then again, compare it to MS Windows GUI from the same time (from any time), and you'll see that it's actually quite good

I suggest you look it up.
Yeah, I have it on my Nokia 6600 as a QT .3gp file. I think I like his short on Batman vs Predator & Alien better but it's still pretty good.

Nothing too original, using my standard setup of docks, Synergy, and Adium that I've used for months and months. The desktop is a slightly modified version of Struggle that's posted over at pixelgirl.

Yeah, you're right. Superman looks a bit too polished but has a good jawline that I believe Superman should have. Batman was a bit weird with those blue eyes. They outta have put a dark shade underneath the mask or something. But I love everything superhero-like. Just don't give me any of that Catwoman-Halle Berry-crap.

I believe that was supposed to be his night-vision lenses, but all it did was back up Alex Ross' contention that Batman looks scarier with his regular eyes rather than lenses.

And, I went ahead and registered DragThing. I had thought about it before but could never find the time to get it set right. Hopefully, I won't have many more questions on it and can post the updated screen shot sometime soon.

I agree. Apparently so did Solidfox because he built an alternate color under the graphite appearance option and it kills the yellow. I would love for him to finish the work he started.

I don't remember where I originally found it actually, hmmm, it has to be either spymac or pixelgirl though. Try there, good luck.

Mods: iTunes bar (skin thanks to Lord Sith), Timezoneabulator, Calander bar, and DragThing.




Finally a theme that will go well with the wallpaper I made. Thank you to whomever made it.

A bit big, 1.6MB, for a desktop pic. I stopped about halfway through. The preview looks interesting though.

I like that some people believe that making their desktop screenshot a .png makes it look better. It doesn't .jpg still rules the world when it comes to posting screenshots. Even though that i'm on a 2mbit connection I don't want to sit and wait for a 1.xmb desktop screenshot to load. And yes, I know that I can just stop clicking on the previews but then where's the fun!?

That BlackCherry theme looks exacty like something Dextop would make

Just so you know; It was not a direct attack. But a general assumption.

I look at it like this: It's a freaking screenshot of the desktop. Why bother making it a .png !?

It's ofcourse not my business what other people do. I usually make my screenshots at medium quality or a tad higher if I see that some colors are off-beat.

Using png usually results in a smaller file size relative to a jpg of similar quality.

There is no reason for 1+MB screenshots, though. Save for web...

Thanks, nice to look at. A bit dark of a theme, but the DTP is interesting.
