Hello. I thought it would be nice to start a desktop thread. Post a picture of your desktop so everyone else can see!

Take a screen shot (On Windows 95/98/2000/ME/XP you press the Print Screen or Print scrn key near SCROLL LOCK), open an image editing program like Microsoft Paint (Any will work, but Paint is the fastest and smallest file size), go up to EDIT, then PASTE. A picture of your desktop should show up, the screenshot you just took. Now save that. If it is more then 50k, either save it as a BMP or cut down on the file size somehow, or host it and link to it, what im trying to say is figure out how to get it on the forum. (If I wasn't clear, a picture of your DESKTOP)

I would do it but there are several reasons not to.

1 Too many hacked programs,  ohmy.gif
2 Not enough hacked programs disgust.gif
3. Personal information might be displayed crying.gif
4. Boring desktop dontgetit.gif

And Five, the main reason I won't display my desktop........

(Drum roll please....)

I don't want you knowing that I'm still using windows 3.1  w00t.gif

My desktop has an active star trek lcars (library computer access retrieval system) display with blinky lights and all. And in the center display is my favorite GVC.  wub.gif  wub.gif  wub.gif Sorry about the jpeg artifacts in this capture. sad.gif
