It’s that time of the month when I overhaul my desktop. I was in the mood for editing the Mac theme, and wanted to try something new. Been getting quite bored by just Geek-tooling my desktop.
I was inspired by ~rissol from deviantart. This guy is the dude as far as Mac Theme-ing goes! So I looked up theme-ing the Mac. Thought I’d give Magnifique (a Mac theme-ing app) a try. Sadly, there is a pretty scary warning on the Magnifique website which reads.
WARNING: DO NOT use Magnifique on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. It’s almost certain that it will mess up your system beyond repair. We are planning a complete rewrite of Magnifique once Snow Leopard is released. Thanks for everyone’s support
Needless to say, I was quite bleh-ed out after reading that. So thought “Oh well, might as well do something!“. Low and behold.

What amused me the most was placing the VLC icon. I couldn’t help but stop grinning looking at that VLC Slalom Pole Cone Icon nested at the Gingerbreadman’s feet. Bwahaha!
I know, the desktop looks very ordinary, but come-on, not bad for 5 mins of effort. And the cone looks awesome! It really does!! … Oh well
I promise my next one will be awesome
UPDATE: For those of you who are unable to use the ‘Quote of the day’ script, please scroll through the comments where I have linked the original article. The code gets messed up when one copy pastes into/from WP to Geektool. Dunno why. The fonts are also linked in the comments section . Also, feel free to check out the desktops from July-November for other Geektool inspirations here. I personally prefer Newspaper desktop from October
