Post your desktop  

post #1 of 1796

I wanted to put my new desktop shot in the old "desktop" thread but I couldn't find it

Therefore I start a new one

Here's is mine

Mac Pro 2.66, 5GB RAM, 250+120 HD, 23" Cinema Display
MacBook 1.83GHz, 2GB RAM

I know that this was addressed in the earlier "Post Your Desktop" thread, but now that my iDisk is heading towards its impending doom, how could I post my image? It seemed complicated with my iDisk and it was slow and it never worked, so how could I do it some other way?

BTW, Leonis, you'll probably be happy that I upgraded my Wallstreet from OS 9 to OS X, and I've only gone into classic once since then. It speeds things up a lot if the dock has no magnification or bouncing.

I'll just link to mine since I don't feel like resizing it...call me lazy. I made this desktop last year or maybe the year before. Just recently starting using it again.

That is the partition that holds my Classic OS. I just snapped the OS 9 icon on that partition

If you want to manage Classic use Classic Spy. Do a search in Versiontracker.com

By the way, this desktop looks real nice when inverted with Black Light. Too bad I can't take a screenie of it like that...

This will be my first OS X desktop...going to add more room below the models for the Dock (which I usually have hidden). Nice huh?



I'll post the final results later... <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />

Heheh, no. It just felt good to swear a bit at IBM. This is my second IBM disk that has died within a month! Lesson learned: always back-up!

And never to go with an IBM disk again....

Please, change your image to a link or create a smaller thumbnail. Your image is throwing off the page formatting and will make it slow for dial-up users.

Thanks,
