Cleanup Still in Progress - 11/13/04

Though CowVault tried to tear us all down again, we survived. During the cleaning process, some CSS snuck its way into a bit of the HTML. Hopefully more will be added in the next few weeks.

CowVault Strikes Again! - 10/31/04

... This time with pollution! That's right, everyone's favorite halloween character, CowVault, is at it again, terrorizing Freezee Pop (which thanks to him is no longer frozen). Cleanup will have to take place over the next week or so. Have a happy halloween and stay away from them monkeys!

You've Seen a New One, How About Old? - 8/7/04

Thanks to Devin, a new set of images has been added to Takin' Apart. He disassembled an Apple PowerBook 520 and photographed it. He even got it to run off of two 9 volt batteries!! (for about six minutes. hehe). Takin' Apart has also been changed a little to match the new Desktops section's theme. Check it out, yo!

Another Widescreen Desktop Image - 8/7/04

The latest addition to the Desktops section is an image of inter-city beauty. It is a picture of the I-10/I-19 interchange, "The Crossing," in Tucson, AZ. It was taken at the ribbon-cutting ceremony today. You can get it in resolutions proper for widescreens, dual-monitor setups, or standard 4:3.

Desktop Image Fun - 8/4/04

Oops, missed a month there. Sorry about that. Anyway, I changed all of the desktop images from being compressed as Stuffit files, to now just .zip files for better compatibility. I also added a (somewhat) new desktop image. You will recognize it as the "Mountain" image which has been around for quite some time. This though, has been modified for high-res widescreen displays and dual monitor setups. It goes up to dual-screen 2560x1600, for all of you with two Apple 30" Cinema Displays. The download links include the files for both single and dual setups. Check it out.

Three New Desktop Pictures - 6/23/04

With the refinement of the Desktops section just complete, I decided that it would be nice to add a bit more content. The three new backgrounds are titled "Sleepy," "Puppy," and "Grass" in order to keep with my original naming scheme. Check them out in the Real Desktops section.

Site Updates - 6/23/04

The main News page has been slightly altered. The Older News section has been cleaned and organized, plus Random Crap has received a face lift as well. Also, the Desktops section has been completely overhauled, to better match the rest of the site. If you experience any problems, let me know.
