site > F.A.Q.
How long have you been making wallpapers and collages?
I taught myself how to use my program in August of 2002. I never touched any sort of software before that. I was very anti-computer. But since then I have learned to love the internet and all the people (well, almost all *wink*) I have met through here.
Can I put your stuff on my site?
Look, the internet is full of thieves and I don’t like getting headaches over it. So, sure. But I would appreciate a little respect. I am thrilled that you enjoy my stuff well enough that you would want to share it with others, so all I ask is that you please credit me, preferably with a link back my site. And if you do, shoot me an email and let me know. Though that isn’t mandatory. I’m just curious as to where you are archiving it.
Do you make custom graphics and wallpapers?
Um, kinda. I have a form that you can fill out. But it is not guaranteed that I will make what you ask for. If I have no interest in the subject then I won’t want to waste time on it. I don’t get paid for this shit, you know. And if I don’t have proper inspiration, I guarantee that the results will be ugly and unwanted anyway.
What program do you use to create your layout and graphics?
Currently, I use Adobe Photoshop CS2, although I started out on Adobe Photoshop Elements and 6.0. Not too much of a difference, I know. For additional information about other tools I have used, check out my about page.
Why don’t you offer 1024×768 resolution?
Although my site is designed to be viewable 1024×768 resolution, my monitor is large (and in HD!) I use a resolution of 1680×1050 and so I make arts that are slightly under that. That’s just the way I like it. Sorry.
How did you do that?
Wanna know how I created a specific effect? You can always use the form below and inquire. I will try to get back to you asap. But often times, I kinda of just play around until I get what I am looking for.
What’s the deal with the names?
Fractured Simplicity. Because the two words together are quite antithetical and isn’t much of life the same way? Nothing is truly simple…or at least, my cynicism tells me so.
Black Celebration. Nothing clever about this one. It’s just the title of my favorite Depeche Mode album.
Do you host people?
No. Not anymore. Sorry.
I like your site. It looks cool. Can you help me out with some coding?
No. But if you wanna view my page source, feel free. Be warned though; I am completely self-taught in web design and HTML and PHP and all that good stuff, so there are certainly going to be flaws. My site may look nice but I am pretty sure that the coding isn’t all accurate. But please don’t steal my code. If you want to look at it because you can’t figure out how to display something in quite the same way that I do, then that is okay. But I hate when I find sites that look far too similar to mine (usually regarding the CSS) and this does happen on occasion. I’ve ven had people steal my coding without changing hardly anything! Even my own words! So that is not cool, k?
