January Desktops

Recommended Posts

Here's hoping we all have a fantabulous 2012, as apparently there may not be a 2013. :)

Well I had to do a quick change. Got a new monitor yesterday and some of my desktops don't fit (including the one above,so I'll have this for now.

You know what I like the moon for? Tides.

 

Watched a documentary recently about the affects on the old Earth if the moon slipped from it's gravitational pull.

 

Apparently a possibility.

 

We would experience a rather large tide ... but probably just the one. Then again, if it doesn't happen before Dec this year, it could be purely academical.

 

This is a small excerpt from the documentary.

How nice, Winapp!

 

I don't know if this is acceptable, but I have over 21,000 wallpapers.

 

Mostly 1600X1200, but some 1920X1200 etc...

I have a seprate collection that I don't have set to slideshow, but I have 442 set to slideshow, all 1920x1080 because that's the size of my main display.

I have mostly 1600X1200 because I wanted to standardize the pictures.

 

I intend later on to convert the PNG & other formats to JPG, since most photo editors do support JPG, but they might (or might not!) support PNG or other formats.

 

The ones that are smaller, I will decide if they are worthy of keeping. I mostly want wallpapers that scale nicely to larger monitors.

So I guess IMAO's suggestion of nuking the moon is out?

Probably! We have missiles that can go into space, but I don't know if that can go that far :c

JPG stinks. PNG is better.

 

I wouldn't say it stinks. PNG is arguably better, but if you have a JPG in sufficient quality, it can be indistiguishable to PNG to most people.

__________

 

Let's say you take Webshots & they extract a photo to Wallpaper.BMP (10 MB).

You open it with Windows paint & click Save As\JPG & it reduces it to 500 KB.

 

Looking at the pics side by side, you can't see any difference. Which would you rather store?

A 10 MB, or a 500 KB file? At 10 MB each, my over 21,000 Wallpapers would be 210,000 MB (210 GB) compared to 10,500 MB (10.5 GB) stored as JPG.

__________

 

While I have a 1,000 GB external drive (1 TB), I kinda don't want to use 210 GB just for pictures if I can get (almost) the same quality stored in just 10.5 GB.

 

This is just an example here, but I do have over 21,000 wallpapers...

I think you mean 1,000GB ;) 1,000,000GB is a petabyte

 

'Sides, PNG is only marginally larger, and way smaller than JPEG

You are right, Winapp! Thanks for catching my err.

 

I edited it to correct it after I re-read it. Thanks!

 

Yes, I meant 1,000 GB (1TB).

How does a guy with hundreds of tabs open in his browser ever manage to see his wallpapers :)
