LATELY — 22 August 2000

My Desktop

I like looking at people’s desktops. Olivia Ball has some in this directory.

At 1:1 scale, here’s my NW “Work” desk, which here features my “kick-ass” mail reader (nmh) and some python code, my NE “Netscape” desk, and my SW “Misc1” desk, which features jed editing the XML source of my home page. I don’t currently have anything on my SE “Misc2” desk.

These are all in .png format and between 80k and 150k. Netscape displays .png files incorrectly; here’s my NW, NE and SW at 1:2 scale and in .jpg format. (30k-50k.)

I’m running Helix Code Gnome on RedHat 6.2. The background (which you can’t really see) is a shot of the stairs to an apartment building in Paris. I randomly scatter URLs I might want to read sometime, but not now, on the desktop. The theme is DragDome. bash is my shell and slrn is my newsreader.
