Off topic!! What does your desktop look like ?

I know this has been done often, but I was just wondering what your desktop looks like here is mine.

I couldn't help but notice that it looks like you're coding up a DAG for a SPF implimentation. I was wondering what application the code is for. It wouldn't happen to be for some kind of routing protocol would it?

It's a homework assignment "Dykstra's Shortest path algorithm".

Yes... the quintessential SPF algorithm. It's used in both OSPF and IS-IS. BTW, it's spelled "Dijkstra".

Here are a few screenshots from years past although my current desktops haven't changed much at all.

My main desktop: Solaris/SPARC running on a dual headed Sun Ultra2/2300. Window manager is fvwm2 with a lot of customisation. The desktop environment is Gnome2. And I'm also running a bunch of WindowMaker dockapps.

display :0.0


display :0.1



My laptop running FreeBSD. Windowing environment is set up similarly to my desktop.

Here's a relatively recent addition to my stash of machines. This screenshot is off my "guest" laptop. This is a laptop I loan out to people who are visiting me and didn't happen to bring their own laptop but want to hop on to check email and browse and such. It's an old IBM ThinkPad X21 (ultraportable). It sports a 600MHz Pentium-III, 192MB of RAM, 10GB HD and a 12" display. I stuck a cheapo 802.11b wireless card I had laying around in it. It's loaded with a stock install of FreeSBIE-1.1 LiveCD. This is a FreeBSD-5.3R distro with a bunch of goodies all wrapped into an ISO that can be run on a diskless machine. It's similar to the idea behind the Knoppix Linux distro. However, you can also choose to install it to the HD if you want. It's a quick way to build a fully working out-of-the-box FreeBSD laptop. The install took me less than half an hour. I just popped the CD in, hit the enter key a few times and off it went. The window manager is XFCE4 (FreeSBIE also comes with Fluxbox) and I'm running both Gnome and KDE servers underneath to support any apps that need those. Running FreeBSD makes this pretty snappy for such a relatively old and limited machine. Windows 2000 was a dog on this thing. And XP was simply painful.



This second set of screenshots are from my Cingular 2125 phone running Windows Mobile 5. I've highly customised it which is fairly easy to do since all the screens and such are configured via XML.

Good job, you are a bike riding geek!! My goal was to find if there were any NON windows geeks here, I guess I am not alone.The problem in our field is that most programmers spend more time in front of the monitor, and less time in front of the stem.

Chronological by depth; I'm sure you can picture the magnitude of that. And yes that describes both my computer screen and desk.

Haha I only do that so it's easier to find who I'm looking for.
Plus I only talk to about 10 of those 153.
I'm just to lazy to go through and delete.

I use Fluxbox. No icons. No background image. Nothing. It's just blue. I'll get a shot of it from home later, but it's an incredibly uninteresting patch of blue. I love it

(And I'm happy to see Mac and Linux here -- and even FreeBSD!! I'll take a "slice" of that any day!)
