This image was the image of the day on Memory Alpha and decided to use it.

I always thought the Big E-D looked gorgeous on the big screen.

Mars, baby. It's a photo taken by the Opportunity rover when it first arrived at the rim of Endeavour crater. See a somewhat larger version of the image by scrolling to the bottom of the page here.

Wow. You know, when I was a little kid, I never dreamed I would ever see actual images of another planet. I saw artist's conceptions and such, but never high resolution, full color real-time images of a planetary surface. What luck that it would be my (2nd) favorite planet in the solar system.

Sorry, love the wallpaper, and it just reminded me of that.
(also, Cool Dashie for the win! )

^ Awesome!

Speaking of Christmas, I'm hoping MLP fans and artists put out a few Christmas wallpapers. Until then, I really wanted a nice splash of color and went for this for now:

I had to upgrade to best pony:



I ponified all my icons, too.

Rarity is best pony, but so is all ponies.

I decided to take a different approach with my wallpaper for this week, going back to how I used to have it. I love this wallpaper. I also updated the icons and re-instated my sidebar. I like how it turned out.

The icon set is called "HydroPro". Now, you could go searching for them and download them, but they're in PNG format. I converted them to ICO format and uploaded them.
Here's the zip file: http://www.mediafire.com/?9w0e85pu9rqz7w4
