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.

Re: my taskbar @ the office
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.
