    Ambitions and dreams

    I thought this could be a good place to share your pursuits and future ambitions. Because of my love of natural fibres and interest in clothing, recently I've been hoping to one day start an organic textiles company in Australia.

    Do you use the mobile versions of the wiki and forum?

    A lot of my time is spent out and about, so I'm not always at home on the desktop. I do find the mobile forum version especially useful for checking in on discussions or replying to messages (although I wish there was a clear notification for something new in my inbox). And I love the simplicity...

    GIMP phuk up

    Ummm kinda confused about something.. there's something about File:Big Beanie Artwork - Yoshi's New Island.png that GIMP doesn't like. Whenever I open the image in GIMP and edit/overright it, it makes the edges very visibly jaggered when I open the saved image in other programs. Da faq?!

    Donkey Kong Country Classics

    I had an idea, and I was wondering what opinions people had on it. Imagine if a new Wii U title was announced, and it was a port which included the three original Donkey Kong Country titles for the SNES home console on one disk.

    How the old times can surpass methods used today

    Recently I visited a museum which was mainly focused on the local history, and I came across a very interesting article at one of the exhibits. I found it amazing that an almost 200 year old method made up of dits and dahs which is commonly thought to be a more time-consuming and unwieldy...
