View Full Version : It's time again for that forum classic, post your desktop!
this should hopefully be self-explanatory.
in case it's not, post a screen grab of your desktop.
The icons are from a converted Mac OS X theme called BBX Platinum, and the desktop is out of that propellers thread omi posted at some point.

I would if I could, but I can't so I won't
I've got the same problem as Mac, only I have 30MB of webspace but no way to upload files to it.

EVE is hotter
(note: something is wrong with the server, this picture sometismes works, and sometimes does not. My apologies :) )

I'm getting a picture not found there.
(I also reserve this spot to post my desktop when I get home).
3rd Feb 03, 11:49 AM
It doesnt exist?
Youz link be down.
The amount of icons I have on my desktop prohibits me from posting a screenshot. It has to violate some decency standard.
3rd Feb 03, 12:11 PM
I'm rather iconoclastic myself. :)
Here's the background I use. These are Battlezone 2 combat hovercraft designed and painted by my pal Slaor - he's quite talented. (Apologies for size)
Hah, that's pretty slick. Ask him if he's interested in modelling or skinning some WW2 tanks for Blitz! :D
Hmm...my desktop is cheesy and badly designed. The only thing it has going for it is that it's a photo of my girlfriend. Hence, I won't be posting it without her permission...
lol @ bnonn. He's just showing off that he has a gf.
I've seen that desktop, and must say it needs work...
Take that how you will.
that's my current one. Anar Rinde is my clan here in New Zealand, of which Bnonn is also a member. The two logos are the q3 OSP logo and the ut2k3 logo, two games I play. Bnonn kciks my arse in q3, but we're even atm in ut2k3, at least some of the time.
Oh and the ut2k3 screenie is of about the second game I've won online, so I suppose if Bnonn can pimp his gf, then I can pimp my screenie.
btw bnonn, show your sig for all teh ppl to see.

this be my desktop (http://www.pbase.com/image/12061274)
And in case Martian's server is down
this be his desktop (http://www.pbase.com/image/12061239)
My sig really should be displaying. It was before. Maybe evil vB demons turned it off to irritate me.
And if you have any suggestions on improving my desktop I'd be happy to hear them...I just got totally stuck with it, as you can tell.

Click for a full-size image.
The more astute among you will notice this is the exact same pic I uploaded a few months ago when Xypher created a threat about desktops. That's because nothing at all has changed. In fact I've had the same desktop and Winamp skin for over a year now. Hurrah. \o/
3rd Feb 03, 6:11 PM
No NIN Dan? :)
and Martian; Rammstein? *sighs*
I'd post mine if some would upload it...

Why Blue Owns All (http://mywebpages.comcast.net/fitzh2o3/desktopbackground.JPG)
rc mad and Murph are winning so far.
I can't be bothered to post mine...it's got the HW2 concept art with the corvette thing going toward the star (like retroboy's current avatar) and toolbars/windows are dark grey-blue, black and white. And I don't have nearly the amount of crap some of you guys have...

The image from this site (http://www.paintandsuffering.com/) entitled "Matsu" (#23 in the paintings gallery) is currently on my gaming computer.
I'd rather put the color image featured here (http://www.digitalwebbing.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=19941) as desktop, but m' beloved puritanical ma would get offended at me.
The old image with the yak is still valid on my P-800. Everybody forgets I'm a farmer and thinks "Manure Application Logs," "Synergy Farm Accounts" and "Spartan CropWare" are some sort of gag icons...
3rd Feb 03, 9:49 PM
well pbase sure is useful.
Background is screenshot from Trigun, photoshopped, bottom left covered by taskbar says Vash, take care of Knives.
Yes, pbase is quite useful and it's free. I'm pretty sure that's a felony in Canada, but oh well.
I can't remember where I got the desktop, it's from a link I found here, I think. Time to replace it.
BTW, my name is not Johnathan McKay

4th Feb 03, 5:08 AM
Mac, I find it hard to picture Dyntheos as a potbellied angel with its wings glued on upsidedown.
No offense, Dyn. :)
uh vaarok, that drawing fails. Look at her tits. One is hanging lower than the other. That is just... weird. :D

Actually in RL most womens breasts are not perfect matches. So you would see a difference (when they are naked).

Yea.. I'm kindofa neat freak...

Blu: Some nights NIN is all I listen to, other nights I diversify. That shot was simply taken on the latter. \o/
Xyph: I don't think you have enough browsers installed. :p

Nice, clean, and neat... I like that.

Work desktop: Image is very low quality and has a few freaky errors because of the way I had to use word to mail it out :/
Home desktop: http://www.hv-cruiser.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/homedesk.JPG
omg frst where you get that image?
4th Feb 03, 2:23 PM
That is the coolest halo themed image ever!! EVER!
I second Murph's question.
4th Feb 03, 2:42 PM
Almost seems as if it is moving if you look close enough. Neato!
Btw, how are some of you getting rid of the recycle bin on the desktop...?
4th Feb 03, 4:22 PM
Mnementh wins. That is a sweet pic of the Master Chief. Please, Please give up the location for that bad boy.
4th Feb 03, 4:24 PM
4th Feb 03, 4:34 PM
Murph, whatchu mean? It's an armored chick with a naginata and tanto, minor boobiage visible.

4th Feb 03, 4:52 PM
Thanks Mnementh, I found an alternate site as well with several sizes here (http://halo.bungie.org/wallpaper.html?image=edgewallpaper.1024.jpg)
bungie is a better choice though I noticed "my link" doesn't have the subtle Halo 2 title on the top.
4th Feb 03, 9:34 PM
Ok, so is posting your desktop as easy as Print Screen? I don't think so. Someone please help me out here.
Press Print Screen, open paint, right click Paste. Volia!
I've got the same background image as mnementh, dyn's xp style, and vijils icons (that bottom folder has a different name).
nova: was using that background until a month ago when I switched over to the current one. can't remember where it came from either.
right then, little bit of a theme tweak on my part. :D I had to make the theme as cool as the icons
click for the full meal deal eh
Icons are BBX Platinum, theme is AikonXP, desktop is from pseudoart (http://www.pseudoart.com) with tweaked hues.
5th Feb 03, 1:51 AM
Haven't we done this before?
5th Feb 03, 2:33 AM
Looking ever the same ltdan
5th Feb 03, 2:38 AM
<docks points from everyone who has a scantily clad person as their wallpaper, then docks points from everyone who uses a stock MS shell, then docks even more points from everyone who uses XP with a theme that has roundy buttons.
i hereby apologize for my good taste.
I apologize for appreciating beautiful women as well.
I apologize for not spending hours tweaking something I'll look at for about 5 seconds.
5th Feb 03, 12:03 PM
Yep Mac, hasn't changed a bit.
5th Feb 03, 2:29 PM
where the hell do all you fellas with the fancypants themes and icons get them from? if i sat me down and said "i want custom crap for my pc" i wouldnt know what any of them were
www.deskmod.com is a great resource, as is www.wincustomize.com
