You probably would jump at the chance to show it off at a show. Too bad “Open Source Desktop Shows” aren’t a reality. Maybe they are, I just havn’t heard of any.

If they don’t exist, We should start a custom desktop show. We could have Prizes, Champions, Ribbons. :) That would be a cool place to visit and you would definitely meet some interesting people. This would be something worth leaving the comfort of my computer room for.. Just a thought..

getting creative with your facebook profile and cover images

These are two examples of how you can customize your facebook page. The process is pretty straight forward with minimal photo editing skills. This is not a primer so you won’t find instructions here. Do a YouTube search for “Facebook cover and profile photo customize” You’ll find some great tutorials.

Enjoy!
