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.

I'll post my Vatican desktop next month. :)

I think the hard drive icons and a few other icons were from various files at Interfacelift.

I changed my desktop image the other day and had to laugh at the unintended results.

Link emerges from his uncle's house and is confused about the four individuals floating over the river.

I made the Brawl Icon myself with some sprites ripped from the game.

The background image is by Orioto (http://orioto.deviantart.com/) from DeviantArt and can be found here (http://Orioto.deviantart.com/art/Through-the-night-96477716).
He has a whole series of classic game re-imaginings. They're very nice.

Been a while since I changed my desktop. Made this from a few shots from a recent trip to Battersea, Ontario, Canada. This was the view from our lunch area.

What do you guys think?


Also, I've noticed a few of you have a "now playing" indicator with album art on the bottom corner of the screen. Where may I find such an app?
