What is your desktop background? (possibly large Image warning)

As long as it's safe for work, please.

 

 

I cycle between a number, but this is the one I currently have up:

This is what I have on my desktop:

On my laptop, it's currently a picture of my girlfriend, but here's what I had before:

The "sunset-lit waves" stock background included with Mac OS X.

 

 

Yeah, mine's the stock ocean scene that Windows 7 Starter comes with; because it's Starter, I don't think I could change it even if I wanted to. ;)

These are some great screens. I go to the Artchive and get famous paintings. I tried to post my current one, but I get the "post too short" error.

No offense, but I really don't like it when people put pictures of their girlfriends on their desktops. (Sorry Rock).

 

To be fair, he didn't show us her, so what's the problem? By the way Rock, is that from Super Mario Galaxy that background?

Well I don't really care, it's just the fact that so many people these days have pictures of their girlfriends/boyfriends on their desktop, and occasionally and worse yet pictures of them kissing. It's just going a bit overboard in my opinion. It would be epic creepy if such a thing were actually posted. :teeth:

 

You should do a huge rant on Youtube about it. :P

Well, glad you don't like it :P

 

I used to find that kitch and cheesy, but who cares? I'm not showing it around, and you probably don't understand love (Y)

Plus it makes one happy when I open it and she's around :)

Um no

Also this one is a running inside joke at school, when someone isn't looking you go on their computer and change their background to this:

Also sometimes this (tiled of course):

Interesting. Is he a guy everyone knows or hate in your school?

 

Also, I wonder what's the next point of mine (which is only a personal choice in my own personal life) you'll bash on with all your might like if I were to change my mind about it, though.

Also this

The person in the picture is Bob Barr, who has been joked about quite a lot but isn't really hated. It's like a school-wide computer meme.

I think this is worthy of a spin-off topic, actually. The issue of hoarding pictures of exes has never been more relevant than in the digital age; when it comes to using such pictures as backgrounds on the devices we spent more time with than our families, it becomes that much more fascinating.

I'm just stating my opinion, if you want me to stop "bashing" your ideas I can do so. You can do what you want, it is your choice and not mine, in fact I personally don't want you to change because that would be too controlling of me. I'm not even bothered at all, I only commented that I don't particularly like it. It just seems I'm unable to state my own opinions without someone thinking I'm trying to annoy or troll. This is the current problem I'm having now, and why I think I'm sometimes not approved of here...

 

All right, all right! I'll drop it!

The thing is, I don't have any evidence to back up my claim that I don't like GF pictures on devices

 

You don't need evidence for that; if it's your opinion, by definition all you need to do is say "I don't like GF pictures on devices," and that's it. I mean, I suppose it might help to convert people if you gave specific reasons why you don't like it when people use pictures of their romantic flames as their desktop backgrounds, but no one can tell you that your opinion is invalid.

I don't remember where I got it (but I didn't make it)...

 

I found this one and it's too cool to not post it here.

If you can find the source I'll link to it here.

On my desktop, I also started using this:

Nice one James. I really like it.

 

My desktop background has switched around quite a lot recently... Right now, it's a picture of Yvonne Strahovski. It used to be a Pokémon wallpaper, then a Mario DDR wallpaper

My background is currently a picture that I took in Ecuador, more specifically while on a boat taking us between islands in the Galapagos. It has been this way since July, so it might be high time to change it if I get an idea for something better.

My next one will probably be a picture of my band, but for now waking up to Yvonne Strahovski is already making my days start better :P

To those who don't know, this is the Hoenn Region from Pokemon, made on Minecraft. Not by me though  :P

Looks nice. I wish they would add volcanoes to real Minecraft so that they spawn in-game, but that's off-topic.

Oh snap that's amazing.

 

Here's the thing. I have like 70 different images that would totally fit either as a cover picture on Facebook or as a desktop wallpaper, I have to constantly cycle them  :facepalm:

Hi,

 

I usually change my wallpaper every couple days/weeks. My current one is this:

This is only a thumbnail. The real one is 1024x768. Check out the link for Blurry Wall on my webpage for more.

Would it necessarily be a ROM hack? I figured someone just drew it...

That's also what I'd figured, I'd like to see it in a ROM hack though if it ever exists :P

It sure looks like it was created using the map tools in Lunar Magic or whatever that program is called as it looks exactly like the normal SMW tileset. If anything it definitely could be made into a hack if it isn't already.

In honor of my Let's Glitch of the game, I changed my background to this (plus I think the picture looks nice):

I use the Astronomy Picture of the Day as the home page for my browser.  Whenever there's a picture I particularly like, I copy it into a special folder.  I use the desktop background slide show feature to pull pictures from this folder, changing them every six hours.  I currently have about 250 pictures in there.  Here is the main page and a few examples:

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120625.html

Clicking on the picture itself will usually give you a larger version.

About a week ago I discovered the wallpaper "shuffle" feature on my laptop.  Right now it cycles through the 3 pics my laptop came with, plus I threw in my favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! monster:

Probably will add more pics to the mix eventually.
