    Our winner this week is uber n00b. Everyone who has read this thread knows why:

    Hello, I'm new here. I am just starting out and I have 3 questions for all you experienced designers:

    1. I heard Macs are better than PCs. Is this true and why?

    2. What programs do I need to start learning how make nifty designs such as those found in many of your sigs?

    3. I think this forum needs a redesign. No offense, but you call yourselves graphic designers?

    P.S. What's the fascination with Boobie Island?

    Our runner ups this week go to PrintDriver with an assist from Holliday. These are from Silence's fart thread:

    And the bat carries you to...
    The Gas Room.
    You have died.
    Lesson: don't bring torches to the gas room.
    (and if you know what I'm talking about, you're OLD!)

    Zork? An old Abermud?
    PrintDriver said...
    Yeah, Zork, old man.
    Or did you play the Gold series?
    Zork and Wizardry made me the geek that I am.
    And finally this one by Big Perm from the same thread which really made me laugh:

      Woooooohoooooo!!!!!!! I made QOTW!!!!!! Errr, I mean, congrats, uber n00b!!!!!!! LOL.

      Have a happy Friday, everyone! Mine is off to a slow start. I don't think I'm going to do anything productive for at least an hour or hour and-a-half. I look forward to sleeping in tomorrow and maybe hitting the beach if the weather permits.

      And for your viewing pleasure, here's another Quote that made me laugh this week:

        Great friday post Kool, I didnt see Uber Noobs thread...tho if I saw it, I'd have to threaten to kick his ass with my l33t skills because, anyone using the word "uber" and the l33t language needsa nice thwack to the head with a websters dictionary

        no l33t...let it die

        no uber... speak english

                                Got a job in an advertising agency and it's... extremely boring?
                                I've studied design for 3 years and had freelance clients here and there before. I just got my first actual job as a designer after being on the job market for about a year without any success.

                                As far as I can see you can only sort your own boards. There is no way to sort or save boards you follow.

                                I have been looking for an art community that has Graphic design contests & photomanipulation battles. I am hoping this is the place i am looking for since deviant art has become a place to post art...
