    Well, the last Desktops thread has been lost to the sands of time. Plus I'm too lazy to look for it. Plus it wasn't in Computer Tech.

    And so it begins. This is one of several excellent wallpapers that comes with the free download of Ghost I - IV by Nine Inch Nails. I'm not using any sort of Vista themepack, this is a modified version of a partially completed Microsoft skin for XP, based from the Royale theme that comes with XP MCE. It's called Royale Noir. It makes XP look way sexier.

    If any of you are wondering how to take a screen, rest assured that no software at all is needed. Just locate the print screen button on your keyboard and hit that. From there, open MSPaint go to Edit > Paste, and then your image will appear. Click File > Save As and change the type to Jpeg, and then attach it using the Attachment Manager when you reply to this thread in Advanced mode. That was easy.

    Here's mine, I've started keeping the desktop as clear as possible since the last time I cleared it out (there were about 100 icons scattered everywhere)
    The shiny thing is part of a fractal Pyritie made (I like shiny things with that feel of "If I were animated, you'd have a seizure!")

    Original picture is here.

    I generally flip between Starcraft 2 pictures and assorted epic/awesome pictures I find while surfing the interbutts.

    Well, this should be good. My desktop's funny picture (which is also my current avatar) is covered with icons. Now it may LOOK hard to get by, but it really isn't. All my software is easily accessible on my desktop, so I don't need to look for all my files in some hidden folders or something or other.

    Yet you have many files that need to be extracted. I see the accessibility there.

    Oh no. They are all already extracted. I just keep them there incase the files they change get messed up because of all the mods I put in my games, I.E. Oblivion and Unreal Tournament 2004/3.
