Subject: Show Us Your Desktop!

Written By: Kyle on 05/20/05 at 5:52 pm

Would you like to show off what you mainly do on the computer besides surf the web, and do your English assignment.  The way your desktop look could give you that so-called secret life you have.  This may also tell your personalit, too.

This is what you do:

1.  Minimize this web site and arrange the desktop the way you want it to be.  Try to put some of your mostly frequently files and programs on your desktop, along with the usual bare necessities such as the Recycle Bin.  Find an snazzy background to it, too.  8)

2.  Press Print-Scrn.  It is on the upper left-hand corner on your keyboard.  BTW, this copies that information to your clipboard, so try not to copy anything during that time period.

3.  Go into Word (or if you are that ghetto type like me, WordPad) and paste the sucker.

4.  Resize it, so it could fit on our posts.

5.  Right click it and copy it, and throw it into Paint.

6.  Save it as an GIF or JPEG file.

7.  Do your insert picture trick and away you go.  I hope I see some old Windows 95-98 ones, too.
;)

Good luck!

What I do is hit the printscreen key to capture my desktop.  Then I open up Microsoft Word and paste it in (so it becomes smaller in size).  Then I hit the printscreen key again to capture the Word screen.  Then I open up Windows Paintbrush, paste it in, and crop out the Microsoft Word stuff so only the desktop picture appears.  Then i save it as a jpeg in Paintbrush :)

"I am not religious, quite the opposite. It would seem, particularly at the moment, that in certain countries to deny having faith is virtually to admit to being a worshipper of the devil. Such is the fear, hate and hostility created by the believers of this so called all forgiving God.
    I worship nothing. Not a good lie nor a dark one. If nature is proof of God's amazing creation then I have truly seen the light, and the light is black. Nature is genius at its most cruel and savage. No benevolent God could have come up with such an outrage."

I had the same thing, actually.. back when they started, I tried downloading it, and it didn't work and almost wrecked my computer.. I don't have a good computer for gaming.. the graphics card is good enough to stream a YouTube video, but not much more.

But the point is, I never got to play it, so I removed every trace of that plague of a game from my PC.

For a year, whenever I booted up, it would play a clip from "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana ("Hello, hello, hello...") and when I turned it off, it would play a clip from Weird Al's parody of the same song, "Smells Like Nirvana" (Sianara!  Sianara!)  ;D
