    Nothing spectacular, although people always ask how I got an aquarium on my desktop with a "live" fish. All I can say is "Mac-tacular". [​IMG]

    anime, as usual. i think anime makes the best wallpaper, for some reason; it just looks good. also, i find that i look at my desktop less now that exopsé has come around anyways.

    increase the compression on the .jpg
    diffrent programs seem to have diffrent scales of compression, I used paint shop pro, and set the compression to 12, on a scale of 1-99 (where 1 is the best quality).

    also make sure it is progressive, and not standard. progressive .jpgs seem to take up less space (and load nicer)

    Yeah, I use Konfabulator and have the "Better What's Going On", "CPU temp", and "Widescape Weather" widgets running. The background is Marine Aquarium with Backlight 2 being used to control it as my desktop background.

    My Desktop. The Guys are the main Characters in (T)raumschiff Surprise: Periode 1, a German Language Parody of Star Trek, Star Wars, and many other Sci-Fi Movies/Shows, including The Fifth Element. OK so I don't know much German, but it looks hilarious. And I'm hoping that at some point it is Dubbed to English, and released in the US.
