Sorry, I'm unfamiliar with the spoiler tag. I'm not quite sure at this time why it's necessary. Maybe you could let me know.  :)

It basically hides it until someone clicks the tag so that it makes the posts more readable and can reduce loading times for people with slower connections.
Normal is something we've invented to keep out the demons and Gods and magic and monsters that live just on the other side of the "normal' world we've built for ourselves.



Something whimsical...

Still a Work in Progress, But I'm generally happy with it for the moment.

Base wallpaper was from a wallpaper download that I then cleaned up.  (No longer available for download)
RocketDock at the bottom using the Wooden' skin.
Icons from the perennial British Library Windows Unabridged
MSStyles file Refined Woodwork
Calendar, Weather, CLI and Clock are all Samurize scripts I've pieced together and refined for my own tastes.

the panel at the bottom is RocketDock

i use a modified version with a grid layout for the buttons, each icon except a few have a grid that opens showing all icons in that related catagory, heres a pic to illustrate that:

Where'd you get those lovely icons for Linux?

The Window Manager:

The theme:

The cursor icons:

Extra wall papers from:

Well ... after a LOT of work, and many questions, I finally got e17 to work!  ;D
So, I've got that theme now too!

Now I just gotta figure out how to get those icons to work :(

Prof. J. Odderwall Costom

Ok, so a while back someone posted a DeviantArt link so some icons for Mac, and a couple of people told how to unpack them, but the methods for unpacking were windows only. I'd really like to use these, can someone help me out? I sure I'm being completely daft, and have missed something incredibly simple. Be that as it may, I am still learning the ways of these Ætherwebs.

Here's some walls for the Apple iPod Touch. Didn't know where else this would go. Just in case anyone was interested and owned one of those. I don't own one personally.

There's 21 in all. Zip file is approximately 5 megs.

Mr. Taggert the Pocket watch in the center of the gears on your desktop is the exact same one I'm wearing at this very moment :)

Here's mine. I found the wallpaper online, tweaked it, turned it green, etc. The XP theme is Zune by MS. The cursor is from Stardock.

I use the same cursor theme from Stardock, it's the best one I've found and seeing those little gears whirling away makes me happy.


Stardock's Cursor XP? May I have the name of the theme/cursor? - Edit nevermind, found it.

I Like the gray version of the wallpaper.

James Brittenham

Yeah, I switched to it when I realized it had more relief and fit better overall.

My current desktop. :D

I've looked through all of the pages here, I noticed that my rocketdock skin has made by someone here. Bravo! I found it a while ago when i first discovered rocketdock and thought that the other skins were boring. The rocketdock icons are various sets found on deviantART. I thought highlighting Steam would be appropriate. :D

The wallpaper. :B
I made it.

It needs to be updated though, I need to replace the "=" with an "@" . Oh well, it's on the long list of things to do when I get my laptop back.
