This is another that I've had for quite a while. It looks like some sort of random art, but flip it upside down to see what it actually is.


I'd show screenshots, but my desktop is boring and only has the recycle bin and the windows taskbar (vertical, left side, mostly transparent). I prefer to keep it bare.

Soon, soon. I think the ARM port has come along quite a long way since I last used it.

Yay, updates! There are a couple things I'm not 100% happy about with it, but overall I do like it a lot.

I made the middle color a grey instead of black; it makes the overall contours sharper. I added parameterizations for the positive color, negative color, zero color, and infinity color, so now I can make it any colors I want.


a couple of years back I made a gazillion of those f(x,y)

Simple, clean and mac-themed. I really like apple's graphic style, but I find ubuntu more functional.

I'm not saying this out of any personal issue with you, but I'm still stuck with a single monitor system, and I'm secretly hoping 5000+ pixel resolutions cause cancer or something.

On the windows side...

I always keep the icons hidden, it looks so much cleaner that way.


And on the Linux (Ubuntu 10.04.4) side...

I have a transparent purple terminal window & Conky setup that look really nice with that background. But I'm on Windows right now and I'm not going to restart just to get a screenshot.

I like the contrast of the purple on that flower, but why 10.04.4 still?

12.04 is soooooo nice, and they actually got Unity working remarkably well finally.

I guess I just kept putting it off. "Well I've got stuff I need to do right now, but next time I'll update it." I've probably thought that about a 100 times, and of course I never have. Besides, I'm on Windows most of the time. But I'll make sure to update it this week.


Anyways, here's a full screenshot:

I'm not the one you asked but... why not? 10.04 came out after Windows 7. It's still fairly new (in terms of OSs) and has full support until April.

Kernel updates alone are a good reason, yeah you can do em yourself, but generally I can't find a reason to stick with an older version like the upcoming W8 vs W7 version of Sophie's choice.

Plus, Pangolin > Lynx!

Now, I do prefer .04 to .10 usually just for stability, but yeah, it's not like the XP vs Vista vs W7 vs W8 situation really, you can keep the parts you like of older versions.

Prior to the solar prominence I was using the full size version of this btw:

For some reason the icons in Irix are all vector-based. Why SGI thought that was a good idea in 1994 I do not know, but the wheel you can see on the left of the file browser lets you zoom in and out and everything stays sharp :)


My compute server runs IRIX, but it's headless and I only telnet into it... I haven't touched 4dwm in years... It was very slick for its day, if you like that sort of thing.

I like the dymaxion one myself, but I didn't code the wallpaper program, the script I had worked ok but not nearly as well as this one.

Btw, in case you can't tell, that's a real updated satellite image.

Check out the weather patterns and whatnot. :D

Real-time Sunlight Wallpaper is a bit more than a simple wallpaper. A simple wallpaper can only "enchant" your desktop with a beautiful image. However, Real-time Sunlight Wallpaper can offer so much more. The sunlight get updated every 30 minutes and a unique clouds display every 3 hours. Because it can track down clouds movement, Real-time Sunlight Wallpaper can prove to be a great observation tool for those who want to observe various meteorological phenomenons' (especially huge storms, hurricanes, etc).

I'll save the fora some bandwidth by just saying that I recently cropped a new desktop for my dual monitor setup out of this breathtaking r/EarthPorn submission. (The version I'm actually using doesn't look right anyway as I've cut out the bit behind the bezels so that it matches up.)

Yes, I read Bleach, I know it's terrible, but at this point I have been waiting to see certain things explained for so long I gotta finish it out.

Plus:
Spoiler:
Zaraki vs Unohana is like daaaaang.


Edit: oh yeah, the weird stacking is due to the room constraints I have here, wound up with the old smaller monitor on a shorter table underneath the new one, the slight offset is to center the bit of distortion from the bottom screen having different pixel density which makes the mouse move across at a slightly different rate, I lined it up exactly as it is physically (with the bottom screen slightly offset to the left) but that makes the mouse "lag" from the pixels wind up centered near the bottom left corner of the top screen.
