WindowBlinds

EDIT: I regret to announce that I had to remove my Vista theme; it apparently started corrupting some files. I don't know if it was WindowsBlinds or the actual theme itself, though. Oh well, after a few days with the theme I didn't notice the look anymore.

Hey, this is absolutely incredible. Today, I found out about a program called WindowsBlinds. It's a great tool you can use to apply themes (and make custom themes) for your computer. So after installing it, I found this theme that looks like Vista! Obviously, it's not Vista itself, it was home made to look like it. It's just like any theme that you could normally install on your computer. It's really cool; I've always liked the look of Vista, but of course my parents were like "You don't need Vista", so now I can at least have something that looks like it. Here's a video of my computer with its new theme:

I'm really excited. I just hope I don't have to pay for the full version of something for me to keep it.

And of course, that's not the only theme. There's probably tens of thousands of others.

GIMP 2.4

Hey, good news, there's a new version of GIMP! They're up to version 2.4 now. Here are the release notes. It looks sweet! I can wait to download that.

Impossible Triangle

I'm sure most of you guys have seen the impossible triangle illusion, but have any of you seen it made into a papercraft? Yeah, this is the first papercraft I've made by myself, and I think it turned out pretty well! I'm not a pro, of course, so there are some small problems, but in the end, it's really cool.

Newest Papercrafts

Here are some of my latest papercrafts:



Super Mario Bros. End (found here), Shadow the Hedgehog (found here)



Rubik's Cube (I don't know where I found it). It actually twists! It just gets stuck a lot.



Paper Boomerang (found here)



Paper calender (found here)



Space Invaders enemies and Galaga sprites (both found here, bottom of page)



Here's my whole collection. I told you the Master Sword would look awesome right there!

The Sand Game

A lot of you I'm sure have played the Sand Game, but I've found a site that has 9 different versions of the sand game, my favorite being the Pyro Sand Game. Yeah, I could play that for hours at a time. I just thought I'd post about it.
