    I loaded www.apple.com and the G5 picture on the front page looked like this:




    Very weird.

    You don't see the blue and the pink streaks on it? It never looked like before on my computer. And no, I am not under the influence of anything. ;)

    You're video card might be failing.

    Try installing a new driver for it if you can or run a diagnostic on it.

    Could be lack of oxygen

    Breath...

    Take some deep breaths and feed some oxygen to your brain...

    Hmmm.... so no one else sees the streaks? Weird, because everything else I'm looking at is fine. All of the other Apple pages are fine, and so are all of the other programs I'm running. I downloaded the image from Apple's website, and launched it in iPhoto, Graphic Converter and Preview, and still I get the streaks, and when I reload the page, it still has the streaks. Weird.

    Regards,

    No shrooms. Not unless you get flashbacks from shrooms, and it would be a very old flashback, let me tell you. ;)

    AHHH!! Maybe I am on shrooms and I don't know it, because now the image looks right. I swear that it was all blue and pink swirly for a while on every program I launched it in. Maybe Brita is putting something new in the filters, because all I've had is water today. Oh boy, do I feel like a boob now.

    Regards,
    Gus

    P.S. I think I'll have my video card looked at just in case.

    You might have your video settings on a low color bit depth

    well it could be a product of him staring at that picture of the G5 for a bit, combined with his background image and his screen's color settings. Personally, after looking at that small G5 picture for about 30 seconds, I started to see a pinkish ring form around the G5 logo, but it definately was nothing that didnt go away with a blink of my eyes.

    This was a hilarious thread. Just a thought, but what kind of system are you on, Gus?

    Gus, I think you may have a serious medical problem. Take this quick online screening test to check your vision's color discernment capacity. And please let us know how it turns out, okay?

    Take care.
