My computer currently has this image of Saturn from Astronomy Picture of the Day. My screensaver uses a folder of about 150 pictures, mostly from APOD. I check it each morning and if the picture's cool, I save it to that folder. Today's was nifty, nebulas look awesome.

 

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

I Like to check teh Astronomy Picture of the Day as well.  I used to make them my wallpaper whenever a cool one came around, but started to get bored with space pictures after about a year.

Its great to see all these

Its great to see all these macs in use. Maybe one day Apokalipse can ditch that Carbon fibre shell wanna be and get the real thing Sticking out tongue heh. We got two guys here at work with that shell replacement and they look pretty close to OSX but windows is windows no matter what. I still have a windows rig at home strictly for gaming, but everything else I use mac.

Cmd Shft 4 and then your mouse icon will turn into a cursor, drag the cursor from the top left to bottom right or visa versa, let go, then a picture file of your whatever was on your screen will appear on your desktop.

I have the first half of it. (Once I figured out how to contort my fingers to do a Cmd Shift 4.)

I now have a .png file on my desktop. I can drag and drop it into a file on my Mac, but how do I drag and drop it into this comment section?

Or do I have to make it a .jpg, upload it and then link it into a comment?

Sorry. I'm really techno-challenged.

You need to find a place to host the image, I prefer using http://www.imageshack.us/ . Go there, upload your PNG file, and wait for it to do its thing. You will then go to a page full of options, you might want to use the option "Thumbnail for forums (1)". Copy that and paste it into your forum message and that should do it for ya.

I can use any .msstyles shell I want. All I had to do was replace C:\Windows\System32\uxtheme.dll with a hacked version.

also, I use a program called YzDock for my docks. it's free.

 

Besides, the main reason I use a PC is the hardware; the PC's hardware is just so much more customisable (and I love to overclock stuff)

I have a Sempron 2800+, stock speed 1.6GHZ, overclocked to 2.24GHZ (soon to be a 3300+, stock 2.0GHZ, and I'll attempt 2.8GHZ)

I have a 7950 GT, stock speed 550MHZ, volt-modded and overclocked to 730MHZ (I'm hoping I can reach 800MHZ with watercooling and even higher voltage)

 

I can run just about any game with the highest settings without lag.

Clean

Desktop of Phanto

I've been working on getting this layout quite right for the past few days. It still isn't quite how I want it, but it's fairly close. At any rate, we've got the Studio 28 V Compact for the visual style, RocketDock for the docking system, and a custom wallpaper I worked on while listening to the recording of the show last night. It takes far too long to get the perfect curves.

Oh course I will! On your keyboard press 'print screen', and then paste into a new photoshop file, or other photo editing software file. Reduce the size of the image to like 800 X 600, or 640 X 480.

Mine is called the Horse Head Shapped Reflection Nebula, but I think they should have called it the Dragon Head Reflection Nebula.

Seeing this screengrab

Seeing this screengrab might result in many Mac questions since I would like a machine that works lol

 

I dread the thought of recording music, writing a novel, or doing animation while battling "This program has blah-blah-blahSend of Do Not Send" error messages the entire time lol

I am using a 24" iMac G4 in the Mac Computer Classroom at the local college. I find nothing boring bout the computer or myself. You're not boring. Cats like Mac computers. I had a kitty in Alaska.  El Gato liked sleeping on top on my G4 Power Mac, pawed at the keyboard, and liked the sniffing the montior.

Macs are good computers. However I've had a few like the Rev A PowerMac G5 1.6 GHZ which had logic board problems. Most of the Macs I've owned were excellent computers, and just worked - not me working for the computer. I'm currently running Linux on an old iBook G3 500MHz, and it's a mixed bag of fun and anxiety. Linux is free, or low priced, so I don't expect it to be perfect.

I got to agree. I just recently switched to mac and love it. Previously was a unix/linux guy. I think the new intel macs provide everything you could want. Especially with parallels you can run just about any OS realtime with a small performance hit. Though the recent addition to the linux windows managers - beyrl looks absolutely awesome.
