    Ya you all knew it would be coming soon anyways =p

    Some things to mention though. Try to keep them 1024 *resized* or 1280 *resized* anything large please use "attach file" as we want to keep the browser from having to go wicked side scrolling.

    Currently mine:

    Running 1280x800, not resized for detail.
    The background is a dox original, and usually i would have a hacked start menu, but it kept on reverting back so i stopped changing it.

    Hmm... Mine is going to require crazy resizing, heh. I run a tripple monitor 1600x1200 (CRT) - 1680x1050 (22'' LCD) - 1280x1024 (19"LCD)

    Making my desktop a whopping 4560x1200 when I take a screenshot, heh. Currently at work for the next 8 hours, so the actually image shall be delayed.

    Same vacation as in my previous post.
    This is the fast ferry transporting me from Patras (Greece) back to Corfu (Greek island).

    The fact why I like this picture is because it was taken with the camera on 'night setting'. So the shutter time (?) is quite large. Then it is better *not* to move the camera. As you can see, I obviously did move the camera accidently, but the effect is rather nice. Almost as if I did it on purpose... :blush:

    Yeah, I know its wide, but I couldnt make it much less wide because then it would be too small... I love my monitor set up...

    I felt I should change my wallpaper to the game I've been addicted to as of late.

    The background is made from this program - John's Background Switcher that shuffles pictures every hour with random shots from whatever folder you have it set to, from your hard drive or you can set it to whatever sections you like at flickr, phanfare, picasso, etc.

    I actually wrote a program almost exactly like that, probably not as nice, but similar. I had it change my background only on startup and it would either do it from a folder, Flickr, or there was a wallpaper website that I used.

    It never really got past the functional stage.

    Pauls Stages of Programming:

    1. Idea - That would be a cool program!
    2. Prototype - Lets do a demo and see if I can get it working.
    3. Functional - All basic functions work. Sometimes. Mostly hard coded. Oddly enough, this is where 90% of my programs stop.
    4. Finished - Most bugs have been squished and I organize the GUI into a more coherent, but still unfathomable structure. I think I have had 2 or 3 programs get to this stage, counting the Steam chat logger.

    Despite what it may look like, I'm running Windows XP, not Vista. I'm using the Vista Z4 skin.
