^ That's a really cool pic, CaptMurdock. Is it from anything in particular, or just someone's art?

I've had this up for a while now:

Not just art. That was a depiction of the Tektite undersea habitat and laboratory, from about 40 years ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tektite_habitat

I think that illustration may have appeared in National Geographic magazine at around that time.

Ha, found it: http://www.nationalgeographicstock.c...s=SE&id=619783

Wow! Seconded; nice job, M'Sharak!

New desktop! Been in a sci-fi writing mode lately, so I switched to something more appropriate for that kind of setting:



Yes, I do move my desktop icons around every time I change the picture so that they get in the way of the image as little as possible. I am that OCD about it.

I move my icons around to in an ocd manner. I just get rid of them.

I have keep my desktop empty--sometimes completely.

Also, I cannot tell which is more scifi-ish, your AV (Sukhoi Berkut?) or the wallpaper.

There's an app for that - it's called iconoid, let's you choose where on the screen the icons are (top, bottom, left or right) and hides them completely. I've been using it for years

Why would I need an app? As a rule, computers come pre-equiped with a delete button.

My girlfriend borrowed my computer the other day, so this is the new wallpaper. Ariel Rebel was kicked out faster that she could say "bikini".

Ha, I know how you feel. The way I use my comp and open programs, I wouldn't be able to have nothing on the desktop (one of the things I like about Win 7, it has more ways to open stuff. I'll probably upgrade eventually). But I keep as little on there as possible, and between it and the quick launch bar, I make sure I have easy access to everything I use frequently.
Also, I cannot tell which is more scifi-ish, your AV (Sukhoi Berkut?) or the wallpaper.
Well, they both are pretty sci-fi, really. The former is actually a fighter from an anime called Yukikaze; here is the pic from which I clipped my avatar: .
Though there certainly is a resemblance to the Berkut, now that you mention it.

The desktop wallpaper is an awesome ship design from one of the more talented 3D modelers at scifi-meshes.com. Sadly, I actually haven't seen anything from him in quite some time. Besides the ship in my wallpaper, he also did this insanely cool looking ship (which has also served as my wallpaper previously, and no doubt will do so again one of these days ).

That's a pretty good shot of the D, but my goodness that's a lot of icons, I would go insane.

Awesome! I'd stare longer, but my OCD is forcing me to try and re-arrange your icons and I can't!
