    I have tried that already. Thanks for the tip, though. I've also tried various 'Cmd' commands and system restore. The icons are there, they are present when i check the desktop via Windows Explorer, but not on the actual desktop.

    I'm gotta reformat the C: partition soon, because I'm losing my patience. and i never had much of that to begin with...

    Ooh, me likey.

    The art style almost looks familiar, but I can't place it – who drew that?

    I wish I knew. I did know at one time, but I've since forgotten.

    EDIT: I did a little digging around and found out the artist's name is Samantha Robinson, and the work is called "As Nature Sleeps".

    ^Holy crap, that was my guess. I discounted it, though, because I didn't see that picture on her DeviantArt page.

    ETA: Except that it's right there in the bottom row, so I'm a blind idiot.

    It's just a shame most of her work isn't wallpaper ready. She's very talented.

    The full-size version of that image is 400x2250 pixels, though, so unless you're running CNN's monitor from The Situation Room, I bet it's fine.

    And, yes, I know you said "most", but I've been up all night and will not pass up the opportunity for some snark, dammit.

    And what if I am running CNN's monitor from the situation room? That thing could use a little personality, dammit! :lol:

    Then you need to start putting Trek images on it. I want the Sombreroprise behind Wolf Blizter on at least two broadcasts. Clear?

    BTW, I would post my desktop to be on-topic, but it contains so much nudity that I'd have to basically censor the whole thing. Sooooooo much nudity. It's awesome.

    PM me. :lol:
    I used to put those up (and censored, though not always completely :lol:), but now I change them if I'm going to do a PYD post.

    Actually, it is a rather lovely wallpaper.


    I have the perfect witty rejoinder for that, but it's not happening here. :lol:

    Wow, I didn't know cryptic (and highly exaggerated :lol:) nakedness would cause this much interest.

    Check your PMs momentarily.
