Humor I shall make no bones about the fact that this request is purely filler material, but such threads have been a success in years past. Dear OSNews readers please furnish us with your wondrous and diverse desktop screenshots and machine specifications! Considering that I have used the same wallpaper and platform since 2006, there is no great insight that I can bring to the table. Also, whilst I'm here--OSNews Asks: How have mobile OSes changed your habits this year?

yup, sloppy, way too much crap open, but here you go:

FYI, OSX 10.6, MacBook Pro i7 with the hi-rez matte screen.

Working on two things: developing a multi-scale Schrodinger equation, and writing a NATIVE Cocoa DjVu widget (The only DjVu viewer for OSX is the QT based abomination, I'm so fed up with it which is why I'm writing a real Cocoa DjVu viewer).

Nice! I love seeing snapshots of peoples' work/code... I'd share mine but it would get me fired. ;)

I suppose I could show some personal, Euphoria code I was working on at one point (implemented a web site in Euphoria, but now I switched my server to GoDaddy and I am way too cheap to pay to be able to have a server that would support Euphoria - so PHP it is).

I'm going to set up a source forge site for it. Right now, I'm working on the scrolling behavior working correctly.

I'm following the interface definitions from Apple's PDFKit very very closely, I basically want the DjVu kit to be drop in compatible with Apple's PDFKit. Reason being, Apple's PDFKit works very nicely, and if the interface is close, it can be dropped right into PDF applications like Skim.

It's very nice seeing some TeX code again since I haven't really seen any after I left the academic world. Nice and disturbing at the same time as my general feeling is that any concerns for quality are relegated to the afterthought status. Moreover, there's nobody I revere as much as M. Knuth in this computing world of ours.

Oh, almost forgot: you have some scary readings!
