Ok, back to square one.

Well... instead of archiving the school blog, I mirrored the wrong blog (To delete the post is a chore, trust me).

Oh well...

Mini-update: Getting a Wii.

Today my bro gets his very own first game console, a Nintendo Wii.
Got it at a cheap price, $39X at Simei. Wow, and my bro is jumping with joy, not me.
After intense Wii sports (The Wiimote is at the edge of flying out by my bro's hands), it was fun, very fun but got only two games, Wii sports(Duh) and the F1 2009. 

Well that's about it today.


* I will try to get the pic but it's late and duh, need sleep you know. =3

konoto!, now in Blogger template style

I recently upgraded this blog code from classic template (easier but boring) to Blogger managed template (fun but hard to use, screw it). A few glitches around (copy and paste and some crap fixes) here; classic template to Blogger type is a major move, not everything is 100%.

Well if not all but most of the item is just right here, I will try to get used to Blogger template or otherwise, move back to classic template (Yay!) but cuts the fun (Boo..).

*Previously, Divan (The a.k.a v5 for the Code3 {square}), includes blogger thingy but there's a problem, the content is running all over the place. With tons of failures (what), Divan is ditched. About the HTML5, it will be progressively be.... upgraded to (konoto!)?

konoto!   ,   revamped, redesigned, rewritten and now in blogger managed code. Web-browser friendly.

Anyone wants juice/coffee?

- Yup, it's 100% juice (With added sugar) -

Some extras (Konoto! portable design)

- Working on some new ideas (Expect a .PSD file like the one post below) -

Recent inactivity

I'm having a personal life problem and maybe away for weeks.

*Personal record of "no life", now @ 6 days.
Facebook is deactivated, no more updates as well.

Disaster happened.

It was a good for a walk with my friend and well, it has dark clouds. So we decided not to walk and instead I went to his house for a cup of coffee (sugar overdrive). True to my prediction, it rained. After drinking coffee, I received a phone call from my mom, saying that my block is on fire (WHAT THE ....). And so true to what I heard, there's smoke (indicating fire duh), I rush to the scene and OMG there is a fire, on the second floor.
*I live at the same block but different floor.

Lots of people is crowding around taking photos and fireman rushing to the scene, putting out the fire (When I got there, it is reduced to smoking but fire exists inside.)

Well it seems that no one got hurt at that time.

*(I concluded that it is a electrical fire, though the whole house is on fire; the main fire source is from one of the rooms.) 

Well that's that.

New Wallpaper for the blog (Soon?)

Taken that my exams are over (Left Chinese Basic, you can stop laughing now thanks.), I will be releasing some (or few) designs. Nothing else better to do anyway. Look out for PSD raw files. =D

Track Links:Typing game

> http://somoe.org/typing/ Wow. Quite hard and simillar to DJ Max or O2 Jam. Recommended to play it.

CSS code: Konakanami 4.0

- This is what Konakanami look like after applying the CSS -

Konakanami is discontinued for a reasons; preferred Neko! over Konakanami.
Although the CSS design is elegant and simple, it is not very "forward looking' like Neko!.

Another canceled code is Extended2.

- Simple yet effective -
Users who are new to CSS may find it hard to customize it. Can cause some blogs to freeze for awhile as the template uses Javascripts rather then CSS.

That's all~

Changes in Neko (

- Sidebar having gradient style (Link and object)-
- Blog post title having gradient style -

- Wider border for the mimic of a .png image (fits the title gradient) -

- New footer for Articina blog -

Overall it is a subtle change from 3.7.3

Track Links: Windows 7 Whopper

> Damnnn... Looking at @http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2009/10/22/only-in-japan-burger-king-offers-a-windows-7-whopper makes me hungry. It's like 2 meals into one. =D Too bad it's in Japan... Pretty cheap too.

Mini Post: Microsoft homepage

- Agreed~ -

- Hmm... a ball? -

Sidenotes: Love the design... created by trial and error...

- The gradient... where that come from BTW it is nice. New placement of search bar.-

- The footer design is from the header (Duh), crafted out from trial and error o.O"-

Photoshop effects-Tutorial 1

Top notes: Combining filters with fx effects. Lets see.

I think this is quite nice, giving a soft tone though it's black and white.

Step 1.
Get a line art, tracing or drawing, as long as there's lines.
I use my traced image, created by Adobe Flash CS4 (Duh, Flash user)
Since mine does not have a background (exported from Adobe Flash), the effects are obvious later on.
Recommended: Remove any background and create a white(or colors that complement) background in a DIFFERENT layer.

Step 2.
Filter gallery. Just add the filters shown in the *picture. No need for advanced tuning or anything else.
*On the bottom right hand corner.

The filter gallery excludes my white background but it's fine for me. Though the effect is (almost) not obvious to screens, well leave it as it is.

Step 3.
-From now on it's individual pictures.
Go to the layer you are authoring on and double click to open the layer style window.
The settings are there as well.

Drop shadow

Inner glow

 Gradient (Optional)

Step 4.
Finally click Ok and poof~ it's done. Remember to fine tune if you need to.

Without fx effect, only filter.
With both filter and fx effect.

Enjoy~ =D
Looks natural and the tone is soft. This effect is made by accident, after fooling around Photoshop for 2 minutes...

First guide.
Program required: Photoshop 7.0 and above.
Program used: Photoshop CS4 Extended

Fooling with Photoshop since 2004
Self-taught too. =D

Mini post: Adding PS effects.

Just one of my old traces with simple effects. Nothing much at all. No color, no fancy gradient, just filter and blending effects.

- Looks natural. Thanks to special tweaking of shadow effect. -

Away for now. Seriously.

I am away for the time being as my major examination is around the corner, 30 days to be exact.

This might (will) be my final post for this month and the whole of October. Oh well... the loneliness.

About the themes...

The previous post is about the newly created theme in Neko.

Now the problems. The design is flawless in the screenshot BUT there's under the hood there's problems (major, not D or C minor) < not a good comedian. An example is #twitter element. No longer in control (most likely caused by my reckless editing without backing up code) and relied on the #sidebar.

That explains the goof-ups in the theme. Another is (look at the third screenshot) the alignment.
In Safari and Firefox, it's fine. In IE, elements are in a mess. Don't want to elaborate much on that.

More flaws that you might want to see for yourself though, just see my CSS, looks alright, in IE it's not.

Not fixing much as my O-lvl is coming and currently having my prelim papers.

Bye for now~

Themes~ woot~

Hehehe~~~ The moment that I have wanting to do is "complete"~~ muh hahaha~~~ >=D

Expect anything more?

New Theme

I just created a theme for Neko like this. The default it the sky and grass thingy in Articina and my school blog. Quite cool hun?

More themes to come and will be releasing the public-friendly versions.


Note: Neko V3.7.x is not "compatible" with Internet explorer 6, 7 and 8 (Rather all the Microsoft internet browsers) because it lacks support for CSS3 and other stuff which they don't include like Firefox. The problem will be fixed/solved/evicted in the next version, Divan? =P

Reviving some of my works~









Sorry for any delay for loading the images; they are big! =P
