Change desktop picture without Finder restart
Authored by: excarnate on Aug 24, '10 12:36:51PM

Please, something not being useful to YOU doesn't mean it isn't useful to someone else. You are not the center of the universe and the hints don't revolve around you and your needs.

Here is an actual example: Setting the background image to be the current radar picture (the NWS has a simple radar that updates every 5 minutes).

I can think of several more, especially for someone not afraid to explore a man page or two.

Not exactly what I was talking about...you're talking about something a bit beyond what is being discussed in the hint, something that is dynamically updated, whereas the hint is just referring to changing the desktop picture once.

Apples and oranges, really. The Automator hint below is good, though.
