Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today …

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace …

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world …

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Imagine – John Lennon

I have a new PC!!!

Fri Dec 5, 2014, 8:59 AM

Excuse the insane exclamation marks and be glad I didn't use caps :B I got a new PC, an acer Predator, and I am a happy bunny about this early "Christmas present" (That I actually own for almost a year now :rofl:) Also got an ergonomic US keyboard so expect typoes, especially in punctuation :lol:

What this means? Probably increase in activity, as you know, I try to do things at work, but eh they actually expect me to work there ;) I can use up to date browsers again so bye bye Safari :XD: Also finally got a WLAN at home :phew:

Thank you so much for the DD. I must admit that I had to look it up to discover its meaning in context (as double D's mean something completely different to a red-blooded, American male). When I logged in for the first time in two weeks and noticed my inbox was packed with comments and praise it was a nice surprise! Thanks, again.

So both you and ginkgografix are CSS geniuses, both are incredibly talented designers, both are lovely people, both are from Germany, and both are called Anne. :stare: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO DO TO MY BRAIN.
pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Oh, you haven't even discovered all of it :P But I think ginkgografix already mentioned that :lol: 

No trolling, I swear :XD: 

I am surprised nobody started a club for the confused yet :giggle: 
ginkgografix Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014
Wird mal Zeit, dass wir unseren eigenen Fanclub kriegen :D
pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Allerdings! :shakefist: 
HtBlack Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2014
:XD: she did, indeed.

:lol: I tell you, you two should switch accounts on April Fools and just troll everyone. "Wow, I'm the other Anne, how come you people always get confused, we are two separate people you know."
pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
I just thought about doing that :giggle: Or at least exchange icons :XD:

ginkgografix Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014
And both have the same education and studied at the same kind of school - you are not the first who gets confused by this mystery! Some people even say we are one :eyes:
HtBlack Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014
It's funny because I had no idea until I checked her page just now. :lol: you should just troll people, this is just so random. April Fools should be your party day!

A part of me will always think you are now that I saw this. :XD:
ginkgografix Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2014
Hm, I know that I replied to this comment - I even saw it on the page... but where the hell it is gone now? D:

It confused some CVs as well, when we both were on the team - so you are not the only one :giggle:

I just wanted to thank you for your CSS tutorials.

 I went ahead and learned the basics of CSS and HTML/XML, but your tutorials are good for refreshing my memory on certain codes. Mostly however, your tutorial on CSS Tricks: Journal break-down has been a savior for understanding how to make my own CSS for my journal skin.

:worship: Thank you so very much.  If it's okay with you, should anyone ask how I was able to create it, I will most definitely refer them to your tutorials.
pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Thank you very much for the kind words :huggle:
I am glad my tutorials were able to help you :aww:
I would love to see what you designed :la: 

And yes, you can always forward people to me :)
shoahmed Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
I need your assistance. Can you come in PM (Note) plz.
pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
I am sorry I was on vacation. Just updating on all the things. So if you still need my help, let me know :) 
shoahmed Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Yes i sent you note's many times in these days. Did you get it. Please confirm it.

pica-ae Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Yes, I found the note from mid October you sent me. I haven't had time to read my notes from October yet tho :)
I am sorry for not replying earlier or to previous notes you sent me. I usually don't answer self suggestion notes, so that is probably why I haven't replied to you before.

I'll get around to it as soon as possible :)
