Ms Mac tagged me for a meme with specific instructions.
Here’s what you need to do :
A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.
You can do a screen capture by going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). For Macs, press shift-option-3 then look for the .png file on your desktop. Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.
B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.
C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.
D. Add your name to the list of Free Viewers below with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.
The list of Free Viewers so far is:
iRonnie – I Set No Corner
Rebecca – Skippy Heart
Knoizki – A Dialogue With K
Tina – My Good Finds
Rachel – Heart of Rachel
Alice – Hello, My Name Is Alice
Julia – Julia’s Books Corner!
Marg – Reading Adventures
Holly – What Were you Expecting?
Ames – Thrifty Reader
Dev – Good Reads
Rosie – Nobody asked me…
Gabrielle – Diary of an Adult Runaway
Jo– Chez le laquet!

Oh god, it’s so boring isn’t it? I cant even claim its because of my recent re-install of Windows. Its always like that, well, I VERY occasionally add a wallpaper if I’m really into something. I picked up this minimalist habit way back in the days of 486 CPU’s. This was when every ounce of performance was needed and cosmetic touches like wallpapers and shadows under mouse pointers were deffo not needed. Maybe in these days of mega CPU horsepower I could relax a little 😉
Stuff.txt is a little file that I’ve been using for a 5 years. Its a sort of scratchpad/jotter thing, ideas for blog posts, stolen memes, addresses for people that I send birthday and Christmas cards to, all kinds of junk really. In fact I just found this in there 🙂

Yeah, I know, its a bit lame really but I must have liked it whenever I copied it from somewhere.
Photo project.txt contains an idea I am working on for (you guessed) a photo project. I don’t want to say too much but its an idea to illustrate a song through photos, probably been done before but I (think) I have a twist.
Perhaps I ought to have done this meme on the laptop, it actually has wallpaper, albeit a pre-installed Vista one.
C) I don’t really know the etiquette of tagging anyone but here goes, Michael , Rob7534 now that he is back from Camp and just to give him an excuse to blog, Jon.
D) Done and Done.
