I found a cool little article that gives you some sweet tweaks for Windows XP, specifically desktop related stuff. for instance I employed a nifty trick that allows me to save my desktop icons and their positions so whenever they get moved (which is like every time I open Photoshop, for some weird reason) I can reset them easily. another cool trick lets you customize the spacing of your icons. and the coolest is one that lets you download themes for XP to customize the interface! pretty sweet! I'll keep you posted on which theme I end up with.
so until then...burn like the sun, or something like that
