Smile everyone!

Posted 05-10-2009 at 04:52 PM by uinseann

I downloaded a program called "Smile" I think it stands for "Slideshow Maker In a Linux Environment". The program just comes in an archive, which you extract anywhere you want, open the folder and double click in the "smile" icon.

Wellcome to perfect defeat?

Posted 05-09-2009 at 07:07 AM by AGer (Void cries or bashing time)
