The Wallpaper Thread

Postby Ardent Fox » Tue Jun 01, 2010 8:13 pm

I was in need of wallpapers a few days ago and swung over to 4chan, my usual supplier. It got me thinking, what does everyone else have as their computer desktop? To start the festivities, I shall post mine.

I have a whole folder in my dropbox called "Wallpapers." Any picture in there is one that I would conceivably want as my background whilst computering. This folder is propagated to my three main computers, all of which switch out the background for something in that folder randomly.

Of the two computers that I have access to, one is currently a fractal, and the other is currently Balrog from Cave Story. Who knows what they'll be in half an hour?

I have some lovely fantasy/seascape images I like to switch between, along with some Ecco wallpapers, but my current one is of Ian Wright from Globe Trekker. The guy cracks me up from getting his tail handed to him at a Venezuelan girls karate school, jamming on Mozart's piano, being a best man at an underwater wedding and dropping the ring, or watching some of his own episodes and laughing at 'the loser'. :mrgreen:

I have loved that pic for years. If only Fumi Ishikawa actually worked on Castlevania - why couldn't she have worked on Dawn of Sorrow and Portrait of Ruin?

Check out this elegance, lol

Awesome, Kiz! Are the buttons fully functional? What's the difference between "Clear" and "Empty" cargobay?

Nah, the buttons don't actually work. There's a theme that does retool the entire layout to look like the LCARS interface (where those buttons do work), but complicated themes tend to be a waste of system resources. KF
