It launches Macromedia Fireworks ( image editing software)

It launches Internet Explorer. 
Which connects to multiple memory databanks

I've got the icons to the programs beside the writing. But if you have
never seen the program then that doesn't help much.

I used Macromedia Fireworks to do it all. I can't get a handle on Adobe

The Clock is someone else's work. (an object in desktopx)
The menu, buttons and hash background I did from scratch.

I also use ICQPLUS with a klingon theme.

The background is a program called xearth.  
Xearth renders a shaded image of the earth on your desktop and this
version supports the display of earthquake information on the image.
