Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.
Feel free to post the source from which you got your wallpapers, themes, icons, UI modifier apps, etc.

Thinkdigit is my regular tech forum. Used some textures from here and there, and a couple of layer styles.

08-04-2008, 12:04 AM
Press Shift+Cmd+3 for a screenshot (it'll save to the desktop by default), Shift+Cmd+4 will let you cut what you want to take an image of. There's also 'Grab' which you can find under services in the application's menu or Applications> Utilities.

I noticed you use firefox, is that better than using Safari? Like faster, ease of use? Although Safari in my eyes seems to run more efficient than when I used Firefox on PC.

skaheadpunk
08-04-2008, 12:20 AM
I like Safari... but I like Firefox more. Very occasionally I'll find a site that doesn't like Safari, and after a while I just stopped using it. I used to work in a net cafe and we used Safari because it's nice and simple - everything you need to browse around and do what you need to is right there. Actually, I dunno why I like Firefox more, just do.

I think it's one of those things - try them out, see what you like best.

I also like a funky theme for Firefox :).

Habitat18
08-04-2008, 12:33 AM
I just downloaded Firefox, and it seems to run faster. hmm hahaha. I'll have to keep using both to figure out what I like better. Although using Firefox, for some reason it has that PC feel to it, not sure if I like it being that I switched from a PC haha. oh well
