January 2007 Desktops!

Post by SAK ` » Sun Dec 31, 2006 6:26 pm

It is January '07 for the other side of the world, so... a flipped picture of a train derailment. I am looking to re-modify it into a fancy and realistic GFX image.

Almost half a day early with this thread.

Maybe I should post the one that automatically updates itself every 300 seconds for as long as I have my little program running that updates it:

I'm running Ubuntu Linux with Beryl and Emerald

(for those who don't know, that means my desktop is a cool 3D cube that rotates on demand ... go to youtube.com and do a search for ubuntu beryl for quick videos to see what I mean)

So here is my Desktop image:

And here is my Skydome (the image behind the 3D cube when it rotates):
Click here for a full resolution version

Here's a screenshot of the desktop showing the cube (note the cube is semi-transparent)

PS. I feel kinda like the images might be a bit large for this thread. If anyone has any trouble, or if anyone just wants me to change the size of the images, please let me know :D

Does being married to an alt-rock singer make me cool by proxy? Well, if you are curious, they sound slightly reminiscent of Evanescence and you can check some of their tunes at http://www.anxietyofinfluence.ca :D

I too use Beryl (SVN) :). This would be the cube effect Em3rald is talking about.
