Posted:So what this thread is about is basically taking a picture of your desktop and showing whats on them.

On the mac to do this:-
Hold apple key + shift then press 3
Upload the picture
(probably a good idea to change the picture to gif or jpeg)

I have two styles of desktop that I like to use, so these are them
first one
and the
second one.


I hope you realize how pissed I am.

Posted:The 2 wallpapers I use most often are on this page

I've got a few more, but they're mainly active webpages that have stuff like bubblewrap on so they don't look too impressive as just a picture.

edit - Before you ask, I'm not really that obsessed with monkeys

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:All of my backgrounds are dark (dark colors i.e black, dark purple, dark blue) because my eye are sensitive to the refresh rate. Even if it's at it's highest.

Dark, for once is good (besides when your spinning )

Posted:um.. yeah, except for that angel fire won't let you link to your pictures.
