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.

GeekTool is AMAZING!! I'm addicted to it LOL. :D

Though, I still cannot figure out the weather picture, and it doesn't work for me anyways..that's alright..I have Dashboard as another graphical weather tool.

I'm really tempted to update my entry here...I just changed the background and how geektool looks..but everything else on my desktop looks a little messy: some icons disappear into the background. Should I change my entry? I think I shall.

Look for it tomorrow morning.

EDIT: I just realized that I can't edit my post! Darn...guess it's next month after all LOL

In terms of capturing your desktop, all you do is Command-Shift-3, and then it'll appear (or should) on your desktop as an image. From there you can use iResize (http://www.iresize.com/) to downsize it to 800x600.

As for the desktop backgrounds, you can find those in a variety of places if you do Google Image searches.

And for the random stuff on the desktop that some of us have (such as the floating calendar and the weather etc.) we use an application called GeekTool (http://projects.tynsoe.org/en/geektool/).

Sorry everyone, my desktop is kinda messy at the moment (I've been using Photoshop a lot, didn't feel like moving them around), but that's it for this month. I actually changed it last month, but I already posted my pic for February.
