when we're old
when we're older
we'll live together
in a big house
with a big dog
and when we're older
we can be together
all alone
we'll stay at home
and watch old movies
that we've watched
a hundred times
and we'll have jobs
that end the same time
so we get home
from work
then go out for supper
and when we're older
we won't be old
we'll just be old enough
to be in love.

looking for simplicity in nature (part.2)
As i mentioned in my previous article ( , nature always give inspiration to artists, especially to photographers. There are too many hidden details in nature, which needs more attention to find out..
We must see things more simple and plain, reflecting this to art, basicly would show us how life is so pure :aww:
Here are more examples of inspirations from nature :

The Thinking Man Project
The Thinking Man project goes live!
joysoftruth's Thinking Man Project is a community-oriented project open for any and everyone in deviantART! :)
Currently counting on 50 pictures, the goal is to achieve more than 200 shots, with no limits whatsoever!
Therefore, if you want to participate, you only need a 320x240 picture of yourself doing the "thinking man" pose and Note or e-mail it to joysoftruth. Pictures can be bigger, but if they are, they'll be resized.
So, grab your cameras and webcams, hit up the best pose you can, and let's make this project a part of dA history!
Hope to see you in there!

Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in. (Napoleon Bonaparte)

Getting the most out of your CSS Journals Eight
Welcome back! Sorry for the long delay between articles. I'm cutting them back to once a month so I have time to prepare nothing but the best CSS samples for you ;D
Let's begin!
Rounded corners
You might remember this from a while back, but it's back yet again, with updated code! Thanks to long time supporter Monkeyshack, we have a new set of rounded corners code for you to get your slimy little mitts on. These look awesome and don't rely on external corner images to function.
You can download them from here: Corners Example by MonkeyShack. Any questions can be sent to myself or Monkeyshack
Dynamic journal?
Yes! It is possible! To a certain extent. How would you like a journal that changed appearance every time you viewed it? Using an older bit of code from my gallery, you can!

People have since been curious to art that can easily define thoughts. Beautiful art is usually hard to come by. Most people see something that is different then other people, just from how each persons mindset is. Here are some photos that create a mood to help one think.

deviantART Reaches all Time Traffic Highs
Well, we fixed that bottleneck and you got the speed you requested. Site is blazing fast and the natural process continues...
... millions of new requests quickly filling up capacity.
It's really very exciting to watch. In fact it can be crippling to your day if you aren't careful checking google analytics like an ... analytical chip monk as Moonbeam13 so ... eloquently put it.
The Raw goods:
Pageviews are defined by one user accessing one page and any contents of that page.
Hits, which are not referenced here would be different in that they would account for all raw hits to internal servers.

What *is* exciting is the projected 34,989,519 for today!
We expect 5% growth like this per day until the site hits its

Spot: The Magic Man Departs
There was a period of time in the life of deviantART where enormous pressure was placed on our team for an extended period of time that exceeded the concept of high stress, commitment, determination and above average will.
In some circles it is recognized that start-up companies go through perhaps their most challenging pains in year two and three. If you've made it that far in a start-up, the idea is good, the business has reached some amount of validation and what you're left with is the challenge and responsibility of seeing it through its most formative years.
At deviantART we faced this challenge with no outside capital, we relied entirely upon our gracious and hugely supportive and loyal community to help us through the most trying of times. And to be blunt we relied upon and tested the raw guts of our core leaders in the company to take charge of a few critical areas and to perform for deviantART above and beyond any other responsibilities.
From my personal perspective two names

New Sharing Tool Coming!
Share The Good Stuff!
As deviantART grows in size one of the things that often times comes up is "how on earth do I get noticed here?" as well as "I just saw this cool piece of art and I want to really get it out there to show other people". Well, we will be making that much easier for you later this evening with a new link that you will find next to deviations that will allow you to quickly send a thumbnail of the image to another deviant via our note system…but that are just the small stuff!
In addition you will be given the means to easily publish it to, and Now you can be part of helping killer art from DA infiltrate further and further into the tubes of the internet!
All of this will be accomplished by an easy to use "Share This/Blog This" button next to each deviation.

Portfolio Page...Contest!
**UPDATE** The contest is now closed and winners will be announced Monday!
So as many of you may recall, we promised to add a special portfolio page to subscribers accounts? Well, we are working on getting those rolling out but we have come to a stumbling block trying to decide exactly how they should look. And hey, since you guys will be the ones using them we decided you should be the ones who get to choose what they look like. But first…
For those unfamiliar with the concept I shall explain. The portfolio page will be a page that has a space for personal information, contact information, and the ability to place deviations on them of your choosing. The deviations will have no commentary on them, and a description will be optional. You may also pick and choose what deviations go on them. Primarily with things like this you would use it to showcase your strongest work.
The page itself will be

United States

but mostly buzzing around the house on espresso
I saw you sitting on the front porch of that pretty house you sit at, and you looked like a sunset there against the grey sky, with your blue bright sparkling eyes. I dreamed we sat together there on the lawn at the world's end, hands linked forever beneath the decaying moss....apes to humans...ashes to to bone to dust.
