Desk memeThursday, January 4, 2007 at 7:41 | Posted in Blogosphere, entertainment, meme | 12 Comments
As I wrote on Tuesday, I have had severe problems with getting my Logitech Quickcam Connect run under Linux. The problem is now partly solved. Still images can be taken, although the quality is not much to mention. Audio settings still need to be fixed, above all Audacity and Skype do not seem to recognize the inbuilt michrophone.
These device problems have delayed my response to this desk meme which Thomas threw on my door step all the way from Heinsberg, Germany. The meme is about posting a picture of one’s desk. Unlike Thomas and some others, I did not clean up my desk before shooting the picture.
The most obscene object on my desk is not shown in the picture. The ashtray is on the left covered by the monitor. I usually empty it once a day.
The meme should be passed to three persons. I would very much like to see Vesa‘s desk which is probably the opposite of mine, i.e. highly organized. I have seen lots of desktop captures by Kai but never his desk, so the Stöckhen will manage that. Now that he has finished with relocating his blog, he might find the time for a picture of his desk. Last but not least, I pass the meme to Helena who has a choice between two desks to display. Or why not post a photo of both?
