Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

I love the wallpaper. I used to own a Commodore 64 back in the day, and it was a great machine. This particular wallpaper takes me back. *sniffs nostalgically*

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

This is my latest... on another of my vintage systems!



This is on my PowerBook Duo 2300c which I had loaned to a family and recently got back so I can use it at the library. At about 5 pounds, it weighs about as much as any of the books I usually carry with me.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

I really don't miss the commodor64, at all then again I am more info management the machine code development back then ,,, and now although when I had my commodor i was learning 32 bit architecture and machine programming so the commodor was not useful as I was progressing into unix before they came out with C.. it was all pascal and such. api, was that what that program was called nononoon apl there it is.

any such way.. this is the image of my desk now..



and this is the actual desk top background.


actually I liked playing "jumpman" on the C64 really fun when i was messed up back then which was most of the time.

Same here. I gave my Commie away when I bought my first Mac. I regret that -- giving away the Commie, not buying the Mac. I'd love to have it to show my kid what computers were like back in Teh Dark Ages.

Ah yeah. One of the first "canned" games I had for the C64 was strip poker. Nothing says sexy like pixelated boobage.

This is a still from an upcoming Superbowl ad that features a kid as Darth Vader. The commercial is for a car company and it is funny.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

New computer is built and operational. I had a few problems with drivers, but it all works now.

I'm fussy about wallpapers. Too high contrast and icons can get lost in there. Too low contrast and the image looks wrong. Too concrete and the background is distracting. Too abstract and the image feels bland... I'm using a variation on my old wallpaper at the moment, that feels nicely balanced to me.
