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

    Here's my present desktop.

    [​IMG]

    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:

    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.

    Once I saw this in the SOTL thread, I had to have it as my wallpaper:

    ^ Love that. I want it!

    Thought I'd try one of my own shots as a wallpaper:

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

    What's the name of that weather gadget? I like the separate parts.

    ^ Right-click on the desktop, go to gadgets, it opens a window with all the gadgets, if you look bottom right, there should be a "get more gadgets online" link. The moon is a separate gadget by the way. Enjoy! :)

    I love the whole design of it. It's bright, colorful, and adorable.
    Just like Rainbow Dash. :D

    I got it from a Google aggregator which lead me to a page full of wallpapers, so I'm not entirely sure if I could retrace my steps. I'll upload the whole image and let you grab it from here.

    Full size image here.

    Edit: Found the original link, which is here: Wallpaper Link. I didn't see any other MLP images on that page, though.
    Edit again: But, when you click on the title of that entry, it shows two other related MLP wallpapers, and they're both pretty awesome!

    J., you're turning into a one trick pony.
