Prayer of the Soul Wallpapers
« on: September 24, 2009, 04:09:00 PM »
Hi,
     When I was doing the full EE program I had the idea to make some wallpapers with the prayer on it to help people to memorize the words and also to be reminded in general of the work.

The size is 1600x1200 which should be sufficient for most monitors (I've only tried them up to 20" though)

Here is the link: _http://public.fotki.com/prayerofthesoul/prayer-wallpapers/

If you like one just click on the thumbnail and when it opens in a new window just scroll down to "get original uploaded photo" - a larger version should open and you can then right click and "save image as"

If there any problems just let me know.  :D

Dude these are awesome! Nice Work!

I couldn't find the "get original photo" bit however. Best I could get was this guy: _http://images30.fotki.com/v39/photos/2/1570302/7986608/prayereye-vi.jpg who isn't quite big enough to fill up ma monitor.

Nice job though.  :thup:

Those are sweet! I'm putting one of them up on my computer background!  :D

 Thanks!  :D

I've noticed that it's hard to download from the site so I've uploaded them to a file host.  :cool2:

Hi Stuart. The pics are beautiful. I downloaded prayerperson.jpg and set it as a desktop background to see how it would look and it is beautiful, I must say.

I use a flat screen LCD monitor with 1280x1024 resolution and 32bit color depth, and the image and prayer is framed perfectly. Great job!  :)


--Edit: Just noticed the noise (the irrelevant stuff) that creeps in when I mention something to do with computers. I will pay more attention to that.

It seems, from all the studies that are done, that an elevated mood - one of happy expectation of the possibility of adventure - is the greatest protection against illness. Perhaps it is also the one that makes one "inedible" to the Matrix? -Laura

Awesome posters! I wonder, would it be a good idea to put "SOTT.net" or "cassiopaea.org" somewhere on those, and then plaster them in random places around a city? In other words, I think the prayer of the soul could be a great addition to the SOTT flyers. Even if someone doesn't visit the site, they might just like the prayer and decide to say it - which may actually help them way more than any prayer they have been saying thus far!

Edit: Under the larger poster one could just include a bunch of normal-size papers each having the prayer on them for people to take if they wish

Good idea :)
I had made my own with only white characters on a black background, nothing artistic though :p

Thank you Stuart, these wallpapers are awesome. I especially liked the one with Perseus. It has an ascending spiral and Cassiopaea Constellation on it!  :rockon:

Thanks Stuart,
that's great.

I think it is a good reminder on the computer to use a wallpaper like these ones.
