XPert Assistant by JohnSu XPert Assistant by JohnSu
To all my computer-dwelling brethren out there.

I was bored out of my mind and wandering through people's deviations when I noticed that yes! it is indeed possible to draw pictures on top of other pictures! And so I set about to try something like that.

Of course, as with most of my impulsive ideas, I had no idea what I was trying to do. Then I thought, hey - it might be pretty cool to do something with the common desktop interface! And so I ran through all my program folders looking for something interesting to work with. I found Magnifier in Accessibility, and thought to put ants in there with one of them screaming "Don't do it! You'll kill us all!" But then again, I really don't like drawing bugs.

So I had to back out a bit and then found what you currently see. Originally I was going to put myself there ready to click the item, for who else would be on my desktop but me? But really, I'm not into this kind of stuff, so it felt kind of weird. But my user profile was already on the Log Off command, so what could I do? Doctor it, of course. I picked a font as like the original as I could, and replaced myself with what I believed to be an accurate representation of the male computer-using demography - a shaggy lad in need of a haircut and a change of clothes.

Of course, it wouldn't make sense for him to be there just by himself, so I decided to add to the cast. I forget how, but I came to the decision to use the ol' Office Assistant (you know - the one we always tell to hide himself), Clippit. With some help from wikipedia screenshots, I got a handsome lookalike in there in no time. Also thanks to wikipedia, I learned that the Office Assistant (or TFC, as Mr. Gates puts it) is no longer active by default. I love you, wikipedia.

Someone probably already said this, but the "Search for People" button actually lets you search your Address book, if you have one on the computer.

I don't hate Clippy, nor any of the other Office Assistants, but I do think this picture is pretty funny. Really, what's wrong with them? They're cleverly-designed characters (in my opinion).

When I was using Win98, I always searched for a way to turn Clippy into an animated worm. Or at least a distinctively female octomonster with unconventionally large breasts.

Thankfully, thanks to the thankful supply of programmers, ero artists and animators out there, that dillema could easily be solved nowadays.

I don't think he's actually supposed to be a little boy, but just a chibi version of the artist. ^^ Did you read what the paperclip is saying, though? And what the chibi is clicking, because if you do, then you might get it a little better.

:D

Uh, well the chibi guy is trying to search for people [cuz he's lonely] but the paperclip is telling him that it won't work.. basically....
