I figure, with a new desk should come a new desktop. So, here’s my new computer desktop.
(You can click through for a larger view.) I’m still using GeekTool, an app I found through Lifehacker. It allows you to put the results of terminal commands on your desktop, and have them change dynamically. The background is an image, and the three TVs with their varying logos are part of it, too. The numbers and words are via GeekTool. The top TV with the fake ESPN graphics shows the latest Phillies game and score (with live updates, which was totally accidental) from a script I wrote myself, along with what day today is (for instance, today is Tuesday). The middle TV gives the latest weather conditions and temperature, and the bottom TV has whatever song I’m playing in iTunes (if any) and today’s date (so, the 19th).
Honestly, it’s nice to have this info on my desktop because it’s a little faster to move all my windows out of the way to see what day today is than to activate Dashboard (which can get slow sometimes, and I don’t like any of the sports widgets anyway).
Now, to shower and head to the library.
