    Ah yeah. One of the first "canned" games I had for the C64 was strip poker. Nothing says sexy like pixelated boobage. :lol:

    This is a still from an upcoming Superbowl ad that features a kid as Darth Vader. The commercial is for a car company and it is funny.

    New computer is built and operational. I had a few problems with drivers, but it all works now. :hugegrin:

    I'm fussy about wallpapers. Too high contrast and icons can get lost in there. Too low contrast and the image looks wrong. Too concrete and the background is distracting. Too abstract and the image feels bland... I'm using a variation on my old wallpaper at the moment, that feels nicely balanced to me.

    Getting in early. No doubt I'll have tired of it by the time this year's contest actually rolls around. :lol:

    Just put this one up today. It's a throw back paint scheme on the EA6B Prowler for the Centennial of Naval Aviation.

    Oh, yeah. Does anyone know how to get the desktop icons back? That three year old is the true embodiment of evil. I'm certain of it.

    ^ Go to the Start menu (windows icon) > click All Programs > scroll down and right click on the program(s) whose icon(s) you want on the desktop > hover over Send To until the side menu opens > click Desktop (create shortcut). The icon for that program will then appear on your desktop.

    If you just mean the default Windows icons (my computer, network, recycle bin, etc.), just right click on an empty part of your screen > click Personalize > click Change Desktop Icons > select which icons you want to restore > and then click Restore Default.
