Of course the truth is that we know very little about what Stonehenge is all about. And that's really what the place means to most of us. It's a mystery. An ancient, primordial mystery that brings out the Romantic in even the least imaginative among us. We stand in awe of this colossal wreck, and even if it's a bright Sunday afternoon in July, as it was when I took the tour bus out on the Salisbury Plain, it still has the power to move us. And if I haven't quite arrived at primordial monumentality in this color scheme, I hope I have a least created an interface that is easy on the eyes, and that, perhaps a little, brings to mind the spirit of the distant, mysterious past.
The Stonehenge package includes the color scheme, a folder of desktop patterns and, unless you choose to use the "demystified" version, a complete set of custom icons. After installing Kaleidoscope in your Control Panels folder, simply drop Stonehenge in the Kaleidoscope Color Schemes folder which goes in your Extensions folder. Then open the Kaleidoscope control panel and select Stonehenge. To install the desktop patterns, open your Desktop Patterns control panel and drop the patterns on the open Desktop Patterns window and select the one you want. The new icons will magically appear when you restart your Mac.
One final word about the icons: You'll find that the version of Stonehenge with icons has, apparently, no empty trash can. This is as it was designed, since, as far as I know, Bronze Age people had no trash receptacles. So if there's nothing to throw out, all you have is an empty space; throw something away, and you've got... a pile of trash!
