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.

I just changed mine all over. I had to resize and do some Photoshop work on the wallpaper. Still looking for a decent HD icon and I changed my GarageBand icon. I even customized the overlay for YouControlTunes.

I do have some questions for people out there. Does anyone know how to get the full date listed in the menu bar? As you can see it only tells me the day of the week. Is there a separate thing I have to download to get it to show the full date?

I got one in my menu bar that works for Gmail. I got it at this website:

If you don't have Gmail, there might be some for other services out there as well, just do some google searching! Good luck!

Frazzm, here is what you do. Go to a Photo Hosting website, for this example I'll use Photobucket. You upload your picture (in this case the screenshot of you desktop) and it provides you with the "img" code, which you copy and past in your post. (refer to the picture below.) and Voila! you have a full sized image.

Hey AK how are you able to split you dock into sections like that. I have been trying to do it and can never figure it out.

I'm running vista, and that program is object dock. You are able to split it up into sections.

However, this is only really needed in a windows based environment, but with something as simple and easy to use as finder, these sections in the dock are not really needed as they are all contained within the finder.

I hate my computer.

Sorry dude, I was in Las Vegas all weekend and just saw this. I use Snapshooter (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17471). It is not Univ/Bin though, so if you have an Intel Mac you just take the screen shot and drag it into the border. You can do a google search for other borders, cool stuff. :)

It's Photopro 1.5

Scroll down the page to see it after the Neon theme:

http://interfacelift.com/themes-mac/index.php?sort=downloads

It came with icons as well. I had to manually change some of them though. e.g. msn

used ClearDock to change the colour of the dock, its free from usanity, though shapeshifter i had to pay for, which applied the theme and icons.

Hope that helps you.

Go to interfacelift.com and download, for free, which ones you want. Right click on a logo you want to use from what you downloaded, and select get info, then select the logo in the top left and copy it with apple c. Then right click the icon you want to replace with the one you just copied and select get info( you can't do it from the dock do it from your applications folder) and select the logo in the top left and hit apple v.
