    I'm curious to see what your desktop wallpapers are.

    This is my favorite for more than 8 months right now...

    I hope it's suitable for watching for those with webblockers ;) :D

    Take a look in your Winnt folder. There should be several BMP files - one of them is your wallpaper.
    Convert it into jpg with a pictureviewer or graphics program.

    e.g. IrfanView www.irfanview.com

    Or try hitting the print key.
    You can then paste the screenshot into Irfanview or a similar program and save it as jpg.

    You might have to enable this first. Run dxsetup from the start menu and enable print key.

    My desktop looks like it's made of wood. Nice grain too. I have this in tiles on my screen, of course.

    My home wallpaper isn't suitable to post while at work, but let's just say that Ali Landry wears a string bikini very well.

    My work wallpaper rotates. I get most of it from http://www.mikebonnell.com. Currently, I have a picture I got from my China trip up.
     
  18. Mine kind of looks like this right now.
