it. I still had some issues but I wouldn't let them stop me.


I left school at 18 and not long after I did my problems came back in a different form and I didn't like leaving the house. My existing anxiety issues turned into Agoraphobia. This time medication was used and after 6 months of hard work I managed to go out again, even getting myself a job and a realtionship. However, I was not totally "cured" but I had to make this work. For 3 years I maintained a "normal" life and a relationship but I was still limited to what I could do. In 2001 I got glandular fever and was off work for 6 months. It really knocked the crap out of me and on top of that, my medication had ran it's course and the benefits of it were almost non existant. I had to give up my Job and my relationship ended not long after, our feelings just changed for each other.

It is now 2010 and I am still trying to get off the medication that stopped working 8 years ago. I've had to gradually decrease my dosage but it turns out the tablets are actually addictive even though they were not supposed to be. Coming off it has also kicked started some OCD. How typical I get prescribed it lol Luckily they don't prescribe it anymore and it's always in the press and people have managed to sue. ANYWAY, being out of work for 8 years give me a lot of time to spare while trying to get myself sorted out. It was during this time I got into customization and here I am today. If it wasn't for my problems I don't think I would even know about deviantart, be where I am or have met all the people I have.

It's took me 8 years but I have a social life again, have just fallen in love and preparing the final steps I need to be finally happy. I will always have some issues, I will never be 100% "normal" and no doubt I will always be on some form of medication (hopefully not). NEVER discriminate against someone with mental health issues or under estimate them. There are people far worse than me that have achieved greater. Before you discriminate against someone, try living a life of trying to have a life. People with mental health issues have/had enough problems to overcome without some people in society being ignorant and bigoted. It's not all about what you achieve in life but about what you overcome. To me that say's more about someones character and abilities.

This wasn't the easiest thing to share with you and I'm not looking for sympathy. What I am looking for is people not being afriad to stand up and say "I have mental health issues, I'm not ashamed. If you have a problem with that, you have greater issues than me".

......of XP? I'm trying to figure out if it is really worth me making skins for XP anymore, well, adding a substyle anyway.

When it was XP and Vista it was fine. Usually I created my skin as an XP skin then added a substyle and added the extras for Vista but now we have Windows 7. It would mean creating the XP skin, adding a substyle for vista and then adding a substyle from Vista to do 7 stuff. Skinning for 3 Operating Systems, each with different layouts is quite a long task.

Has 7 been so big a hit that most who didn't bother with Vista and stayed on XP, now went too 7? Themes I create will work on XP but they won't be specifically made and everything might not be skinned. XP was bound to fade out sooner or later but how many people still use it? :confused:

Homosexuality

Read Damnit!

Flicking through my TV I come to the religious channels. Usually I like to have a peek when nothing else is on because they amuse the hell out of me. This time they were more deluded than ever. 8 of the 15 channels were going on about homosexuality and how wrong it is, how it's a sin and how they need to be saved.

"What is this homosexuality of which you speak Stephen?" Homosexuality is the simple attraction to the same sex. I am hetrosexual because I find women sexually stimulating. I did not choose to be hetro I just am. I can't make myself be sexually stimulated by another man. The thing is, no-one can choose what they are sexually stimulated by. There are countless numbers of men who find obese women sexy, I can't and I can't choose to either. This is simply how is works, you either do or you don't.

Hearing the misguided ramblings saying that homosexuality is a choice is just deluded. Animals can be homosexual and we all know they are not self aware or able to make concious decisions. They are also not aware of sexuality. Animals go on sheer instinct. Do animals choose to be homosexual? course they don't. If you said yes then your retard hat is on too tight. So the logical conclusion must be that homosexuality is something that is just "there", like a default, and someone is more geared up to go that way.

Do we need to know why some people are homosexual while others aren't? course not. It effects and changes nothing anymore than knowing why some people like obese people. Is homosexuality a sin? course not. It's only a sin if your religious and being religious is not the default position of anyone. We are all born irrelligious until indoctrinated. Until you become religious, nothing is a sin so choosing what you believe is a sin does not make something a sin. Jog on!

