I joined WC around two months ago, as of now: June 8,, 2008.

After finding my way into the forums and exploring it, I found it helpful and fun, and I soon started adapting to it, reading posts, writing posts, etc.

Something I noticed very late, probably around in early May, was karma. Zubaz seemed to beat the others to it, having 112 karma points now. Many other helpful and kind users also had high amounts of karma, and they still do, and I sought an answer to my never-resting question...

See, I've been using the GIMP for a long time now, and I've gotten quite used to it, too. I always wanted to make wallpapers, and though I'm not good at doing that, it's a whole lot better than what I used to make a year ago. [Hint: crap]

What I want to do now is make a simple yet fancy wallpaper for the upcoming version of Firefox. It's my fave browser, and I've got plenty of ideas, but I wanted to ask one thing:

Can I use the official Firefox logo? I mean all the other stuff will be ...

I've tried to insert pictures in my posts before I publish them, but every time Window Live Writer displays a window saying that the pictures could not be uploaded because the weblog doesn't support it.

What gives? I've seen many images in posts from people I know that use Live Writer. Can anyone help?

Do I have to do something extra that'd allow me to insert picture and be able to post them?

Fans of Internet Explorer 7 and Opera, bow down to the Browser Goddess, Firefox 3!

Earlier this week, the first release candidate of the much improved Firefox 3 was released. I remember getting a notification about an available update after months of browsing on beta 5. At first I didn't quite read the RC 1 bit, so I assumed that the final version had been released. No, it's just a release candidate for the final version, which is setting its paw on global PCs next month.

One reason I ...

It's been a long day. I overslept, and woke up to find a lot of unread mail to be read, blog comments to be answered, and skins to be downloaded.

My bad. I usually keep working on the PC till like 4 in the morning, which is why I'm unavailable all day.

 

As I said, had a long tiring day sorting my mail and blogs, and going away for three hours over to my grandparent's place leaving important work undone didn't help matters. So I decided to make a list of 5 applications that have ma...

I write my articles through Windows Live Writer, and I publish them on my JoeUser blog. I have a registered Stardock.net account, so is that why all my articles are automatically posted on WinCustomize forums too?

Actually I registered with Stardock through WinCustomize somewhere in April. I read about JoeUser on WC, so I tried to make an account with the same username; but JoeUser told me that the username was unavailable. After seeing WC folk at JU, I followed my instinct and tried to log...

You heard and read the tales of many bloggers and daily life PC users of how they anxiously waited for Windows Vista's much awaited public release, and how it broke their heart to know that it isn't quite much of a... well...operating system.

And almost daily, many organizations hoping to direct the use of computing in the hopes of expanding their business, purchase Windows Vista and give it a test drive, which is almost always a test crash.

 

Why? Why is all this happening? ...

Who hasn't read Draginol's article [The existence of for-pay stuff doesn't hurt you] on WinCustomize? And having read it twice to grip the concept behind his thought, I must say that he's  reflected what is sadly a very common fault of a majority of the online crowd. How many of us don't download software, big or small, almost everyday, from the internet? And seeing that this means that more than three billion people downloading software daily, which has turned software compa...
