My desktop picture changes every 20 minutes or so, randomly extracted from my "various LOTR actors" folder, and I sometimes like to press F11 to clear all the other windows out and just admire it. Mmmm. ROTK Berlin premiere

Karl's going to be in one of the Lonesome Dove movies, Comanche Moon, and dryope found this picture (highres!). west__trips Karl, could be. Very butch.

I found a torrent of Ewan McGregor on Jonathan Ross from Friday, but it's on my site because it's too big (700MB) to post on any of the sharing sites I know. If you want the URL, leave an email address (I'm screening comments).

About torrents, I highly recommend Transmission on the Mac. Nice interface, seems to work great, open source and free (donations accepted, and I have). Also, I have two invites to thebox.bz (UK tv torrent site). I've managed to keep a good ratio but it's non-trivial, and I can't do any torrents through the campus ISP or t'husband gets a Stern Email. So please, only ask if you know you can keep uploading.

Thanks for the torrent rec ... Bittorrent is just dead, both the old version and esp the new.

Love the desktop picture - I didn't know you could make them change. But then I'm a stickler for keeping the same picture!

I don't understand torrents. I decided I was going to learn (it was going to be my 'improving arabia' project for the winter) so I could grab Supernatural as season 3 won't be shown here till next year but... I don't get 'em!

And then I found a site with an upload so I ... gave up and opened a packet of chocolate biscuits instead. Can't say I'm unhappy.

:-)

Making them change is a Mac thing, and option in the Desktop System Preference.

I still have trouble getting torrents, so I just followed the instructions as best I could an let the program do the work!

He does look Hot, and the Lonesome Dove series is much better written than most Westerns, so maybe it will even be good. Also, have you read west__trips? OMG so good.

I haven't read west_trips! I think I came across it a while ago, when I wasn't interested in AUs, so I skipped it. But I'm definitely going to read it now *g*.

I don't really like westerns--my friend and I went to see 3:10 to Yuma and she hated it and I liked it, but mostly because I didn't go to see the movie, I went to see Russell Crowe. I hope the same trick will work with Karl *g*.
