What does your desktop look like? Right now I'm on my laptop though. You can see it at:

I just found some a blown up logo and all, and just played with it in Photoshop 6. Mostly I just get them from various sites, but how'd you figure I made that? A few people have stolen it and called it there own, so I started just putting with Icons and all on it.

Uhm, my desktop...
Well it may look a little odd. It's spread over 2 screens. Not much happening in the background. There is only a binary counter in the left upper corner.
( the rings rotate from 1 to 0 to 1, not unlike the clock in that Mars-movie )
That is just a javascript.
I try to keep it not cluttered. It still seems to clutter quite fast though.
( that's what the "My Development and My Apps folders are for. Simply drag anything inthere, it will then also show up in the Start-menu )

A 32 bit counter which indicates seconds since 1970 is under development =)

Boring, just like the owner :tazz:

My desktop is just windows ordinary one, thought of showing it here but had three reasons against:

1)My computer is as spartan as possible(just p2p and those that come with XP without messenger) new prossesses stand out a mile this way, this so
2)I have no screen catcher, and 3)you've already seen it.

screen catching is easy with windows, just hit ctrl and print screen at the same time. then open it in Paint under accessories, and save as a jpeg or png, walla all done :tazz:

Other odd keys worthy of note on your keyboard include the SysRq key (sometimes appearing as SysReq), which shares the same key as the “Print Screen” key. (Historical sidelight – SysRq was the “84th key” added when the 83-key PC/XT keyboard became the 84-key AT keyboard.) Unless programmed by a particular application, the SysRq key does nothing in most operating systems, including DOS, Windows, and OS/2. The SysRq key has different "hooks" into the system BIOS (basic input/output system, the interface between the software and the low-level functions of the computer) from the other keys on the keyboard. IBM evidently included this key to facilitate task switching in future operating systems – that is, to allow either switching from one task to another (as on a mainframe computer), or interrupting all tasks and returning control to the keyboard. Advanced MS-DOS Programming, second edition, Microsoft Press, states:

    A multitasking program manager would be expected to capture INT 15H so that it can be notified when the user strikes the SysReq key.

In layman's terms that means, "You can make a multitasking program manager monitor a specific location in your computer's hardware so it can do something cool, such as letting the user switch tasks, when the SysReq key is pressed." As it turned out, the developers of Windows didn't use SysReq when implementing task switching. Some new keyboards no longer feature this key, and its days seem numbered.

Dude, I see nothing... The link is pointing at something currently unavailable.
So I'm still curious about the dragon.

BTW, the image in your signature also doesn't show.
The link under it works fine though.

just FYI :tazz:

Vonny and Jake's images I see fine, mine is fine too. All other images on the web show up fine too.

http://efwis.geeksto.../Screenshot.png
doesn't show.
Other portable network graphics show up fine too. Just his don't.

So how can that be my error? Then I can fix it.
Thanks :tazz:
Ojo

Oh wait... Caps sensitivity maybe...
Yes yes, http://efwis.geeksto.../screenshot.png seems to load endlessly.
But then the link on the page was wrong.

That doesn't seem to be it either.
entire efwis seems to react like it's transmitting radio through a 20 cm lead wall though.

are you using a firewall that is automatically blocking the site url for some reason? I don't know what the problem could be either since my ASAP logo isn't PNG its JPEG, created with Gimp on my WindowsXP drive and both images are linked to the same primary URL efwis.geekstogo.com.

Now it works fine. Both, your image and your siggie-pic.

My firewall? I don't know. I haven't had any problems
with other sites. And I cannot recall accrpting from www.geekstogo.com but
barring efwis.geekstogo.com. ( as far as I know I don't have anything barred,
the firewall is only keeping the inside network screened off )

Anyway, it works now. I've seen the dragon. (Was that a 3D object?)
Thanks :tazz:

No it was an animated object. its actually the same dragon I use in my avatar and ASAP logo. unfortunately I can't get rid of the blur caused by placing on the desktop unless I want a hundred smaller versions on it, and that IMO is too cluttered looking.
