    I changed my desktop last night, so I was inspired to see what some of the other forumers are sporting on their PC’s.

    In case you don’t know how to take a desktop pic, all you have to do is hit the “print screen” button next to the F12 key. Then open up Paint, or whatever, and paste it, save it, upload it, and post it. Keep the format as either .jpg or.gif, no bitmaps.

    Here’s mine. I use StyleXP with the Strange World theme as my visual style. As for the background, the image is a Cowboy Bebop screencap turned into a wallpaper. The Matrix type lettering isn’t actually part of the background, it’s another program running to create all of the code. The program is ZMartix. The background seemed too boring, so I added a little Matrix flare to it.

    Well, I have a firewall too, so it’s ridiculously hard to find and download songs. As for Avalanche, I have since deleted the game. You remove colored balls of three or more at a time to clear the board, but it’s not like Snood. It’s not even that fun. Lousy Yahoo games…

    I wanted to get in the FFXI mood, but I didn’t really find a wallpaper I liked. I went with a FF:U one instead, since I’m watching the series right now. I also increased the resolution to 1280×960.

    Yes, but perhaps I should divert my focus to correcting the common confusion between “your” and “you’re,” which is another error made here and too often in our daily lives.


    Your shows possession, as in, “Is that your cheesecake?”
    It wouldn’t make sense with you’re because…
    You’re is a contraction of you and are, as in, “You’re bringing the cheesecake?”
    In other words, “Is that you’re cheesecake?” = “Is that you are cheesecake?” = :(

    and here it is! my current desktop!

    And gman, i have a question for you…since you never seem to be around to talk to me on AIM lately.(its usually saying ‘hi’ then thats it)…
    anyway, since i moved alot of files around…this messes up with Frontpage.when i put a file into frontpage, it has the directory of that file..the problem is, when i upload most files (this is like 98%), i upload them to the main directory (/)….but in frontpage, it counts the files as in diff directories, and then it messes everything up
    so is there any way of getting around this?
    this was the reason i had so many random files on my desktop before.

    As long as they are in one single folder on your computer, you should have no problem uploading. If you make a folder on your computer, it’ll upload folders on the server.

    It’s called hype my friend. I advertise my birthday, and last year I got more presents out of it then other years. I advertise Gameday to get people hyped up about it. The Hayes Invitational, same thing, I started the hype early. Clearly, we both have different styles. I like to advertise these events weeks, sometimes months in advance, while you like to arrange parties only hours before they begin.
