    It's simple. Less shortcuts = tidy, faster computer.


    Faster?
    Not since 1989, mate. slant

    And tidier?
    Well, maybe, but a computer is a tool for me. Much as I'd like a tidy shed, I still keep my hammer, drill and pliers where I can get them without even having to turn on the light. I.e. in plain sight, able to get them without even thinking about it.

    As you can see, I have dozens of shortcuts on my desktop.
    There are all things I want/need immediate access to. I can do so now by one glance, one click.
    Otherwise I'd have to rummage around program sub-sub-subfolders or remember dozens of keyboard shortcuts.

    Like I said: this really works for me, but then my PC history is one of graphic interfaces.
    It's completely drilled into me.

    Let's revive this topic!

    After almost half a year with just a boring black background, I decided to put up a picture again.
    Yes, it's my favourite actress again. What do you think?

    Desktop

    I think the green in itself is a very ugly colour but I always enjoy choosing a background colour that is somewhere in de picture.
    smile

    Oh and as you can see, the weather here is wonderful! :sunny:

    Honestly not being a smartass....but who is that? confused

    (Nice clean layout by the way...quite different from my clutter. slant

    Incidentally: very grey and overcast here, 13 degrees...but beautiful autumn colours. I should take a picture from my window).

    Here is the view from my window...but it didn't come out quite right: the light and colours seems much more red. It's too yellow-ish in the photo. slant

    Maybe it's the lighting? If it's as dull grey where you are now as it is here then it's hardly ideal conditions for photos.

    I changed my post. I wrote that I would take a picture. And then I thought, I don't feel like taking pictures right now, so I deleted it. But I took pictures anyway.

    You live in a modern appartment building or is that from work?

    Could very well be. It's a pretty shitty picture. slant

    Fair enough. smile

    It's pretty modern. From 1993, I think?
    It's OK.
    There's far more green than you would think from that picture, but I would agree it's not the most "character-full" of places: being the DIY-phobe that I am and with the budget that is available, I desperately need to live in an as maintenance-free zone as possible! (Oh, and it's just a five minutes walk from either the city centre or the train station, which are serious bonuses!).

    I expected a warning too. It did say in the screen 'no CF card', but after I could look at the picture I had just taken. So the pictures must be on the camera somewhere??

    As always when I make a new desktop, I cleaned up my desktop before I saved the screenshot. smile
    Before it was just black and half filled with icons and stuff I never use.

    Let's revive this one again!!

    You know, when I have lots of days off, like now, I really enjoy searching the net for high resolution photos. It's so much fun. The 1920x pics are still sharp on our TV, that looks so cool.

    I think a while back 1920x was the largest I could find, now there are many 2560x photos and widescreen too.

    Still in Persia mood, but after having searched the net I may change it soon!

    P.S. I always feel a bit guilty for not having a photo of my kids on my desktop... I'm not very much a family picture person I guess.
