10.3: Use Terminal background pictures with cutouts
Authored by: stonematt on Dec 15, '03 10:08:19AM
I setup a crontab to rotate images in my terminal. (I'm sure there is a better/simpler way to do this in a script, but I didn't want to think about it...)

10.3: Use Terminal background pictures with cutouts

Hey, that's a pretty cool idea, too. I like it.

After I wrote this tip, I was thinking that Apple ought to have a way to rotate background pictures in the Terminal and the Finder. Your idea handles part of that. (I wish Apple would make Finder window backgrounds scriptable ... !)
