rev3rsor's minimalist desktop! by rev3rsor rev3rsor's minimalist desktop! :iconrev3rsor:rev3rsor 12 20 TaskBarTender 1.1 by rev3rsor TaskBarTender 1.1 :iconrev3rsor:rev3rsor 31 26
Literature
an elusive truth
a staircase.
missing a step is scary
not deadly
lasts a bit
then you joke about it
maybe forget it
since it happens to everyone, anyway
a cliff.
missing a step is scary
deadly
effects are felt
and it's serious
never forgotten
and only happens to few
a staircase is not a cliff
but that's not always obvious,
not at first.

Literature
epitaph of a soul not yet dead
a candle flickers, overpowered by a sudden gust
a glowing ember, it considers extinguishing itself
"no, maybe i'll stay"
as it gradually returns to its listless, lifeless flame
flickering on, as if nothing had occurred
a pen's lines become intermittent marks, fading to an unnoticed ridge in an otherwise blank ocean
a ruined utensil, it contemplates resigning to a discarded fate
"i can keep going"
as it eases back into meaningless, monotonous life
an endless stream of shapeless ink
"but why do i continue"
i say as i flicker
as i catch on the page
"replace me"
i beg
let me torment you no more
as i fail to die
and proceed with routine
again
"let it be over"
but it isn't
it never is
not for a candle, a pen,
a soul not yet dead.

TaskBarTender 1.1
What's new in v1.1: multi-threaded cores; template for easy editing!

--

A simple CPU and RAM indicator that sits on your taskbar! By default, the package should fit the regular windows taskbar (40 pixels high), but might require a little adjusting. Default setting includes 4 CPU cores and 4 RAM bars, though these can be changed fairly easily in the .ini files. Variables are included to easily change dimensions, too.

Please enjoy! Feel free to give me any comments or feedback if I can improve on it :) I generally only do a little bit of tinkering and this is my first original skin.

UPDATE 18/6/17: I'm putting this under CC BY-NC-SA, so you can use this skin with credit, not for profit and under these same conditions.

rev3rsor's minimalist desktop!
As per the title, this is my new/current minimalist desktop!

Background: until recently I've been using the one laptop for home and school, and because of my external monitor, I've been able to work on it while having Rainmeter widgets or something static (e.g. a textbook) on the second, smaller laptop screen. With a new smaller, self-contained laptop I've wanted to change my setup so here it is! My main focus was keeping the function the same: recycle bin and network usage stayed where they are, while I made a couple of CPU and RAM skins for the taskbar.

This might not be what you expect it to be. Since I've more or less stopped drawing, dA's become a place for me to do some writing and (semi-)vent a bit.

Need For Speed World was a game I played in probably 2013? I forget exactly when, but it was reasonably early. Early enough that earning in-game cash was quite difficult and the majority of cool cars and items could only be purchased with real currency. While the game isn't necessarily the important part of this, I still like(d) it so I'll go over it a bit. We know I like racing games, and customisation is a pretty big part of the experience for me. There's a reasonable amount in there, though I prefer something closer to the original Underground and Underground 2 (in my opinion 2 went a little overboard, but I still liked it). But back to World, I liked it because it was refreshing, had a good range of new and old cars, and had decent multiplayer. (I don't have particularly high standards, anyway.) The map was a bit nostalgic, because it was just Most Wanted and Carbon combined, but it had been long enough since I'd played those that it didn't get too boring or repetitive.

I think one of the reasons I didn't mind the Pay to Win part of World was that I'd previously played some similar online games (card games, because I like those too apparently) with paid content and seemed to do fine without. Those games, I won't talk about them here, were reasonably achieveable without paying money (I admit I did), but did end up pretty fun in my 12v/13v years. I imagined that World would be similar, that so long as I didn't mind missing out on some of the best, fanciest cars I could get by on the free content, and that was somewhat true, I suppose. I did get bored of it sooner or later, though, so I did quit for a long while. I mostly forgot about it, made a few jokes about the about of paid content, and went on to other things from there.

As most teenagers do, I decided at some point to revive some of my old interests/hobbies, and racing games were high on the agenda. I went back to my old NFSs (I owned 4 on PS2, and a few other games as well), which were pretty fun, and I also got back into World for a while. I noticed that it was a lot easier to earn in-game money compared to what I remembered a year or so earlier, so that was a nice addition. I played quite a bit then, logging in daily for daily rewards (only reached a streak of about 2 or 3 weeks, because of intermittent events and such), and it was actually quite fun saving up to buy cool stuff, some of which I actually got pretty lucky on. Of course, with any games like this there's a lot of chance, and I suppose I went 50-50 in terms of getting things I wanted. I did end up saving for a Lamborghini (Reventon, it was the last car I bought and I quite enjoyed my time with it), as well as some other nice things. Around that point I started reading up on the internet (mostly the forums) about World and the things going on with the game, and I found out to my disappointment that the game's servers would be going down at some point in the near future.

I suppose, at that point I changed my view on the game quite a bit. It was still fun, as a quick diversion, but with the events and reminders that "it's only so long until the end of the World" the game really felt like it was coming to a close. So I enjoyed it for a bit, while I could, while not investing too much time into it, knowing that the deadline was soon. I, with some others, would've wanted the last week or day(s) to release all locked content for free, for people to mess around with while the game was still up, but that never happened in the end. I don't really think this game now that it's dead, but I remember being a little disappointed; after all, there were cars I wanted to drive, mods I wanted to try out, that in the end I just couldn't get my hands on. In the end, though, I left a fair bit before the game was over, at least a week, and didn't stay for the final cruise that was organised for its last hours.

Looking back, I'd like to say that I fled the sinking ship before it went down, though of course I believe the game ended on a reasonably good note. (At least it didn't go into decline, with empty servers on the last week.) And even earlier, that was the same mindset I wanted for one of the online card games I had played for a long time, but quit before it was shut down. I like to think that I left while I had the choice, and while I still enjoyed the game - it was reaching a point where, in my opinion, any new releases were uninteresting and progress felt like a grind (which, before, it already was, but then I had some sort of mental goal to work towards). If I knew that the game was going to be shut down, and that the time, effort and $10 I put into the game would be worthless at the end, would I still have chosen to invest in it for two years in hindsight? And on a different scale with World, would I have chosen to return to enjoy those later days if I'd known that my daily pastime wouldn't exist in two or three months time?

I still don't have answers to those questions, and I think they would often change depending on a whole bunch of factors. But while this is all reflection on the past, and how I spent a small fragment of my teenage years, for me living now as a Christian, I have (among others) a much more pressing, consequential, urgent question, first and foremost to myself: If this world is going to pass away, if I myself will cease to live at some day, and I know there is an eternity in store, how do I spend this life? Do I invest my time, effort, money, into this world now? I believe that my answers are given to me from the Bible. And it's ironic to me that Need for Speed World was called that, as it's sort of a metaphor for my own world, and that this analogy would become relevant.

--

Food for thought, I guess. But what about you? Is this a question that you believe is relevant, and do you have, or even want, the answer? At least for me, eternity is a long time. ~~

Hey! I'm a Christian guy from Sydney, Australia. I play piano, obscure video games and dabble in tech. I also (used to) draw the occasional abstract picture.

Most of my music work can be found on my site, or on YouTube, while my humble art collection can be found here. As of recently, I've started working with Rainmeter too, for desktop customisation.
