Despite the awesomeness of Cassandra, I decided to switch to a more mellow, classy looking background. We'll see how long this one lasts, I tend to go through backgrounds like "tissues at a snot party."

Well the only thing that it could get in the way of is the 3 icons i
keep in the top left corner...any maybe the sidebar(but even that i can
make be gone). Everything else i keep in the dock.

Unfortunately, I don't. However, this reminds me of the time in the IT crowd where there was a small fire in the building. They put a monitor in front of it, and their boss mistook it for a screensaver Laughing

Okay, if I could convert that to 4:3 without chopping half her head off, and my parents didn't come into my room semi-regularly, I would. As it is, I will merely take a screenshot of it as my wallpaper, and then switch back Razz

Also, I think I may have got it to my monitor's full 1400x1050 this time Very Happy

She's one of the Soul Society lieutenants, isn't she? The one who goes around on the back of that Soul Society Captain.

Honestly, once Rukia was captured and scheduled for execution in the first season, my interest in the show waned something fierce because she was never in any episodes and it just became the same "chop-sockey kung fu" that Ranma 1/2 became from Season 2 on after they fired the original writing staff. So once Cartoon Network put it on hiatus to wait for new episodes, I stopped watching and never came back.

I stopped watching Bleach after it turned into DBZ powerlevel nonsense. Never saw it in English, just some fansubs back in 2005-6.
...I agree about Rukia, though.

No she isn't, but neither is she ugly. And she is also pretty cool. And in that outfit, rather sexy.

And yes, Integra Martel is also rather hawt.

I found it on the Funimation Solty Rei site. I'm on a mission to find one I saw of Accela and Solty on the DVD I have. ^_^

I think all the girls from R.U.C are pretty. My cousin, Matt likes Celica the best. (One on the left next to Accela)

Post by Robert Frazer on Tue 7 Jul 2009 - 23:21

I haven't made mention of this before now, but for literally the past year I've been using a broken computer. I don't have a desktop PC and instead use a high-end laptop for everything from spreadsheets to t3h vidya - only the screen was damaged and so I've been alternately squinting through green hazes, grey fogs, or having half of the screen's vertical scanlines be missing. Visibility was enough to get by when using Word, which was the most important thing, but as you might anticipate it was something rather wearing on the eye.

Finally, though, I've upgraded to a snazzy new model and with that I'm blessed with a bright, unblemished screen - after a year of barely being able to make out words sometimes the surge in sharpness and clarity is astonishing and delightful. In my old computer I just used a plain blank background, but I've opted to celebrate my new acquisition with an actual image now:



Booting up to soppy romance. I must be getting soft... Ah well, there's a pleasing watercolour background and the palette complements the toolbar colour too!

Anyway, the picture itself is from Otoyomegatari by Kaoru Mori - you might know her better from her series of high Victoriana, Emma (an original story - if a fairly well-worn one about love crossing class boundaries, etc. etc. etc. - and not an adaptation of the Austen novel). I'd say that her mangas are worth your attention - romances might not be to everyone's taste and they're not my usual repast either, but nonetheless she invests truly tremendous detail into her art, and she's made total authenticity and fidelity as her defining trait. For those who want it the neat image can be found here.

In the middle of a move (not that I went anywhere, just relocated a bunch of stuff within the house), and I made the decision to put my desktop within reach of my new roommates (my brother, his wife and kid)... so no more controversy or sex in my backgrounds. Sad



on the up side, I have a bunch more living space.



also, that AVP Chess pic is AWESOME

What are you talking about LoC? Those planets are obviously about to join in some form of cosmic planet space sex! Avert your eyes children!

I got a little mini laptop to mess with. First thing changed was the desktop, something fitting of my sense of reality...

If we follow this world's timeline, she'll be up in college right now--Haruhi, I mean.

Desktop backgrounds...huh? I commonly use DeMots for the most part. Can't upload it here for some reason...says I need to log in or something.
