Malaysian GP: wet win

Jenson Button has taken his second win in a row, after a crazy race in Malaysia. It started off excitingly enough, with loads of great racing, and ended, well, under a cloud.

The race was abandoned just after half race distance due to a huge downpour – which even knocked the telly picture out for a bit – and at the end of lap 31, Jenson was in the lead, followed by BMW’s Nick Heidfeld, and then Toyota’s Timo Glock.

Glock benefited hugely when it started to rain thanks to canny tyre choices, being on the right rubber at the right time. Heidfeld got on the wet tyres at an opportune moment and stayed with them to get second, despite having a spin.

Jarno Trulli got up to fourth, Rubens Barrichello ended in fifth, followed by Webber, Hamilton and Rosberg.

Due to the race not going the full distance, the drivers have been awarded half points, which is going to look funny on our screens for the rest of the year. But none of that should take away from the great job Button did today, banging in fastest lap times when he needed to, much like Michael Schumacher would do for Ross Brawn back in the day.

Talking of Ferrari, they finish their second consecutive race in a row without any points, which must be making for a very uncomfortable time in the Scuderia. How bizarre is it to have no Ferraris and no McLarens in the top ten of the World Drivers Championship?

Will Jenson manage to win a race without a safety car some time this year? Judging by his current form, you’d think it likely.

Yesterday’s switch to the Royale theme for Windows XP has the negative side effect that the text of the icons on the computer’s desktop were not transparent but showing in black which did not suite the white background image of the desktop.The decision was made to search for the setting that would make desktop icons transparent in Windows. It was there, somewhere that was sure but it is sometimes hard to remember if the setting was a standard Windows feature or available through so called Windows tweaking tools.The option to make desktop icons transparent is a Windows feature which means that every user can set it in his version of Windows without having to install third party software.It can be found in Control Panel This setting reset the theme of the computer which can be easily fixed in the Display Properties.

Obviously, not working ReplyDoug C. says: April 8, 2009 at 1:01 pmI recently found a nice photo on Flickr I wanted to use as the background image on my desktop. I copied the image and then pasted it in Photoshop and resized it to fit my desktop (1680×1050). After doing this I noticed there was still a background color behind my icon text. After spending all morning browsing Google and all the solutions offered (including the one here) I finally figured out what was wrong.When saving the image in Photoshop I had used the “Save for Web” dialogue. Instead I saved the same image again only this time using “File>Save As” and picked “JPG” as the file type. Then I went to my desktop, right-clicked, chose Properties, Desktop tab, browsed to the saved image, and applied.Viola! Transparent icons.
