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.

dock and front white bit darkened, changed the silly blobs to white Tiger triangles :)

Hi bryphotogy! Please tell me about the Honda. I assume it's a concept car, though it looks as if it could easily be in production with a few mods. It looks to be designed for Japanese roads (and UK and Oz, as the dashboard hump appears to be on the right (starboard) side of the car).

It's the CRZ, the Japanese concept. It's suppose to bring back a lot of the features of the CRX from the 80's and early 90's (unfortunately it looks like it has a 2nd row of seats) and while being the cheapest hybrid on the market. Car and Driver said there might be a 2010 or 2011 release which I will be all over.

Yes. It's east of both Chantilly and Reston, and is north of where I-66 and Rt. 123 intersect.

Good to see someone who likes Spyderco knives outside of their official forum :Smirk: . Those seven babies (all my favorite) are currently next to me as I type. Thank God my big Dyad was already sold to a bro on their forum, therwise I really don't have any idea how a big dyad would fit in the wallpaper :) . Oh... I made the wall but the main credit (the wooden wall) should goes to the one on deviantart.

This is the Trocad&#233;ro, as it was previously. It was demolished in the 90's to be replaced by a less intrusive building that would allow a wider view. It's basically the same two little side buildings with a joint building in b/t. I thought the large building in the center was amazing...the french did not concur, it was labeled an atrosity and replaced as I said before.

i'm not a huge halo fan either, but i thought it was cool that someone actually made it (supposedly fully operational)

the dock is pushed to the left using Onyx, which for leopard you need to download a beta still that isn't on their site (or wasn't when i checked), but is available here http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/11582/onyx
(if you aren't used to onyx, it is a system cleanup software, and the settings you are looking for are under Parameter > Dock )

as for the fan speed and temp, it is an app called SMC Fan Control
http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/23049/smcfancontrol
which not only displays it, but allows you to set a minimum and maximum fan speed and a few other settings.

That sucks about not being paid for your art, but....isn't there ways to lock files to keep that from happening.
IE: Here's your proof, when you pay me I'll send you a usable file.....
I know nothing about "web" stuff, but I've been in the print industry for almost 30years, and have seen people pull that **** all the time.
I'm relatively behind the curve on the digital disign world, but it seem's to me that there must be a way that a designer can share their files in a "read only" format, so that their work does not get stolden.
I'd really like to learn more before I spend anymore time in school!
If it's that easy to rip off a designer, why the **** does anyone bother doing it?

Well, you can buy Leopard and upgrade, to give it a transleucent look, or you can buy shapeshifter from unsanity and do it with a theme and icon pack.

I'm not for sure, but I do believe that is normal for Leopard. Or, at least mine is...

That's strictly Leopard. I didn't do anything to make it transparent. If you read some of the reviews of Leopard, there are some people who don't like the transparent menu bar. Personally I wouldn't have changed it, but I can live with it.

As far as changing icons, I've simply added and removed them. If you want to change icons for a given application, folder, file, or device, you'll probably do well to search the forum. There are lots of people who do it, but I'm not one of them.

Hope this helps!

The "base" (or whatever you call it) of your dock is nearly transparent, or pretty much is except for the reflections. How did you get it that way? I've been missing cleardock since I upgraded, but I think I like the way yours looks even more!

The file to play with are called "scurve" and there are 4 of them.

I dunno about removing them, but you could sure try it if you make a backup of the file(s) in question.

While searching, I found this (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=82472&page=1&highlight=rainbow+dock) thread which tells of the files.

As I understand, there is now a widget that will change the color for those of you who wish to only change the color, it is located here (http://www.elgebar.com/dockcolor.html).

11-16-2007, 02:59 PM
Thanks, but not quite what I was looking for. How do I manipulate the scurve files when they're constantly in use? I tried opening the files and recoloring them myself, but the system won't let me delete or replace the files already in use.

In the first method I suggested, it tells you how. You need to simply make a backup, and put them in a safe place. then delete the files that are in the original folder. It will ask you for your password. then make a copy of your backups and make changes to the copy. then insert them back into the resources folder of the dock. It will ask you for your password. then open a terminal and type "killall Dock"

-end transmission

How do you get your .jpg's to show a preview as the icon? Never mind... figured it out. Such a Mac newbie!

It's easy! (Thanks for your question because until now I didn't know.)

Click on your desktop to get Finder in the menu. Go to View> Show View Options and at the bottom of the little window, select Show icon preview. Is easy. :D :D :D :D

Update:

You found it before I posted. Ah, but that's cool!

if you don't want your menubar get transparent, you could use Leopaque...
