Since I got an iBook, it's mac OS X only at home. And at work mainly the Unix family (Linux, Solaris and even VxWorks).

For me OS X is without a doubt the most user-friendly (and it's got the Unix shell for the geeks! ).

Since noone seems to want to guess, I'll just tell you.

It's the Greek God Poseidon (known to the Romans as "Neptune") and all his manly manliness.

Does Poseidon/Neptune have that veil or wings or whatever it is?

Anyway, I tripple the IndyCon background.

Well, figured this might be a good place to run my post count up, so I can score an avatar. I just chose this image for my desktop last week.

Nice wallpaper there Methos. I don't see a point in posting my new desktop. It's just the new wallpaper from IndianaJones.com - the one from Raiders of him running from the giant boulder.

A little fiddling in Photoshop and one delectable Vampyros Lesbos still becomes a groovy desktop.

Good times.

My desktop used to be Carth Onasi from KOTOR for a long time. But I felt like I needed a change.

Hardee-har-har

I know it is a little busy, but actually it's interesting to look at while I wait for my WiFi to connect.

There's a hidden Mickey in there. A ton of Skulls, a Dragon. I see new things in it every day.
