    I thought that it would be an interesting idea if we could see how other people's desktops look like. Some are neat, some are, messy, some are crazy, etc. etc. etc..

    In order to do this, I thought each one of us could post a pic of their desktop. Having in mind that nobody has a resolution less than 800x600, I think that the pic should not be more than 500px wide (optimized too) so everybody can see it.

    You don't have to have a screen capture program to do this. While looking at your desktop just press the button "Print Screen" (usually located next to Scroll Lock). This will copy the pic of your desktop to the clipboard. Enter any graphics program (even Microsoft Paint), open a new file, and paste the pic. You know what to do next (I hope).

    You see Alex, that's the funny thing. If I swept everything into one folder like Haiko I would be soooo screwed. It must look like a huge mess but you see, I do know exactly where everything is :cool:

    The last 4 rows are cleared weekly, funny but I work best in a state of *organized confusion*

    Didn't want to offend Breeze or anyone else. As Breeze said, some people work best in a state of *organized confusion*. Something that might seem as a mess to me, is very well organized for someone else.

    So, continue posting your desktops people!

    Gordon, When I went to your page: http://www.youtrek.com/images/desktop.jpg

    That is when it appeared. I just tried it again & it happened again.

    I do not know why you are getting a popup?? I only have one on my site and that only pops on the index page, it has "YouTrek travel information and equipment" for the title. You could try the YouTrek link in the sig and tell me if it is the same popup. If it is not somebody EZULA?? Top Text?? is using my site without my knowledge.

    I have just tried the pic link and I do not get any popups. You have got me puzzled on that one.

    If you dont have a screen-capture prog, you just press the "print screen" button on your keyboard.. then you paste it into your graphic prog, resize it and then upload the file.

    By the way Alex, that's the coolest thing I have learned so far this week. Will come in very handy when I develop my online web building tutorials! Awesome [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I thought this UBB code was working before. :confused:

    @SSanf
    I am waiting for ages for your desktop to load. Did you optimize the pic at all, or the link is not working? I've had problems with viewing your pics before also. Also, why do you have a space in the name between "my_" and "desktop.jpg"? As I know (correct me if I am wrong), this might be a problem on Unix systems.
