    I've been using this for about four years now:

    I found it on Depthcore.

    I occasionally rotate this one in:

    yeah, Nightwing was something Superman used. Flamebird, an identity that Jimmy Olson used, has been taken by Bette Kane in Batwoman's book.

    That's worded a bit weird

    Bette Kane has been Flamebird since 1989; she's appearing in Batwoman's book currently

    You two are men after my own heart! I manually rotate (though I'll be upgrading to Windows 7 in the next week, so I'll definitely be using the switcher) between a bunch of supernova remnants. The best part is, most of the pictures floating around are already huge and easily cropped into backgrounds or even used raw.

    Gonna in-line them because you can't link dropbox folders for some reason.

    Cassiopeia_A_Spitzer_Crop.jpg

    Same as the last one, but true colour, because a lot of them are cross-spectrum photos;

    Also, this is currently my iPad desktop, and thanks to the way the iPad handles the transparency, the background is all black and it actually looks better then the white it shows up as.

    Not at all, thanks to the automatic resizing. Really, tall desktops (like I post) are way worse.

    Rightclick-> properties ->change icon

    Only works for shortcuts I think, if you open up properties and it says its an .exe (application) file then right click ->send to desktop/make shortcut and you can edit that

    And I'm glad you guys like rainmeter so much!

    Rainmeter a lot more stable than it used to be.
    Also decided I'd try using Trillian instead of Pidgin for chat for a bit.

    Yeah, just right click the bookmark in the bookmark bar and delete the text.

    My second monitor is my 42" tv.

    It is pretty nice. I just drag vlc or whatever browser I want to watch something in over and maximize it on the tv. My speakers are also a surround sound system in my room.

    It rotates a dozen or so pictures in the same style. I still want to add an RSS feed in the style of a magazine cover headline.

    a lot of people who code professionally orient their monitors vertically

    (though I don't know if this guy does, maybe dude just likes it this way)

    Yup. I tried it out on a lark once and never looked back. It's just so much nicer.

    I mean, 99% of what I do on my computer is reading, writing, doing layout design and web browsing, and for all of those, portrait style gives me more realestate and less scrolling.

    The only time I wish I had a horizontal screen is when I want to watch a DVD or a YouTube video in fullscreen. Otherwise it's golden - I can even float VLC at the bottom of my screen and not have it get in the way of my work.
