Wallpapers

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

That'd be fantastic! I've been looking around for some good backgrounds for my linux machine but haven't found too many that strike my fancy. I love anything binary, but won't complain on anything done! :D

Because there is only a nano particle of my brain that deals with computers - what does binary mean .... is it all those noughts and ones ? :pleasantry:

Yeah :mrgreen:, and I think you have more than a nano in your brain about computers, especially given the fact that you have more photoshop ability than I ever could/would/should have, hehe!

Little green 0s and 1s, that's all I ask for. *writes down on christmas list*

Ally, thanks very much! The underwater currently resides as my desktop wallpaper.

You do VERY cool art indeed. I hope to see more from you soon, and if you ever need a good critique, I'm your boy.

Cheers!

How about this one Vorlin - it's a bit Matrixy though. Apparently the 0's and 1's spell Vorlin according something I got from the web.

It doesn't mean that I know how they make the program do what it does. The workings of computers are a bit like car engines to me - something never to be looked at :mrgreen:

Do you think the forum gurus should move this thread to a place more private, so folks don't nicky the images ?

The next one is the same as the earlier except it doesn't have the numbers going across the middle.

Ally, they're great I am using the candle one now :D

.... any chance you could do a couple for a wide screen format, unless I center it on the desktop and have a border around it I end up with it stretched/distorted. :flowers:
How did you come to that conclusion?

Luv, if you need a good shagging, I'm here for that too....or anything else for that matter.

I LOVE the green 1's and 0's. Can you get them vertically cascading, matrix style?

And, as I apply the evening oceanside to my desktop and consider the possibility of a short holiday in Australia, I'm forced by sheer selfishness to ask if you've ever considered doing complete theme packages for XP, or doing your art in screensavers as well?
