I took this picture in Inverness, Scotland last month.

Nice picture, although it clearly isn't of Scotland. Not enough kilts, not enough woad, and not enough public drunkenness.

Gonna have to wake up even earlier next time if you're gonna pull one over on me. :P

By the way, how do you do that thumbnail thing, Aran?

convert -scale 500x directly on the server, over SSH. It's quicker than using Gimp and uploading two files.

I've always used the standard preset desktop background. Just didn't feel the need to have a picture in the background to distract me from my work.

I was actually referring to the UBB code side of it. But never mind, when you mentioned two files, I finally got it: Img tag inside a url tag, with two different sized pictures.

Tyran, how did you manage to tell your computer that the Vista disk should actually be named "Vista"? I made the Windows partition with Bootcamp, but I can't remember it gave me an option to give the partition a name.
I had to rename it from inside Vista, since OS X can't write to NTFS, and there are no 3rd party tools that let Leopard do so yet.

Btw, why do you have MSN Messenger, Adium, and iChat on your Dock? Do you really need all 3?

Well, on the desktop on the computer that I am currently using, my mother put a picture of a baby. And that baby is the son of one of my half-brothers.

Heh. I tidied up my desktop just, um, about 2 minutes after seeing this infernal topic. Not sure if I'll do the picture thing, but I'll tell you all that it is a picture of the sun and the moon.

Image shack rejected my image, but mine is a simple Mac Classic background. I would have had Abbey Road as my background, but all my attempts fail.

Do not insult Mac Classic. If you do, it will arouse its minions destroy Windows with an abominable virus.

Thanks. It felt oddly appropriate a few months ago.

By Mac Classic, are you referring to OS 9, the Macintosh Classic, or something else?

I'll go ahead and insult Mac Classic, since I haven't yet seen it done in this thread, and it needs to be made whole.

Mac Classic is a big jerk.

There. That feels better.

That's a nice cat. I have four right now.

My picture right now is a close up of some tree branches covered in snow, but usually its a wonderful sunset picture I took in Zion.

Thanks, and we talked about that. I don't really need them all through, since I can Adium for all, but MSN has some options which Adum doesn't have for the MSN stuff, and I simply like iChat's look better than Adium. Also, using them all three gives me some sense of tidiness, since I will always know who could have tried to contact me when a certain client is asking for attention. Yoy could say that each client has it's own group: MSN is mostly for school friends, Adium is for Xfire and has some poeple I hardly talk with (but it's a great spying utility if you want to know if somebody is playing a game) and iChat is for AIM and has all SW people.

My desktop alternates among various pictures of Michelle Trachtenberg.

And I'm not ashamed of that.

I think you'll find that several people here play EV Nova. I know Aran does, and I'm sure we aren't the only ones.
