A great little Flickr stream dealing with Transparent Screen, the art of taking a photograph of your computer’s surroundings, without the computer, then replacing the computer, using the photo taken as a wallpaper, creating an almost artificial looking effect. I’d consider if it there wasn’t just a blue wall behind my screen 😉
Bonus link to the originators site where a gallery of pics is located.
One of the crew from AintItCoolNews.com was lucky enough to tour the Pixar facilities and has the details and their pictures around the place. Enjoy it, because the odds are good you won’t ever work in a place quite like it.
Found a few freeware goodies and thought I’d pass them along. Haven’t tried any of them yet, so BEWARE!
SpywareBlaster – Keep spyware from installing in the first place!
EverNote (Beta) – makes it easy to store and quickly access all your notes on an endless, digital roll or paper.
ClamWin – ClamWin is a Free Antivirus for Microsoft Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/2003. It provides a graphical user interface to the Clam AntiVirus engine. (Please note that ClamWin Free Antivirus does not include an on-access real-time scanner, that is, you need to manually scan a file in order to detect a virus.)
PC Inspector File Recovery – A data recovery program that supports the FAT 12/16/32 and NTFS file systems.
I’ve been looking for a nice AV program that doesn’t actively run, but allows me to run it if I think I’m infected. Just happened to find the others along the way.
