When I turned the computer off last night, the background picture was a shoreline in Maine. When I turned it on this morning, it was a space thing.

So how did it change by itself?

It's a MAC mini, on a cable.


oops-just figured it out.

Thinking it was a Firefox thing. When I opened a second window there was an ad/box with the same design with a Firefox blurb about a search engine.

It's only happened once (so far).
