Re: Artwork suggestions for Lithium

^ Couple of points...

The highlight text is hard to read. Needs to be black?

The greenish-grey bg colour seems to clash a bit with the blue-grey elsewhere. Desaturate it a bit, or more of an ash-grey?

Apart from that it's lookin' really good smile

I use a script to pull down whatever's most popular in DeviantArt's "landscapes" section. It used to change every boot, but that got too distracting so now it's every third. The core (needs xmlstarlet) is

PICNAME='deviantpic.jpg' 
url='http://backend.deviantart.com/rss.xml?q=boost%3Apopular+in%3Aphotography%2Fnature%2Flandscapes+max_age%3A24h&type=deviation'
wget -q -O- "$url" | xmlstarlet sel -N media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" --template --match '//item[1]/media:content[1]' --value-of '@url' | wget -nv --input-file=- -O "/tmp/$PICNAME"

Then do whatever it takes to get it on your desktop.

hey thats a neatidea - never thought of automating it


The telephone is an antiquity - you never know who is calling, there is no image, it is an outmoded product which constantly disrupts work (Ralf Hutter (Kraftwerk)) ps: my wife knows how much I dislike being disrupted at Work - Ralf Hutter hit the nail on the head there
