With all the rain we've been getting here in the Tampa, Florida area this past two weeks, the grass in the yard is really starting to grow. I was outside working on one of my trucks today and realized I was going to have to crank up the lawn mower some time this week. Here's this week's desktop with that in mind...slackshot41_thumb.png*click for bigger pic

I like mine better than the default. Sunrise photo I took at Ninh Phuoc beach, Vietnam a few years ago.

Thanks Eric. I did have personas installed but none of them went well with the blood red border I use. They're too cutesy for me. :thumbsup:

Yeeeesh! No wonder your desktop and color schemes scare away the kids. :P

I like that! It would be perfect in a blood red instead of blue. :lol:

Here's a real pretty one, I think...slackshot44_thumb.png*click for bigger picNotice the Slackware logo on the bottom left. That is a custom SuperKaramba theme that I made myself. I'm getting pretty good at this stuff, huh? :lol:

Thanks, Bruno. You know, just ask if you want a copy of the wallpapers you see here. I even have the base papers (before Slackware branding) in case you want to make Mandriva branded wallpapers with them. HA! Are you kidding? I haven't even begun to use the GIMP to its full potential... definitely still learning. What an outstanding application it is, though! :lol:

Thanks Eric, I grabbed them both. :)I like the ocean one too. It's not my taste for a wallpaper but I'd love to be standing on the shore right about now.I haven't figured out Gimp except for a couple of things I tried and somehow succeeded in doing. I'm not an artistic person by any means (my stick people collapse in shame) and I lack imagination so I tend to shy away from programs like that. Keep up the good work. I always look forward to seeing what your next creation is. :lol:

Eric are you self thought or do you know of any good resources for learning to use GIMP.

@ Sue... artistic? Me? I'm TOTALLY left-brained. There's not an artistic bone in my body. I can't carry a tune with a forklift. Stickmen are about the limits to my drawing abilities, too. However, I do manage to have some fun with paint and graphics apps. A DISCLAIMER HERE: In case y'all are misunderstanding or assuming incorrectly... I usually don't make the base wallpapers that I post here. I just do the modifications (mostly Slackware branding) with GIMP or Kolourpaint. Just didn't want y'all thinking that I had created that beautiful seashore wallpaper or the pyramid one.@ jodef... all self-taught. However, here's a very helpful GIMP site that I found recently: http://gimpology.com/

Just goes to show you how much I love my new flames, The GIMP and Kolourpaint. I hadn't thought of MS Paint or Paint.NET in ages. Thanks for the memories. :)
