    Mine's a field. Just a field with some nettles in the foreground.

    Anyone else got anything more interesting?

    Insert screenshots as necessary :smile:

    A larger version of this. Not my photo, but it's the famous Sint Maarten 'runway beach' in the Caribbean.

    On my computer, it's one of the Windows 7 standard ones (the one with the giant turtle); can't be bothered to change it as I barely see my desktop anyway, there's usually at least a browser open maximized. The background on my homepage Google however is a wolf, and has been for about a month now. There's a reason for it.

    On my phone, a rather fuller version of my avatar here (i.e. with body), which I drew myself using Inkscape, and guttingly was lost when my old laptop died.

    That appears to be the opening frame of the titles of The X Factor, no?

    Your resolution seems almost square although I'm guessing it's 1280x1024 from the picture. Perhaps I'm too used to having widescreen monitors :lol:
