IE = Internet Explorer.
i.e.= in example

And Jenna is an old whore not a bombo. haha.
seriously ... IE = Internet Explorer? that thing exist?
i saw IE and i.e. both used for in example (if you use a bit of logic if i write IE: "random sentence explaining a example" i would surely not talk about Internet Explorer :roll: )

Well, I haven't watched a TV for about a... 8 years? :D
And I'm not in UK right now, I came back to Poland. We should stop offtoping before moderator will get mad at us :D
for mods i don't know but as the OP i don't mind a bit of OT as long as it's not totally extreme :D

Well, I don't understand your avatar art and therefore it certainly is boring to me. And what you probably really don't understand is that this is the "Desktop customization show-off club". not the "Let's just trash things that we don't understand or know about club". This thread is ALL about art, after all. GB, I love your new pencil-style avatar! :cool:
thanks for that post ;)


my current main rig wallpaper updated (by @Rezasam1 )
rework from the one in http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/desktop-customization-show-off-club.198843/page-2#post-3161039

no other customization past the WP tho ... i am out of idea but i still seek ;)

so sorry mate. but i checked the thread and i found 1) windows standard desktop, 2) apple standard desktop 3) manga desktop. I feel deceived :)
then walk off and don't comment :D or read the 1st post as it specify :
so here is the idea: show your desktop (current or past), be it a wallpaper or a full Rainmeter custom UI,
and comment instead of bashing

and i already did warn you in that post ;) (not really warning but more a "who care, read the 1st post" )
http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/desktop-customization-show-off-club.198843/page-2#post-3161039

and lastly when i checked last time thru the thread i also saw at last 2 Rainmeter user (including myself), if that's a standard ... well i'd be damned :roll:
if you don't like anime/manga arts then don't try to discriminate the user who do and use "kiddy fappercrape" to define what they like ;)

show us what you like and mean to be a desktop customization, a wallpaper is enough even for you no worries no bashing no mockery, we're adult, you know ... unless ... ah! whatever :toast:
because your 1st post here was
^ I don't see ANY customization at all, sorry.

And having tons of Links to programs on desktop is, well, so gonzo and disgusting.

My 5 cents, of course, no offense and no prayers of absolute truth included. :pimp:
at last in that one your last sentence in the post was right ;)

and on Rainmeter also if i include the 1st one in the origin post of the thread, i did a slight variation of it but ... still manga/anime oriented ;) sorry (i really need to re set up a rainmeter ... )
Houkago Play!.jpg


i had also a Roberta from Black Lagoon Rainmeter theme ... but you wouldn't know who it is, albeit the fact that Black Lagoon is a fantastic anime (well ... movies with real actors are ... boring nowadays, but that's only me :D )

Damn, you are abusing rainmeter, I counted more than 20 plugins ... how's cpu usage at idle? I used to use rainmeter with a sidebar column of system info plugins, and ditched it afterwards thanks to its inefficiency ... now I just expose few key measurements directly from afterburner to the notification area (tray bar). Now it's win7 vulgaris with a clean background:

well i guess you know why i don't use RM nowadays ... tho the CPU usage was not so hard, look at the CPU meter near the ram meter ... a near flat 0 on idle o_O
if only i could find the RM i had on Black Lagoon theme ... that one was animated (not only on the monitoring plugins )

one thing i notice when i take a look at my past RM setup .... i love "date and time redundancy" ahahah

i also like simple setup ... even with only a WP or just some tweak :)

I feel happy because you give me a little conversation, thank you Greiver. I am not a bonehead, I just thought let's "up the ante" because this thread had beatiful desktops for many pages, but the last page -or pages- was not that great. Please feel free to get a lil'motivated by me or not, it is up to you! :)
Post data: just to contribute a little more: as Windows 10 has such a nice and customizable Start Menu I have changed some of my habits. Now I do not add a single, not any, program shortcut to my "desktop", I have only some personal files, and all program shortcuts I keep them in the Start Menu. It works great, it is cleanliness!

nice panorama :)
One of the reasons I upgraded from Windows 7 is because it kept screwing up the panorama wallpapers. It kept thinking the center was the left most and the left most was the right most unless I turned on Eyefinity; something I only do when I play games because I don't like windows like Chrome filling all 3 displays. :p

It looks really amazing with IPS displays, that's for sure.

One of the reasons I upgraded from Windows 7 is because it kept screwing up the panorama wallpapers. It kept thinking the center was the left most and the left most was the right most unless I turned on Eyefinity; something I only do when I play games because I don't like windows like Chrome filling all 3 displays. :p

It looks really amazing with IPS displays, that's for sure.
i see, well it sure does look nice like that but in real that should look breathtaking indeed... (i am a mono screen user ... so i'm fine on W7 for the main rig, tho i have 8.1 on the Alpha but i also use only 1 screen )

what are your sugestion for inserting weather, calendar, cpu and ram usage gadgets for w10?
ow ow ow i missed that ... well i don't know i used W10 only for a short while on a laptop ... hum
i searched a bit thru google but didn't find anything that catch my interest.

So, @GreiverBlade, looks like Apple just loves to fool people, and most of mac users are idiots. Everyone told me "Install El Capitan, even 10.9 are good for nothing"... but 10.10/10.11 has too much bugs and too bad performance on this mac.
I couldn't get working 10.9 from torrents and my pendrive died, so I downloaded 10.7 and burned it to DVD disk, installed and updated to 10.8.3 from torrents. Then I installed combo update 10.8.5 and security patches. Works really well, every application are compatible (just look at the dock!) :D

well i have my MBP E2008 under Yosemite runs it pretty well, even if it's the infamous series with the GT8600M that plagued nVidia with a bad press due to the soldering failure (well Apple is in fault for me ... the airflow in that laptop, or any mac..., is atrocious at its best ) and judging by all the bad rating of El Capitan ... not even close to try it

Well, as you saw my post about cooling - yes, mac cooling is a crap. I had Yosemite on my T420, but I'm going to format it and install Linux or Windows 7 Pro back again. Hackintoshes are just not worth a hassle unfortunately

It is when you build a machine with with the intent of doing this. I know someone from college who has a machine with OS X compatible hardware for this very reason. He went out of his way to get stuff that would run well and it makes a huge difference.

well with enough documentation they are a breeze (mainly why i have a retail DVD of Snow Leopard and a MBP at home ... while i am totally not a mac guy )
