Desktop Tag

I've been tagged by Shane and his Desktop meme.
I've been tagged in a few memes and have finally decided to start one of my own. But what should the meme be about? Simple, what does a blogger's desktop look like.

So, what does your humble Devil's desktop look like? Well, I've never been a fan of bright, overpowering desktop pictures; this is partly because Apple's OS lets you see the desktop behind application windows by default (incidentally, this difference is one of the reasons that I dislike Windows: I find it... um... claustrophobic not being able to see the desktop).

Add to that the fact that I am both vain and proud of a few pieces of my artwork, and it is inevitable that a piece by me should be my desktop image. As it happens, it is a faded version of Last Chapter of Dreaming.

For those of you wondering about the grey borders, rather than minimise all of the windows that I had open, I used Apple's F11 Exposé to zip them to the edge of the screen.

I need to tag some vaguely technically literate bloggers and I suppose that I must do so. Therefore, I shall tag the following:

Have fun with it, oooh yes. And for Mac OS X, you press Cmd-Shift-3 to take a screen-shot; for Windows... Well, I haven't a clue, I'm afraid.

Ctrl-"Prnt Scrn" on my Dell laptop.

"PrintScreen" button alone is enough to do it. That's a whole two less keystrokes than a mac.

I thought the Mac OS was meant to be more user friendly than Windows.

Now which is more intuitive, "Cmd-Shift-3" or "Print Screen"?

Ah, that F11 trick is rather impressive. Unfortunately F9 and F10 just brighten my screen. I think I will be browsing the help section tonight±

Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
