A calibration chart that's been floating around the InterWeb®. It happened to be just about the right size, and I like the moire patterns it makes.

Correct, the car in that link is a 911 Turbo S. HOWEVER, if you look closely at the pictures of the Turbo S and the car you have on your desktop you'll see that the Turbo S does not have the same round headlights that the new generation 911 has (which is on your desktop). The new turbo will be coming out in a few months!

I think mfacey is right, kasei's picture is definitely a new Porsche 911. The 911 Turbo S for this new Porsche hasn't been introduced yet. Just as mfacey pointed out, under Porsche 911 Turbo S you'll find the "old" 911 model, without the round headlights.

ok, well as im the only one not doing it (and it looks cool :) ) how do you change your icons and make adium look like that...

Don't know about Adium but here's a little tutorial from pixelgirlpresents (www.pixelgirlpresents.com) on how to change your icons.

Here are quick step by step instructions about how to change your icons on your mac.


Once you download the set you want to use, your computer will unstuff or unzip it. (You must have stuffit expander for this to happen- It is built into OS X but is free if you don't have it).

To apply the icon that you like to a file, folder, or application, simply click on the icon you would like to use (do not double-click. Select 'Get Info' from the File menu at the top of your desktop (or press command-i).

A information window will open. Click on the icon that appears in this window (in the upper left corner) and select 'Copy' from the Edit menu (or press command-c).

Next, select the file, folder, or application icon you would like to change. Select 'Get Info' from the File menu at the top of your desktop (or press command-i).

Click on the icon displayed within this window and chose 'Paste' from the Edit menu (or press command-v). The icon should now be updated and you can close the window.
This should work for any Finder object for which you have permission to change.

Finder issues: Sometimes you will copy and paste, but the icon doesn't change. If this happens, simply go to your apple menu at the top of your desktop and select "force quit." A list will pop up and select the Finder. Then click on the "relaunch" button. That should solve your problem.

Click on the apple button in your menu bar on the top left of screen, scroll down to Dock and select dock preferences. Change settings from there! :) You can also achieve the same thing by going through System Preferences directly.

Oooh, thanks! I tried it and it worked. This is what I had thought, and tried originally, but I guess there must've been a missing bracket or typo or something. Not to be too too off-topic, but does the system this board runs on support some kind of WIDTH element in the IMG tag or something to downsize an image for display? The one I've used on other boards that use a similar coding system (width = 200 or somesuch, inside the IMG tag) doesn't work here.

Deefuzz,

A friend from my old technical class scanned it, gave me the comic on CD page by page in Beautiful pristine images.

The image is shrunk quite a bit, but it comes from Superman "Kingdom Come" comic book. Oddly, enough the dedication was for Christopher when he was paralized, and it scarily is fitting for his passing.

The artwork is excellent. If you want, pm me, I'll email you the image if you like.
Also got another desktop later I'll post from another comic Green Arrow "The Longbow Hunters" - with an archer that has an incredible tattoo.

Heres one, maybe an old idea, but its a folder of solid colors files that is set up to gradually change into each other by setting the "change picture" option to "every minute" or "every 5 seconds".

Of course this is pretty simple, but I thought I wasted enough time setting these 30 files up!
