I don't know, but I gave you a solution. Up to you to try it or not. If you want to troubleshoot Safari, please start a thread on that in the Software forum.

Not sure, I had no problems just posting a picture in the photos thread. I would post a question in the software forums.

Here goes a try from Safari 2.0.1. Hope the pic is ok with the rules. I followed the Pic of the month rules.

Lets see if it works. It worked. What are the rules for posting a desktop pic Schweb? I dropped it down a bit to 800x600 to be sure but it does not look at clear at that res. Looks ok though.

whats your setup look like?

When posting pics 800x600 pixels is always good. This stuff is just loading too big and most of us aren't on cinema displays. I couldn't even click on the one I wanted right away because these huge oversized desktop shots were still loading.

I love this thread but this is just a heads up because I am sure I'm not the only one who gets annoyed by this.

baggss
10-03-2005, 08:42 PM
Unless your simply on a dial up, something is wrong if you are having that problem.

I'm on a 17inch LCD (non-Apple) with Cable and this stuff loads just fine.

Johninc, see my sig for my setup. That desktop is from my G4 Tower. The RAID arrays are in a 4 bay external FW drive enclosure.

johninc
10-03-2005, 08:45 PM
I'm on a 12 inch ibook with dsl all I have to do is scroll sideways, doesn't bother me. Loads fast too.

sursuciofla
10-03-2005, 08:47 PM
I'm on DSL and it is no slouch but even so I went to click on a desktop and some where still loading so it kept pushing my browser. Plus you have to scroll not only with the vertical but also the horizontal scroll. It is just two big and I will post one that I think is a good size in a moment. No reason imo to have it that big. But hey maybe I am the only one who is annoyed by this so I guess it's not a big deal. :alien:

You are correct it is not your problem, just voicing my opinion and I will always think that is annoying. It loads fine I would just love to be able to see thumbnails to click and be screen size rather than them being oversized and even if I did not load on mac-forums and did so from my server I could do it smaller.

baggss
10-03-2005, 08:52 PM
Your loading yours as an attachment from the Mac-Forums server. Mine is on my server and just included as an img link from my server. I'm saving Mac-Forums some server space by doing so.

Sorry if it is taking to long or loading to slow on your system, but it's not my fault/problem.

Attachments isn't working for me either but my server's almost up so whatever.

How did you get the icon for the App menu?

baggss
10-03-2005, 09:09 PM
Attachments works fine for me, however I have posted that image at several sites, including my own, so it is easier for me to just have it in one central location and then link to it.

Benjamindaines,

I got all of my icons from xicons.com, or are you speaking of something else?

EDIT: If you mean the icon for Grab to the left of "FILE" vice the App name "GRAB", it's done by Fruit Menu, a haxie from Unsanity.

Ya, that is done by the Fruit Menu Haxie by Unsanity, it does it for all Apps including the Finder. Saves a big hunk of space in the toolbar.

Hey baggss, what weather program are you using? I've just started looking for one and I like the looks of that desktop icon.

Thanks

baggss
10-04-2005, 12:24 PM
It's a Kofabulator Widget called "The Weather". I still like it better than the apple dashboard widgets for weather...

Not forgetting the other Macintosh I use...

(I was using a 7200/90 as my other machine but acquired a great little 8500/120 at the weekend for free, turned out that it was in fact a G3 upgraded 8500 at 333MHz :flower: )

See the thread in Anything Goes for more info!

Not bad for a 5 machine which also came with monitor, adb keyboard and mouse and 7500 for spare parts :flower:

That is a really great picture. Looks good against the black. I think it would look even more boss if Billy faded in to the black a little more down where his legs are. Same with the upper left corner. Smudge out that little bit of light. Seriously, that would look really cool!
