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.

Got the desktop from Deviantart and did some stuff with GeekTool. Can someone help me with a working script that shows the 2 day weather forecast??

College starts soon for me. Figured I'd find a glassy apple picture somewhere. I can't remember where I got it though.

Looking @ your wallpaper I think that would be an excellent candidate for geektool (CPU percentage on the cpu socket, temperature monitor on the fan, etc...)

Guys, part of the idea in sharing our desktops is to link to sources for the pictures, icons and other custom coolness. You're making me crazy showing off beautiful "wallpapers" and then not telling me where I can get them (yes, I know a few sources, but I mean specific links to help cut through the clutter).

Thanks.

A bit long, but this is where I got the picture:

I looked before on IFL, where I’m pretty sure I got it, but I couldn’t find it again.

I pretty much use Serious Wheels Classic, Sports & Muscle Car Pictures (http://seriouswheels.com/) for all my car links, but I actually found that rs5 pic from the HD Wallpapers app on the iphone.
The rest I get from here, one of my favorites iewallpapers.eu

Was emailed the pic by a friend who shares my new passion for MotoGp and Rossi, doing part 1 of 2 parts for my motorcycle licence this week! :)
