    hi
    on a mac with OS X 1.3, if you invert your screen (cntrl-opt.-command-8) and take a picture (command-shift-3) the hard drive icon or any folders on the desktop don't show up on the picture, but they show up on the actual desktop when it's inverted. Why?

    bug report to apple!!!

    probably no answer back, if so, expect something like "will be fixed in 10.4, good reason to buy the update... freak"

    hmm, didn't even know you could do that - so what purpose does it serve to invert the screen?

    I did it in Panther and it inverts and turns it into B/W - not inverted colors.

    Any way to get inverted colors?

    I like it!

    Kinda doubles as one exotic theme. I like the white shadows and well it just looks cool! Kinda kills graphics though. I wonder if you could print your screen on a transparency and then develop it like normal film?:cool:

    wow. neat.

    i think this might work well if you wanted to simplify your presentation on the projector. b/w may show up better than in some colors... many presentations look fine on a computer screen but look absolutely awful once projected...

    Yeah, i noticed it is hard on the graphics. My computer has trouble running graphically intensive actions, especially certain screensavers.

    other real hidden stuff...

    go to /Applications/Utilities, open Directory Access. enable netinfo. then log out all users. on the log in screen click on "other" (it should be there now, if not, eneble root user in netinfo) then put ">console" in the user name field. press enter... visit the cool world of bare OSX.

    restart and press apple-V

    restart and press apple-S (just type "exit", not something like "** -** /*" -> i ll censor this before anybody actually does something stupid...)

    restart and press apple-alt-O-F (just type "exit" nothing else!!!)

    all a bit less cool, until you really know what to do with it :)

    Nice effects.

    I was looking for that 'other' tab I used...

    When I installed 10.2 originally it was one of the first things I did... I thought it was a preference, you made my day refinding it!

    :D
