Click to imbiggen.

Icons on the bottom row may be changing soonish as I just got my copies of Design and Production Suites CS 5. :happy:. Icons are arranged in order of frequency of use though.

Only showing primary monitor as the secondary monitor is ..well, .. just a black background.

my laptop


What wallpapers are you two using?



My OS X laptop. Running Snow Leopard. Stats at the bottom of the screen are shown via GeekTool. Dock has been modded to take up less space.



Programs in the screenshot:

Cornerstone Subversion client. I find it useful for browsing svn logs and for diffing changes between commits. I wish that there were tools of similar quality for Git and Mercurial.

VMWare Fusion. My web development virtual machine runs Linux. Windows XP is for testing in IE.

I keep my todo notes in TaskPaper. I also have TaskPaper on my iPhone and iPad and my notes get synced to all my devices over the air.



I interact with the terminal a lot. So I've installed Visor and have bound Cmd + Esc to it. Press Cmd + Esc, and the terminal window slides down. Makes for quick access from any virtual desktop.

Each terminal tab is a session on a different box. I run tmux inside each tab. This gives me a tiling window manager for each session.

Second Monitor / Virtual Desktop


If I'm using dual monitors, the second monitor usually runs MacVim in fullscreen mode. If I'm only connected to one monitor, I run MacVim in a different virtual desktop.

What's that Terminal/vim theme?

What's that Terminal/vim theme?

Terminal theme is IR Black. I've modified it a bit.

Vim colour scheme is one of my own. I call it vy2:
