Will that cause any problems? I read in a Macworld article that re-naming your Macintosh HD could cause problems down the road...

Renaming is no problem, but special charakters in hd name like the apple or even a space can cause troubles

Then why is it called "Macintosh HD" (note the space) by default?

WTF is your problem? Seriously. In every other reply you make on this board you're critisising someone and being rude in general.
This is how I like my desktop. If you're into something else, it's all good, but what does it matter to you how I have mine set up?

Oh, and this little 'outburst' wasn't just for this post. You been acting like an ass in several other threads I've read here.
And you won't find anyone in Sweden named Wolfgang, unless he's like a German immigrant or something

I'm wondering... Is benign=catsank?
catsank vanished at some point from the MacNN forums..
Benign appeared recently and their overall "posting style" look a lot alike.. eventhough catsank could be very funny sometimes..

I was wondering the same thing a couple days ago I'm now pretty sure they are one and the same. Didn't benign post that Titanic sinking picture in one of the threads some time ago? I remember catsank using that way earlier. And I was starting to hope that these forums can go on without another smart ass ...

I guess, but wouldn't it be better if everyone could just show respect towards each other?
Sorry for taking it up in this thread anyway, I realize it's for desktop postings and not bickering, I just got really annoyed

Even Apple isnīt perfect
There was a iTunes version which deleted the entire Home folder if the hd name had a space in it,
I think itīs because different apps uses different methodes to find/write files, for example the terminal uses / for a path, this means / wouldnīt be allowed in file names but the finder uses : like every app should do on the mac in os 9 and below every app did that but since os x is a unix system which always uses / you get some troubles, and if a file name contains a space you have to write a \ in the terminal so it knows this is not an extra command but still the file name.

I will not give you a 100% gurantee that everything is correct but I will give a 99% one

I hope you understand everything because english isnīt my first language.

Hold it right there cowboy, it was just a question!

And as for the benign thing. Like digitaljames said, the ignore feature works perfectly.

And I love "boring screenshots" but that might be due to the fact that I live close to zzee germans.

mhm Iīm german but I donīt like "boring screenshots" but everyone should post their screenshots some like it this way, others like it the other way, but that Iīm one of the others doesnīt mean that I have a problem (or even hate) the others (now itīs getting confusing ) But I have a problem with guys who always say "oh this screenshot is boring donīt post those screenshots again!" If you say it one time itīs ok everyone who wantīs to know that knows it now but post it that often is just going on the nerves of everyone (I donīt mean you mrfrost with this)

I think I write too much

I posted a screenshot some months ago too but no one liked it

simplicity and minimalism produce elegance. Its like modern art/furniture. If you like your desktop to be clean, minimalistic, and modern, it's likely that your room, house, dorm or whatever, will run parallel to that.

So if you like f*cked up desktops with sh*t all over the place, there's a chance that your house may look exactly the same!

I respect people's opinions and their tastes.

In my opinion, minimalism is very cool.

Have you tried either Fruitmenu or Ittec CM's ?

Fruitmenu 3.2
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12974

Ittec 2.1
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/15040


Open menu's good if you are Japanese
or a JEdit user, But once I tried it for a
while, I found the others proved to be
much more useful/powerful -even with
the excellent 'Artman21's' supplied scripts.

thanx, but openmenu works great for me, simple, easy to customize...
like having access to whatever i want, wherever i want!

dockblock rocks, tho...i can disable the dock when i want to work fullscreen...

That 'crap' is the only thing that makes
your room or digital desktop unique to
you - A minimalist's world is a world without
texture - bland and devoid of personality.
Fascists have always made the best
minimalist's lovers.

This thread is to show off your GUI
enhancements, How you make your
'out of the box uniform mac' into your
own creation, possibly unique computing
experience - just showing a new desktop
pic every couple of weeks is so uncreative
( So lacking in any customizational thought) as
to deserve to be forever stuck in a windowed
dominated world - a fascists world.

That no-one hacks their system in ever new
and unique ways anymore is very sad.

maybe...lighten up? how we each use our mac IS what makes life interesting. i LIKE a mimimalist desktop, i like space...not sure where fascism fits into that.
use shapeshifter, openmenu, ucontrol, mighty mouse, dockblock, imote, etc to customize my user experience, the most important part of using a computer.

by dictating what is or isn't acceptable...aren't you guilty of fascism yourself?

let everyone have fun their own way; even you could be enjoying this.

Fascism.. ? Uh... Ok. Someone has bigger issues.
By 'crap' I meant 'clutter', as in 'useless junk'. I have my Mac, pencils, paper, my DVD collection and a number of posters bascially in my room other than the furniture. That's enough for me, ya dig?

My Mac is customized. Not for anyone else to like it, but for me to do so. I have a theme with a matching desktop and matching icons, and a few extra apps (like Another Launcher, On My Command etc) which is enough for me. I don't need 100 different Konfab widgets and such cluttering up my desktop.

And like fisherKing said, by dictating how others should live their life (digital and not), doesn't that make you a form of fascist?
Lighten up and let people have their own tastes.

BTW, it would be fun to see how your desktop looks. It must truly be a thing of wonder, seeing as how you can tell everyone else what to do with theirs.

Sure you can:
Http://www.badidea99.de/MacDesktop.jpg


The app with the VU Meters is MacAmp Lite X and it cannot be shared by another app but as far as I remember AudioHijack also has the same VU meters and then you can share it with every other app I think!

edit:
I forgot - if you use my desktop then please post a screenshot!

Do you have metallifizer or w/e installed to turn finder's metal off? If you do, try turning it off, or excluding the finder.
