Has anyone else noticed a (sort of) hidden background image behind the pane as it does the animated flip when pressing the info button? It looks like it is trees covered in snow.

What's up with that?

I don't have the title you are displaying, so I can't tell if it happens on mine.  I tried the info button with with other resources and didn't see an image. Maybe you've found the secret passage back to Narnia!

For me it happens on multiple titles but not every time and not every time in the same title. Weird, huh?

Do you use your computer in the wardrobe very often?

Mike, you are spot on! FYI It's Lantern Waste from C.S. Lewis' The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. Of course, the Narnia Chronicles of which this was the first written are very much Christian parables/allegories. The old London gas lamp-post got into the wood when Narnia was founded in The Magician's Nephew.

It happens for me like it does for you – intermittently. But it's too fast to see detail.  How did you get that screen shot?

I think he was able to print screen while the resource was flipping back or to the info via the "i" button in the top right corner.

 

Does anyone know if this picture has special meaning to one of the developers or owners at LOGOS?

I assumed in a time of slower processors it was much more visible (ie the dealing of cards in Spider Solitaire for Windows would get faster as computers became faster)

Glad that some "light" could be shed on this!

Add me to the Narnia club. I saw it for the first time today. Aren't Easter Eggs fun!

One more reason to switch to Mac! Yes

That makes perfect sense, because only folks in the magical world of Apple can glimpse the magical world of Narnia. Cool

This ability exists because in the Magician's Nephew an apple planted by Digory Kirke protected Narnia for a long time from the Witch Queen Jadis of Charn (who eventually returned as the White Witch in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe). And the wardrobe in LWW was made from an apple tree in our world which was grown from an apple brought back from that special Narnian apple tree. Geeked

Rumor has it that she's Steve Ballmer's grandmother, too.

Excuse me, but Lewis has been quoted saying, "We are not content to be Leibnitzian monads. We demand Windows. Literature as Logos is a series of Windows".

Todd,

You have just demonstrated what I have often said to my flock:

A text out of context is a pretext … for anything you want. 

Cool

Every blessing

Alan

Sure you did. Wink

… but you didn't quote the whole sentence,

… and there were a couple of "scribal emendations" with lowercase w's being capitalised.

But at least you provided a link to the source, so I suppose that's something. Huh?

Is there a reason this pops up? I was wondering about it myself. It would be great to have the writings of Lewis, and not just a drawing based on one of his books... Wink

Programming "Easter Eggs" predates Apple (note: /usr/share/calender in Mac OS X 10.6.7 has many files, including calendar.christian and calendar.judaic).  System 7.1 includes Original Mac about finder with scrolling line of credits.  Mac OS X has many hidden surprises.  Microsoft heritage includes hidden Easter Eggs.

For Logos 4, wiki page Mac and PC User Interface Differences => Easter Egg section links to larger screen shot.
