    I'm actually surprised to see that most of you don't make more use of the pager. I would have to post multiple screenies to show my setup, because I make extentsive use of virtual desktops to seperate tasks. Having just recently discovered KDE's 'activities', I'm actually converting to that functionality instead, as it seems to be a more configurable version of virtual desktops.

    The next version of KDE (4.9) does that to an extent, iirc.
    I use only 2 though (categorized on the basis of what I'm doing)... more than that becomes a management nightmare for me.

    Just as you cook in a kitchen, watch TV in the den, and sleep in the bedroom, it's good to perform different virtual tasks in different workspaces. If you need to do something else, just go to that other room (switch workspace). Whereas most people compute as if though they lived in a 1-room house!

    My desktop, in case anyone is still interested.
    Ignore the second screen. Windows just likes to make a copy of both screens in a dual monitor setup. They're the same anyway (save for the windows I usually have open on it) and I can't be bothered to remove the second one.

    ^_^;

    Thanks to the support of a couple of guys who grok the "GIMP" source I have been able to greatly improve the overlay code in my version of "xsetroot".

    I still would have posted because everything but the actual background is hidden normally but because laserlight teased me about this I decided to go ahead and post my desktop with the overlay code in place.

    The overlay (an image) changes every hour; yes, they are all the same style of artwork, but no they aren't all "Ponies".

    [Edit]
    I did not draw the overlays by the way.

    I will edit this post again or start a new post with the actual artists when I can find his "deviant" page.

    That would depend on your definition of "bronie".

    But yes, I am a fan of the show. Also "Animaniacs" and classic "WB".

    I have a penis and drink scotch, but that's about the extent of my "manliness".

    Spiders exist only to remind me that somewhere deep down I am actually a little girl.
