Dear Windows Users: You Suck

Now that we've gotten the title over with, here's something for the Windows geek that could be a lot of fun.

I've been using Quartz Composer, and here's how complex the McCain-pissing-Palin image is:

Plug the image into the particle thingie. Plug the other image into a sprite. Make another sprite black for background. It's stupidly easy.

VVVV looks a little clunkier to me, but it's the same concept: plug this unit into that one and you have video. It also looks quite a bit more powerful than Quartz Composer, and it's likelier to have many more people adding freebies to it.

Hrrrumpf. There is no "Windows geek."

Windows users are the decent, gray-haired, white-skinned Americans w/ jobs & Socialist Security, who don't protest in the streets or cause trouble, just drive their Rascal scooters that Medicare paid for to see the grandkids, and believe in freedom for God & freedom from government.

But keep calling them that. When the sleeping geek awakes & puts his dentures in, ooooh, you'll be sorry.

Having viewed the action, all well & good, but Sen. McCain's stream being anywhere near that powerful is highly unlikely.

Are spray or dribble effects available?

Let me let you in on some animation secrets good sir: Mr. McCain's flow is that powerful to obscure the fact that the portrait I stole was a seated one so I had to erase his legs.

Prostate jokes are NOT FUNNY.

"reheat", sez Captcha. I never expected product placement for microwaves.

Of course there are Windows Geeks. We soup 'em up, tear out the unnecessary weight, bolt on a new manifold and dual pump Holleys, save up for air shocks and glass packs, and put big-ass tires with mag wheels.

Or else we quadruple boot a bunch of obscure OSs, install a proxy, tweak Winsock for multi threaded networking and add a bunch of 64 bit addressable storage.

Same diff

Bomb their prostates!
