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.
Well, I don't have anything bad to say about my L194WT. I had some issues with it flickering, but that ended up being a faulty VGA cable. Now that I replaced it, the screen runs fine.

I ended up putting two crappy dvd's underneath, to raise it a bit. But since none of my other screens can be lowered or raised, its not a big deal for me. I've gotten used to it.

The only thing I hate about dual/triple monitor setups is that its so damn hard to find any decent wallpapers. My current one is good enough, but its still a bit blurred. And that annoys the hell out of me. I think I'm just gonna stick to a solid color like they do in school. Then again, try finding a wallpaper for six monitors...

^ Y'know, if you got rid of all those icons, you could have 2 Jewel pictures side-by-side.

Here's my present desktop.



It's an image my girlfriend took from her room in halls at uni in London a few years ago manipulated in a site called psykopaint made to look a bit like something what Van Gogh would have painted.

And here's the original photo:

Not to sound totally uncultured, but to sound totally uncultured, what is that painting and by whom?
Don't feel too bad: I recognized the painting, but I've never heard of the artist.
I saw a very good exhibition about this painter and his brother (who was a photographer). I was very impressed, he's not the most famoust Impressionniste but he became one of my favorite.

On topic : one of my spring wallpapers. Until summer

I now have my new desktop background. Thanks for the link. I think I'll be keeping this one a while, too.
