Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.
Feel free to post the source from which you got your wallpapers, themes, icons, UI modifier apps, etc.

That looks like Adium - if you use Adium you can move the contacts window where you want and make it look like what-ever you want (well maybe not whatever...).

Check out Adium (http://www.adiumx.com/) for more info.

Open up terminal and paste this in there.

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES&&killall Dock

To set it back it's

defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO&&killall Dock

That will get you close, assuming you're using Leopard.
