For windows, you'll need an app like Windowblinds from http://www.stardock.com/ or StyleXP from http://www.tgtsoft.com/

Both have manuals on how to use, but neither are free

My desktop owns the rest of yours! lol (i'm kidding...)

(in case you're wondering... i use dual screen monitors (17" LCD on left 19" Widescreen LCD on right) - That's what causes that black streak at the right hand side bottom)

EDIT: Love your desktop image btw Karsemple - Can we download that anywhere? lol

I'm using ObjectDock as well. It's vertically centered on a side of my screen; but, it's set to hidden, to be activated by mouse hover.

As for those who don't wish to spend money on WindowBlinds or StyleXP, there's the manually-done uxtheme.dll hack which isn't too hard, and doesn't require any third-party software to use unincluded themes. I chose this route and it works great.

Very nice photograph.

How was the aquarium? I know it only opened (somewhat) recently, I hear it's incredible. Too bad I'm in Toronto, Georgia's a bit too far to go on a day trip... :(

From left to right, the applications in my dock are:

Photoshop CS2, Illustrator CS2, InDesign CS2, QuarkXPress 7 Passport, Firefox, Safari, iTunes, Azureus, Acquisition, Thunderbird, and Adium.


Is that Mac an iMac G3 600mhz? I'd like to install Tiger but i've heard that it's slow on G3's. I don't think that is true though.

Is Tiger any good on 600mhz G3's?
