    Here's mine, now show yours! Just push the Print Screen button on you keyboard, go to paint and do edit, paste. Go to file,save as,name it, and then upload it online, and voila! If you don't have a website, go here.

    EDIT:BTW:I run Windows 2000 Professional!

    here's mine, after way too much effort:

    [image=http://jupitertronic.www2.dotnetplayground.com/images/desktop.jpg]

    i'm at 1024x768, i just minimized it a little cause the file size was huge even at the lowest quality. i'm running winME and want it to die. witness how it screws up my trillian list's buttons on the bottom. *rolls eyes* ;p

    MJ: Go to help, and it should give you a link to get WSFTPPro(FTP program) for free. Click it, and download it. Then press the print screen button on your keyboard, and go to MSPaint, and go to edit,paste, and it should show up, but it helps if you have PSP or Photoshop cause then you can transfer the image from a BMP to a JPG by doing save as, and scroll down the selection of filename endings, and go to .jpg on the selection, and then you go to file, save as, and name it. Then go to the help again, and click on the WS FTP tutorial link, and it'll tell you how. I might also suggest asking JupiterTronic if you're still stumped.

    I give up. Just go here, and it's the top pic, the one of Cary Grant. That's my desktop.

    Here's my updated desktop. I got rid of Windowblinds because it was sucking up my memory, even ask Sideshow, who helped me on that.

    um weird, i got an error while trying to post this. so i'll just start again.

    kev, i see you're running neoplanet. that takes me back. i used to use nothing else until it started screwing up on me for some unexplained reason. you gotta love a fully skinnable browser.

    new desktop. :D

    [image=http://jupitertronic.www2.dotnetplayground.com/images/desktopviggo.jpg]

    i made the wallpaper about an hour ago with the screenshots i took when i rented the prophecy. it's my favorite wallpaper yet, i think. whee!

    and no more complaining about file size, people (i'm looking at you, ronin). it won't get any smaller without looking like complete crap. trust me, i've played with photoshop for hours with the same results. ;p and you all have broadband anyway! so SHUSH.

    :)

    [image=http://www.kreleia.com/images/kre_wallpaper2.jpg] [image=http://www.kreleia.com/images/kre_wallpaper3.jpg]

    I only had the Padmé background up for a day before I saw the Rogue wallpaper. :D I'll probably go back to that one soon.

    Well the girls and I have a huge summer project...we just bought our domain name and will be building our site!!

    We are gamers, big time, live action mixed with some dice. The story we have been working on started in the 5th grade for Mystic and I. Then picked up again in high school with Kat and I in AZ. Now all three of us live here in San D and game on Friday nights. Some of you have seen my artwork and heard a few of my stories. Well when the site is done we will have weekly updates to our Epic, character bios, drawings and other fun stuff!

    Stay Tuned!!!


    Oh but here is my current wallpaper at work...

    Thanks! :) I happen to like (and identify with) strong female characters. That, and I've never had any complaints from Rob about my choices. [face_laugh] :D

    I / we have Win 98 (horrors! ;)) and a cranky local ISP.

    Three words: forcenet fan art. Favorite images: the Falcon "orbiting" Earth, someone's ESB photo-collage and "alt"'s wallpaper of Obi-Wan (Ep II) with a blue background.

    The wallpaper has to be very simple (the X2: Rogue one is not) because of all the icons someone else insists on keeping on the desktop! :p

    I like the Padme one, too. Marrying strong women is a Skywalker tradition. Thank goodness!
