"Don't need [our] kind!"???

I am sorry. I thought MacOS X Hints was for ALL Mac OS X users - those of us with 30+ years computing experience (you're probably not even that old - but I won't hold that against YOU) and those who are newer and still wanting to learn (as opposed to thinking they already know it all).

Maybe YOU should move on to the next forum site and leave this one alone!!!!!!!!

Lord. Some people need to just calm down. Anyone who took that comment as anything but a joke need to go out and buy themselves a sense of humor.

The tip worked for me. Happiness for those of use who like our desktop pictures unblemished. :-)

I registered just to defend sinjin's joke

I got sinjin's joke right away - he's talking about people like me (and himself), who cheerfully indulge our anal-retentive tendencies by exerting fine-grained control over every aspect of a user interface. I, for one, happily waste hours fiddling with keystroke mappings, icon replacements, system font sizes etc. - to no necessary purpose, I admit. But it's my hobby. (therapy?) ;-)

I've been lurking on this great site since switching to OS X (from Linux and FreeBSD) six months ago. I felt I had to register to speak up for sinjin's sense of self-deprecating humor, which I share. So sinjin ended up recruiting a new member at macosxhints!
