You should switch the classic Windows theme. It's old school -- me gusta.

In other news, it's not actually May. Interesting.

Added yet another one to the rotation: Just got myself a new phone to replace my old and less and less reliable Sony Ericsson T68i. Really wanted a clam shell phone this time round, since I keep the phone in my trouser pockets most of the time, and the Z520i had all the features I wanted at a reasonable price. Still waiting for my old number to be ported to the SIM card for the new phone, so I cannot use it until this Wednesday, but I really look forward to replacing the T68i. It has been a very good phone for many years, but it just has too many bugs now...

Also I just made the illustration on 'iEat' desktop, I added a couple of months ago, a bit larger. This has become one of my favourites, strangely enough... ;)

Agreed.
But maybe I'm a straight girl, so I don't really have quite the same perspective. :p
But still... guys... It's really interesting being really good friends with them... I have really open relationships with a lot of them and it.... widens horizons, is that a nice way to put it? :p
In other words, I would be such a prude if I didn't have guy friends.

There is a certain difference to this as opposed to starting it a couple of days early... :p

http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/9362/smallpicture17ln.jpg

A pure F1 Fans, Man's, Racer the best driver that ever lived!
At a time when power-assist, pre-revlimiter shifting via the on-board cpu, pre-braking that has made F1 safer; Ayrton was a PURE driver no cpu assisted needed. He was the master of Monaco.

I believe he still has the most consecutive pole positions, or is it the MOST pole positions EVER!

Schumacher is great, but Ayrton rules, besides he has more class than Michael. On the day he died, another driver - a rookie in his 1st season - died during qualifying. Ayrton barely new him; but out of pure commadre and the heart that he has he - UN-announced - driven the race with the national flag of that rookie. Poetic and foreboding.

Also remember it took Michael 2-3 seasons to finally beat Ayrton in a race.

Being a moderator on pinkfloydonline.com, (although I've been slacking of late due to too many annoying teens posting), I really appreciate that.

Mine was to be one of the many pictures I took in Dublin the weekend before last, but on Saturday we decided to bottle our home brew, (named Black Widower), and during the fun I decided to take a picture of my good Malaysian friend Nick and a bottle of the stuff, (for interest, we measure this brew at about 8.1%).

When I looked at the picture taken, it seemed to have a rainbow stemming from the beer bottle cap for some reason. I promised there it would be my May desktop and thus, (sorry about file size, still am getting to grips with posting my screen grabs decently):

I don't watch Hollyoaks long time actually since I did, but did the brunette get ditched then? "Hollyoaks" (1995) TV Series .... Debbie Dean (2002-2004)

Though she looks like a right tart on google.

Thanks for trying.

Here are my entries. I couldn't really decide, my backgrounds change quite regularly, I can never seem to find one that I can absolutely settle on.

The first one is one I have made myself quite poorly in photoshop, with just a Macbook Pro and iMac.

The second one is my other current choice of the Enterprise NX-01.

Just not sure!

That looks like UNO, but your menubar doesn't do "that thing" that UNO does on mine (makes the Apple and the Spotlight icons smaller). There an option to turn that off somewhere that I just happened to miss? It really bugs me.

He might be using a shapeshifter theme/dlta called smooth stripes.

...on mine...my corners on the finder windows are square, but on icloud's its rounded. so im guessing its a theme & not UNO.

1) Icons - The Icons are a custom set created from the Snow.e Icons created by Rad.E8 studios @: Snow.e Icons (http://www.rad-e8.com/downloads/icn/snowe/). From there I used various Icons from iToolbar 1 & 2, World of Aqua, and various other icons, to create my own variant of the icons. If you want more specifics about the icon set, please PM me.

http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/9686/desktop5dc.png http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/5255/applecube8qb.png

Here are 2 of the icons that we're requested, one recently, and one some time ago. The "apple cube" belongs to an icons set that has since been removed from Interfacelift.com, so I decided that I would post it. I do not have the completed set of these icons however. The other is a desktop icon I created, both these files are .PNG, for the taking.

