What does your desktop look like? As you can tell I like mine nice and neat, guess it would explain why I have 10 partitions as well :thumbsup:

Well i have no background but it is not neat at all. My entire screen is filled with little notepad icons :thumbsup: I am addicted to using notepad as, well a notepad, and it tends to cause a bit of clutter.

No screensaver, three shortcuts on a basic blue background.

All those annoying little icons are in a folder on the task bar. Nothing permanent on the desk top but a transparent clock in the corner.

Have you tried the neat MS PowerToy that changes your wallpaper at set intervals? Every half hour there is a new background picture displayed.

Am considering using that for a clock. Put a set of pics on different colored backgrounds and know by the comibination what time it is.

Linux Mandrake 10.0 KDE Desktop Bliss.jpg and LinXP toolbar (coded by raw)
The "Start" menu and quick launch is fully functional (including AOL) and when i'm not using my LinXP theme this is the day to day desktop

And here is AOL in action (yes on Linux,don't ask :thumbsup: )

What language do you code in Raw?

Basic (on a TI 99-4A - shows my age), C, C++, CGI/PERL, Bash Shell, some Korn Shell (anyone still use this shell??), lil pieces of PHP, Visual Basic (blah), Karamba scripts, I'm learning Qt and I just installed Runtime Revolution which is a cross platform development tool (I haven't really done anything with it yet).


Using wine or some other emulator?

No emulation:
InstantAOL is a straight C hack from the Gateway Internet Device.
DirtyPlates did most of the work, I just fixed some code to run with my setup.
