I never realized how easy making your own icons for the MAC OSX really was. This will show you how to make custom icons for any folder, application, and even removable media like a thumb-drive or SD Card. First Make sure you have these applications:Necessary:Xcode
(also on all MAC OSX install discs)Icns2Rsrc
(to make your icons MORE custom)Illustrator
(to make icons from super scratch)Beastie Boys music
(to jam out while you create custom icons)
Now, get the Beastie Boy album started and lets get started...

I wish I knew everything. Kubuntu looks to be a great operating system, only it will not install Opera, and my printer wont work with it. I wanted to love this thing so much, but it just isn't happening. AIM only supports linux with a 1.5 release, the IM program is up to 6 or so on other OS'. The aesthetics of the Kubuntu are great! some of it's built in progams are the best I have ever seen. But I am still left with a computer burden on my shoulders. I still want a mac-mini. I just want an OS that will take my peripherals, let me download my opera and IM programs, and run smoothly. That seems like too much to ask these days though. They HAVE to come packed with a whole lotta crap you don't need that eat up space (Windows), or work superbly well - only to not be supported by devices or installs.
I tried plan B, and it's not working. It looks like I should go with plan A: Destroy my entire computer. and put Windows back in. This should happen about fourty times before I can save up enough to buy a mac.
I'm tired of computers. I love gadgets to death. they either work or they don't. When they don't you get to exchange it for a working one, but computers... those you have to fight with forever and ever.
