    ^ 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:

    Sorry for the image quality... I screen-captured the pic and blew it up to wallpaper size. It's a shot of my town from the 1950s -- no, it doesn't look at all like this now.

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

    Ooh. Where is that?

    Mars, baby. [​IMG] 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. :D
    (also, Cool Dashie for the win! :D )

    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.
