This is an image I found in the Blue Sun Room that was almost the exact right size proportions for my desktop and I fell madly in love with it. It's been my desktop for awhile now, despite the fact that I have a folder with over 200 desktop images I could use, some of which I worked very hard at making the proper size...

Hmm, can't find it any more, but I use an old Banzai Institute for Biomedical Engineering and Strategic Information logo. Orange letters to the left, Grey roundel to the right, black background.

I used to use the DVD cover, but you couldn't find the icons, and Penny's legs were a distraction...

That's an impressive arrangement of all the movie wallpapers; very nice! Not exactly how I would have set it up, since it looks almost like Zoe is pointing her gun at Kaylee and River looks about ready to slice Mal's legs of, but the blending is quite beautiful. I would love to see the image by itself
You know, it alays bothered me that Zoe didn't have her own wallpaper like that. We have Mal and Kaylee and Jayne and Wash and Simon and River, but no Zoe in her very own wallpaper. Don't seem right.

I use the free "Windows XP Creativity Fun Pack PowerToys Wallpaper Changer" from Microsoft which will automatically rotate between my wallpapers every so often. You set the amount of time. I have about 60 wallpapers for Firefly, Farscape, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Buffy, Star Trek, Battlestar, etc.

If you're interested in the software you should be able to download it from here...

I have several Firefly wallpapers but I think this one in my favorite...



You can download the full size version of this from my techie blog...

This is my current one. A friend i know is producing a galaxy picture of his own, and its just so fantastic, especially since it makes a great backdrop:



Oh, the other one i use is, of course, our BDH's from the pilot.

Oh, and before you ask: the second bar is the Lotus Smart Suite that i never used. My dear step mother uses it, but i never touch it since it was installed.

That, and ...er... i have no idea how to get it back to the top of the screen

EDIT: oh, and i see someone's been visiting the SFX site. Tis a brilliant Sci Fi mag for us British folk.

Remember: When introducing Zoe to your shiny new ship, pay attention to where she's pointing when she says "What is that?" That's where you're going to be laying, bleeding someday.

Mine's kinda lame. And it's not Firefly related. I have no icons and hide the task bar, so all I see on my screen is a picture of me and this one guy... hee... it's like my monitor is just one big picture frame...

I'm crappy at figuring out how to do this kind of thing--tried to do something similar on another site the other day and it didn't work out, so I'm not even gonna try.

Anyhoo, here's the pic that's my desktop background until approximately a week from Monday, when I'll be changing it to hopefully the next Season 8 cover.
