It's poutine! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poutine) Some horrid food those crazy Canadians eat.

French fries or should I say Belgische frieten ought to be eaten with mayonaise, that's the way I learned to eat them. My kids eat them with ketchup and I think they have a real bad taste... ;)

Or with Mayonnaise and Peanut Sauce. :)

"Patatje Oorlog" (though I'm very much against the name; "War Fries") is delicious.

I like Hopper as well, but "NightHawks" is not one of my favorite paintings of his. I guess the numerous parodies of this work have spoiled it for me. My favorite of these has to be the one by The Simpsons.

Ah dude, you're mistaken. I am from Québec, Canada and I can ensure you that absolutely no Canadians eat poutine. Only Québecers. We, Québecers are distinct from Canadians because we speak French. And we eat poutine ! :D BTW, poutine, although it is not good at all for your health or for your weight, is just sooooo good ! :p

Hells yeah! I haven't had real poutine in years. That picture is making me hungry now.

Actually, my brother kinda forced me to give him one of the photos I took when you first told me how to do HDR and had it printed for his wife (16"x20").

It started out like this first one and ended like the second. Not too bad. I'm sure I could easily sell it, if I only knew where to go to do that. :o

The new CTS = one of the best looking American cars ever. Love it. I think it deserved the Motor Trend Car Of The Year award it just recently won. I totally expected the new Accord to win and was pretty shocked to see the winner when my Motor Trend arrived. Hopefully GM will continue to improve the quality/design/performance of their vehicles. The new CTS and Malibu are both huge improvements.

The new CTS and Malibu are both huge improvements.

The new CTS is a huge improvement over the previous model. I didn't like the '03-'07 model at first; looks awkward from some angles. However, I instantly loved the '08. The modern version of the '59 Cadillac. The interior is absolutely gorgeous and can easily compete with the best the Germans has to offer. As for the Accord, eh, the exterior is beautiful but the interior has way too many buttons IMO. I like simpler interiors, like the '08 Camry has.

The new CTS pretty much makes the '08 STS obsolete unless you absolutely need the Northstar. However, that engine is going away in '09 to make way for GM's new Ultra V8. It's about time; the Northstar is a 15 year old engine and while it's had a great run, needs to be replaced with something more powerful to compete with BMW and Mercedes-Benz. I still like the STS though. However, i'm more a fan of the Seville ('98-'04).

It's about time; the Northstar is a 15 year old engine and while it's had a great run, needs to be replaced with something more powerful to compete with BMW and Mercedes-Benz. I still like the STS though. However, i'm more a fan of the Seville ('98-'04).

Hell, the new Direct-Injection V6 makes almost as much HP as the Northstar. :eek:

The Northstar is a good engine, but it definitely needs more power.

I like the new Accord, but the design seems a bit awkward from some angles. It'll probably grow on me, though. The new CTS is definitely better looking, IMO.

I really like the new Camry SE. Never thought I'd see a Camry run 0-60 in 5.8 seconds. :eek:

I actually read that the Direct Injection engine has less horsepower than it can put out. It can supposedly put out 330hp! :eek:

As for the Accord, I think Honda went too far with the interior. They basically took a Civic and made it more luxurious. Ugh, I hate the Civic. The Accord interior, is not much better.

The new Camry, I love them. They are good looking cars; but the quality that made Toyota famous is not there. The interior looks cheaper than my Gen 4.5 2000 LE. Plus, the panel gaps look more Chevy-like than a $25k Toyota. However, the car is getting a refresh in '09 or '10. That should solve all the issues.

I've heard that Toyota's quality has been going downhill a lot lately. That sucks. :(

It really disappoints me, since that was one of the things that made them so appealing. Nice, relatively cheap, great quality and reliability. I don't want to see 'em go down the GM path. If they do, I'm afraid we'll see a Corolla with an interior comparable to a 2003 Cavalier. Cheap. :mad:

The new CTS = one of the best looking American cars ever. Love it. I think it deserved the Motor Trend Car Of The Year award it just recently won. I totally expected the new Accord to win and was pretty shocked to see the winner when my Motor Trend arrived. Hopefully GM will continue to improve the quality/design/performance of their vehicles. The new CTS and Malibu are both huge improvements.

We almost bought a '92 or so STS when I was a kid. I wanted it so bad, but my Dad didn't really have that good of credit back then. If I'm not mistaken, it was the first year of the Northstar. I believe it was '92 or '93?

Good luck getting your STS and be sure to post pics if you do!

'93 was the first year for the Northstar. Debuted on the 2-door Cadillac Allante (anybody remember that car?) and came on the Seville STS as standard equipment. The engine is amazing, but has had a few share of issues. They are expensive to maintain and you are lucky to find one that never needs to be touched. As for my Seville STS, here are the pictures of the one i want (I also work at the dealer where it's located)

Right-Click on the .png file created - and open with Preview. In Preview - File - Save As... Select .jpg - and the "quality" slider will change the file size (and quality obviously) You can also crop and what not in Preview.

no, mandriva is my only choice on my old laptop, who is 5 years old, for any laptop from past two years, I still recommend Ubuntu (or pclinuxOS gnome, if they can make a good one, lol)

Mandriva has too many stuff you need to install manually, not very friendly, and you have to go online to find more repo. altho it indeed runs much faster on my old machine.

Ubuntu, AFAIK, has the best font, easiest for new linux users, relatively abundant repo by default. and widest support from other companies (skype, etc).

Request here.

Can anyone who is proficient with Photoshop create the wallpaper on this iMac from the recent Apple ad

using the Aurora wallpaper and text from the orange wallpaper?. Would also be cool if the text was silver to kinda match the Aluminium with a slightly reduced font.

My latest desktop, almost makes me wish I had a black MacBook instead of white. Almost.

Do you have a link to this?

EDIT: Never mind found out that you posted the link on page 11. That is awesome. Can't believe you did that yourself.

No Photoshop needed. Done with preview, Im sure someone can make it better.

I kinda like the Mandriva Linux 2008, but I do miss the ease-of-use of APT you have on Debian or Ubuntu. So I usually end up going back to Ubuntu, too. edit: not on my macs though :-)

man, some pretty cool stuff on here, one guy made his dock all deadly, other people made their menu bar all weird, some people hid the reflectiveness on their docks, and i also saw a windows desktop, which was quite...uhh, weird, but nice, some neat stuff, too much neat stuff AND questions, i ended up quoting over 40 posts, i said forget it. I just gotta ask, how do you make your HD a picture of your computer, and put play/pause buttons on the menu? and do all those other weird gems, its reminding me of themes on windows, is there a site i can go to? anyways right now i have a picture of my Egyptian Mau cat, she's a little over a year old, we had her ever since she was 12 weeks old, i was recently looking back at her baby pictures, very cute. but i do have to recommend going to visualparadox.com for desktop pictures, they have the best!!!! i put an example in the attachment

i'd take it without the text just for the pattern if you can make the patterns the main thing about the image i.e make them stand out like the text. Looks good btw

I assume your talking about mine? Yes, I can make it without the text, it's just a Photoshop brush so I could possibly do the brush a little lighter to make it stand out. Do you still want the white bit in the middle in there also?

How about every time we post a screenshot of our desktop, we post a link to the original wallpaper. It just kind of saves everyone the trouble of asking for it.

THANK YOU! Definitely seconded!! Except all of you probably have my wallpaper, just flip it around. :)
