Screenshots, whee!  In-game, desktop, you name it.  Remember to keep the size down (600x600), and just link to a bigger one.

My stab at it - from my laptop:

This here would be both a game screenshot and my present desktop background.

Yes, it is.

the little bar at the top hides itself  to free up more real estate.

Doing the whole screenshot thing made me realise just how long I've had that image as my background. So I changed it; here's  something a little more busy.

Here's mine.

Well, the image at least.  I don't have a single desktop icon except for the recycle bin, though, so the image itself is good enough.

I took the picture myself (elsewhere in my photobucket account, I have a smaller version of the original photo) one day when it was really foggy and caught the sun just right to give a burst of light behind this tree.  I'm not really used to fog, so I had to get a picture or two.

Can also right-click on it, should be a delete option.

Could also be that you have to turn on the classic desktop for that stuff to work again.  I don't like the XP style.  So much rounded wasted space!  Must... maximize... useable area!

The observant -- and initiated :) -- will notice the Gentoo doing its thing (compiling), the Seamonkey Suite (I love unofficial ebuilds), and the UDE window manager. I don't particularly like desktop icons cluttering my workspace.

i don't know if my USE flags are obscene, but I do have a USE flag for offensive :)

I'm thinking of migrating to LFS after my recital is done. Portage/emerge... nice and all, but I still want to move to more of a ./configure&&make&&make install sort of environment.

On the other hand, I feel a touch guilty for having to use my old debian xorg.conf...

Umm... please explain. According to this, the BLFS book gives some advice on how to install a package management system, but to quote directly, "Dealing with package management takes the focus away from the goals of these books—teaching how a Linux system is built."

I started compiling LFS, but didn't know how to do certain things and got frustrated when the toolchain (namely, GCC) wouldn't install properly. I think I know what the problem was (I should have created a new make.conf, I think), but I do remember there being nothing RPM-ish about it. It really was a matter or ./configure && make && make install.

Some LFS-based distros -- for example, dyne:bolic or Yoper -- can use .rpm files and have package management utilities, but that's not really an aspect of LFS, but of the individual distros.

The LFS stuff that I've done have always come in RPM format.  Hence the ick.  Perhaps things have changed since then.
