    HEHEHE! I guess I may have to look into changing the bird coloration.

    Do you have a link to see it at 100%?

    Hey guys, can we keep the pic sizes down please?

    (I've edited the last few posts to change them to links)

    You can either post a smaller version of the desktop, or make a small thumbnail to link to a full size shot, or just post a link if you'd like.

    Keeping the pics posted to 640x480 (ideally) or 800x600 (at the MOST) keeps the page formatting nice and consistent for people who don't have 1600x1200 desktops (99% of us), and lessens the load on the dialup users.

    To make a thumbnail, take your full sized screenshot and save it as, for example, desktopfull.jpg.

    Then resize it to 640x480, and save it using the name desktopthumb.jpg.

    You post the smaller pic to the boards as a thumbnail, so clicking it will send you to the full sized image if you want to. Your post will look like this:

    [ url = addressofdesktopfull.jpg ] [ img ] addressofdesktopthumb.jpg [ /img ] [ /url ]

    Without the spaces.

    Interesting now that I think about it. . . the three biggest mac geeks in this zip code live in the same building, out of coincidence.

    I bought Konfabulator the day it came out, and several of those widgets are my own.

    Mando, I just outfitted my TiBook with a full complement of your impressionist scans! They're beautiful, especially put in a library by themselves and set to rotate every five minutes. Can't get enough Monet! (my Pismo had one of your SR-71 shots -- midair above the alps -- made me feel like it was a fast 'puter!) -- Keep up the great work, Mando (and if you could, offer 1280X854 images -- I know I can crop the bigger 1280s but it would be great just to pull 'em off). Lazy me, oh well.

    I always have a heard time sticking to a photo desktop. I mean, the picture can be nice, but more often than not, I go back on the second day to the generic Apple swoosh things. Anyhow, though I know myself like this, I thought this was an acceptable pic, so I thought I had to go something rather vector, but something really nice that doesn't tire fast is hard to come by. So, I find it particularly hard to enliven my desktop, except maybe for the occasional icon.

    Still, hope you're not being sarcastic, mandolux.

    One of Mando's aforementioned impressionist scans -- my screen is truly a work of art!
