I really like the wallpaper. Very 90s 😁. Can I download it from somewhere?

Nice videos btw, you really pay attention to the lighting of everything. Do you do something with photography or film for work?

Thanks! These are just sketches, I´m not happy with them at all yet. I´ll set them up for download when they´re ready.

Photography has been my passionate hobby for almost ten years and I´ve basically advanced to a professional level, mainly because I tend to let things get out of hand 😁 But aside of a few paid photo shoots, I don´t do it for living and I don´t want to. I started making videos because I wanted to film my retro projects, and due to my photo-hobby I also had the knowledge and necessary gear to cover the basics. I just had to buy a mic and a light.

Sketching custom wallpapers and splash screens...

These look nice 😀

I once made a (cheap mspaint) splash screen for WinME. All white with black letters saying "DOS 8.0" and below it in smaller font "Going further..." or something which was also half meant as a joke as WinME had had lots of complaints about its relatively poor DOS compatibility relative to its older siblings of the 9x family.

Btw, also watched your video on the card upgrade and those Zalman GPU HSFs always looked very nice! I have one with a blue heatsink iirc?
Good thing you cleaned the card. It didn't look very dirty though, but I always clean at the very least the heatsinks (along with new TIM). I would have kept the sticker on though as I kinda see it as part of the history of that card yes I know this may seem strange to some.

Thanks! Yeah, the card didn´t look dirty in the video but there was some dirt and grime on it. Besides, I like how these parts smell brand new after thoroughly cleaned 😁 I only leave the stickers on if they are still properly attached, otherwise they are nothing but litter for me and I don´t want to leave litter inside my builds 😀
