Inspired by these, I made my own transparent desktop. It’s a fun thing to do on a rainy Seattle saturday.

Update: So Slashdot gets around to talking about this (remember when Slashdot was first? Now they seem to be last). And the overriding criticism is that people “have too much time on their hands”. From the time I first saw this til the time I had mine up was 15 minutes. And I did it twice (the first one sucked). And I had to run downstairs to find the camera and scrounge around for our tripod (which isn’t needed). And I had to charge the battery.
