Windows 8 Release Preview DVD Cover

Back in March i created my DVD cover for the Consumer Preview release and once again i have been busy in photoshop, mind you i know its a few days late, but these things happen. this dvd cover is the perfect size for fitting in a dvd case all you need to do is click the image, “save as” and print, the dimensions are already spot on so all you will have to do is hit “Print”. i created a second DVD Cover as well just in case some people arent feeling the abundance of green blasting out of that DVD cover, part of me didn’t like the “THIS IS TOO MUCH GREEEEEN” feeling i got when i made this, so i created a second one using a different background. Follow the instructions for getting the Release Preview and use the key and you should be good to go!

enjoy!

Longhorn After All This Time…

You know….its amazing when you think about it, the impact that Windows Longhorn had on the world and Communities far and wide. Even this second it still amazes people and communities are still deep in discussion about the huge amount of builds that leaked as far back as 2002 i believe (?) and its hard to believe that after all this time there are people hacking bits out of builds and installing and re-installing and even with all the Windows 8 hype going on, there are still people talking about Longhorn anyways the point i am trying to make is that people are still bringing unseen things to the table, recently ReflectiaX posted some screenshots on BetaArchive.com that people hadnt seen before, mostly concepts, but its crazy to think that after all this time 10yrs later there is still stuff out there to be found.

the key to it all, and i am sure ReflectiaX would agree that its all about search queries and taking the time to really search for what you are looking for and eventually you will find something.

One of the screenshots was of the PDC 2003 Aero Demo presented by Hillel Cooperman, first shown off by Paul Thurrott (below), but his rendition was of two camera shots during the demo pieced together and wasnt that great and was blurry, but that single screenshot was basically the most epic thing ever seen, lol.

this new screenshot (shown below) that was posted is an actual high quality screenshot *giggles! the quality is spot on!

the other screenshots look like they are from a demo of 405x build which are quite a bit different than anything i have seen before as they all contain different Preview Pane/Shell graphics, either way these are cool as hell and i though i would post them here for those who havent seen them yet on BA.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview DVD Cover

Here we go, for those of you who have downloaded my other dvd covers that i have made, i had some free time during my week stuck at home in crazy pain with Kidney Stones to make a cover for the Consumer Preview of Windows 8 that was released last week i know this is a bit late and i wish i posted this much earlier…but shit happens, now that i go back and look at it i cant say that i am 100% happy with this, but the pain medication i was on made this an overall “FUN” experience, and although this should have really taken me an hour to make, it took much longer as the Dilaudid the gave me for the pain kept playing tricks on me, lol. click for full size, the cover is the perfect size for a dvd case, just save as and print, GO!!!!

Slight Hiccup

Hey guys, after i formatted my PC last week and made my post on the February 29th, i was pretty stoked to get back into the swing of things, with the Consumer Preview around the corner and all the hype going on, little did i know a few days after i would find myself in the Emergency Room of the hospital not once but twice….where to start? Well i had Friday March 2nd off which was great way to start the weekend, Saturday the girlfriend and I took a trip out to the country as we have been looking to abopt a Greyhound Dog, i have asthma and heard that Greyhounds are great for people with allergies to dogs so we decided to go and foster one for a month to see what happens. The day started off pretty damn good although i was feeling a bit off for some reason, i had a small cramp in my stomach on the left side and on my lower back, we were at the Greyhound place until about 6:30pm that day, but at approx 5:30 sumthin totally unexpected happened, The cramps were  getting worse (like hot sweats, worse) and it felt like someone had kicked me in my kidneys and beat the crap out of me. we found ourselves a dog we could foster for a month, but i told the girlfriend we need to break out of dodge as i wasnt feeling very good at all, thinking i just had to go home and use the bathroom (TMI, i know! but whatever..) got home used the bathroom and took some TUMS, the pain was so bad at this point i told the GF i was going to get into bed for a bit and just lay down, 30 minutes later we were off to the hospital, the pain at this point was so intense i felt like i was high as a kite, i was mumbling words and shit, sweating like a sauna and was starting to feel nauseous. we got to the hospital and by this time i was a mess 2hrs later, i was told i had Kidney Stones (WTF?) after i gave up some of my precious pee to the doctors, oddly i went through this same thing back in 1997, i had a CT Scan the following day that found 3 stones in my kidneys 1 that was 3mm in size and the other 2 were 2mm in size, the 3mm one has “left my body” but the other 2 are still chillin in my kidneys, the gave me some morphine via an I.V for the pain and all that did was make me feel worse. they tried something else (Toradol) and that seemed to do the trick. so far i have missed a full week of work and experienced for the second time the most intense pain i have ever felt in my life thus far, i wouldn’t wish Kidneys Stones on my worse enemies….all i can say is when people tell you to drink 8 glasses of water a day DO IT! theres a reason for it, i believe i have been mildly dehydrated for a while now and need to start drinking more water. anyways its been a week from hell and i still feel a bit off from not eating and drinking much during the whole ordeal..trying to get my health back together and get some energy. for those who care the dog is awesome as hell (i have never owned a dog before) havent had any crazy allergy fits yet, not sure if thats a sign or not? who knows! i made a Windows 8 dvd cover a few days ago, but have been too lazy to post it with everything going on, stay tuned i’ll be posting it shortly.
