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.

For full desktop screenshots, it is Command+Shift+3

For selection screen shots, Command+Shift+4 (a crosshair will appear, and to take shots of a window or your dock, etc, press the space bar, and a camera icon will appear.

Since my desktop is the one with the motorcycles, I'll assume you were asking me.

That's an 04 Kawasaki Ninja 636 following my 96 YZF600r despite mine being heavier and having significantly less horsepower. (the bummer is once we were out of the nice curvy section there, i got passed like i was standing still. But thru the turns I was the man!)

I got a screenshot..how do I post it here? My desktop is pretty.

Whoops. I found my screenshots on the desktop LOL.

I think I got it:

http://i995.photobucket.com/albums/af78/thewhoissuperb24/Picture2.png

I love this version of Mac OS X..I also like its successors. Sorry if it is too big. My resolution is 1280x1024, and if I downsize it, the desktop screenshot is very very tiny, with nearly half my menubar items gone. Sorry!

The first menubar item is WeatherBug, followed by my S.M.A.R.T drive temp (104), harddrive (Macintosh HD); Virtual Memory percentage; CPU (which gets taxed out in a heartbeat); displays; and then the usual: AirPort, system language or something (the American flag?) and time and date plus volume and spotlight.

All you need to do is resize it :) There's a free program called iResize that will resize any image to a dimension you specify. It also does multiple images at a time... very handy.


Anyway, here's mine!

Wow looks awesome. How long did it take you to do all that?

Even though Helvetica is cool and all, I'm bored of it. It's a cold cold out of wedlock child.. >_<"

That would look awesome on a t-shirt.

HA for the next ....... few years they will all be sitting behind Stoner. 3 races off this season for sickness and he will still come in 3rd in the championship. 2nd if he gets real lucky. What a ride in Malaysia ..... And in the wet ... What was it ???? 17 Seconds

Yeah, I have nothing against Stoner, the kid did an amazing job this season considering. I'm still putting my money on Spies being a force next season, Once he gets a handle on the courses it's going to be game on.
