it is just the weather widgit
the moon comes out @ night-
(do you use your computer @ nite?)
here's the desktop now- (as you can see the sun w/ light clouds)
i do have the opacity set @ 90% perhaps that is giving it some neat-ness? i donno


as for uploading your desktop
you can also use the prgm "grab" which comes w/ the computer
it works just dandy.

how do you put an image in your post where its not an attachment like king cobra, N10248, and edesignuk have?

the small preview image is a seperate smaller image - the vb code isn't making it smaller (but this can be done i think you use a [ size ] setting but not sure.

images are added by uploading to you own spacesomewhere and using this code without the spaces:
[ img ] URL OF IMAGE, HTTP .JPG ETC [ /img ]

mine are way to large,

To take a snapshot: Cmd-Shift-3, you will then get a PDF-file on your desktop. If that is to big to upload you can open it in Preview and choose File -> Export and if you choose Format: to be JPEG the resulting file should be quite small.

Then you scroll down on the "Reply to Topic" page and click on the Manage Attachements under "Attach Files" and upload the JPEG-file.

Enjoy!

Any one use the freshly squeezed software that you can put a screensaver as your wallpaper (and yes it moves just like the screensaver)?

:eek: OMG... I used to run dual 1600 by 1200 and loved it. Downgraded to 2560 by 1024 with my new setup (lcd's are expensive).

What type of monitors are you running?!

Lacie Electron 19 blue. It's Max res 1920 x 1440 @ 73Hz but i like to keep it at 85Hz. Less strain on my eyes.
Have since moved to AppleDisplay 23" x2. Will be making a new post later!
