The Tech Deck

The Tech Deck Retro Desktop Wallpaper

Because everyone needs something as rad as this as their desktop wallpaper.

If you're interested in how I made it, I created it in Adobe Illustrator following the gist of this tutorial:

Create a 1980s Inspired 3D Text Effect in Photoshop

Since I wasn't using Photoshop, none of the actual instructions apply to AI, but you can fake it till you make it like I did. Some things are significantly easier in Illustrator and somethings are impossible, so YMMV.

And yes, that solar flare is ridonculous.

About this blog

Technology stuff, Game reviews, poorly photoshopped images and offbeat humor from the geeks who run and spend too much time on Imgur/Reddit.

Send your nerd stuff to and we might write about it. Or we might poorly photoshop it and mock it mercilessly, as all good nerds are wont.
