After much delay here’s my contribution to the computer desktop festival 🙂 I won’t bore you with the excuses.
I use Geektool heavily to turn my desktop into a dashboard. Its far better than Apple’s infernal widget ridden annoyance..
At the bottom is the met dept’s sat image which gets automatically grabbed every 12hrs. Its the surest way I know if its rain 🙂
The calendar on the top right is output from the cal UNIX app assisted with a sprinkling of shell scripting. Web browser is Camino which I use almost exclusively to access wordpress. I use 3 other browsers but that’s another story.
The floating Earth and Moon are two “eye candy” applications called Earth-dock and Moon Dock. Had them for years.
I use my mac via the command-line hence the heavily customised terminal app that is launched at log in.
I’ll post links to these apps when I get the time. But enough about my Geeky computing habits.
Here’s a list of peeps who haven’t yet joined in who ought to have some interesting desktops:
- Web Alochana – hoping to see a interestingly Sinhala/biligual desktop
- His Rythmicness – a fruit user no doubt. Will there be a drumkit in the picture?
- Sittingnut – unlikely he has a desktop pic of Anne Rand but I shouldn’t speculate.
- Indi – how about a staring role for the Kottu admin screen?
- Dilantha -Which disto of Linux would it be?
- Lost Landscape – definitely like to see that portable firefox in use on some internet cafe box
Geek With an Attitude has put out an early shot 🙂
