Picture of

Well, I said i was going to try and keep this topic 'idea' going for a few months, see what response I get!

Last months was a success, lets hope you all change your set-ups enough to keep this a monthly thing.

Today I have my work computer, which i just outfitted with a new background. I will add one of my home system when I get home.

The second two images are from my home set up. The Apple one i made myself, the portrait one was a desktop that i refitted to go the other way round, while adding some machinae supremacy lyrics.

The Wallpaper was from heylove, the artist has some good design work, and some even better photography, so check it out.

Running the on the desktop is geek tool, which is in Swiss Thin (i always use swiss at work, as many of the other fonts are turned off and on throughout the day).

In the title bar we have Little Snitch, and iStat Menus.

Be sure to post your desktop below. If your creative, and your still running the same wallpaper as last month, then you need to change it, right now. Then post it.

Obviously you have forgotten that i am english. Also, you should be more than aware than others, that i do not for one moment care wether i spelt it right. Let alone wether you have to point it out. Get all 20 posted now boyo! Share the wealth, but please make sure they are 1680 x 1050 or more...

Did you not look at the screenshot in my March comment? My monitor is 1440x900, so all of my backgrounds are PNGs resized and cropped to 1440x900.

Your brother has no claim over what you have on your desktop :-) If you share the computer, get him his own signon and he can have his own desktop ;-)
