El chupacabra tomó mis pantalones

el Jesús grande de la mantequilla

Yay! I fixed something!
There's a little thing in OS X that had been driving me absolutely batty for weeks: Whenever I would go to change my desktop image, the preferences pane would blank out and not display any of the images to choose from. So I would have to do this crazy dance with it of checking the "rotate images" box, and then close it, and then re-open, and uncheck, and then close and reopen and wait for the thumbnails to rebuild. Insanity.

Today I did some Googling, and it sounded like people were having similar issues when they had installed Aperture. Now, I installed a demo of it a while back, then removed it. So I looked up how to uninstall cleanly, and I learned of a folder in the ~/Library called "Caches" and lo and behold, in the "Desktop" folder in there was a cache of the folders that it was pulling the images from. So I deleted the corresponding cache file, and voila! The thumbnails load cleanly and with no fuss!

Yay me!
