I thought there used to be a thread like this a long time ago on the old TRF, or maybe it was some other forum. I was fiddling around with mine a bit today, and was wondering what other's look like. The background itself is a shrunken and cropped version of July 7th's Astronomy Picture Of the Day. My screen's native resolution is 1920 x 1200, so it's been reduced a bit to fit with the image posting guidelines, and JPEG'd to get the file size down.

Anyone have an interesting looking background to share?

Unfortunately, usually like this at more or less extremes...

I'm quite the clutter pig ain't I?

You know, that bike looks *very* similar to the one the bloke I was riding with had. ;)

I have lots of NASA and APOD shots saved to my HD, and I use whatever I can crop to fit an 8x5 aspect ratio. (My screen is 1280px x 1024px.) I change my desktop pictures frequently, but I don't have the process automated. My desktop currently displays a pic that should be quite familiar to everyone by now. I had to doctor the image a little bit so that it would fill my monitor's screen, but you will hardly notice unless you look very closely at it. Like many others, I have an overabundance of icons on my desktop, some of which are redundant. They are like dandelions; whenever I weed them out, more pop up, and within a few days I am right back to where I started. :rolleyes:

This is my dual monitor desktop at work, home one is very similar:

I update mine with the last real Delta IV launch I work and the Indy 500 winner for the current year. And of course, my Delta IV model fleet in action.

Right now it's picture #1, but I'll switch it to one of the other two, or other pics from other trips when I want a change of scenery.

These three are from a backpacking trip in 2005 with my oldest son in Kings Canyon National Park.
