For a screener, you could have been more precise. For example, what about the view from your window?

Hi Gary,

Thanks a lot for the insight.

Now I know what inspired the designer of BA's "Wings" scheme ...

Here's mine!

The weird keyboard was bought a few years ago when I had very big problems with hands and wrists. I'm feeling better now but just love the keyboard, it's great once you get used to it. the "normal" keyboard is there so that people other than me can use the computer. For the same reason you'll see a mouse to the right although I use a pen myself.

To the far right you'll see that new Powermac laptop I bought a few weeks back to fix Mac related problems with. It's a lovely machine although I haven't quite figured it out yet.

Nice 22" Gary, what resolution do you use when you screen pictures?

Looks like Johan's is in 1600 pix wide, judging by the borders.

Nice workstation Gary! How do you find the screen for editing??? Have you got it calibrated with a spyder???


P.S. I don't mean to criticise but, you said my spelling was bad.

Chris - Yeah, I noticed how bad my spelling was after the 'edit post' function had expired  Sad

Thomas - Wallpaper is due to be renewed this year but my heart is not in it yet. I hate re-decorating.

Christian - If you had a BAe146 shot from the roof terrace in the queue and was recently rejected.......that was me!

Craig - I am screening at 1152 x 864 on an Nvidia GeForce 4Ti 4600.
