post #41 of 1796
Patchouli

Actually, now that you ask, I can't remember off the top of my head. I periodically go desktop hunting and I visit so many sites that I don't remember them all. In case you wanted to go looking for it, the name of the file is "Ball Bearing.jpg" but that could easily be a rename by me (I no longer remember). In the lower right corner it says: "Design by totoloco@free.fr". And finally, if you don't care to go googling for it, I'll post it on my comp for download. The link will only be up when my computer is up, which is usually between the hours of 11 AM and 11PM PST (I'm trying to wean myself away from my iTools account). Here's the link:

<a href="http://169.229.80.152/~nprasad/Ball%20Bearing.jpg" target="_blank">Ball Bearing Desktop Pic</a>

Enjoy!

P.S. Grab Black Light and check out the desktop while inverted, if you haven't got it already.

[ 07-25-2002: Message edited by: Blueflame ]</strong><hr></blockquote>Thanks a lot for posting this! I just downloaded it and added it to my collection. I usually get my desktop backgrounds at Digital Blasphemy and or Mike Bonnel (and sites like that). This one is just gorgeous and clean. I haven't downloaded backlight yet, but I will and check it out. Thanks again!

post #49 of 1796
i thought I had it placed in there. I apparently am incapable of placing my image in the message. I thought I could drag and drop it. Maybe someone can tell me what to do to get it in there.

Yes, the website is currently down. I can't seem to find a mirror either. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

It's because <a href="http://localhost/" target="_blank">http://localhost/</a> points to your own computer. Replace localhost with your IP address, and turn file sharing on in System Preferences, and put the image in the Public folder in your Home folder.

You can find AquaMon at versiontracker. Here's a link

Well, you can find *reviews* of AquaMon at VT, but as I said before, the website and download link are broken.

post #79 of 1796
I must be in the minority here, but I think that OS X looks good "as is." Sure a little icon and desktop picture customization needs to be done, but I don't think "themes" improve upon OS X already good looks.
