more idea's of fun things to do with mac?
I haven't really messed with my mac beyond personalizing it for my use with things i've found online and going through a few pages of this form. I did the stack icons, played with quicksilver, both pretty neat, cleaned up my dock a lot and got some neat customization...
BUT, what else is like these and really fun to do / play with?
I have a Macbook Pro 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3 Mac OS X v10.5.8 and iPhone 3GS I am just really interested in messing with both a bit and doing neat things, together or separate.
I have a "accidental" warranty which doesn't expire until September so I don't mind messing with the computer a bit.
Just curious if anyone had any neat things they recommended to do for fun.

GeekTools is a fun thing to spice up your desktop. I can post a screen of my desktop when I get home or if I can find my last one I posted.
It basically allows you to put code/script on your desktop. Like I have the weather on my desktop but others use it for much, much more.
