this one, http://img48.exs.cx/img48/3301/untitled550.jpg and this one: http://img79.exs.cx/img79/8639/blissufosc.jpg
not sure which, i switch about once a day cause i dont know which i like more. yeah, it's a crappy photoshop job on the 2nd one but i dont technically owna copy yet. plus their windows xp :(
btw, using all the skinning and the dock and everything makes my hard drive spin up constantly, the fan blow full blast all the time, makes the thing scorch my lap and gets literally about 35-40 min of battery life. all of which ive concluded can be attributed to not enough ram and crappy integrated gfx
edit: i cant see inline images in my browser for some reason (firefox 0.9 on winxp). i wonder why not... edit x2: found the solution, i had selected "show images only from originating website" or something like that in a preference pane

my nice clean new desktop on my newly formatted powerbook g4...

i tell you, 2gb ram makes it soooo much easier to run loads of apps in the background!

the picture is from sunshine village, near banff, canada. two years ago. skiing for 3 months. fun!

see that big cliff, on the left side (in the shade) of the peak nearest the right? i snowbladed down that, i did. me. oooh the memories.

next month i'm for putting up the pic of me mid-fall on the world's highest bungee jump (220m) in south africa..
