desktop view



Prologue:

quoting iRonnie , he says:

... "Most people spend a considerable amount of time in customizing or in finding a desktop wallpaper that suits their taste. Sadly, our computers often remains… personal. Why don’t we brag to the world our good-find wallpapers and let them have a peek to our personality via our desktops?

On the other hand, aren’t you curious on how does your favorite bloggers’ desktop look like? Don’t you want to find out how organized, or disorganized :D, they are?

With that, I am inviting you to participate in this tag and give the cyber world a Free View of your desktop."...
unquote.



So, with his intro, i present to you my desktop. You have to bear with the image as it's captured by a digicam and not thru a screen capture.



-silhouette that is…. most of the icons in my desktop. Why? Hhhmmmm, its hard to explain but I prefer them to be in their silhouettes…LOL. (No further explanations).



About the icons, there are a lot of them, lots yeah. You know, my laptop is my best buddy in the monastery…. Hhhmmm, in the vernacular language, I should say, gusto kong lahat sila na kinakailangan ko na nagbibigay ng ibat’t ibang impormasyon sa akin ay dapat nasa desktop ko para anytime na gusto kong mag refer sa kahit na anong impormasyon from the internet ay madali ko nang mahahanap at matatagpuan agad ang mga ito…they’re just a click away , ika nga. i don't own my time in the monastery. i don't have the luxury of time to find sites and programs in my kept files.



First and foremost, you will find in my desktop the icons of Gospel Readings for the day, Meditations and reflections of Bible readings, and Homilies of Cardinals and Bishops. They help me a lot in my daily ‘Lectio Divina’ ( Sacred Scripture Readings inside our cells from 4pm to 5pm everyday- Perpetually Professed monks conduct their Lectio in their private cells while the Temporarily Professed monks (Juniors), the Novices and Postulants conduct their Lectio in common, that is, inside the Reading Room of the monastery)



The icons of sites that bring me to a variety of dictionaries and thesaurus help me greatly in writing my own reflections of the day's Readings. With them on my desktop, I won’t need any printed dictionary anymore for me to be able to get to a word that will answer my inquiries.



Another icon that gives me so much help is the site of our ‘internet cash register’ for Visa and Mastercard credit card validations. With it in my desktop, I don’t need to encode its URL over and over again to be able to enter the amounts paid in credit by the customers of the monastery’s gifsthoppe.



I also have an icon of language translations from english to Korean, Latin, Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Bombay, and Filipino. This helps me get to understand the languages spoken by my monk brothers in the monastery. Without this icon, communications with the brothers in the monastery who speak different languages will be a sure terrifying experience for me.



I have icons of video players in my desktop that help me a lot in playing videos of different regions. I am sure that even if one dvd is formatted in Region I, Region II or even in Region III, still with the use of my GOM player, DivX player, Magix media player, Nero media player, InterVideo WIN video player or VLC player or even my Cyberlink Power Dvd player, I will be able to play all of these dvds formatted in these three regions. With them all in my desktop, I can easily click and or exit them as I try to view one particular video file.



Cd and Dvd burners are also of utmost importance for me in burning video clips and files of related shows and movies as well. So I needed to have their icons ready at hand in my desktop.



Communications play a very important role in making our lives at the monastery stable, settled and sane. Icons of my Yahoo Messanger with Voice and Chikka Text Messenger are of equal value to me as they help the community save its dollars for overseas calls to my family and friends here and abroad. Hence, their icons are a must in my desktop.



I have icons of folders of History, Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, My recent Documents, Disk Defragmenter and Disk Cleanup. With these icons in my desktop, I don’t have to spend time finding them in the midst of my laptop's files. They help unnecessary files and garbage files get cleaned up so easily, and with them ready at hand, I easily could perform the cleanup and thus helps my laptop speed up the browsing or uploading and downloading of internet sites that I am opening up in everyday of my life in the monastery.



Lastly , I have an icon of HJ-split program in my desktop.. With this icon, I am able to avail of its service in joining and splitting large video files that I upload in my YouTube site….

So, these are what you can find and view in my desktop.



The persons I want to have a Free View of their desktops are the following:

Vera , Sasha , brVince , bluepanjeet , chuva
