After settling in with WattOS, I've also settled on a desktop to stick with.  ;)

Don't worry...I won't keep posting desktop pictures if I change it again.  ;D

Icons are Lubuntu Box icons.

Indeed...it is Amsterdam...only backwards. I flipped the picture so the conky would show better on the right side.

By the way, after you boasted about your 1 TB SSD and 16 GB of RAM in another thread...if you enlarge the picture and look at the conky, you'll see that this bad boy is LOADED with a 72 GB hard drive and a little over 900 MB of RAM. LOL!  :D

...and with WattOS, it purrs like a kitten.  ;)

Nice scrot you got there Dan. Wow, with specs like that it suggests that you are running wattOS on some really nice vintage hardware. :)

Yeah, this thing is a beast! LOL

It's a HP dx5150. One of the earlier 64 bit computers (complete with a floppy disc drive). I got it from a Library that was getting new computers...it had Windows XP on it, but it was completely frozen up and no one could do anything with it. Thought I'd take a chance and installed Linux on it, and it has worked great since then. It just took me a while to find the best distro for it...aka...wattOS. ;) I use the 32 bit version though...thinking it'll use a little less RAM.  :)

I have a free Weebly website that I use for uploading screenshots. I'm able to make a thumbnail by uploading 2 of the same picture...then resizing one of them down to thumbnail size on Weebly. So, it takes 2 pictures...a regular sized one and a thumbnail to use this code...

Code: [Select]
[url=http://link.to.your.fullsized.image][img]http://link.to.your.thumbnail.image[/img][/url]
If something like that isn't an option, I think this website is pretty popular for uploading photos to, and it gives you a thumbnail link...

I have to say this though...I don't know if it was due to me signing up with that site or if it was coincidence, but a couple of days after joining that site, I started getting TONS of SPAM in my email.

I personally like xomf.com. There's no registration...just upload as much as you want. It gives you forum code for the images you upload too.

I'll post mine this weekend. I'm pretty particular about my setup so I'm figuring out the ins and outs of i3 and it's configuration capabilities. So far I've moved the bar to the top of the screen and I'm changing some of the bar information "blocks". I also got rid of the window titlebars to maximize screen real-estate on my tiny Chromebook.

Here's my Microwatt desktop...in keeping with biff's use of green, I decided to use one of the wallpapers that I had made previously and added the wattOS logo to it.

I stinkin' love Microwatt!  ;D

Very nice! Would you mind sharing that wallpaper?
