The Posty Desktop Thread - I Lost It Edition

Post by Shadowman » Dec 29th, 2010, 20:50

Hi guys. I'm curious again- what images do you have on your desktops? How are they organized? What is the square root of pi?

So post screenshots of your desktops here. You'll probably have to use thumbnails, since the Forum's layout is not yet fluid.

For starters, here's my new one, with fancy new Dock icons on the top!

Blood's not on there yet because two days into having the macine, Windows update corrupted the OS, leading me to have to reinstall Windows again.

So come on guys. Let's see those desktops!

Am I allowed to cheat and clean it first?

I'd probably have to, I tend to keep some personal stuff I might need that given point in the timeline on my desktop.

Only the second, surprisingly. It seems an unwritten law dictates that each forum must have a thread of this kind once in a while.

Nice landscape. I used to use Opera too but I switched to Firefox because Opera didn't support Quake Live at the time.

Now it does but I'm too lazy to switch again.

Anyway here's mine :

The test mode thing is because you have to enable test mode to use a driver that allows you to upgrate your mouse USB polling rate to 500 / 1000 Hz. I could make it invisible with another software but I don't really like to use tons of weird things on my computer.

Also, I don't know why I didn't get rid of the bin, I think I didn't find a way to remove it.

Page not found! D:

But also, before you said the thing about the cosmos, the URL led me to believe it had something to do with a brothel.

Oh wait there it is. Didn't realize it was a link. Derp.

Total mess, no cleanup done prior to capturing. I only have icons on my right desktop though (I'm dualscreen).

Stylish Shodan there, Dime. The whole lot's nice and natural.

I've got the terrible habit of letting my desktop turn into a dog's breakfast before purging it. It's busy getting near to critical mass now, but you should've seen it before the last purge. Terrible stuff.

Here's mine now: Matt's Desktop (it's actually amusingly incriminating for those in the know)

I use more than one computer, and the monitors are all widescreen.

I've installed Windows 7 on all of them, except one which runs Linux Ubuntu (Gutsy Gibbon). All of them have very minimalist layouts. I usually save all downloads to the desktop, but each session I will clean up the desktop by finding a place for every downloaded item. This usually means at any given time, I have only my Recycle Bin in the corner.

Most of my desktop wallpapers have something related to Toad from Mario Bros. Toad is awesome. That is all.