2)Wallpaper -

The name of the wallpaper is West Dune Desert by Varis from Deviantart.com

For those asking about similar Icons to download, May I recommend the Windows Vista Beta 2 Wallpapers. Simple and colorful!
I posted 3 Samples below:

Nice desktop, how did you change the icon to your Windows partition? I can't seem to change mine the normal way.

I bet your using NTFS?

You could use CandyBar to change the default system drive icon to a windows icon and then manually change your OS X drive. Thats what I did before I reformatted to FAT32.

I'm Using SmoothStripes from Maxthemes.com

Tried the UNO thing...as soon as I saw the spotlight and Apple get smaller, it was out the door with uno

Does SmoothStripes work the same way that UNO and Iridium work? That is, do they just replace the resource files and various other graphics? Or does it work more like ShapeShifter which is *always* running and changing thing in memory?

Here is mine (2 screens with the left side vertical). Normally the left screen is at 1050x1680 and the right at 1680x1050... shrunk down in the screen shot of course... I just have it swap random images once a day... this just happened to be what was on today.

Changing the resource files...so be careful when using it

Did you take that one? Happen to have a larger version? Something like 1440x900 or so?
I didn't take the photo. Somebody here had posted it a few months (years?) ago, and that is the original size. It looks fine on my 22" CRT monitor at 1600x1200, but for a widescreen display you'll probably have to crop it a bit.

You can't get rid of it without 'hacking' because it is always on/open.

For me all you have to do is drag it out. No "hacking" is required.

Okay - here we go :)

To the best of my knowledge, there is no free (or otherwise for that matter) alternative for CandyBar. Without any program at all, you can change a lot of the icons on your computer, but CandyBar allows you (**really**) easy access to some of the more buried icons in the system (think, the Finder icon in the Dock). So, if you're looking for something simple, like, changing the icon for you HD, PM me...if you're looking for something deeper in the system, just shell out the $13 for the program - it's well worth it.

As for themeing programs - in general, I recommend you stay away from programs like ShapeShifter. Programs like that have processes that run ALL THE TIME and skin programs as they sit in RAM. In theory these are "safer," as they don't edit system files, but they come at a performance hit (sometimes a large one).

If you really want to theme OS X, I recommend one of the following (a simple google search should bring up all of them, but I'll link to them anyway):
- Iridium (white-ish, plasticy, overall nice) http://sagefire.org/files/iridium/Iridium.dmg
- UNO (number of options, very nice) http://gui.interacto.net/
- SmoothStripes (the one I just started using, I LOVE it) http://www.maxthemes.com/themes/downloads/tiger/SmoothStripes%205.1.2.zip

Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, PM me. I'll happily answer whatever you throw at me (if I can answer it).

Here's my guesses for your questions.
1. Probably using CandyBar
2. Looks like Adium to me

As for the iCal reminder, no idea.

3. I use the Yahoo Widgets (http://widgets.yahoo.com) - previously Konfabulator - since I prefer my widgets on the desktop rather than Dashboard. I use Bye Bye Dashboard to turn Apple's widgets off.

I find the easiest way to convert images to icons (as long as no modification needs to be done), is to just use pic2icon (http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Graphics/PicIcon.shtml). Just drag your picture, in this case that apple cube png file onto the pic2icon app (make sure to set anti-aliasing to high) and it will convert the image to an icon file. You can now just copy the converted picture/icon file and paste it into the info of whatever you want to change like normal.

<sarcasm> Yeah, it's terrible that a band that people like got popular so more people can listen to and enjoy them. Not to mention they get more recognition and (hopefully) more compensation for all the hardwork they've put in over the years. That really is a shame. </sarcasm>

CandyBar can edit this kind of stuff, but you can find the finder icon at
/System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents. Here you can also find the trash icon, amongst other dock stuff.

Just so you know it doesn't create a new file, it modifies the picture itself, so that now the picture you converted is now the icon. So now get info of the now modified picture and copy its icon like you would normally.
