Are there any Women using Apple computers? - im surprised at the number of pornographic desktops on here.

Pornographic desktops? Whatever do you mean? If you are referring to having a female face and body as a background, well I guess so, but I never actually put pornography up as my background, too tasteless in my opinion.

I change my background countless times a month, probably weekly, potentially daily if i feel so inclined. I hope desktops of females don't offend females, that isn't what this single block is trying to do, believe me :o

I agree. I dont consider that Porno, if it was I think all those post would be gone.

Very nice, I love that series. I just got done mentioning that one in the anime thread as well. I love cute girls with guns, something wrong with that I'm sure, but I still love it :D

Did you buy the boxset watching off of DVD or are they airing them on Cartoon Network or something? I haven't seen an ep on television in ages, perhaps never and my mind is crazy atm, but I haven't saved up for the set yet....they are usually expensive and I just quit looking recently as funds are lacking in many areas of life :(

I've always wanted a spanned desktop. I have my iBook connected to a 17" display using "the hack" but I haven't found any... does anybody have a good place to get them??

Here, in US they are known as Pontiac GTO, which they are on that desktop. They have little changes in styling but it is basically the same car.

Here is my screenshot. The background is a photo I took during one of my recent dives in my local area. As the water was full of sediment, the shot didnt turn out as good as i expected. Therefore, using Apple's Core Image Fun House, I added the glass distortion to give it a 'cool' look!

btw: how do you guys get the image <244.1kb but still manage to keep the quality and the size???

Pontiac GTO.

True, that was clearly a GTO however if you are from down-under, it is the Holden. They are essentially the same car, save for the gas-tank relocation and the resulting smaller trunk-space....silly American safety laws :rolleyes:

Canon Digital Ixus 50 (known as the Powershot SD400 Stateside).

Awesome, link to that one please?

Original photo is about 2.5MB and compressing it loses way too much detail if compressed to get under the 100kb MR limit or the 1MB imagevenue limit - I won't resize cos you might have a 30" display. :)

So drop me a PM with your email addy if you want the shot and I'll get it to you, or just tell me what size you want.

jeff francoeur for all you baseball fans out there just watch hes going to be rookie of the yearNo way...too few games with too many good candidates...if he continues his slide and finishes with an avg in the .330 range, then I think you'll see Willy Taveras of Houston win for sure.

That said...I like your desktop :)

Yessir, I scanned those myself... I love the picture, it's from the cover of a version of Candide. In any case I have the high quality PSD which is about 30 mb's if you'd like it, or I can upload just the globe part so you can do whatever you please with it. :)
