Enjoy those days off.....you might want to add a few TUMS to that desk of yours!!
LOL!!! Tums are good to hae on hand
Computer software just crashed again so I can post for a few minutes
I talked to Alison last night, she is doing OK, she misses us BIG TIME
Two more words:
Mine arrived today!!!!!
I FIGURED IT OUT, I FIGURED IT OUT!!!
My favorite graphics program to use is Corel Photopaint b/c that's what I learned on originally. The problem is that I could never figure out how to make lightsabers look good with it b/c the glow just never came out right. I tried adapting the photoshop method, to no avail.
This morning I was giving Jared crap about the saber's glow that he posted on his site, and he mentioned that it was the PSP (paintshop pro) method. So I found the tutorial for that since I got a free copy w/ my computer, and decided to test it out. Well PSP and Photoshop have a few things in common and after playing around with that tutorial, I figured out how to get the sabers glow to "glow" in Photopaint!
Yeah, most of you don't care, but this has caused me MUCH frustration in the past b/c I'm always saying how photopaint can do anything photoshop can if you just know how to use it.
Now I can make sweet lightsabers in my favorite graphics program
The family room is now officially painted
Colorado Clay on 2 walls and Burnt Sienna on the others.....YaaaaaHOOOOOOOOOOO.
.......now for the rest of the house.....
I won 2 tickets to see Seal at the Farmount on Nov. 24 and his new CD on the radio today
Yay for me!!!!
now only 17,020 more to catch zoo!
Good luck Yeah Mel!! I liked Seals last two albums, or first two? I dont' know how many he's made.
It's 4PM I'm happy about that.
I've located some knurled thumbscrews for my belt boxes online. Now, if I can only find them locally...
If I knew what a knurled thumb screw was I would be happy to look for one.
Well, struck out on the thumbscrews tonight...
but my Vader F/X saber was waitin' fer me when I got home.
After scavenging batteries from my remotes, I now have the toy that would have completed my childhood. This thing rocks!!!!!!!
It even makes the sounds for me, so now I don't have to....
...although I still do anyway.
//being sooooooo thankful that I cannot hear SS's sound effects//
The good news is that my new kitchen ceiling ROCKS.............thanks DH!
SS, stop looking for those knurled thumb screws, they are not to be found around here. I even went to suppliers for stores, you know a $1,000 min. order , no go. They don't even have them. Talk to DH, he can tell you the closest things he found.
BUT, if you do can we be your first phone call? Jeff needs them too
I shall NEVER give up...NEVER surrender!!!!
Kim, the knurled thumbscrews are actually very popular with the computer mod crowd. I've found some thumbscrews locally at computer shops, but so far, the all have the actual screw notches(phillips/regular) in the head. I've found 'em online, but they're way pricey ($2.00 each screw plus shipping), and I don't think they'd be delivered in time.
I know!!! we are looking for ones w/ no, regular, phillips or allen type notches on the top. About 1/4 inch high, maybe that big around, steel so he can powdercoat them.
Keep me updated, I got burnt out
I happy that Mel is going to let me make her robe
The official diameter of the thumbscrews that I've been looking for are 12mm. (approx. 1/2").
I am happy that Kim is going to make my robe as well
I'm happy I was able to drag my happy butt out of bed this morning
I;m happy I've had your help all week And that you got your butt out of bed, did the rest of the body follow? I have seemed to left my brain at home, nothing new for me but I could have used it today
My pups are happy they got new beds today (early Xmas present) .......bad backs you know
I'm happy I was able to sneak away from work for a couple minutes here and there today so I could get a couple of posts in!
OOOO!!! And I'm also happy that I can go home now!
