About this site's lack of design: Yes, it's supposed to look this way — I'm helping create a new sandbox theme for WordPress (see it on GitHub).

Dan Rubin's SuperfluousBanter

Design, random musings, and the Web. Since 1977


Hive Got Desktops

Dan Benjamin (of HiveWare Email Address Enkoder fame) has released some new desktop images (not too bad, especially if you like blue) and to celebrate, I’ve decided to release a set of my own.

Presenting: Superfluous Desktops

Download, use, review, enjoy.

UPDATE: It has been brought to my attention that I have completely and entirely (etc. etc.) missed the one year anniversary of SuperfluousBanter! July 19th, 2002 marked my first post to this site, and it has evolved beautifully since then. My apologies for missing the big 1.0 — you may all now consider the new desktops as a belated birthday present…

UPDATE #2: Yes, I was indeed inspired by Mr. Benjamin’s desktop offerings when I decided to create my own. No, even though the layout of the desktop page looks almost identical to that of Mr. Benjamin’s, I swear I didn’t copy it: I still use IE 5.1 on OS 9 as my primary browser, so when I viewed his page it looked like this. I can only offer a public apology to Mr. Benjamin for the way it turned out :-)

    Yeah, they are really nice. I downloaded the Peach fuzz with the world skeleton. Nice branding!

    July was a big month. I seem to recall coming across quite a few anniversaries this month, including my own (uncelebrated).
