An old classic: how does your desktop look like?
« on: April 05, 2010, 02:09:19 AM »
My laptop screen is this one below. My desktop ain't safe for work... *ahem* :D



And the desktop. Model is the Dane Helena Christensen. Original photo was with white background. I did some photoshop work on the photo including adding the black background.

Before you write me a pm, ask yourself, if it ain't better to write it in the forum. It usually is.

I usually have one of my ship photos on the desktop, but I don't like all the shortcuts mucking up the photo, so I put them all in a folder called (shortcuts)  :) I think a clean D-Top is neater and better looking.

In a battle Seawolf is over a century ahead of me, and I'm glad he's on my side, but I too like the nautical theme....

Ah the days when men were men Give me a star and a open sea
and I would still crash the ship into something



Here is HMS Warrior she is docked at Gosport just down water from the warships picture above

Royal Envoy's Screen Saver by PlayRix


I have just completed a game called Royal Envoy which is released by
PlayRix and I must admit is a very enjoyable and addictive little budget game.
I Brought it through SpinTop games and on completion you get this free
screen saver which made me think of Aanker's desktop screen so I placed the
screen save up for you to use if you so wish as it is great.
I turned the full screen Antialiasing up to 8 samples and it looks
really cool running at that. you can find the options in the screen saver settings.  thup1

you can download it here ... download1

Enjoy and don't forget to check out the game.  clap1

My current desktop background pic, which reflects another of my interests.

"Our orders are simple: go out, find the enemy, sink him, escape to kill again, and return home safely. It does not matter how the enemy travels, in convoy, in pairs, or alone...I will find him and sink him wherever he is. This is the task assigned to me as a U-boat commander." - KL Kurt Hossel (my SH3 persona)
