    That's a cool clock widget, Squigs.

    I'm glad you approve, J. :D

    New desktop, still sort of safe for work:

    Well, it's from my home computer, which I mostly use for entertainment purposes. If it was a work computer, then I would definitely get no work done. :)

    ^ 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:

    They are characters from a story of mine, drawn by an artistically talented friend. :)
    So mostly the same things everyone here uses their computers for. :D

    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.com/ngsimages/explore/explorecomp.jsf?xsys=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:

    [​IMG]

    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. :D

    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.
