  1. Shift cmd 3 is the whole screen, shft cmd 4 you can crop exactly the section you want, super convenient!
  2. It's hard to give pointers when I don't know exactly what you are after XD But here's some general tips. The command button on a mac, does the things a ctrl button on windows do. The command button is the ones next to the spacebar, they say cmd and have a little weird square on them. Press "alt" to find hidden symbols on the keyboard; [ for example is alt+8 and ] is alt+9. Several buttons have hidden signals. You'll rarely see a "settings" menu on the top toolbar when within a program. Everything you are used to finding in a settings-menu, will usually be found under the name of the program. I am in firefox now, and when I click on Firefox in the top toolbar, I get the options About Firefox, Settings, Services, hide Firefox, Hide others, Show everyone, Quit Firefox. Whenever you are looking for settings for a program, click at the name on top to check there first. The Apple-icon on that same toolbar is where you'll find all sorts of settings for the Mac. Right-clicking on an icon in the dock (the place where you see your program icons, either at the bottom of the screen or the top) will show options for that program. You can remove them from the dock (this will not delete the program, only the shortcut in the dock), make the program auto-open when you turn on the computer, close the program and other things. On my spotify icon I can pause or skip to the next song i.e. If you minimize a program or window, you'll find it on the far right side of the dock, if the dock is at the bottom of the screen. You can change the position and size of your dock by clicking on the apple-symbol like I said earlier. Ok that's what came to mind right now XD
  3. People will always fear what they cannot understand, and fear leads to distrust and hatred.
  4. What are you doing all the way down here Cory? XD
  5. I shared my favourites when I started out as Fan Art blogger You can see them here: http://www.dragonmount.com/index.php/News/fan-art-friday/fan-art-friday-introducing-mish-r707
  6. I want double chocolate with a caramel swirl and hot fudge on top thank you (omg I wish that existed)
  7. We don't travel a whole lot, well quite a lot between our town and the neighoburing town but that's a 15 minute busride, my doctor is in that town and basically it doesn't feel like traveling XD Usually we don't travel that far; mostly we go to Oslo wich is a 3 hour trainride or 2 hour busride, and that's managable (except for when I have to go there and back again the same day because I have hospital appointments, ugh). When we went to Copenhagen the second time last year, we took the ferry down, thinking that would be better than flying. Sadly it wasn't that much better; I slept horribly (the ferry leaves Norway in the afternoon and arrives in Denmark early morning) and although I didn't get seasick, I managed to get an infection in my inner ear that made me dizzy, nauseous, gave me a splitting headache and a stomachache. I felt like I was dead drunk, honestly, and I hadn't had any alcohol at all. By the time we got back to Oslo and got off the boat, my shape was so bad I had a complete mental meltdown. On the middle of the street in pouring rain. That was embarrasing, to say the least... But yes, I do try to enjoy myself as much as possible when we do travel, but I usually try to schedule everything from 2 days to 2 weeks without any appointments at all after traveling, because I need time to rest and try to build up a tiny little bit of energy. Luckily our kitties seem to deal just fine with us going away; if we're away more than one night we make sure someone stops by to fill up their food and water, they're 3 so they keep each other company. If we're away more than 3 nights we ask the person feeding them to hang around for an hour or so, play with them and snuggle with them. Mostly it's my little brother doing the job and he really doesn't mind being able to use our apartment a bit XD
  8. My main problem with travelling is the energy it takes and the amount of pain I know I'll have to endure. Especially since we don't have a car; we need to take the train to get to the airport, wich is a 3 1/2 hour trainride away. And to get to get to the train station we need to either take a bus or a taxi. So If our plane leaves at 5 in the afternoon, we'll need to leave home at about 10 in the morning usually. So by the time we even get to the airport, I'm tired and drained of energy, and my body is aching like mad. And it'll just get worse and worse by the time we finally arrive. Being on a plane is painful, I don't deal well with sitting unless I either have something to prop my legs up on, or I have a table to lean on. Just sitting upright will be painful after five minutes. Fibromyalgi is fun. That was dreadful when we were going home from Turkey in May. 2 1/2 hour busride from our hotel to the airport, 4 hour planeride, and since our plane arrived at 2am at night, we had 5 hours at the airport before the first train left at 7 am... I was almost crying from exhaustion by the time we got home. My other biggest pet peve about travelling is food. Being dependant on bying food from cafés, kiosks or resturants, it gets expensive real fast, and most of the time the food is crap (I have quite high standards for food...). I hate paying the same amount for a dry, not very nice sandwich as I do for a beautiful bowl of pasta from the husband my resturant works at. And then of course there is the missing of kitties. I hate leaving them.
  9. Sorry for the multiposting Sooh, WOW girl you can play! Kronos, Rhea, this was a really good game for both of you! Alanna, it might not have been your best game ever reads-wise, but you never gave up, you kept on fighting for town, and that's the most important factor! Your case on Clov was a very important point, it made him have to defend himself with that rather lame (sorry Clov!) case on RTE and clinched the deal. Attagirl BFG, stop doubting yourself re:deadthread, you did great! And Tress Fantastic game and modding as always! Why you haven't gotten an EMPY yet for your modding is beyond me!
  10. Seriously sitting here blushing like mad after reading the dead thread. Thank you, guys. That really helped on my decision if I'm back to mafia for good or not :) *snuggles everyone except for the filfthy scum*
  11. " corycurren 08-05-2015 09:48 AM ET (US) Your yearly reminder that Mish is just an excellent player all around and she's been sorely, sorely missed" Oh Cory :wub: I missed you too!
  12. ALL honour to Razen for this win! He was the one that made me look into Clov. Tab, I think you played as well as you could with the cards you were dealt this game! I'm sorry for making the lynch on you happen, but I needed to resolve you and Alanna, and I knew if Clov was the last mafia, I would need Alanna's casing skillzzzzz. I'm really happy I got to play in this game a little bit Tressgames <3 Thank you dear
  13. Clov I'm sorry but that post just reeks of self-preservation. RTE is the only one you logically could go after; Rhea is without a doubt town, going after Alanna would've mde you seem even more desperate, and you couldn't go after me after being so buddy with me yesterday. Also can't believe I forgot to do this with my first post at start of day [v] Clov [/v]
