Not actually my December desktop, but my HD crashed and my desktop isn't as pretty right now. Sorry for the bad quality, but I can't exactly take another snap.

I'm not actually a new member... can't log into my other account and hotmail won't let me receive the password request email.

How about using "Grab" instead? It'll save the image as a TIFF. You can then convert the file type using Graphic Converter (or Photoshop, or what have you). If you are very haxor, you can do "Attach a Folder Action" to your desktop, so that it automatically converts TIFFs to JPEGs and saves a copy, without you having to do a thing (I don't know much about "Attach a Folder Action," only that I discovered it accidently the other day and it is pretty darn cool).

I never understand why people convert their screenshots in graphhics converter or photoshop. It seems like more work than needed. Just export it to jpeg right in preview. Just make sure the target size is 102400 bytes.

Hell, I dont even know what they're called!

Most people run Konfabulator (http://www.konfabulator.com/) for their stuff. But I just use three things: MkConsole (http://www.mulle-kybernetik.com/software/MkConsole/) (lower left), AquaMon (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/7583) (lower right), and Kotoba (http://www.kung-foo.tv/kotoba/) (top).

In my menu bar I also have (from left to right) Meteorologist (http://heat-meteo.sourceforge.net/), SMARTreporter (http://homepage.mac.com/julianmayer/) (my hard drive has been making some funny noises, anybody else with a G5 whos is?), MacBiff (http://www.forkit.org/macbiff/), MenuMeters (http://www.ragingmenace.com/software/menumeters/), and the rest are standard apple menu items.

Sorry, genuinely can't remember where I got the icons from. www.xicons.com is a likely guess though. :)

As for the Finder window, with pleasure, though it's nothing out of the ordinary. I tried using custom icons all over the place once and it was a disaster - so apart from a few I keep it the way it was meant to be. :) Can't beat the 10.0-2 Finder icon, for example - the Panther one sucks.

I think the only things that stand up in a court of law are emails. They can trace them back to a particular machine at a certain time. So you best have a good alibi.

Hey, I like that streamline look of the menu bar. Where did you get it? Also, where did you get those iTunes control that go in the menu bar?

The iTunes controller in the menu bar is Synergy (http://wincent.com/a/products/synergy-classic/), an amazing app that also gives you hot key operations of iTunes. Indispensable if you use iTunes.

As for menu bar, I'm guessing col127 is using ShapeShifter (http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/shapeshifter).

Col127
Dec 7, 2004, 02:04 PM
the itunes controller is a program called synergy. it's a real slick program, well worth the $5 bucks. the weather is called weatherstrip, also about $5 bucks. it certainly saves screen space. i was using konfab widgets before, but i couldn't stand the extra space it used.

oh and the chrome like menubar is shapeshifter. it's a Christmas theme that someone made up.

I'm actually in the process of pricing a new server to run our Notes servers.

It's on an AS/400 now and using half of that $500,000 mainframes cpu cycles.

Notes 6 is great, if you ask me. Would you prefer Outlook/Exchange?!?

Support isn't too bad, usually just corrupted bookmark.nsf or a reload.

How do you guys get your pictures to maintain resolution and not get stretched when u set them as ur desktop backround?

Resolution can't be maintained when it is stretched. You have to start with a photo or pic with high enough resolution to support your screen size. This applies to rasterized graphics only.

So, if you screen has a resolution of 1600x1200 dpi, your photo must be that big. If your photo is only 800x600, when you blow it up to 1600x1200 size you are still going to only have 800x600 "pixels" just twice as big.

Make sense?

Hey, I was just wondering how you got your contact list to appear clear at the top left hand side of your desktop? Are you using adium as your chat client program? Also I was wondering what program the little brown monster represents next to your safari icon? And also the videogame console icon? And also the talking bubble in your top right hand corner next to the country flag. Sorry, its just that im a mac newbie & I think your desktop is really cool! Thanks =)

But how do you make the contact list clear with the names just listed? Is there an option or something additional I must download?

Go into Adium's preferences, choose Contact List, and play around with the different style options. It's there that you customize the contact list's appearance.

Yep, you can make it clear by changing the opacity to 0% You might have to change the color of the names so that they will show up on depending on your desktop background/application windows.

As for the little monster icon, it's an alternate Adium icon. They have a ton on their website that you can use (I have the HAL lens on my dock)

I got it off the web, but for the life of me, I can't remember the website. I've linked it from my online storage site, but I want to make it absolutely clear that this isn't my picture. If I ever figure out where it's from, I'll be sure to give the appropriate credit.

I do this all the time. It makes use of the Print Screen key, sometimes called PrntSc or something similar. You press it, and a picture of the screen goes into the clipboard (Windows does not give any feedback that it actually took a picture). You then paste that picture into Paint or some other graphics program and work with it from there.

On the computer at my Dads house (a family computer) I have this picture of Walden pond in Massachusetts that I took set as my desktop:

EDIT:
How do I resize images from an external site (in this case my own) so they aren't too large?

Save to disk open in preview export to jpeg make size 102400 bytes.
