A Flash Friend

Post by iUnify »

http://www.turtleshell.com This is a little website I always check back on...going on 10 years now... and it's not updated very often. Anyways, in 2000 it was a pretty nice flash site. Nowadays you can still find some pretty cool stuff there... sometimes.

http://www.3planesoft.com T These are some very cool screen-savers. If you know screen-savers that are cooler than this I expect you'll post them here because I am of the understanding these are the best! ;)

http://www.desktopography.net This was supposed to be my secret weapon for when "The War Of The Wallpapers" popped off and everyone was scrambling for the coolest wallpapers to use for their RM Wallpaper Backgrounds... BUT I figured I would set an example (read down) and post it anyway as a sign of good faith. I hope to see some of these amazing digital images used in Desktop Screen-shots all around the RM Forums as I presume most have yet to experience the true magnificence that is Desktopography.

OK, that is all I have for you tonight. I don't know if my rapid postings on the less-visited areas of this forum have either gone mostly unnoticed, they are a quite the guilty pleasure around here or I'm just thinking way too far into this... ;)

Honestly though, I would really like to see people post more on the "less-charted" areas of the forum. This page, for instance, can be a very cool stop once or twice a day if multiple people posted the cool things they have come across in their ventures across the Internet. There is so much out there that if a 100 people spent their entire lives surfing the net they would only see 1% of what is actually out there to be seen-- so it's common sense that there will be a lot off cool stuff no one would ever come across if it were not for people posting cool finds they've come across.

You know, I have never been a member of a forum before this one. Call me weird, call me old-school but the only use I'd ever gotten from a forum was the occasional reference to see what someone had to say if I was searching for the answer to a question... I can remember the first day I tried actually asking a question-- I was so pissed off that there were no forums you didn't actually have to join to talk on. Now I know that places like that rarely exist and it's simply expected but boy, I was just used to doing things differently before the major changes occurred in the vicinity of 2002-2009. A LOT changed... :lol: I had to learn a lot of stuff over. Dreamweaver wasn't even the same program. Paint Shop Pro was like Photoshop (to me at the time) and BOTH were owned by different companies (the great monopoly!)

...Whoa how the hell did I end up here??? I've gotten severely off-topic, my apologies.

So the day's lesson: Don't be afraid, be a friend- post a message. I hope to hear from you guys and see some cool new stuff up on the forums. BTW is cursing frowned upon here? I know it is in most places (I am not such a forum-prude as I once was!) and I don't want to disrespect or upset any people. I have held back more than once from a swear word because of just that. Guess it was time I just put it out there and asked.

Post, post, post, POST!
:D

Electric Sheep--Probably the most awesome screensaver I have ever seen. Sample

And my favorite wallpaper site is apparently dead. :cry:

Good stuff- looks like AVS- I use those when I listen to music sometimes- like if I am not @ the PC but playing music from it.... every now and then I throw one up as the desktop background too- it's kinda cool when you are listening to music and you go to the desktop and have that crazy stuff going to the music. :D

As 4scrape has been put to death (broken down and the creator didn't feel like take an whole load of unwanted work), my wallpaper-heaven is gone. So I can't offer much on that.

I can however offer a link to the shell-replacement bbLean. Great alternative to other boring shells.


I don't got much else really... Unless you like anime. But if you do, you've probable already heard of CrunchyRoll.
I don't think, therefore I'm not.

Any place to find some of these 5scrape wallpapers? Sounds pretty good. DevArt has some good ones. I love the Desktopography- what did you guys think of that?

...damn I wish I could remember this other site for wallpaper... can't. I do wish I'd heard of it before now so I could have checked some of the work on it out.

But I meant this thread to be for ANYTHING you guys think is worth checking out. It doesn't have to be customization... maybe it's a video game or a website with great feeds or forums, whatever it is... I will tell you this, I have a GREAT site for little known applications but it's on my external drive- which I am sorting through again to delete shit I just saved because I was excited I had so much space =) ... So when I find it I'll post that. Well organized too.

But I would like to just find cool new stuff I don't know about. That's what I was hoping people would post.

I am sure everyone knows about Cooliris. I like that. :)

Sweet thanks man. Has some nice picture... but they don't have many sizes to choose from. I like to get 1900 x 1200 and sometimes 2650.

Hmm... none for my laptop size either. It's always something isn't it? Well, hopefully someone else finds some stuff from this and gets a good use out of it.

I am going to keep looking around. Thanks a lot! :D

You could download the .torrent that has ALL the images that 4scrape stored.
http://nik.bot.nu/4scrape/

Take note though, that torrent contains images that's NSFW. It's also 214GB big.

But... Really. You could go to 4chan and go to the /wg/ section. And take note: This is frekking 4chan! YOU ARE NO WHERE NEAR SAFE!

Chewtoy: Thanks a lot for the info! This is really cool of you. If these wallpapers are anything like what I have heard than I am in for a treat!

So, I have a 1tb external drive and a 500gb external drive and a 350gb Laptop HD but... no way in hell am I downloading a 240gb file. But you can bet your ass I am downloading each and every one of those 240gb's 1 6.5gb file at a time! I am sure there will be 70 percent crap I don't like but I am happy with 30% very cool wallpapers.

It's funny, says the Temp Server is Off-line... but than the torrent is DLing at 1.3 mb/sec. Who knows.

But now, I have to ask... I am at the other site... no snooping yet though- why do you say that "it's 4scrape, you are NO WHERE NEAR SAFE?"

All in caps too, AND underlined... virus'? Too many really good wallpapers? Porn popups? I am not sure what you mean!!?? :shock:

Anyways, thanks for the info!
