Fetch wallpapers from Manifold Garden

Because pretty

http://manifoldgarden.tumblr.com/

Setup for OSX

Make a folder like ~/Pictures/manifoldgarden and put check.sh in it. Run it to fetch some images with:

bash check.sh

Then go to System Preferences -> Desktop & Screensaver, add the folder to use as your wallpaper and set it to change every now and then.

To make it update automatically with new ones

open Terminal and run:

crontab -e

you'll want to add this line:

0 * * * * cd $HOME/Pictures/manifoldgarden && bash check.sh

If you don't know how to use the editor (vi) you can do this by pressing i, pasting in the line, pressing ESC and typing :wq
