Ok, new desktop made me clean... sorta...


Would it be possible to make an applescript that would allow me to drop a pdf (aka screen cap) on it, ask me to make a "thumbnail" selection and then convert both the thumbnail and whole pdf into pngs suitable for posting? (the actual post and upload of said images being automated would be nice as well, but I'd rather start slow...)

It doesn't count as cleaning if you just chuck everything in the a CRAP ON THE DESKTOP folder.

Still, given your past screen shots of your desktop, I commend your effort.

I do that all the time. It's easier. A lot of files I download don't have a real home for a while. So I chuck it all in an "Off the Desktop" folder for later. I have almost a gig of stuff with no home, even after going through and sorting things into their rightful places.

I suspect Tiger's "Smart Folders" and Spotlight will help tremendously. I can't wait.

1) I need that source picture

2) how do you have 571 new emails!

3) I noticed you also have a desktop clutter folder

I'm using the beta version, which will expire on the 15th ... it also has to stay open to update the picture, which really sucks. The pictures it makes are really cool tho...

I have 577 emails because I have 4 email addresses and am waiting for smart mail folders in tiger to sort my mail for me... I also have a bunch of other general folders that need to be sorted as well... ('04 election stuff, .edu stuff by club & semester, .mac stuff, shopping stuff... etc.) So I'd rather take the time to do it all at once. Most of it is automated email that I get for news (OCD ) purposes, so its not like people are wondering if I fell into a black hole.

My desktop clutter folder is 7.48 gigs and has at least 3 or 4 other "crap goes in here" folders... I desperately need spotlight and smart folders.

Scroll down for cylindrical projection images.

Of course, the clock is done by the program Paul mentioned, but these are good too. They're also VERY useful if you ever do a space scene in 3D.

This is the background on my main PC. It'll have to do until I get my shiny new Mac(s). Click on the image to see the fullsize version.

Thanks... my desktop looks noting like that these days... but that was a pic of a modded Gnome desktop on top of Gentoo Linux. Now I am using WindowMaker on top of Slackware Linux -- However I might be going back to Gentoo and Gnome soon.

In any case, lets take a peek at your desktop.


no sig, how's that for being a rebel!

OK, one simple clarification. What is 1337? I think I got most of the other "words" but that one seems to have multiple meanings. That or my eyes are still squirting blood onto the screen. (Now where's the smiliy for that!)

^^ One more quality post from the desk of Ebby. ^^
