    Whats your desktop look like?

    Just curious what other peoples desktop looks like, why you ask? Because a desktop is a wonderful thing. WONDERFUL I TELL YOU! Here's mine:



    If you don't know how to take a screen shot of your desktop do the following:
    Go to your desktop
    Find the
    PrtScn
    SysRq

    button on your keyboard. It should be right besdies the ScrLk button, or to the right of the F12 button. THen open up whatever program you use to edit graphics or view graphics, i use Photo shop then Click paste, and there ya go! save it and post it! Whats that? You don't have Photoshop? O RLY? THen If you don't have photoshop, use MS Paint OH YES! LOLZ.

    If ya think this is messy and unorganized you should see my house! My new computer is still back at the builders (7 weeks and counting...grrrrr...) getting the motherboard replaced and its desktop is much less cluttered. But I'll be workin' hard to get it messy too....



    Oh Mr. Coffee,

    To avoid stretching the page you can easily resize your photos...

    To resize photos:

    1- Open up the photo in MSPaint. MSPaint/File/Open

    2- Then navigate to where the photo is located and double click on it.

    3- It should now be opened in MSPaint.

    4- On the Toolbar go to "Image" then down to "Stretch/Skew".

    5- Depending on how much you want to reduce it, type the (%) percentages into the blued-out "Horizontal" and "Vertical" boxes.

    6- Since this photo is rather large I chose 70% for both Horizontal and Vertical. Then click "Okay".

    7- Then back over to "Edit", then down to "Save As". Rename it or just add a 1 or whatever to the end of the file name so it has a different file name.

    8- Then click the "Save" button in the "Save As" box.

    Here you go.... and the background painting is not mine.

    FinePixViewer is also great for resizing pictures. Just type in the pixels you want; http://home.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/

    Bob Clark,

    Good one, could have been maybe, but it is a painting named “Bridal Procession in Hardanger”, or “The Bridal Party in Hardanger”. It was painted by Hans Gude and Adolph Tidemand in 1848. It is considered to be Norway’s most beautiful painting from the national romantic period. The painting is actually not from a specific place here on the west coast where most of our fjords are located but rather a collage of views put into one painting. Gude did paint the landscape and Tidemand did the people, the story also says Tidemand was pissed on Gude for making the boat so small (maybe since he could not show how an excellent painter of people he was) and thereby he placed many of the peoples on the sides of the rowboat. Some naval engineers have studied if the boat would have been floating in the water the way it is due to this – who knows?

    And yours are from a movie I did see not long time ago, but can’t remember the name of the movie. Was it from the "Hannibal" movies I wonder?

    Ooops, my American-centric bias just showed through. Lewis and Clark brought along one or two iron ribbed "portable" boats (that soon sank!) and I thought maybe the artist just took liberty and painted them as wooden. The man sitting in the rear of your boat appears to be wearing an Indian headress of sorts so I thought maybe it was one of the scouts that L&C used. But upon closer inspection it may just be a three-cornered hat. The landscape looks as though it could be from the Rocky Mountains. You have really beautiful scenery in your country too.

    Norway has quite the naval history, I imagine starting with the Vikings. I've seen a few documentaries on early Viking boats and Norwegian shipbuilding both ancient and modern. And of course your RNoN. Your namesake Leif Erickson was a Norwegian/Icelandic explorer among the most famous here in the States. There's a professional NFL football team named The Vikings here in honor of him. Some believe he discovered the Americas well before Columbus by sailing up the St. Lawrence River perhaps as far as Minnesota.

    Fjord is one of my favorite words. I don't know why, it just is!

    Was it from the "Hannibal" movies I wonder?
    I thought my desktop wallpaper was from a movie but I don't know which one either. It appears as though it may have been filmed on the famous steeply inclined streets of San Francisco. Someone here should know.

    EDIT:

    Oops again. "The man sitting in the rear of your boat appears to be wearing"... ummmm... is that the bride in “The Bridal Party in Hardanger”? The artist not only made the ship appear too small but the bride to be as a rather large stoutly woman!
