Computers have feelings usually not expressed. They have hurt, anger, depression, and in this case, inordinate feelings of inferiority. Today’s Daily Create was to make a blue screen of death message using type only. My screen just wants to die and not come back.
I made this in GIMP. I downloaded the fixed system font to give it that true Windows appearance and modeled it after an example I found on the Google. Opening it in another GIMP window, I used the drop tool to grab the blue color, filled my background. I typed in the word “windows” and put a new layer behind it with the gray box, and then flipped the text color to that same blue background color. By clicking the link icons in the layer palette, I could move them around together.
Sometimes when I need text, I find stuff online to model; After some googling on “inferiority compleex example” I found a message board to lift some starter text, and then just re-wrote it in a plain text editor, then pasted in GIMP.
Listen to your machines. They might be telling you something.
