Re: Steve Ballman is ...

My votes are:

#1 - Hanni-ball
#2 - Dr. Evilball!
#3 - Ernst Stavro Bloball!

However, I would consider #2 and #3 to be almost tied for second place. Between those three, they capture the essence of Balmerness. The picture in Hanni-ball would also make a great theme for spoof Bing or Windows Phone 7 Series 7 Phone ads if you took the direct film references out of it. It has enough "crazy evil Balmer" look to it to stand on its own even if you'd never heard of the film.

What I hate to think about though is that you must have a pretty big stash of Balmer fan photos to have come up with the right selection of angles and expressions for these. Collecting those will have unhinged your mind if it wasn't that way already.

Overall though, A-1! These are the best GIMPs that I can recall seeing here!

Re: Steve Ballman is ...

Thanks mg6 smile

I think I've had a particular dislike for The Ball-man that dates back to the mid 90s -- long before I'd used Linux.
At the time there was an excellent programmers publication called .EXE Magazine and for some reason they carried an interview with this guy. He came across as exceptionally arrogant, and the epitome of the ugly capitalist. One question was "What percentage of the Windows application market would you be satisfied with?" The Ball-man's reply was of course "100%", and if he was being ironic, it wasn't conveyed in the article.

I don't have a big stash of fan pics (shudder!), just what the staff let me download here in The Elizabeth Arkham Asylum for the Criminally Insane, between my therapy sessions.

Anyway before they put me back in my padded cell, here is the Ball-man as  ...

So, what if Steve had never met Bill...?

Well I'm sure he would still have risen to a position of authority.

I'm guessing he would have had rather more leisure time. Meet Cap'n Sweatpants
