Yesterday, a coworker told me it was December first and asked if I knew what that meant. I made a guess, but it wasn’t what he was looking for.
He exclaimed, with cheerful exuberance, “It’s time to run xsnow!”
So now I’m running xsnow, and loving it. The wind blows occasionally, sending Santa and his reindeer sailing backwards. It’s very entertaining.
There are even versions that work on Windows and on Macs so you can still join in if you’re not running Linux.
Here’s a screenshot of my desktop.
The funny thing is that with your background image, the xsnow snow looks very appropriate. A beach background however, would be right out.
Oh, that’s cool! I like how it piles up on top of windows.
Hey, nice substitute for visual verification, by the way!
But what if I didn’t know what 2 + 3 equals? Aren’t you excluding the unintelligent from commenting? Say… maybe that’s the idea! Uh, huh. I see how it is.
Renee: It’s mainly designed to keep spammers out, but if it restricts people who don’t know what 2 + 3 is, then that’s a bonus in my book.
Haha, nice dan :)
Haven’t commented in a while so when I decided to I read Renee’s comment and was rather puzzled until I saw the comment form
Btw, what distro do you use? All I see is redhat (Fedora perhaps? though I don’t think so)
On that machine I’m running Red Hat 9.
By the way, if it isn’t too much trouble, would you mind sharing how you have gone about doing this? I was going use that captcha but didn’t really decide to do so (I’ve switched to WP aswell)
Teja: Sure. I’m planning to post how I did it as soon as I make sure there aren’t any problems with it. So far so good.
