A joke [Jun. 18th, 2002|08:20 am]
Peter Sheil
The first year student had just gotten a beat up old VW Beetle
from his parents. He took it for a spin but misjudged the curve
and overturned the car directly between the house of Mr. and
Mrs. Smith and Mr. and Mrs. Balls

...Luckily, he was pulled out by the Smiths.

* What your computer says about you * [Jun. 18th, 2002|11:56 am]

Psychologists say that a computer's desktop can tell you as much about a
person's personality as their real desk.

My work PC has a plain blue background 16 icons, Office short-cut bar and 6 faststart icons next to the start button. It runs Windows 2000 ... slowly.

My home PC has a picture of stone henge as a background and a minimum assortment of icons for things I use scattered randomly over the desk top. It runs Windows XP (it was pre-installed is my only excuse).

I scatter temporary icons on the desktop - it is a convenient temp folder you can always find:) I also run diferent screen savers depending on my mood and what I'm doing. If I'm cutting CDs then everything not required is shut down and the screen saver is off. I think I have a weather screen saver from bbc.co.uk at the moment - but it rarely starts as the PCs are either being typed on rapidly or are locked.

What does your desktop say about you? Go on admit it - tell us all your darkest secrets :)))
