Remember the old days when what you had as your desktop wallpaper was SRS BSNS. Yah? Well it still is!

Show me them!

The inspiration for my wallpaper is that I really love the rain and all of that bad weather. So I chose that guy over there from Singing in the Rain.

As an aside, I'm one of the weird people who have their taskbar other than the bottom. Mine's off to the side. :D

I only use XP because my sixth form insists on still using XP for basically everything. This is despite Windows being a full three generations ahead.

XP though, was an awesome operating system.

That'ssssss an nice desssssssktop you've got there.... sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

I've been getting in a proper ARR mood lately so made a background for my two monitors. Unfortunately it's stuck with a crappy lighting filter on top of it because I saved over the .psd version with a merged file by accident >_> so I've taken to thinking of it as "cataclysmic mood lighting."

Also, yeah, I still use Photoshop 7 because my computer is troutty and old. :< I'll install CS2 later...

Loving the organisation in Pitye's Star's desktop!

Thank you! :3 So glad someone appreciates my need to do organize my icons according to my desktop!

Also, you can still call me Pitye if it's more convenient. I just wanted to change my high-school-aged username to something more recent. :cool:

Formalhaut

I'd organise similarly, but I don't really have enough icons. That and I cannot be bothered :p

I'm just so used to Pitye though! I guess I'll call you Papstar. That is your new nickname!

Main (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/58708817/main.jpg) - only two monitors now, I moved one to another computer

Seedbox (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/58708817/seedbox.png) (screenshot taken from remote connection)

Also the laptop and the other two computers, but smurf that noise.

Use it pretty much only as a workspace. :x Like if I'm photoshopping something I'll put some of the source images on the desktop as well as save the PSD/PNG/etc. there until I upload or am done with it. :x

I don't like a cluttered desktop. Having the New Folder is an issue, but I don't really have anywhere to organise it away nicely.

Formalhaut
01-16-2013, 11:10 PM
I think my desktop is a nice balance. Not too many icons, not too little. I do agree with the hate for cluttered desktops: My teachers in sixth form are TERRIBLE for this. I glance over to their computer screen, and it's like half, even more, of the desktop surface just filled... makes my very slight OCD go into a rage.

I never actually used the messenger, I just used to play Pool on Yahoo! a lot with various people from this website every once in a while. The file probably hasn't been opened in 2-3 years but it's just a tradition to have it there. :shobon:

On my Win7 partition I have like 200 wallpapers and they alternate every five minutes. Beyond that I don't mess with my desktop all that much.

Indeed.

Also, to anyone using the Gadgets on Vista and 7, you should disable them. A vulnerability was found in them a while back and Microsoft just stopped supporting it instead of fixing it. :-/

I took screencaps and was too lazy to crop after I resized a bit. Daryl Dixon is my current wallpaper. I included two shots because I'm using transparency so his eyes just follow me everywhere.

Because I am a creeper.

Gonna external link this because I got into trouble last time! However, I was dared to post it, so I will.

To my defense: There is not any detail in the objectable areas, and it is obviously an android of some sort so it is technically not nude, but just a machine in the shape of a female.

Boom. (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1132077/desktop-2013-01-20.jpg)

And yes, one of my monitors is smaller than the other and it's really annoying. Also yes, I use a non-widescreen background on widescreen monitors :(.

Yeah I know it sounds worse than it is. I'm just saying what the forum rulers were saying.

And they are great colors, indeed. I also turned off transparency because I was getting tired of that look. It looks a lot cleaner with that off, really.
