Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

I've been waxing nostalgic, and decided to use one of my Chicago Trek Con 2010 pictures as my wallpaper. This is one from Christopher Lloyd's Q&A:

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

Not to sound totally uncultured, but to sound totally uncultured, what is that painting and by whom?

Got a second, albeit smaller, monitor the other day. its more pronounced this way. ordinarily, you really don't notice.

Don't feel too bad: I recognized the painting, but I've never heard of the artist.

Is that a 2 monitor set-up?

Uhm, yeah. As i wrote, i bought a new screen the other day. So i'm now running a 22" Philips 1680x1050 and a 19" LG Flatron 1440x900 (one helluva screen i might add.) all powered by a Radeon HD6970.

And yeah, i'm getting another Flatron in a few days. Dual screen is for pussies. real men run triple.

Re: The new Post Your Desktop thread

I really don't like the LG Flatron I got last year (W2240).

Sometimes it just doesn't look like it's displaying things well. And I see some weird discoloration at times.

My "Enterprise at Titan" wallpaper looks grainy, even though it comes right from a blu-ray screenshot. Yet the Amy Pond one looks beautiful (in so may ways).

Plus the lack of being able to raise & lower it means I have it on a stack of phone books to get the proper height.

I love that kind of work. I love rainy type artworks anyway, but that one has a lot of atmosphere and I can't help but stare at it and notice every detail.
