I've never felt so much pride and shame at the same time. [Apr. 24th, 2009|10:00 am]

The dates on the pictures are off because I updated them to reflect some minor cosmetic changes I made (nav bar on springboard now fits with the rest of the LCARS motif-though I need to figure out why it's still being dimmed). Also, you can click here to check out some of the other modifications I made to the UI. Someone else made that battery. It's good, but I'll probably want to make my own eventually.

Here's what I did last night instead of sleeping!

I turned this


Into this.


Even set up a lockscreen and sliders and stuff to go with it,with sounds to match. Majel Barrett makes noises out my phone. SHAME.

Phew. Remember the last time I did something like this? That was four years ago. Four! Here are additional refreshers. It's a good thing I can immortalize this stupid fuckery on The Livejournal! <3

Thank yew! This was my first attempt at something like this; I definitely had training wheels on, and a lot of the images and stuff were already harvested and floating around. Apparently, there's a lot of love for LCARS!

Check this out. I couldn't wait for him to finish, so I made mine. His, however, is a work of art.

Is this something you can distribute to other people or is this just a custom job for your own phone? I don't even own an iPhone but I'd almost consider buying one just to skin it up like this!

This one's just a quick custom thing. It seems like most people are making them that way, although some gents have been kind enough to make button-sized bits of LCARS for mixing, matching, and labeling, which wasn't too time-consuming to cobble together. If I can figure out a way to just make different LCARS backgrounds and just have transparent icons floating on top without it looking shitty, then I would totally find out how to make it more widely available.

If you get an iPhone (you should, but wait till June, the new ones are coming out), I would totally help you get set up with that stuff.

Yeah, I was going to pick up an iPod Touch a few weeks ago when I was flush with cash but then I was advised by several people to hold off like you said. I may take you up on that offer in a few weeks. :P

people you should know!

LJ personalities you need to enjoy!

http://thespus.livejournal.com/298304.html - that's my friend Adam who is awesome and sweet and talented and wonderful. You guys would totally get along.

http://suxdonut.livejournal.com/1475393.html - and that's Tatiana who drew "A Strange Day" and "Pictures of You" those comic books I showed you. She is amazing to the point of madness, and soooo much fun!

The amazing man who made the macros is my clown-friend RoRo http://rorotheclown.livejournal.com/169359.html Who you would also love forever! If you guys were to ever be in the same room, i'm sure it would explode by so outrageously exceeding its capacity for awesome.

Anyway I just thought I'd put those links here so I don't forget and so you can do snooping whenever you fancy. They will be happy to meet you!
