I’m getting fussy in my old age, what with being generally perturbed by all the people who admit that they spooge off their neighbors’ unguarded WiFi or download stuff off BitTorrent.
But then I got to thinking about my computer. Is it a log in my eye?
I’m a huge Lilo & Stitch nut. Last year when I got the Mac I decided to buy CandyBar and IconBuilder so that I could add Icon Creation to my list of “talents”. I then made for myself only a series of Stitch Icons for use on my Mac. (Which is named “Stitch”)
Technically these are all ®Disney, but I took the art from their “available” download activity pages (coloring pages, promo desktops, etc.) and spent several hours manipulating them. I’ve never sold or traded the Icons. So, is it wrong?
UPDATE: For those in the “get a life” category, I’d like to point out that this little exercise in Icon building was time spent honing skills I use in my business every day. Time you yourself might have spent either hanging out at Alternet or drunk off your butt playing Doom.
