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.

Well, looks like I'll be spending some time in Ps. I need to save some cash for Illustrator, it would be really helpful for me.

By the way, sweet backgrounds!

BatteryBattery is not included with OS X. Is that an external script?

I just whipped one up in Python quickly. For those of you who code, it may be rough and probably could be done more elegantly (I am by no means a professional), but this should work:
import subprocess

capacity = subprocess.Popen("system_profiler SPPowerDataType | grep 'Full charge capacity (mAh):'", stdout=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True)
batteryCapacity = capacity.stdout.readline()[37:].strip()
remaining = subprocess.Popen("system_profiler SPPowerDataType | grep 'Charge remaining (mAh):'", stdout=subprocess.PIPE, shell=True)
batteryRemaining = remaining.stdout.readline()[33:].strip()

percentage_value = int(round((float(batteryRemaining) / float(batteryCapacity))*100))
print(str(percentage_value) + "% remaining")

Save that code with the .py extension somewhere. Add a shell script to your desktop with Geektool and set the command as "python <location to script>" (without the quotes and, of course, replacing <location to script> with the location of the script).

I tell ya, you start with the computer, and it becomes addicting. By decluttering my desktop, I felt motivated to go through all my real world belongings and get rid of what I don't use anymore. Long story short, my Mac and my life are running much leaner, faster, and more streamlined.

Start one flat surface at a time (desktop) and delve deeper from there (files and folders).

For sure!

It's called Cover Stream and here's the link (http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/ipod_itunes/coverstream.html) to download it from Apple's site.

If you go into the preferences you can customize the size of the artwork and get it to open/close with iTunes etc. Great little app...
