No, it's like a screenshot that can be generated hitting the Prt Scrn key.

Please don't even type "TSK". It's also an outside username that reminds me of a total samurai demonic reject from GA Junkyard Central; he'll give those with him 666... :roll:

Not what we normally call Christmas-y, but in the same spirit in a sense. A reminder of the time I spent working on cleaning up residential areas in New Orleans after Katrina. Someone side-walk chalk drew this at one of the camps where food and supplies were distributed, and us volunteers, as well as those displaced from their homes, could stay.
Grace and Peace,

It is best not to have so many icons on the desktop; or at least have a dock (like Mac OS X) to arrange them in. All those GFX and text could potentially slow down the overall PC performance, take up more memory, or both.

Let's see.. The average icon file is about 2.18 KB. Let's say someone has 150 icons on their desktop. They would be sacraficing about 327 KB of RAM to the icons. I guess you're right, I should clear up some icons to save my 1534 MB of RAM from being devoured by my icons. Factoring in the text, I should probably go get a RAM upgrade.
