I spent some time before going to work yesterday spiffying up Aslan‘s desktop. :D I’m not really much of a “change wallpaper every now and then” person — in fact, there would be times I hardly notice my wallpaper. Or I’d have no wallpaper at all because of my computer’s slowing down. ^^; Hee. But since I know Aslan can take it…okay, let’s just go to the desktop screenshot already:

Summer Desktop!

Don’t you just love how cheerful it looks? :D It’s no secret that I love sunflowers, and a few days before I fixed Aslan’s, Guilo’s (my office computer) is already on sunflower mode. I decided to look for one for Aslan, and found this amazingly HUGE and bright sunflower wallpaper somewhere online. :D Whee. Looking at it always makes me smile. :)

Icons on my desktop are only two: my hard drive and my torrents folder, which is currently empty. Heh. See I made the hard drive icon into a sun, so it’s really summer?

Stuff on my dock: Finder, iCal, Mail (I sometimes use this ^^;), iTunes, iPhoto, PhotoBooth, System Preferences, Firefox, Adium, MS Word, MS Excel, Photoshop, Transmission, TextWrangler, MAMP, VLC, Keyboard Cleaner, Heroes of Might and Magic 5 and Grab, which I used to take the screenshot. And of course, the trash bin. :D That may seem a lot, but believe me, I’ve seen other people’s Macs with a FULL and tiny dock. :P

Oh, and finally, I installed ShapeShifter, this program that changes the themes for Mac OS X, and my theme right now is called Fantastic. Like I said, it makes everything look so cheerful. :D

This definitely makes me excited for summer. Which reminds me, maybe I should change my office desktop from the plain sunflower on white background into something similar like this — all blue and yellow? Hm, why not?

Summer’s hereeee! I can feel that this summer is definitely going to be better than the last — I have two beach trips to look forward to. :P And probably more to come! Good thing I have good travel insurance. ;)

Have a great day ahead, everyone. :D

Happy Holidays from Mac!

One of the reasons I became a Mac convert was because of their Get A Mac ads which my teammate made me watch one day at work. I have to admit these commercials were very funny (and very smug), and I think the actor who plays the Mac is cute. :> Well he is! I guess it’s part of their advertising campaign, to make the Mac look good (which they really do) and make the PC look entirely boring by making them do only computations (which is not entirely true). Their commercials also make fun of Windows Vista a lot (heh), and continue to stress the point that Macs can run both Mac OS X and XP and Vista better than PCs do. I can’t answer that because I haven’t put XP in Aslan yet, but it seems as if they run just fine. I do feel sorry for PC in their ads (especially because I work for a PC company), but still, their commercials never fail to bring a smile or a laugh.

This year’s Christmas commercial is just as funny. If we’re friends in Yahoo! Messenger or gTalk, you might have seen my status: He sees you when you’re in sleep mode. This is where I got that line:

Hee hee! =)) It’s pretty desperate, but I just find it funny. :) But I still like using a PC (but I love using a Mac), especially since Guilo, my office PC is doing a superb job (so far). :D

Happy Holidays from Aslan!
