Hi  :)

Da_elf ....
Yes. Unfortunately some wallpapers do take up rather a lot of room. I regularly "prune" mine so that I just have a few favourites stored at any one time.

Music Head ....
Hehehe  !!  Or maybe it's really modern art and he's just SO much more sophisticated than you thought  ??

Cheers.

Madd   :rollin

That's not what he meant. What he meant was that they use too many system resources, like CPU speed and RAM.

In general, this should not be an issue, though, as long as you stick to BMPs and use tiling or centering.

exactly pigeot. usually i optimise windows down to bare bones with no screen saver, no energy saver, no wallpaper, no clock, no desktop icons, basically just whats needed to keep it running. 3d takes up tonnes of computer resources and ive only got 3GB ram in the main system and 2 in the other

Hey Da_elf, your signature "there are two ways to tackle any problem, unfortunately only the 3rd way works", reminds me of another similar saying: "There are 3 types of people in life - those who can count, and those who cannot"   ;)

Sometimes people at work have 50 or more icons/shortcuts on their desktop, a huge .bmp wallpaper, active desktop, live weather updates running in the background.... and they say, "My computer is running slowly!"    8o

Of course, if you do not understand that these things hog the resources, then you think nothing of it.  Funny thing is, when you have more than 50 shortcuts, how the heck can you find anything?

actually the cool saying thats close to the one you said is "there are 10 types of people in the world. those who know binary and those who dont"

:)   Never heard that one before, but I like it.  Very clever.

Of course, no one will get it unless they actually do understand binary.   ;)

yes, just as decimal is when you start with one and then ten and then one hundred, and are able to make any number just by adding these.
You're talking about what the digits stand for, basically...

In decimal, they stand for ascending powers of ten, the rightmost being ten to the power of 0 (10^0=1), the second being ten to the power of one (10^1=10), the third being ten to the power of two (10^2=100) and so on.

In binary, they stand for ascending powers of two, the rightmost being two to the power of 0 (2^0=1) and so on, much as in decimal. Thus the second digit stands for 4, the third digit for 8, and so on.

Thus:
Decimal           Binary
1                     1
2                     10 (a two and no ones)
3                     11 (a two and a one)
4                     100 (a four and no twos or ones)
5                     101 (a four and a one)
and so on.

Hence "There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who know binary, and those who don't" translates to there being 2 kinds of people. Actually, I think you'd still pronounce it 2, regardless of what base you're in, so it mightn't translate very well when spoken, unless you were to say "There are one zero kinds...", which would let people know something was strange right away...

If you ever want anything else explained in an excessively longwinded fashion, you know who to call.

What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow?

Roughly 11 meters/second, or 24 miles/hour. Explanation in link.

Hey if you think that binary is confusing, just wait until you first come across hexadecimal!  

Quote:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In mathematics and computer science, hexadecimal or simply hex is a numeral system with a radix or base of 16 usually written using the symbols 0–9 and A–F or a–f.

For example, the decimal numeral 79 whose binary representation is 01001111 can be written as 4F in hexadecimal (4 = 0100, F = 1111).


:p

If you're interested in computer/tech stuff you should take some courses in it later on.  I really enjoyed those courses.

That's always good to hear!  There are too many people these days that don't want to do anything at all.  Well, at least that's the case here.  I think part of it is that they force everyone to take the same courses up until you're around 16.  Many people lose interest in school by that time because they can't take what they want to take until later on.
