no, click it and save it as long as the gif's/jpeg's/line art are not locked, way easier on a mac.

Has a feature on caffeine.
The cover has heart art.
The sludge from decafeinated beans is scary.

In saving their free desktop art, I noticed that it takes quite a few
more steps to save it and make it the desktop background for Mac
users!  That surprises me - I had always thought the Macs were easier
to use than the PC's.

On a Mac all you have to do is save it to the hard drive, ideally in 
the pictures folder, then tell the Desktop/Screen Saver utility in the 
system tool you want it to be the screen saver.   The hard part is 
remembering where you put it when you saved it if you did not put it in 
the pictures folder.   Doesn't seem difficult to me.

yea I agree with Jim... and the way I do it is...I just save it to my 
desktop and then drag it into iPhoto in OS X  where I have a folder 
there... it is a 1 click selection to change desktops at that point....

What is the link to the National Geographic article?

8) From: Justin Marquez
It isn't that it is "difficult", just that the PC instructions had 4
steps listed whereas the Mac instructions had 7 steps listed for one
Mac op sys and 8 for the other one. I know the ones listed for the PC
were correct, having done that many times before. I was just surprised
that the Mac took more steps, that's all. They were probably more
intuitive, right? heheheh

Two points:
1. There are often many ways to accomplish the same task that are 
equally effective so 7 & 8 step methods do not preclude the possibility 
of an equally effective solution of fewer steps.
2. The number of 'steps' given in a set of instructions may be 
arbitrary and depends, to some degree at least, on how you break up the 
steps and the level of detail provided.

You take the "coffee quiz".  If you get 70% or better right, then you
get to download a caffeine related image (in my case it was workers
harvesting tea - a neat photo, but I was really hoping for a closeup
of coffee blooms or cherries).
The download and usage instructions were presented in 3 columns - for
PC and two versions of Mac. The PC steps numbered 4 and the Macs'
numbered 7 and 8. I didn't really try to compare the steps (useless,
as I don't have access to a Mac) but did note that the PC steps were

2 steps.... in Mac
1. select image size from site to download
2. drag and drop to desktop
if you want to set it to desktop there are about 3 simple steps.... in 
XP i think you can right click on image and set to desktop... some 
thing like that... I'd have to do it in Virtual PC /XP to check that 
out but I am too lazy today..lol

I got 63%, no picture for me.  I thought it was more of a caffeine quiz 
than a coffee quiz.  I don't  even know what Red Bull is.   Thought it 
might be a Malt Liquor.

Here's the link.  I lucked out and scored high enough on the quiz to get it. 
Follow the instructions if you want to use it as wallpaper.http://magma.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0501/feature1/quiz/trivia_prize.htmlVB

You can take the quiz twice and score much higher the second time. :-)
That's what I did.  I got a nice picture of tea being harvested
somewhere in (I think) China.

Red Bull's one of those "supplement" drinks. I used to consume them
prior to long morning runs where I needed some caffine, but a cup of
coffee was too much for my stomach. Others mix them with vodka and the
combination of alcohol and caffine keeps them partying all night long.
In fact, it's not unusual to see a cooler of Red Bull on the counter
of some bars...

Sorry about the double.
The email client on my phone defaults to my address that isn't signed up 
to the list.
I realized when I sent it so I resent from my signed up addy.
