B******, lol :moon: Yes I do, actually. I only did it recently to fill some time, but then I played more and more. Damn that game. I'll forgive you your comment because of your link to an hour of excellent Pirate Metal last night, although only just...

My new desktop theme based on the wallpaper "Brenta (Trento-Italy)", found on http://art.gnome.org. I obviously didn't design the wallpaper or icons, but I designed the color scheme. I also included a closeup of my portrait of Scamp on my small monitor.

My desktop at work (just the photo - there are a few icons down the left side on the actual screen):

*edit - dammit, the images are chopped off down the right side. The sun is centered in the actual desktop.

I took that one about half a mile from the old office in Rangeley on my way home one evening. Didn't even get out of the car, just rolled down the passenger window, leaned over and clicked.

This is my desktop here:

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

International Space Station passing in front of The Moon. Not the most impressive eclipse ever, but cool enough for me...

It's a big screen. Larger image (still not full size) can be found here: http://i45.tinypic.com/25iokr8.png

I save way too much stuff to my desktop. This helps me organize it a bit until I decide to properly file things. You're looking at a pretty clean version.

This is a map I designed with Spiderweb Software's Blades of Exile RPG scenario editor, specifically for use as a desktop wallpaper. It is a town in a cave, with some reptiles and a garbage dump to the west.

Wow, so apparently I have not altered my desktop since sept of 2011 (http://www.nerdtopiacast.com/wp-content ... now-01.png) I suppose I need to find a new one.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

I have it set up for a 21" iMac, but I also have the original image if you need it in another size.
