This took a while.. the spacing isn't the greatest.. but I like it, my roommate is framing it and hanging it somewhere for everyone to see our geekiness.

I so need to make one of these.  Cheesy
It's brilliant, good job!

Also, you have a very cool looking keyboard. Weird how widely spaced it is though, or perhaps that's just how it looks in comparison to basic MS 'boards and their different shaped stickey-outey keys.

Thanks a lot!
We got kicked off the internet for using too much bandwidth, so I decided to occupy myself some other way..
That's a Mac keyboard. I have a Mac Mini.. It's really great, I love it.
I used Stitches for OS X (the Mac operating system), a free program, to turn a photo or whatnot into a pattern.. Very handy! There are several programs for Windows also.. I'm a big Mac geek though. Smiley

Haha, I'm anti-Mac. >_>
Sounds like I need to find me one of those programs though, I've been wanting to turn some favourite pictures into cross-stitch real badly.
Thanks!

Nice cross-stitch!

It does embroidery/cross-stitch as well I think.

You can get Stitches for OS X here: http://www.stitchesapp.com/history
I don't know of any free Windows programs unfortunately...

127.0.0.1 is referred to as "home" on a computer, or "localhost", mostly for when you have a web server running.. A good joke to play on a n00b is to get them to telnet or FTP to 127.0.0.1 and delete their own files without realizing it. Cheesy

I'm a geek.. I'm almost done my second one! But I've gotta get ready for the new years eve party!

End 2008. 2008 + 1. LEVEL UP Everyone!

Thanks for all the nice comments. Smiley

If anyone wants the pattern I'll upload it somewhere for you. I used 16 canvas.
