Mine for this month. Think I'll stick to this for quite sometime. Very rarely am I pleased with the background.. this is an exception. Suits my dock and menubar.

Inverted Menubar Icons (http://www.sendspace.com/file/mjnkkx)

It doesn't specify where the inverted icons are supposed to go so I just chucked em in the Resources folder of the menu bar file that needs to be replaced. Are they supposed to go in a different place?

duh silly me, double clicking worked, thx ucsdmac. clock is still black for me too.

Since I hide my taskbar and icons, I'll just post my desktop pattern.

BTW, no I didn't just call the dock a taskbar, I'm still stuck in Vista land until there are HD4870 drivers for OS X. Until then, I'll keep on enjoying my games :D Until I have HD4870 drivers for OS X, then its darwine (or something like it) for me!

I actually posted my thread at 11:54 PM, I was meant to post it at 12:00 AM to make it October 1 :D. And to the person who replied to my original thread "And, I know you didn't have a computer next to you...Couldn't wait to get home pfffft, get in the thread started position..."...You absolute cow. I deleted a system file on my mac by mistake with SSH from my iPhone, rendering it unbootable. I am now using Boot Camp until Sat. Then I can get my external drive and Reinstall EVERYTHING. I should do that to your computer and criticize you for posting a thread 6 mins before a correct time specified my me. (End Rant :D)

Anyway. For my October: (A WINDOWS VISTA DEFAULT :(:o:mad::mad::mad::mad::eek: - I don't know how to change it :D)

When you're in a finder window.. press apple+j, an info page should pop up and you can select whatever picture you want as the background on the bottom

The calendar is a script from GeekTool.. a quick google should give you a better idea.

Awesome, thanks for the kind words, I wasn't sure at first but I'm starting to like it more (since I had to pic from about 60 simialr shots, it's hard to know which picture is "the opne")

would u happen to have any PRSs? :D

Sure do...However few of them I would consider to be wallpaper material or "artsy" by any strech. They were primarily pictures I took for to be e-mailed to customers. Also, the lens I was using sucked. Whereas the lens I use now is a 50mm prime, much sharper.

here are some pics of PRS's I took where I used to work

USS The Sullivans DDG68 (destroyer)



Aloha Macintosh Sauce,

As a member of the Fleet Reserve (22 years active), it was a pleasant surprise to come across your entry. Although I prefer aircraft carriers (USS Dwight D. Eisenhower CVN-69 was my first ship), I was also on a destroyer and they are fine ships. Fair winds and following seas.

:apple:HawaiiMacAddict

In 1982, I was in the Canadian Naval Reserve when I graduated from high school. The US Navy wanted me to enlist and then become a US Citizen. That is where I made the stupidest mistake of my life - I went to university in Canada instead.

The U.S. Navy has issued to me a U.S. Social Security number and I was ready to enlist, but I changed my mind as mentioned above. I regret that decision to this day. When I moved to the U.S. in 2002 to be with my American-born wife, that SSN was still valid but never used before by me. For that reason, the Social Security Administration promptly reissued me a new card because I was becoming a U.S. Permanent Resident. Soon, I am filing for U.S. Citizenship naturalization. I can't wait either, because I have always known my destiny is here in the U.S.

I wish I would have joined the U.S. Navy even at 32, because stupid me joined the Canadian Army at that time and got permanently disabled. Now I have to walk with a cane for the rest of my life.

Anyone who has been at sea understands this... I miss being at sea so much.

HawaiiMacAddict... I have been on many ships as well, but I have always enjoyed going on American naval ships because they are always nicer IMHO. :) The last ship I was on was the USS Reuben James. I have never been on an aircraft carrier though, but I have seen them at sea. Beautiful! :) Personally, I prefer destroyers because I have been on several of them.

What are you using for the Menubar?

Black Translucent Menu Bar (http://www.sendspace.com/file/aotjmm)

Inverted Menubar Icons (http://www.sendspace.com/file/mjnkkx)

Posted earlier in the thread. Just follow the directions in the first link, double click the menubar icons you want. I used iStat Menu for the clock and battery (unfortunately I'm not sure how to get the spotlight icon inverted). It'll be a black menubar initially, but if you go into System Preferences/Desktop & Screensaver and check/uncheck 'translucent menu bar' it'll turn it grey. I like it either way.

Whipped up in Photoshop. Not the best job I've done, but I'm happy for now with it. I'll probably smooth it out later.. Link if you want it (http://dl-client.getdropbox.com/u/64005/Mercury-Steamer.jpg)

Where to begin... there is something about your desktop I like. What is that little thing in your menu bar with the check mark by the package? Ive never seen that before.

Also where did you get all those awesome icons from? And do you actually change the icons for even your alias/shortcut links? Looks like you do.

Lastly, what are all the stacks you are using?

I can tell you that that is Dropbox. (https://www.getdropbox.com) It is an online storage space (like the iDisk) only it is 2GB for free, and I believe you can pay for more. I am pretty sure that it is out of beta now so you can just go and sign up. If not PM me, and I can send an invite.

Why use that over Mobile Me or a private FTP? Just curious. I use neither but it looks interesting.

Wow, lots of interest. I will have to look around and find my sources that all my icons came from (or see if I still have them around), I'll post back when I find the Firefox and other icons again.

And yes, the menubar icon is Dropbox. Haven't really used it yet, but downloaded it with the intention of trying it out.

It's free.

I have Mobile Me and I find myself using Drop Box, because it is faster to sync. Also I mapped a folder to it using ln -s and though I haven't tried that with MM yet it works wonderfully in my Drop Box.

I was thinking about doing the same thing for games. What do you do - make a folder somewhere on your hard drive with aliases to games or what?

Yep. I have a ~/Applications folder which has several categories, including Games. I used to have folders in the Dock for all sorts of groupings, but I never used them, so I gradually weeded them out.

EDIT: Can't find the original link to the Firefox icons, so I'm posting the files here. They're just .png's, copy and paste onto the icon.

Thanks a lot for the link and for sharing your Hope and Change icons. :D

The artist linked has a lot of nice Obama wallpapers!

Here's the wallpaper I chose from his gallery. I also downloaded the Obama Safari and Mail icons on deviantart to complete the look.

Search for Mac OS X HUD theme. I forget the actual site I got it from now, but it's around at a few places. The same theme is applied to my Force Quit dialog as well, plus at least one other thing I can't remember.
