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.

You should have left the tri-color band on the steering wheel in color (assuming it has one). Otherwise, nice, clean e28. I have had a 535i, 533i and an M5. e28 may be the best 5 Series ever made, IMHO.

yeah i wish i could say that this was my interroir. i would have left the tricolor band but again its not my background i just found it. Yeah i have 2 535i and i would completly agree that they are the best 5 series made.

I don't know why but I actually come back to this wallpaper quite regularly.

Its simple and colorful - well after I tweaked it with curves, the original is quite flat...

Sure is mate :)

Been playing around with GeekTool and PS

Used PS to set up the wallpaper and then GeekTool to run all the active stuff in it.
Calendar in the monitor, current track playing, time in the vinyl and weather caused me some problems though lol

Have just added a RSS for Mac-Forums and CPU usage. Better than having usage in task bar.

Got some ideas for next month so gonna work on that and do some major tweaking.

Fun little app

Thanks, most of my weather setup was, all except for the icon I used a different code in the shell geeklet. You can get an image in yweather.pl though. There is a lot of information that yweather.pl can show. If your interested I can post the code I used for the image.

Here it is.

curl --silent "http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast/USMN0503.html" | grep "forecast-icon" | sed "s/.*background\:url(\'\(.*\)\')\;\ _background.*/\1/" | xargs curl --silent -o /weather.png
Where you see USMN0503 you use your local code from http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast.

And finally to get the image, use the image geeklet.

file://localhost/weather.png
That should work. Good luck.

Doesn't get much better than King of the Hill, one of my favorite shows. Can't believe The Cleveland show replaced it. You are correct; I used geektool to make the active desktop.
