I just realized I don't know how to post a picture on this site. It won't let me copy and paste, so here is the link. You really should just go the main website, most of the backgrounds are awesome; I have about 35 on my computer.

You "print screen" your desktop by pressing the "print screen" button on the keyboard if using PC, but using Mac, you "CMD+Shift+3" on your keyboard. That should make an image file in your desktop or my documents in pc. Then upload the print screen pic, usually jpg, to your isp server.

Thanks, it is courtesy of one of Guille's sites: www.g-coria.tk, nice talent for making wallpapers from the looks of mine and the other walls on the site. I hope they make one for the French Open just like they made this Australian Open one.

Why do I keep saying scez? scez scez scez! im too lazy to post my desktop.. plus, it's dirtied up right now, I'd have to organize it before I take the screen shot.

dAgEnIuS,

If you want wallpapers of pros or gear, you can visit their designated sites and there will usually be a section for downloads such as wallpaper, there are different kinds that you can choose from that may fit your liking. Or you can make your own.

Nice Peter. What distro are you using? Looks look Fedora or Redhat.

Actually none of them. Not even Linux :-)

It's a standard GNOME desktop on Sun Solaris 9 on SPARC hardware. The desktop is spread out over three 1280x1024 TFT monitors controlled by three Sunray1 thin clients with the X server running in Xinerama mode.

It's quite convenient to have a huge desktop :-)

Nice Gary!! Wow a P2 400!!! I didn't know those are still around :) Is that winme or win2k you are running?

BTW...you know what Windows ME stand for?

Thanks,

I run Win2K. This particular machine can also dual boot to Win98. I've never run WinME or XP.

It is old and slow by today's standards. It has a fast 60 gig Ultra DMA, 7200 RPM hard drive and 272 megs of memory. It does fine for most of the stuff I do when out of the office, but it has some trouble doing more than one thing at a time when I'm video conferencing with my wife.

I've been thinking about turning it into a media player for my wife's workout room, and use it to stream or play music files. I'll probably do that sometime later this year.

I know what WinMe the operating system is, if you meant something else then I don't know?

Nice as well POGO. I gues Linux is getting more popular. I've also toyed with the idea of someday putting Linux on one of my less used computers, and give it a go. Several years ago, I went through a period of running OS/2.

I didn't do this myself because my desktop doesn't have anything extravagant or something worth showing off, just the normal desktop except for fantom's amazing sketch!
