    Desktop Wallpaper
    Nothing major but I didn't like mine so I went looking for some new stuff. My first computer I downloaded a lot plus screensavers, probably how I picked up a lot of nasties.

    But this one is nice:

    Looks clean, no pop ups, great stuff, can't figure out which one I want. Anybody know some other good clean ones?

    I always get mine from Away.com.

    But be warned, you have to give 'em an email addy to sign up--and they will sell the addy to the spammers (there's a long delay before it starts, so it's not quite so obvious). So, use a different email just for them.

    They do have beautiful travel-related pics, though. Nature scenes, towns/cities from mostly exotic places, and landmarks that most people in the US probably haven't seen, etc. I prefer the tropical paradises and forests, but there's something for everyone.

    I use that old Windows Classic blue, no wallpaper for me. I have too many things on my desktop and wallpaper just makes it noisy.

    I have a sattellite shot of the plot of land I am building a house on. Got it from the Oklahoma County website with all of the property lines outlined. Pretty sweet.

    I can say exactly the same thing, and also add..........

    Who will be the one looking at the Desktop Wallpaper anyway?

    I only look at my Desktop when I boot the computer up or down, and when I am looking thru all the junk I got there for one Shortcut link.

    The last time I had a nice looking ( ) Desktop Wallpaper there, I wasted too much time a day looking at that Wallpaper.

    I typically use photos that I have taken. I like to have a large section of sky or water - in order to have a place to gather all of my desktop "mess."

    This caught my attention because I'm working on a wallpaper/screensaver site, what do you generally look for? Scenics? Cats? Cars? Flowers? of course, clean screensaver downloads and a zillion different sizes and formats