I'm 29 and live in a world that is reaching out to the universe, trying to discover who we are, where we came from and where we are going. Importantly, we are trying to find out if we are alone. We really have to stop looking for other life right now. Why? I don't want to be discovering some advanced civilization, chances are they will be because we are a young species, for them to look at us as a race who fights over who's junk reacts to who.

You mentioned marriage? ah yes, the man made tradition of showing and telling someone you love them in the ultimate way. Sadly we seem to like telling people who can and can't tell someone they love them. Homosexuality does not erode the sanctity of marriage because homosexuals marrying effects absolutely no-one or their marriage. Hetrosexuals erode the sanctity of marriage. Compare divorce rates against civil partnerships ending. More people get divorced. Let homsexuals get married if you want to maintain the sanctity of marriage :roll:

The fact we even debate homosexuality and what rights homosexuals should have is retarded. How about you mind your own damn business, hump who you want and not worry about who is humping who, be happy your not the one going to hell :roll: and get on with your own lives.

Breathe stephen, breathe :D

Well not quite :p

I stopped doing mac ports to concentrate on my own designs but I'm feeling a little nostalgic so I've decided to come out of "retirement" do a couple more for old times sake. I have got permission to bring 2 mac themes over to windows. Expect Nico Mini Powder and Argon :dance:

I will be submitting my theme I asked if I should release or not, tomorrow. The mac themes should also be posted sometime this week ;-)

Oh and I will be picking up my new iPhone tomorrow cause you persuaded me :D I've went for the white one cause it looks a bit more funky!

:note:The Contest:note:



news.deviantart.com/article/81… Deviants had to create either a working theme or a mockup of whole new Windows Operating System. The choice was too make the new Windows 7 into what you think it should have looked like or what a new Windows would look like, Codename Windows Deviant8.


30 brilliant entries were submitted but the best part was that not every body that entered was an actual themer/skinner. This is exactly what I hoped for :-).


:rzero:The Judges:rzero:




I selected 11 judges, yes that's right, 11 judges :mwahaha: I chose 11 because I wanted a true varied opinion from people of different artistic platforms but who were fully experienced in what they were judging. The judges were:

:trophy:The Winners:trophy:




There was simply so many amazing entries to choose from that getting it down to just 3 was not an easy task. The votes are all in and I am happy to announce the winners of the Windows Deviant8 Contest.

In 1st place is Windows Dev 8
Windows Dev 8 by Jaziel
by Jaziel :winner:

Jaziel wins $50 deviant dollars and a 1 years subscription to Deviantart


In 2nd place is Gaia 2009

imrik wins $25 deviant dollars and a 6 months subscription to Deviantart


In 3rd place is Mockup- Windows 8
:thumb125487508:
by mr-bonheur

mr-bonheur wins a 3 months subscription to Deviantart


As part of the 1st place prize I promised that I would turn the winners entry into a working theme, if possible. Sadly the layout of Jaziel's theme is not 100% possible due to Windows restrictions. However, I will work my magic and try to bring the overall concept to life ;-)


Final Thoughts



I have to say that I would love to be able to use just about every entry there was. The designs were amazing so I don't want anyone to feel like a loser because there all made of win. A big thank you to the judges but an even bigger thanks to all those who entered. I hope to see you getting some of the designs working for everyone to enjoy :-)
I have finally dragged myself away from the television after seeing and hearing something I could never have been prepared for. Michael Jackson, my idol and my inspiration has "died".

I find it hard to say that he has "died" because I don't want to acknowledge it but more so because it sounds so final. I am by no means a religious person, maybe even anti-religious, but I felt a loss today that I could only describe that I felt to my soul.

Never before has 1 man reached so many with his music. He conquered racial barriers that politicians and activists have been trying to do for years. He set the standard for music and raised the bar to a level that ALL artists could only dream of achieving. He transformed dance and transcended above just being another dancer and choregrapher and became dance itself.

