Speaking of Photoshop et al, I have The GIMP on my flash drive just because another forum said I could get my 16x16 avatar under 1kb by doing an "optimized" save. Which is pretty funny because I guess it's a really powerful program, rivaling Photoshop. It's kind of above me, I'm sure I could learn it but have never been interested. It better be powerful for as long as it takes to start up. If I needed that power, I'd stick with The GIMP because it's free and available on Linux, should I decide to go that route one day. And it's nice to stick with programs that are portable and available on as many platforms as possible, so you're not tied to one platform or PC.

But that day is not today as I'm running Windows 7 RC 1 (build 7100). Here's my current desktop. Click for fullsize (but be warned, it's 1600x1200, 1.45MB).

Yeah... I learned a long time ago that the default Windows action of stacking all the shortcuts top to bottom, left to right is inefficient as hell, there's no organization. Also if you have a cool background, the shortcuts can really take away from the presentation of the image. It's not done so much with this one, but generally I position my icons in the "void" spaces of the wallpaper, so they don't cover anything up. Then there's the grouping. My Computer/Docs icons, my media stuff, my games, they're usually located in the same place most times. Kind of like a digital feng shui or however you say it, only I make my own rules. But yeah - it works good for me. And of course the two copies of Firefox and Pidgin (His and Hers, lol) because I use PortableApps; most of my software is from them or otherwise portable, sitting on an external hard drive. I reformat, reinstall Windows, instead of reinstalling programs I just re-create the shortcuts.

I have recently become a fan of the anime "Lucky Star" and have found a wallpaper to suit the new interest. biggrin

http://media.moddb.com/images/members/1/289/288510/Desktop_2.jpg

If anyone wants the wallpaper I will be happy to provide a link.

*Pre-post edit*

WTF? Why are images are disallowed?


Good, Bad, I'm the guy with a Minigun, Chainsaw, and a big a** Cannon.
I'm a gamer at heart, but I'm limited by my surroundings...

Pfew, it's not just me. Images (with the img tags) and links (both url and url= tags) are not allowed.

But they do work in Preview mode, which is what I found weird.
