    This thread has gone way too long without an update. Here is my updated desktop. Two icon sets are used and merged, Crystal Diamond and nuoveXT Black. Photo was taken on the balcony of the Miyako Hotel in Japantown, San Francisco, during last months IDF.

    LOL

    On the other machine, I created a fold called ICONS, and drag and drop most ot the shortcuts to that, to clean up the desktop.
    SO when I want to use one, I open the ICON fold ( on desktop ) and use that to launch the program.

    No, actually I found it on http://www.thesamba.com/vw/
    There's a pretty interesting story behind the pic. The original owner drove the car(1950 VW) across the ice to the island its pictured on where the car broke down. Years later someone discovered it and made a raft to put the car on and towed it behind his motor boat back to the mainland.

    Well, there seems to be over tones mixed with a subtle mixture ( in a dark way ) with deep desires.

    By the way, have you finish COD4 modern warfare?

    You guys have great desktops. Merlin, I love that wallpaper, it's great! Here's my latest... which hasn't changed much since last time. The icon applications themselves never usually move, but once in a blue moon I go out and see if I can find new graphics to use. I like my latest "Home" icon though... looks just like the Dell I plan to pick up soon.

    Hi, I'm new to the forum.
    I've been monitoring this thread and was wondering what program is best for themes in Windows XP? I tried LiteStep and didn't really like it, then I tried uxthemes and that was a bit weird because it seemed to stuff up certain things on my comp.
    What do all you guys use?

    I'll post a pic of my desktop tomorrow aswell probably.

    :D
