Not a new desktop, but a new experience: what happens when icons fail to load on my desktop.

So.... Long time no see...

I was randomly perusing facebook when a wild CoN link popped up, and I thought, "I haven't been there in awhile."

My computer recently did bad things, and I had to reinstall windows, and start from scratch... again... and I saw desktops.

My old post on page 4 reminded me of a simpler era, and I totally recycled that same image to my new desktop.

And again, hi to all the peoples I've neglected over the past 3 years. tongue.gif

I'd been using my old desktops for many years now, apparently, so I took the chance this week to clean up my main desktop and replace both monitors as such:

user posted image

I did some work to try to standardize the colors, but I didn't like how it turned out so I just left them as is. It's rare that I see both desktops at once anyway so it doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would.

The black bar on the left side, btw, is because my left monitor is only 1280x1024 but my right side is 1920x1200.

Not safe for work mostly because of the title of the photo on my desktop that used to be my background.

I found the new picture in this Youtube video, which actually made me laugh out loud.

Edit
I actually previewed this post so I wouldn't have to edit it for tiny mistakes, but for some reason I didn't believe it would actually post an exclamation point I didn't type, even when the preview said it would. It was after the Youtube hyperlink, so I assumed it was just some sort of error in the way the preview showed up due to formatting. That's a pretty weird glitch.

It is neither Ireland or Switzerland! I am still living in Ireland - though not for much longer - and so my wallpaper is actually to remind me of home. This is a farm in Lacrosse County, (western, God bless it) Wisconsin. Those lovely bluffs are common in the area: we're called the 'driftless' region because the glaciers didn't come through and flatten everything out the last time they were here.

Hah. This farm is of no relation to me, though I cycle through that particular area sometimes. My grandparents do farm on the Minnesota side, but for whatever reason I haven't any good pictures of their farm, so this one suffices.

Scrolling back through some of the old ones, wow, Josh's FFXIV concept art dual-monitor one is gorgeous.

Ah, that IS pretty.

That said it seems you're blessed with multiple screens of the same size that sit side-by-side. Sadly, I am not...

Nope, as you can see from my latest one, I am not, either. At the time of that XIV one, I was on two 1280x1024 monitors, and now I'm on one 1920x1200 and one 1280x1024. I don't mind it at all. smile.gif

Necromanced! My beer nerddom and my soccer nerddom coalesced today with the announcement that my favorite local brewery from my time living in Kansas is commemorating my favorite American soccer team. The label design they posted to Facebook was the perfect side to take over my smaller monitor on my work PC:

But it wasn't big enough to replace the one I had on the larger monitor that I put on last November.

One of my wallpapers is like that. But it's taken from the Cave Story mod "Schism":

Might as well bump this while I'm here. I moved to a 3840x1200 setup for my work PC last year, and was too lazy to try to make my old smaller desktop (see like five posts above) size up properly. So I grabbed this off the internet and have it on both monitors.

And another new one because my preferred soccer club wins trophies. And I thought this was a classy pattern.
