PatrickMay16, I can't give proper credit to the creator of that background as I'd like to. A friend from Australia sent me the picture in an e-mail and it has brought more laughs and tears than anything I ever saw -especially since I lived in Mexico for 15 years.
You can get a copy of it here:

If I ever find out who made that, I'll properly credit their creativity and sense of humor.

Is it that time again?


Well, here is my latest.
Actually I've been using it for quite some time and haven't had the need to really change it.


current-shot.png 1680x1050 2MB


Fluxbox
conky (minimalism version)
Firefox shaded
Rox-filer with alienware icons
mrxvt terminals (some with and some without screen)
irssi for IRC

... don't think there is much else to see on there.

Imagine that the lines on the worldmap represent nuclear missile trajectories.

There's a shirt with such an image and that sentence somewhere on thinkgeek.com or a similar site I think.

And just to advertise a fantastic game related to this: DEFCON
Runs on GNU/Linux (altough I'm having some graphical bugs with it on my PC in the demo version).

@slackmagic:
How do you remove the window decorations??
It looks really cool!
And everyone here seems to have monitoring tools on the background image. Is this done with gdesklets?

Everytime I see the screenshots here, I am amazed. This just looks so much better than any other OS! And that's without compiz effects!
My ubuntu gnome desktop still looks very poor. I'll have to do something about that...

I guess it's kinda like a game...that's not a static desktop image =)

If that was plotting out something other than active connections, I'd agree...but it's a realtime tcp/ip connection tracker built into my desktop. heh. Guess I was "too close" to the joke to get it...Thanks for clarifying!

Now if I can get traceroutes to work with it, it won't look like ICBM paths...haha.

It's a quote from the movie "WarGames", with Matthew Broderick. It's the realization the supercomputer comes to after playing a series of nuclear war scenarios, and witnessing the virtual annihilation of the world in all of them.
