View Full Version : Post you desktop!

Well, it's been awhile since a "post your desktop" thread, so here we go! What's a forum without one of these anyway?


The ad screws it up, so to view it better, go here:

[highly suspicious look]

Gonk, what's that "Wet Sponge" thing that you've got minimised on your taskbar in the top pic??? :eek: ;) :D :p

[highly suspicious look will continue until explanaton is offered] :D

01-19-2002, 11:08 PM
Wet Sponge is a good friend of mine. I was engaged in an msn chat with him when I took the screenshot. He's the older brother of a forum goer here- Millions of Monkeys. We were having a discussion about a girl I'm meeting on Tuesday to see a movie. We were also discussing SOF2 and how he doesn't want them wasting time on JKii, when they could be perfecting SOF2.

Hows that? Be sus no more, my friend. Be sus no more :)

I'm running Windows 98 . . .

As for the penguin, someone gave me a picture of a cute as hell penguin, the picture was so damn cute in fact I redrew it. And that is the file you see on my desktop.

how do you post a desktop i'd like to know

02-03-2002, 02:05 AM
Just upload a screenshot of your desktop to your own personal web space, then post the picture with the image ubb tags or a link to the picture

02-03-2002, 07:26 AM

Unlike you inconsiderate bastards, i compressed mine. :p

and Jackal, if you made that, let me be the first to say YOU AM TEH WIN!!!!11

I thought for sure that one usually got censored???? :confused:

Does it not censor posts with pics or something??

BTW - cute desktop, Broode :)

I reckon someone forgot to re-enable it after the server move... hehe... ;)

Here's mine. (I made that wallpaper :D)


02-04-2002, 05:34 PM

a lot of

star wars stuff there


I dont know about anybody else here but I've never placed ANYTHING that is movie related, especially StarWars. I rather have original stuff. Simple icons. Custom wallpaper I make most of the time. etc. But no star wars stuff. Why? I dont really have a lot of control to the poses and etc. I mean if I could get a private segment with the actors and tell them what to do I'd make GREAT wallpapers. But before and after I'll need to do a one on one with Natalie Portman... well maybe more then twice. :p

02-04-2002, 05:54 PM
Well...this one is temporary...but still...

Put this background together about a month ago, but never finished it. I just found this post and decided to dust it off and finish the image (before I had just the windowsXP background). It's not perfect, but I was in a hurry to post ;).

So it's my background for today, might change it tomarrow :D.

This is my desktop (no, it is not a fuc*ing windows system :D). It is Linux, running a KDE-Desktop. A veeeery nice desktop, very comfortable, totaly themeable and so on. I love it.

Yes I did post a windows desktop, but I'm also sitting next to a slackware box. I'd post a background pic, but I installed it GUI-less :nut:

I am using Red Hat 7.2 on all my systems now - rock solid. Many of my friends are using Red Hat too after they saw how sweet it is. Good bye Windows! :)

Here's my (cluttered) desktop...


I've been a bit busy playing a few games. :D

03-04-2002, 08:43 PM
Uhh, wow. You could say that. ;)

03-04-2002, 08:56 PM
And I thought I had a cluttered desktop:eek:
Gee...Lots of classic games in there too...I don't think DF original will work on my comp now. Or if it does then it's a hassle because DOS games can occasionally screw up windows REALLY well...

03-04-2002, 09:51 PM
It probably depends on your OS. I'm running Win98SE, and I had no problems getting DF to run at all. The sound might glitch now and again, but it's a small price to pay...

There are actually a few missing that just wouldn't run very well...

1. Lands Of Lore 1 - won't run at all. Pity, I enjoyed that game.
2. Lands Of Lore 2 - runs, but I can't be bothered with it at the moment.
3. MS Golf - lost the disk. :D
4. Klingon Honour Guard - killed my system before, so I gave it to a friend. (cruel, aren't I? :D )
5. Tomb Raider - hated the controls, so I gave it to my niece...
6. Tomb Raider II - gave it to a friend
7. Daggerfall - gave it to a friend
8. Duke Nukem 3D - corrupted disks, dammit! :mad:
9. Monkey Island II - lost a disk - and the code breaker - but I doubt it would have worked anyway... :(
10. Eye of The Beholder III - is too stupid to realise there is plenty of memory available - but it was the worst of the series, so I'm not worried about reinstalling it anyway. :p
11. Ultima Underworld II - had a problem last time I tried to install it...maybe one of the floppy disks is corrupt. :(
12. Betrayal at Krondor also has issues at the moment, but I had it running before, so I probably need to tweak the DOS session settings again...
13. Haven't tried reinstalling Malice for Quake yet...
14. Daikatana - hmmmm...maybe it should RIP...

Good job I've got a 40Gb drive... :D

Especially with all the titles I want to add this year... :eek:

03-05-2002, 09:27 AM

I took a classic theme and did a bit of tweaking. First off, I grabbed the 1600*1200 logo wallpaper, and then painstakingly used paint.exe to edit out that ugly URL. Then I set it as my desktop in Windows XP, which automatically stretched the image to 2048*1536. I'm running 2048*1536 thanks to XP's option to ignore monitor limitations. On an 18" display, this kicks more @$$ than you could possibly imagine.
