That's hilarious.

Do you have your icons auto-arranged to the right side of the desktop, or do you do that manually?

Heh heh, glad you liked it Neil. I've been enjoying it thus far, and haven't seen fit to replace it yet. There's a certain je ne sais quois as to why I find it funny, but I do.

Okay, I just made this. This is 1024x768, made PNGs in GIMP. I don't know what the difference is between these two versions; there were two options when saving multi-layered stuff as PNG, and one was "merging" and the other was "flatten" I think. These are the results.

When I redid a bunch of wallpapers to match the new branding for CoNniversary this year, I actually did official versions of these, in case anyone wanted them. smile.gif

New PC, new wallpaper. This is, actually, the first time I've ever used CoN wallpaper on a PC full-time for a variety of reasons. Full size 1920x1200.

Happy to see that my striped idea is now official! Maybe I'll actually get one that actually fits my screen...

Anyhow...

That's Chihaya Kisaragi, a character from the Idolmaster games/anime series. The screenshot comes from episode 4 of the second anime series (the one that's not the crazy alternate universe with mechs). Here she is, riding the train home at the end of the day, as her signature song "Aoi Tori" ("Blue Bird") plays as that episode's ending theme. I just think that this picture really reflects her personality well; she's quite a contrast to a number of the other characters who are all bubbly happy and such. She's not the most charismatic person usually, though if you give her a microphone and a stage...magic happens. And like me, she's much more interested in the music than the show biz trappings.

Her birthday, according to canon, happened to be yesterday, February 25.

I rotate randomly through this and 176 other possible wallpapers, every three hours. Short enough to keep it interesting, but not so short as to distract me with anticipation for the next one.

I actually just redid my whole OS look. I previously had Windows Aero going, but after Livestream Procaster and a few other programs expressed their disagreements with it, I got fed up and decided to switch over to Windows Classic. This time, though, instead of just taking the default settings, I decided to mess with everything -- the fonts, the color schemes, and all.

In case you're curious:
* Desktop background color (which appears in picture borders when picture doesn't fill the screen; I have it on "fit"): red 0/green 32/blue 0 (dark green)
* Active title bar color: left side 0 0 128 (semi-dark blue), right side 0/128/0 (semi-dark green), size 18 (default), text
* Inactive title bar color: left side 52/82/75 (a blue-greenish grey), right side 123/114/78 (something roughly tan), text color 212/208/200 (very light tan)
* Title bar font: MicrogrammaDMedExt, size 10, Bold

And best of all: because I've eliminated the bells and whistles of the Aero animations, my computer seriously feels faster. It wasn't slow to begin with, but the immediacy of pulling up menus and windows instantly and stuff needing next to no time to appear really does feel significantly faster.

Well, I certainly wasn't going to have UNofficial ones out there! smile.gif Plus, it needed updating anyway to match the branding of the others, so it was an easy call.
