This is the image in my signature, and the image on my desktop. I made it myself. Well, rather I shaded it and added the lines on the side.

I was going to make a thread about desktops but I guess I'll revive this one:

Dunno how to link to a pic of my own desktop but it doesn't matter, I cycle through a series of images anyway: mostly artwork by a mix of brush-and-easel pistoleros, from both the 19th (Alma-Tadema, Godward, Waterhouse, etc) and 20th (Virgil Finlay, Frazetta, Walter Baumhofer, etc) centuries. Occasionally I'll even descend to some exploitative bit o' half-dressed crumpet, Heaven protect us.

Hah, Infocom. Which games have you played?
I haven't really played many of the original infocom games aside from Zork. They're too sparsely implemented and undescriptive for my tastes; X object commonly yields garbage like "This is a small box. It can be opened." Andrew Plotkin (Shade, So Far), Eric Eve (Square Circle, All Hope Abandon), Emily Short (Metamorphosis, Savoir Faire), and Adam Cadre (Photopia, shrapnel) are my favorite IF authors now. I also enjoyed Anchorhead and Babel, too; the authors effectively exploit the 'interactivity' of the genre to create an atmosphere that is both creepy and engrossing at the same time (you can use 'listen' and 'smell' commands in almost every room, for example, without getting the standard Infocom replies like "You hear nothing out of the ordinary").

At least this thread gave me an impetus to finally clear some of the more useless junk off my desktop… and anything that could identify me. ;)

Picture is one my father took. Location… at the edge of the Old World.

It looks like you're using OS X 10.4. Why don't you upgrade to a newer version like Leopard or Snow Leopard? It's really easy to find both of those on bittorrent sites. I didn't pay for my upgrade to Snow Leopard (Yes, I'm a cheapskate since it was only $29).

I'm not very good with bittorrent, but if it as easy as you say to find OS upgrades (which would surprise me given they're system upgrades) I might give it a go. However I am afraid that if I do then I will be able to run EVE and thus lose my actual life.
