Every 1/2 hour a new joke :)




Yesterday I had an awesome idea. Very Happy It started like this...

I wanted to have a new cool looking background, that everyone would like. Smile I was thinking of something funny that never bores. Then I thought of putting a Cyanide and Happiness comic on my desktop which was in itself a pretty good idea already. While doing this, I discovered that I could change my desktop background automatically every x minutes or x hours. While investigating this option, I figured out that I rotated the background with images of one directory.

So I made a map containing Cyanide and Happiness comics, all downloaded (right-click and save as) from their website: http://www.explosm.net/comics/2414/ .

I currently have somewhat more than 100 images in that directory and if I see a funny one (not just one of Cyanide and Happiness) I just add it to the map so it is rotated.


I know have my settings set for a new background every half an hour. Smile


I'm sure this can also be done with Linux and Windows. Very Happy

Ghehe, I found it a very good idea too. Smile

It is pleasant when I browse through my 9 spaces (which are essentially nine different desktops) that I notice that there is a new joke that I don't know. Very Happy

I still have to download more of them, I only have 180/2400 comics on my computer. Sad But it takes time that I don't really have right now.
