Welcome to the July MacRumors Desktop Thread.

This is mine for July! -

|July|
Tried to make it simple yet elegant since ill be doing a lot of work off it for the summer. I needed something that was useable yet still very simple and organized. As non-intrusive as possible.

Hope you enjoy.

Here is my nautical themed desktop. (http://scottkellymusic.com/mike/random/july-macrum.jpg)

I have taken a huge interest in sailing all of a sudden. I am going this weekend (last weekend there wasn't wind) to a race that a local club puts on. The ship captains always like having extra hands to help out. Can't wait.

Honestly I'm quite partial to the default blue mac splash background, but never the less, here is what I have, today at least...
So am I. I hardly ever change it from that.

Well, I'm not there yet. I only just bought the place.

Plus, I don't have Photoshop so no arrows, and I swear that puts me in a very small group on these boards - maybe just the one. :(

So, my new place is in this section but to be honest I'm not fully sure I want to be all that much more specific. I suppose it doesn't really matter since I'm not living there anyway.

Oh yeah, and it's not the futuristic looking one. ;)

The first two I've actually had since I finally got around to seeing ROTS a couple of weeks ago. There are some minor Episode III spoilers if you enlarge the first 2. The last one is my current one. I finally had the desktop cleared of all the Firefox updaters and now I have all of this white space. Felt I needed a few more icons in that white space. Got SNK on the brain this week.
Still awaiting those "great PowerPC products in the pipline" Steve. Might as well spend my money on bluetooth devices for my future Mactel now.

You can either host the image at ImageShack (http://www.imageshack.us) or you have to reduce the quality and post it as an attachment. The former is preferred for larger shots because:
- It doesn't force people on smaller screens to scroll sideways to see your desktop
- Degrading quality on larger images is much more noticable.

If you just want to share a quick shot for a laugh, or have a small screen (I have a 12" (1024x768) and compressing the jpg is good enough) then just attach the image, otherwise host it at ImageShack which is free if you are wondering ;)

Not a problem.

If you check the properties on the images you can see where they are being linked from (ie where they are being hosted) and can therefore see what people use. I recommended Imageshack because it is free and easy, direct thumbnail linking is nice, etc etc. A lot of people use their .mac accounts, personal websites, etc however since I don't currently have access to my website I have to use Imageshack too, which if you have an awesome background that people want, using Imageshack can spare your site some bandwidth perhaps ;)

At this website there are some great photos of birds in flight that I've used as my desktop. Most of them are unbelievably beautiful and many are high resolution. Would post one here, but its just easier to visit the link.

if you really want to see Rajasthan, look into this train tour called "Palace on wheels"

its amungst the top 10 train rides in the world. think of it as a cruize but on land.

check it out



oops! Sorry, It was the bold use of blue that confused me.
For a moment while I was posting the original, I did think that could be india instead of Morrocco. The people seemed to be more from India in the picture.

Ill have to do a little research on Rajasthan, seems like another cool place

I can just imagine at the Fed Challenge competition, prepping my PowerBook for the powerpoint presentation:
KT's powerbook being projected on the screen: *presentation*
kt: "Uh oh! Powerpoint has crashed even though it is running on a beautiful PowerBook! "
Wall projector: 40-foot picture of Alan Greenspan.
ROCK!!!

Is it just me or is there anyone else that prefers just a plain darker background? But, in the spirit of the thread and wanting to join in, I made up my July desktop for a full five minutes.

Yes I like darker desktops as well. This one has been mine for a bit.

It is the inside of Richard Burns Impreza WRC car from when he was a Subaru driver from 1999 through 2001 (I'm not sure the exact year). But I do have an Impreza WRX.

Here's a couple pictures of it at a ralllycross a two weekends ago:

If it is his car, I hope it's strictly a rally car. Subaru's are nice, but I still hate seeing 'pimped out' cars on the road, they look so ridiculous. I don't think I've ever seen one that looks nice.

edit:: ok, its a rally car.. Your Subaru looks very nice.

Yeah, my car is stock. If I ever do any changes they will just be things to make it rally faster, but for now the car is plenty fast.

The Folder Icons are the Samui Pinstripe set from the Samui Icon suite. Get them HERE (http://bz.seph.ws/Samui/Samui%201.1%20(icons%20only).dmg).

I have used a couple of different Application Icons from the Elements Icon Suite as well as the aforementioned Samui icon set.
