|damn i havent used winamp in like 10 years|
|Needs more Caleb Scofield.|
|sic picture...is that a nebula?|
|nobody uses winamp anymore get with the times man|
|Excuse me but I still use WinAmp. It's the only thing worth using if you have intelligence. For example, I have customized my WinAmp to my exact specification and requirements, which include a myriad of plugins, which enhance my listening experience. Commercial junk like iTunes and WMP is just a waste of time in my opinion.|
And yes his picture is a nebula, it's the "Ring Nebula." The central star is a white dwarf, about the size of our Earth, but it was originally much, much larger. In the final stages of its life, it turned into a red giant, where it then shed its outer layers, then finally collapsing into the tiny dense star at the center.
|props for 9; 6 rules of course|
|nah dude i thought it was the helix nebula|
|WMP is terrible and I will not support apple.|
I hate the itunes interface.
The avatar is a doctored photo of a nebula called "The Eye of God."
|Yep sorry. My mistake, I've been teaching astronomy for five years now, I should have seen that one. I get the two confused quite regularly it seems. The Ring and Helix nebula can look strikingly similar in HST photos, but in a normal telescope they look completely different. The Helix is really hard to view, due to its lack of surface magnitude density. It is known rarely at the Eye of God. But the principle remains the same. The ring and Helix nebula both have a white dwarf at their center.|
The photo isn't "doctored" at all. It's in true colour, from the Hubble Space Telescope.
|Eh close enough. :D|
