I’m really not much of an artist. To be frank, saying “not much of an artist” is being a little too kind to myself. I once drew a dog at the request of a 6 year old, who, upon me finishing my drawing, looked up at me and said, “I don’t know what that is, but that’s not a dog.” Kids and their brutal honesty! While I’m not good at making something out of nothing, if given the right tools I can occasionally create some fun visual things. Fortuna...

2020 was a challenging year for the console and PC industry, and it seems like 2021 isn't shaping up to be much different either. Worldwide shortages of parts, exacerbated by the Coronavirus pandemic, have made it difficult for many companies to keep up with demands for their products. Just as chip shortages have affected AMD and intel, similar shortages have impacted Sony and its PlayStation 5, which released last Christmas. A recent briefing with Hiroki Totoki, the Chief Financial Officer o...

It seems like not long ago we were posting this similar article about spring. Well summer arrives in a little over a month, and I think it's going to be a hot one. Summer is a fun season to skin as there are a variety of WindowBlinds skins, animated wallpapers for DeskScapes, CursorFX themes and more you can use! There are also plenty of landscape wallpapers to have your desktop feel like it's on a tropical vacation. We'll be showing off and featuring more summer inspired skins soon, but plea...

It's been a long time since I've been around. Just thought I'd see how everyone is doing. So...Hello! How is everyone doing? And isn't time for Wincustomize to do a refresh? It looks the same as it did 20 years ago. Which could be a good thing I guess?
I don’t know if this will be my last AAR of Galactic Civilizations III.   As I type this, the game is about to turn 6 years old and is still going strong. We’ve been working on an update for the game for awhile and are hoping to get it released before the anniversary (fingers crossed).  This AAR will kind of act as a retrospect on the game, mention some changes we’ve made and hopefully be entertaining. I am playing as the Terran Empire.  I c...

Hey guys. I hope someone out there has multiple taskbars and can confirm this.   Also I hope Stardock can fix it.  Although I think it's a Microsoft thing.   I have triple monitors with a taskbar on all monitors.  The main monitor gets a different context menu than the others when right clicking the taskbar.   Yall seeing the same? Main monitor:   Secondaries:

Star Wars: The Bad Batch is finally here! This is the latest animated Star Wars series, and some are calling it a continuation of the Clone Wars. We're getting ready to watch the first episode tonight, but I wanted to know if anyone else is watching or is interested in this show.

Is Earth ready for a potentially catastrophic asteroid impact? Unfortunately, the answer appears to be no. An international exercise to simulate an asteroid striking Earth is finished, and with its fictitious impact concluded, things aren't looking so hot for the 185-mile stretch between Prague and Munich. It sounds like a game, but it's actually serious business. The exercise is being led by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Center for Near Earth Object Studies and is meant to prepare sc...
I hope you enjoyed season 1 as much as I did!It's going to be a long time until season 2 so I decided to put together an 8-episode guide prediction which I'll share here.I have no inside knowledge but I have read the comic. This post has changes from the comic that I think make it more compatible with an episodic TV show.Obviously, this isn't how it will actually go down. But it is likely to go down something like this so major spoilers. Stop now if you haven't read the comic book.Spoilers...Spo...

If you had told me twenty years ago that the world would get to a point where thousands of people could tune in and watch people play a video game live just about anytime you want, I’d have called you crazy. And I definitely would have been wrong. When I pause to consider online streaming and all that it’s become, it really does just sort of leave me awestruck. I can’t believe how “on demand” things are now, from video and movie streaming services, all the way...
