Post Your Desktop [56k Users Beware] (in Off-topic)

MissingNo April 9 2009 2:31 AM EDT

I'm reviving the old post-your-desktop thread since we have new players since a few months ago.

To link your images:
<img src="IMG_URL.jpg" width="800">

The "width = 800" part is to stop the images from destroying the borders of the forum.

And keep it PG, please. :P

Linking it for good reason. You'll see. Also, it's 600k or so.

Brakke Bres [Ow man] April 9 2009 3:22 AM EDT

I can't believe anyone is using 56k these days anyway

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 9 2009 3:25 AM EDT

Thanks for reading, Kev.

The image size doesn't bother me, but on the last thread, an admin didn't like it and had to fix all the images so they fit width-wise on the page.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 9 2009 3:59 AM EDT

"PK, yours would look 100 times better without the clutter of all those icons. ;p "

I am serious. I should not be allowed to make posts past like...1 am.

Anyway, that was supposed to read Henk not, PK xD
I think the user pic change is what made me think the post was by PainKiller. xD My mistake, guys, sorry. lol

BadFish April 9 2009 4:40 AM EDT

I'd post mine, but it looks idiotic, because I found this sweet picture of James Dean with Japanese characters lined up beside him... (I don't know what they say but I bet it's something sweet about living fast and dying young) Anyway, the picture itself was really small when I found it so when I set it as a background it got blown up and is extremely

100k to the person who can find a cool picture of our friend JD that will look good on my ~16 inch monitor.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 9 2009 4:54 AM EDT

I CMed mine so as not to hijack this thread. ;p

You should make a new post in the contest forums for the best result, Badfishie!

That's awesome, Ovaltine!

Demigod April 9 2009 12:04 PM EDT

Agreed, Ovaltine's got the best one. I would post mine, but I have scrolling images that change every 15 minutes (ala window's power tools).

chaosal April 9 2009 12:16 PM EDT

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 9 2009 11:15 PM EDT

Have enough WoW shortcuts? :p

BadFish April 9 2009 11:18 PM EDT

yeah, i really dunno what i'm doing when it comes to computers if you cant tell, so i can't toss any shortcuts unless i'm positive i can still run my games without them.

Eliteofdelete [Battle Royale] April 9 2009 11:39 PM EDT

lol you cant break a game by deleting a short could like clean up half of the icons on your desktop and still be fine :)

Canibus April 10 2009 12:38 AM EDT

Ive always swore to the 98 design and I have like 5 shortcuts :p poker (what really matters),warcraft3 and some folder shortcuts, it looks really sad and grey ;) Fortunately there are always multible pokertables and browsers covering my sad desktop.

chaosal April 10 2009 1:20 AM EDT

i can't stand having a recycle bin. first thing i do to a computer is get rid of that.

Mesoshort April 10 2009 1:36 AM EDT

=O! Slayer has MSN ;)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] April 10 2009 1:46 AM EDT

Yeah, its not like you can see my msn address on my user page or anything :)

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] April 10 2009 1:56 AM EDT

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 10 2009 2:44 AM EDT


You can get rid of the recycle bin?

I just right click > Arrange Icons by > hide desktop icons

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] April 10 2009 4:14 PM EDT

My desktop is boring. But I realized that I forgot how to post images here, so this will be a test :P


chaosal April 10 2009 4:20 PM EDT

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] April 10 2009 4:28 PM EDT

Maybe it needs a good virus check :P

chaosal April 10 2009 4:30 PM EDT

That must explain the differences I have with Kevlar.

I am a big dog person. Hate, utterly hate cats.\

kevlar May 2 2009 2:10 PM EDT

I'm a dog person too, but cats are growing on me. Watching these 2 for a friend has been a nice experience.
