Your Taskbar

weather: sunny
outside: 2°C
mood: ideaful
Y'know, I just had an interesting thought.

Everybody post a screencap of what your taskbar or dock looks like in the middle of a typical day =)

If you have nowhere to host it, e-mail it to me and I'll stick it up for you. I think it can be very telling as to what you're like.

Here's me at home. I'll have to do my work one on Monday.

Here's me at work. =P I so seriously need virtual desktops... but I'm afraid it might crash my finicky machine. This is two and a half projects' worth of stuff happening. I have scripts running over on remote machines; I have a set of test results I'm looking at (that bunch of browsers on the bottom level); I'm taking a screenshot to show one of the guys something and an e-mail composition ready to send him that screenshot; I'm poking around in two MySQL databases...

Oh, I also have a Mac! I need to do Splat-Shift-4-CapsLock when I get to work tomorrow.

Here's me on my Mac at work. It's 1 cm high at 1024x768 resolution. I can only have my display up to 1024x768 because of the crappy video card. The dock size is pushed as small as it will go and I have Magnification turned off. I obviously don't use the Mac very much. And when I do, all I do is open up Terminal shells unless I need the applications.

my taskbar @ the office
This is my taskbar at work. I have it running vertically down the right side of my screen. Makes it easier to tell which window is which.

And yes, mail happened to be my first application today because my IE crashed early this morning. IE is usually my first series of windows because it is the fastest application to launch. I configure my apps to autolaunch on startup.

btw, thanks for hosting!

No problem =)

I tried moving my taskbar to the right (it feels odd with it on the left, for some reason). I find that the bar wastes less space and my windows can be taller this way as well.

Yeah, it does feel bizarre with the taskbar on the left. It doesn't jive with me at all. The reason why I moved my taskbar to the right was cos I found myself using too many windows and having the bar at the bottom was a pain. I need rapid access to various sites and not being able to tell right away was clumsy especially when I'm concentrating on listening/talking on the phone with a client.

This setup definitely saves space for me at the office. I'm sure you'll convert after trying it out for a while. :)

At home though, I have my taskbar at the bottom. Reason being, I don't have so many windows open at once.
