A Silver Mount Zion fan. Do you listen to any Godspeed or DoMakeSayThink as well?

Also. . . I have to agree with you on Grado headphones . . . other than when you buy them you have to re-import all your music to get rid of all the exposed artefacts that become blatantly obvious.

what piracy habbits? just because someone has a file called halo.dmg or a Limewire shortcut sitting on their desktop doesn't make them a pirate. who cares anyway? it's not like anyone's going to do anything about it... :rolleyes:

well, a new one for me. had to try out XiDG-Albook, and i didn't think i'd like it but it's actually a pretty good theme. also i change the icons to MINIUM° system icons and i'm using the CALABI folder as my standard folder icon. :D just made the desktop from some of Hyung Tae-Kim's artwork he did for Magna Carta and War Of Genesis 3.

THAT'S why it's taboo. Whether the product is a two-ton hunk of metal and glass or the result of millions of man-hours of work is irrelevant. Theft is theft.

I use backlight 2 to have my screensaver as my desktop background. other programs are butler, meteorologist and adium x using the pollux.alfheim design with morpheus black colour scheme. The icon pack is called 'Litho System' and is available from the iconfactory.

Solitaire XL is running in the background and people, that is the best solitaire game ever! :D

Oh almost forgot! my 1GB ipod shuffle 'Q37' is also plugged in!

It tends to be. It's more for show than anything else. It's not really something that you want to have going while you're working, especially if you're running some heavy stuff.

The left monitor is a 19" running at 1280 X 1024 and the right is a 15"(that I found by the dumpster one day) running 1024 X 768, hence the dead space.
But atleast I've now got a place to run adium and iTunes. hehe. :cool:

It is Windows XP, yeah. With no spyware, no viruses, and virtually crash-free (except for the latest GAIM build, for some reason it crashes about 50% of the time when i sign off). I originally wanted to post a screen shot of my OS X desktop on the same machine, but for some reason my network bridge wasn't working this morning, so I couldn't get the image out of OSX onto the web.

Killuminati--Vancouver? That's awesome, I might be living there for a large part of next year! Way off topic, but any good restaurant recommendations around Robson? I'll be there for a week next month for some art exhibits, and I'd like an "insider" view. If it's not inconvenient, a PM would be great!

My theme is PM2k5. Used Shapeshifter.
I used Transparent Dock for my dock.
I used iCan for that big trash can.
I used Candybar and Pixadex to change my icons.
And that little minimized Firefox window is thanks to WindowShade.
And I downloaded the IcyMilk format for Adium to make it look like that.

Menubar:
- MenuCalendarClock
- Norton Systemworks
- NetBarrier
- Slim Battery
- Adium
- etc

I'd love for the flash to work on the desktop but I don't know how.
