Before the picture loaded I was under the impression that it is a picture of your thinkpad being thrown in the air. I thought, what a stupid idea. :-)

You should see the stick she uses to whip up some whoopass.

The Royale theme from XP Media Centre - I'll eventually get around to minimising the desktop clutter and finding a good calendar/time type of thing (Bill, yours looks neat - where did it come from? :))

EDIT: Found it's Rainlendar...fits nicely with my otherwise plain navy background.

You encountered that in Firefox too? Yeah, Firefox had a bunch of memory leak problems; primarily from extension and plugin developers that were a little too careless with the code and leaked memory like a sieve.

Right now, I have gotten it to be a bit better and firefox usually holds steady at 137MB, even with tons of tabs open. Before, it would top out at 550MB for the same number of tabs and windows open; even when you closed them, it wouldn't release the same amount of memory it used to start with.

Also, my background is the standard IBM World Timezone Atlas; also, I am trying out a new background as well...See below

SHODAN from System Shock 2; I have it on 1400x1050 on my desktop, but I had to shrink it down to 800x600, even with the *.png format, to get it under the 1MB limit.

The map of the world, projected onto 2D, with the respective timezones and markers for each plus GMT. Known better as the "IBM Americas Map" with the resolution prefixed. :)

Been doing a bit of experimenting with the Vista Inspirat skin package - here's what I've settled with for now. It's pretty much set for fast access to my university files. And I'll eventually get the My Docs, My Computer and Recycle Bin icons off there because they're on the Object Dock bar up top:

Plus Rainlendar, of course ;)

I like everything to fit together in a clean, stlyish way. In addition, it should be very usable.
