    Default 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.

    Thanks!

    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.

    Yeah, I like geektool. Am new to the Mac and have just found this. I've enjoyed getting my desktop to the way it looks now. Although, there are so many geeklet you can do, I'm just no good with coding :-(

    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!
