Ms. Geek To You

I have to add this. I hated the default desktop icons for some of my programs. Loathed them, in fact. So I changed them to some imminently cool ones.

It's not hard to do - right-click on the icon and choose 'properties'. While it varies somewhat, there are buttons that allow you to choose another icon to represent that particular shortcut. And I found some hum-dingers.

For dangerspouse, I even found an accordian icon (left). For me, I prefer the 'pretty' ones, but there are some really funny ones, too - along with a few that are pretty much warped. Just download and use the 'browse' button on the desktop icon properties window to find the one you want to use. Click on the accordion icon to find the archive where I found most of mine.

I suppose I really should get back to work, but had to point that out.

I am such a geek.

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
