Did you take that photo of the anemone and clown-fish? It is beautiful, something I long to see again.
Hi

Yes I shot the photo. The Aquarium is located at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. I plan to go back this weekend to see if I can get more shots..

They are hard to capture since they swim so fast..

@ oscar799 >> the wallpaper made me think of the Cirque du Soleil, an amazing performance I have seen thrice.

@ colyn >> did you use a polarizing lens to avoid glare off of the glass? I guess it was all ambient lighting, that or you had an off camera flash.

No I didn't use a polarizer. I positioned myself at a slight angle to avoid reflections from south lighting during the late morning. Any other time of the day I would have had to use a polarizer. especially late afternoon..

I may try polarizing this weekend to see if I get a different look though..

Interesting conky position, I never see many screenshots with the conky down the middle. Suits the wallpaper, do you know her ?

a cousin, but she seems a bit 2 young for you ;) :P

you mean:

Code: Select all

<?
require_once "postcount";
$trash="/dev/null";
if (isset($thread))
   {
   foreach($newpost as $post)
      {
      echo $trash;
      ++$postcount;
      }
   echo 'javascript:location.reload()';
   }
?>
?

it means:
take your postcount
($trash is some trashpost, in WWW-Linux-Speak /dev/null)

if there's a thread
do a new post with nonsense for ech post which is postet and increase your postcount
after that reload.


it's just a PHP-coded caricature of some peoples post-habits ^^

in germany it's all a bit easier with learning the job you want, so it isn't hard if you got some basic knowledge
actually i've learned "network technican" (finished since august) but at my firm/chair i'm more a dogsboy, i do the most things from the chairs website to Technical support and software/user support... but i'm also not a big coder, just as you ;) only a bit scripting and some php (and php is really simple if you understand the structure how to write a "programm" (morely a script)

mhm this forum got also a nice PN feature, but i prefer the way described in my signature :lol:
