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.

Just a question...

If we have more than one Mac, can we post more than one screenshot in just ONE post?

Edit..as I read the beginning post, I guess I can't.

Decisions...decisions. Might as well throw the screenshot of my MacBook for this month.

This is pretty much the same (geektool wise) as last month, but just different colours and different wallpaper.

Decided to go "old school" with the desktop wallpaper on my MacBook by using the default Leopard wallpaper--I like the color scheme they employed with this one..

I also started playing around with Geektool and I love it.

Just an image of Valentino Rossi mid-race for me just now, a constant reminder that I need to finish getting my bike licence and to buy my Rossi Rep helmet soon!

I got them here: Extreme Instability (http://www.extremeinstability.com/)

To forewarn you, a few of this persons pictures are fully copyrighted (meaning you have to buy them). He does have a part of the site dedicated to wallpapers, and there are some pictures that are in an area of the website where it's hard to tell if he/she allows you to save them to your harddrive. Enjoy!

And for the recent outbreak as of May 10th, this guy did take some beautiful pictures. http://www.extremeinstability.com/2010-5-10.htm

How did you do the time and weather that is on your desktop

Geektool. Nifty, but it has a small learning curve.


As for me personally, I can never get the weather to look like that (in other words, I'm stuck with plain text).

As much as I dislike Windows, I absolutely love this wallpaper from Windows 7...
Search 'windows 7 characters' in Google Images and it'll pop up if you want it.

If you have a Windows 7 computer you can dig around a little and find this picture, copy it on to a USB device and then transfer it over to a Mac. I did it for my Mac because the way this is...it's kind of cute, kind of interesting.


And as a reminder people, PLEASE downsize your pictures before you post them!!

It's called Coverflow as said by Crimson. Yep, it was Céline Dion I was listening to (listening to her right now on VH1 too LOL), one of my all time favourite artists.