The most famous man on the planet has not died. He has left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten, music that will never age, videos that will never grow tiresome, dance moves people will still try to copy and an inspiration that will continue to bring new artists to the stage. The genius that was Michael Jackson will never die.

I may never see the likes of another Michael Jackson in my lifetime but I am honoured to be able to say that I witnessed the best there was, the best there is and the best there will ever be.

Windows Deviant8 :fella:



Windows 7 is just around the corner. Compare Vista to XP and you have a totally different and better looking operating system. Now, compare Windows Vista to Windows 7 and your pretty well much looking at the same thing. It's time to upgrade to Windows Deviant8!

Windows Deviant8 is what 7 SHOULD have looked like or even what a newer Windows WOULD look like. It is down to YOU to create it.  

The Contest



It's very simple......or is it? :mwahaha: You have to create a brand new Windows interface.

You can either create a working Windowblind / Visual Style OR create a  mockup in your graphics program. That's right, you don't have to actually create a skin for this so you don't have to be a skinner or themer. That is not to say you can't ever use your mockup. What do I mean? Read on ;-)

You wanted to know how you could still use it? I shall turn the winning design into a working skin, if you are not a skinner/themer and it is not already a working skin :omg: This part of the prize is purely dependent on if your mockup is actually do-able within the limits of a windowblind / visual style. I can't quite code a whole new operating system yet lol.

Rules



:bulletgreen: Contest runs from today, 27th May until 27th June. Winners will be announced on the 1st July.

DO's

:bulletgreen: Create a working skin OR mockup.

:bulletgreen: You can enter as many times as you wish.

:bulletgreen: All submissions MUST be posted in Contests > 2009 > Windows Deviant8 www.deviantart.com/#catpath=co…

DONT's

:bulletred: Post you submission in any other section other than the one stated above. All entries must be in the one section so it can be seen and classed as an entry ;-)

:bulletred: Use stock images without crediting the original creator.

:bulletred: Send any bribes without special delivery :lol:


Prizes :trophy:




:bulletblue: 1st Prize: $50 deviant dollars. 1 years subscription to deviantart and your design turned into a working theme by me (conditions stated above).

:bulletblue: 2nd Prize: $25 deviant dollars and a 6 months subscription to deviantart.

:bulletblue: 3rd Prize: 3 months subscription to deviantart


Now all is left is for you to open up your graphics programs and get designing the operating system of your dreams :dance:

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

GM for a Year. WOOT!

Remember when I asked for suggestions for sections to be added to skins and themes? well, since then things have changed. There are new apps and now unused ones. This is where I need your help ;-)

I will be throwing together a mock of the section with new categories added, unused ones removed and some move arounds. I need you guys to give me suggestions on what categories you would like to see added. I must stress that there is no timetable for this happening, this is all me but I want to be ready for when it does ;-)

So far I can think of a few that is needed:

Docks in Mac Utilities For Docklets
iPhone in Cell Phone Themes For iPhone Skins and Icons
CAD in Media Players For everything CAD
Winamp Fan Skins in Media Players For generic classic winamp skins created using pictures
Windows 7 Visual Styles
Launchy
Google Chrome

I know for a fact I've missed some so tell me what you think needs added and then I can create the final mock up for your opinions ;-) WEEEEEEEEEEEEE

After exactly 1 whole month, I have finally finished my Star Wars Storm Trooper skin :dance:

The XP version has the animations for deleting, copying etc that I never usually do and the Vista version looks better :p . I have to say that it is possibly my most useable skin I've created. Now all I have to do is create a preview for it and get it posted. Once that is done, it's on to doing a Darth Vader skin :-)

Only splintered13, Ikue and JesseLax have seen the basics of it and they really liked it so I'm hoping you all will too. manicho is making a matching wall and JesseLax might be too. Get ya ass online Jesse :-(

And OMG, Michael Jackson is performing 10 concerts here in the UK on the 8th July in London. You better friggin believe I'm getting tickets. Yes I like Michael Jackson so kiss my swingers :p
