United States
My name is Matthew Smith
I am 6 feet tall
I'm from Yuba City California, USA.
I'm only 28 years old.

I like to know how to change and to change everything about the Windows OS look: (most I know already but some I don't yet)Task panes, clock, themes of all kinds, icons, tokens, navigation buttons, boot screen, logon screens, system properties logos, system information, modifying a computer in any any all ways to personalize it.

I have a B.A. in Information & Technology with specialties in Security and networking. CompTIA A+, Security+, and Network+ certified. I've been into computers since I was 9.

I've built computers for a living, and in competition, for the last 7 years now. I can do almost anything with/to computers. I have the world record for the fastest AMD Phenom II X4 and X6(6.650GHz/6.200Ghz and Intel core i7(5.995ghz)(Futuremark 3DMark Vantage, PCMark Vantage and 3DMark 11, tests).
If you want a pro gaming computer, or any computer, let me know and we can get something started.

Though of sharing my poetry I wrote years ago. Hope ya like it.

Life in this world is so easily shattered. Be it in an untimely death or a heart broken matter. We learn everyday to hate "being" more and more a worthless bastinado-emotional's relentless whore. The wicked games begin, a tourtre born within a soul and then beg for a response from this realm of sin ardency is satin's delight. Furtively, shadows crawl to turn your hearts as black as night, an evil piercing cal.
Me, I'm a cynic, I turn my back on you. Although you say you won't, you know you would, too. There's only one you need, two's only a nuisance, live your life for you, and morally fuck the rest.
Who is more important? Honestly, tell me, who. I say it's me, to you it's only you!
So who's right and who's wrong? Who shall decide? "None!" Saith Satin to us all, the reaper doesn't take sides.
A naive promise given, you said "it's me you need", but when asked your final choice, you choose apostasy . Pledging your undying love, falsely giving your loyalty, your action belied your words, internal infidelity.
"To live is to ecstasy", it's life's greatest pretender. Then you learn the truth. Despair compels our hearts surrender.
Tortured while we die...resembling a slowly...fading...ember.

Hey bud, look here: [link]
These are the main images for the start-screen backgrounds in Win8. In imageres.dll. These can be
modified, replaced, etc., or maybe just one or a few, depending on how many custom backgrounds you'd want to add.

Thanks, nice. I saw that yesterday. Now that I know what file, I've been messing with in in VM. I found a little tutorial as well this morning. I haven't tried it yet.
