One final screenshot

Edit: Unfortunately, the images originally included in this post are gone, because of hosting problems in late 2009. My apologies.

I think this will be the final entry. I’ve turned off commenting (or rather, sent comments to moderation) and if I get the chance, I’ll leave a note here and there about life in a new country and a new culture. For the remainder of the week, it looks like I’ll be busy with moving and packing.

Here’s one last screenshot, as one part inspiration … and one part thumb-to-the-nose to heavy desktop users and Vista victims everywhere! :D

That, of course, is my beloved 1Ghz Dell Inspiron 8000 with a 64Mb Geforce4 440 Go and 512Mb of PC133, running Beryl-plus-Emerald alone, with lxpanel 0.2.4 as a semitransparent taskbar along the left side. No Gnome, no Vista — all on hardware that was obsolete in 2001.

And there’s a not-so-secret message in there too, just to keep everyone entertained.

Cheers, all!
