Is your sig an April Fool's joke?
Why would you think thats a joke i would think the other ibook ive got that I havn't put in my sig would be a joke (500,384,10,CD) and i have to hold that in a certain place so the screen doesn't black out. oh but if you mean the iBook g5 thats only the machines name so that the peoples wireless internet i "borrow" dont know who it is.

What was wrong with the last April desktop thread? So what if it was a day early? You people take things way too seriously.

I used this (http://www.resexcellence.com/itunes/06/01-12_Rejoyce_Skin.zip)(direct link to .zip) theme to change it back to brushed metal :).

whats wrong with actually waiting until april to start the april desktop thread?

i know, its that everyone wants to be the one who starts it because it will make them feel special... :rolleyes: who cares who starts it, we have one every month, no one is handing out awards to the genius who says "hey, why don't we all share our desktops with one another" for the 800th time.

How about a new rule that those who start the thread have to post a desktop picture too?
What's up with not even posting a pic? WTF did you open the thread for anyway?

That has happened the last couple of times and is becoming really irritating an looks like you're just trying to push your post counts.

Thank you, its nice to see people other than crazy zealots live at MR.

Oh, and to the person eariler, I actually did post a desktop as I started it. I'm not 13, I don't need the 'fame' of starting one. Besides, its always a day eariler in Aussieland so theres really no way I could beat them to it. Go to the wasteland to see mine, I really like it.

The first desktop I had all last month to remind me to buy a new monitor. I know I need a mac, but I could really use a new monitor/tv. The second one is my desktop of April fools. A really bad stitch job using a cheapo program. I gotta reinstall Photoshop, but I'm too lazy.

Yes, it's Adium.

The list layout is "It's A Dock!". Can be downloaded here:
http://adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=xtras&xtra_id=533

The list font is Apple LiGothic Medium, 13 pt.
In the 'Spacing submenu' Spacing is set to 0, Left Margin 12, Right Margin 0, and Mockie 0.
Window Style is 'Borderless Window.
Opacity is 45%.
Auto-Resize has both checkboxes checked.

The colour scheme was originally 'Pure Milk' but I just changed the colours to match the new black background.

That should be it. Hope it helps. And thanks for the link to the dock dividers. Been looking for something like that.

I saw the F1 desktop and couldn't resist. Not much movement in this desktop but pretty cool. New Audi Diesel V10! It won in it's first outing at Homestead....12 or 24 hour race I can't remember. Cool, Audi will be promoting it, as in diesel power. They're probably gonna start pushing diesel passenger cars (hi fuel efficiency, low emissions, low/no particulate and no battery packs that are mini toxic waste dumps when they poop out) soon. One of the requirements of the race car laid down by Audi was that it be quiet and no smoke. Supposedly it will be one of the quietest race cars around. Anyway, VW and Audi along with other European manufacuturers will be touting their diesels soon. I read a story that Renault or Citroen were getting ready a diesel race car but Audi beat them to it. Audi plans on racing this at Le Mans. I can't wait! Cheershttp://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c203/zagato27/Aprildesktop.jpg

Audi has been "pushing" diesels for nearly as long as I can remember already. I guess you guys on the other side of the pond have just been left out a bit. They already make a couple of pretty extraordinary TDI engines. For example the Audi A8 4.0 TDI Quattro, with a 4.0 liter V8 diesel. And VW has a 5.0 V10 diesel available in its Touareg and Phaeton models.

Anyway, here's my desktops for this month!

Beach Pic from yesterday in Rhode Island. It was very grey out as you can see and all the foliage hasn't started growing yet. I love how the sign and fence are buried in the sand from the waves. Its a little dark, hopefully if I go next week the weather will be better and I can take some better pictures. This pic would be better if the weather was better (you could see Block Island), there were bigger waves, and if the plants were growing

Domo - kun is derived from "Domo konnichiwa" roughly meaning "Hello". He is a character made by NHK, a Japanese television station. The station would air these shorts/commercials with him and naturally, Domo became a huge craze. Yes, I admit Im a fan that owns related merchandise. :o

Used Maya and Photoshop too. Do motion graphics at work via After Effects. Was an Illustrator in my previous life (before child) Which I much prefer, but was not as consistant and only freelance.

Maya also makes my head hurt, but I try to keep it in perspective. I dont bite off more then I can chew and take small steps concentrating on specifics when learning, ie just working on modeling poly's or just working on shader nodes etc.. If you try to do it all in one bite it gets extremely confusing and the need to bash yourself over the head with a hammer becomes an option.

Heres an animation somewhat in the flavor of what you are looking for....Perhaps not as gory. Unfortunately I cant post the sound effect that goes with it:(
Also plays much smoother when not an animated gif...:mad:

Did the animation in school and now ironically, find myself working for the mouse:eek:

BTW, Nice shaders. you must teach me your rust technique!



The Mouse! :eek: Say it ain't so. Just kidding, I did some work for them last summer. The rust (like the compass image) is a photographic texture, the trick is how it applied (Color, Bump, Specular Rolloff and Reflectivity with a Triplanar Projection) then add Final Gather and an HDRI (in Mental Ray). If you want some pointers on that just PM me.

I'm sure this has been asked/answered before, but where do the bouncing ball desktops come from?


They're from the Sony Bravia LCD Tv ads that have been airing recently (in Europe anyway). You can get a bunch of cool wallpapers and images that can be used as wallpapers (like I did) from here: http://www.bravia-advert.com/downloads/

Finally put in something different then the default Mac OS X ships with. It's hard to find a good wallpaper that leaves the side clear for the icons, and doesn't have someone's name or site plastered all over it.


I agree, some people have these gorgeous women on their desktop, not sure how you could get anything done with a naked supermodel sitting on your desktop. Your one handed typing skills must be amazing! :p

Yeah Adium is trying to copy the Proteus look and feel. Proteus is far more visually advanced and polished in my opinion. If they can do it, I'll switch.

...what are you trying to get with that? Clutter has nothing to do with taking a screenshot. Unless you are talking about shift+command+3 or shift+command+4 ahh im confused.

Yeah, the guy that did the UI for Proteus before he left did a great job. I just think the customization and the features of Proteus are lacking but you're right the UI and the standard look and feel is great.
Let's hope Adium 1.0 can pull it off. :)

Alternatively, there's some very nice stuff you can download over at Max Themes. (http://www.maxthemes.com/themes/)
