This thread has not been added to in a while so I thought I would add to it. ;)Here is my desktop I call "Sea of Change" just like my PC. It seems I am always changing it.desktop1aw1.png

I have not been there since probably before you were even born. I would love to go back but something about the expenses of multiple relatives in college is keeping me poor. :hysterical: You go visit and tell us all about it. Your picture reminds me a lot of this picture my daughter took while there a year ago.

thanks temmu, looool. i can see you're impressed, loool. this is running on a nvidia fx5200 with 2 samsung syncmaster 20 in monitors. (204t and a newer 204b). by all means you should plug that other monitor in. i think you'll like the wide display.here's a cluttered shot. liquid weather, gkrellm, kde world clock, firefox, konqueror, etherape, and kget. i keep liquidweather,gkrellm and worldclock docked in that position so that firefox snaps to the edges right where i like it. kget is downloading that new linux mint 2.0. that looks like a promising distro.http://img295.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dtop14nov06bm6.jpg Edited by cybormoron

I sooooooooo wish I could participate but I let WallPaper Master FREEware (also available as SHAREware) program to handle the images on my desktop.This great proggie automatically changes the background/wallpaper every two hours (both in WinXP and WinVista). One of my dedicated directories contains 2,195,338,401Bytes of nothing but very high-resolution images. The WallPaper Master is set to size all pictures to 65% of the 20" monitor.I believe in the theory that a spartan desktop is the eye of a cluttered brain and I fully practice what I preach. o:)There are ONLY 5 icons on my desktop and the TaskBar is in auto-hide mode!It had taken me about 6 months of diligent work to amass these images and they are all categorized by topics, as follows:...\ManMade\.. ...\ManMade\FireWorks\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\AnneGeddesBaby\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\AnneGeddesBaby\MoreBabyPix\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\BorisVallejoX3\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\FakeFruits\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\JimBurns\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\LuisRoyo\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\Rodney Matthews (In Search Of Forever)\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\. ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\AssortedBGs\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\DragonsEtc\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\Female\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\Geometric-3Dgen\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\Graffitized\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\HistoryWarriors\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\Number4\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\Number5\ ...\ManMade\RenderedArtsy\SurrealMythical\Yerka-Landscapes-Escheresque...\ManMade\TimePieces\. ...\ManMade\Transportation\. ...\ManMade\Transportation\ConceptCars2006\....\ManMade\Transportation\FerrariF1Pix-VHQ\....\ManMade\Transportation\Motorcycle\....\ManMade\Transportation\PaintedRacing\....\ManMade\Transportation\PorscheMostly\....\ManMade\Transportation\RenaultF1Pix-VHQ\....\ManMade\Transportation\SportsCarsRendered\....\ManMade\Weapons\....\ManMade\Weapons\Aircraft\....\ManMade\Weapons\HQWeapons\....\ManMade\Weapons\ToySoldiers\....\ManMade\WineBottlePeople\....\ManMade\Xray\....\Nature\HoldingTank\....\Nature\AmericanIndians-BW\....\Nature\Animals\....\Nature\Animals\BirdPaintings\....\Nature\Animals\AnimalCloseUps\....\Nature\Animals\LivingDetails\....\Nature\Animals\Spiders\....\Nature\Coffee\....\Nature\HumanEye\....\Nature\HumanMouth\....\Nature\LandScape\. ...\Nature\LandScape\SunClouds\....\Nature\LandScape\VHQ\....\Nature\LandScape\Flora\....\Nature\LandScape\Misc\....\Nature\LandScape\NationalGeo\....\Nature\LandScape\SpaceAstronomy\....\Nature\LandScape\Sunset\....\Nature\LandScape\UnderWater\....\Nature\RealGold\.I hope you get the "picture"!

65% of the screen size? That seems a bit odd...... But then again, each persona has the settings they like... otherwise there would be no point to settings, huh? :)Adam

Hi ross549,I was not attempting to be coy with my reply. I just did not want to be forced to go thru the complication of uploading an image capture of my desktop and tax other members' bandwidth. Furthermore, I am not understanding exactly what your reply means.Thus, I think it'd be best to just show you the capture of my current desktop (next 120 minutes), for clarification: So here it goes.

I was just surprised that you would scale the images down... I have always set the image to 100% of the screen size.Example: My desktop, as of a week ago.What I was saying in my post is that each person has their own preferences. If everyone liked exactly the same thing, what would be the point of customization? I like your desktop, but it is not something I would do. ;)Adam

Are uze guyz really serious about staring at the same desktop (wallpaper) image for a WHOLE month, at a time??? Yawn! :devil:I am making this offering to uze guyz for one last time as a salvation: Just install WallPaper Master FREEware in your system and make that monitor work for you more! I use it in the StartUp and change image every 120minutes. I am yet to see it cause problems with the OS!
