Isn't time to take down that avatar?
It must be really hard for you; everytime you see it it reminds you of 7 straight non-winning seasons. Put up the Sharks avi...I thought you were a Sharks fan!!??

18. I've been thinking about it..
and I've decided to wait until the NFL season is officially over...meaning after the SB. The Sharks avatar is ugly anyway.

Hey, I thought you were a Rams fan? You sure seemed to change your tune quick once Limbaugh was looking to get involved. Or is it just the fact the Rams are averaging only 2 wins a year since 2006 got you down?

Btw...How does it feel living in NorCal and rooting for a team located half a continent away? Sort of reminds me of a certain Cowboy fan..

24. It feels fine
I never liked going to football games anyway. The stands are way too far away for enjoyment. I prefer to watch football on TV.

13. How do you do that?
I've seen Trumad do this as well.

How do you take a portion of a website like mad's post and turn it into a picture?

15. Do a Screen Cap, dump it into a graphics program and upload it to Photobucket
Of course you'd have to crop it a bit.

That's how I would do it

16. I don't know what a screen cap is...
but I don't have a graphics program and I have cheap laptop where it's difficult enough to download firefox so even if I knew how I probably wouldn't be able to do it.

17. Put it into the Windows clipboard by hitting "printscreen"...
Crop it with your favorite picture editor.
Then upload it to photobucket.
(That's how I do it anyway)

Also works great with pictures that you can't link.

19. This is close
I found "Screen Capture" under Accessories so this is what this is. This is too large because I don't have a picture editor to crop it. I'll have to figure out how to download one to my PC. It's Linux instead of Windows.

20. Download ImageMagick for Linux
That's what I use on Linux. But there's probably a better one somewhere.

21. How did you do it?
Simple downloads don't work for me. I found a site that says get 'Gimp' but I have troubles with that. http://wiki.eeeuser.com/thegimp

I typed ctrl & alt & T (it brings up a black screen)

Then 'sudo bash' (enter)

apt-get update (enter)

apt-get install gimp (enter)

However than it says "Package gimp is not available and is referred to by another package.
This may mean the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package gimp has no installation candidate"

:banghead:

:hi: Thanks El but I'll eventually figure it out.

22. Do you use a GUI like Gnome or KDE?
Edited on Sat Jan-23-10 12:53 PM by El Supremo
Do you have Linux Firefox? You should be able to download directly through it.

If not, I can't help you because I never learned all the command line stuff even though I've been using Unix and Linux for almost 20 years.

Added: And ImageMagick will do a window capture for you. Any X-window that you have up, like your browser window. Then you can crop and resize it directly.

23. After several tries
I finally was able to download Gimp. There wasn't enough info on the EEE PC boards on how to download imagemagick. Anyways at least I can crop now.
