Some wallpaper of a skull I think is nice.

The wallpaper itself.

Re: The Post Your Desktop Thread
I LIKE big resolutions

left one has a 21" sony multiscan G500 and right one 19" compaq s920, both CRT.
I like to keep the desktop icon-free, they are located in the start menu bar instead (Työpöytä = desktop).
And to a huge suprise, I still have IRC in fullscreen on the second monitor.

btw, are there any programs that you can use to apply different wallpapers to each monitor ? I know that I could use the span system but I hate when stuff maximize to the whole area rather than one screen.

If you have an nVidia card they have some utility in it's control panel so that Windows will maximize to either 1 or both monitors (whether by default or double clicking an extra button) - I think it was called keystone or something... it worked great for me in earlier drivers but latest its tad slow.

Don't know if their registration is $ or not (they say their 'free section' is 50% quality).. still searching....

Might be some here... and apparently a set of 1600 x 1200 here (that Gamewallpapers illlegaly charges you for).

*EDIT* Here: http://www.gamersgallery.com/gallery...cat/2905/page/ probably bigger size in that 1600 x 1200 link though.

Ultramon is a good for that, albeit rather pricey. It also supports separate screensavers on each monitor, and individual taskbars for each monitor (which could also be done with this freebie).

I don't get it - which is why I never liked Python, just don't "get" or think Brit humor is funny. But sometimes you're an exception 'round these here parts

Steve's right, and Phait, you've just made me feel very old -- surely people remember Tom Cruise back when he was good, i.e. before he became a Psycho-tologist

There's an annoying lack of 1920x1200 wallpapers online, especially anime-related ones... however, I have managed to rig up a Space Battleship Yamato bootskin for WinXP, which stretches out just right onto my 16:10 monitor. Fortunately MS Paint can do kanji

Another one! I'm thinking of setting up a poll to find out how many of you have a dual monitor setup. The options would be "Yes, I'm a total geek with two monitors and more money than sense!" and "No, I'm sensible and only have one monitor, like all decent law-abiding people!"

Damn American economics -- I paid more than that for a single 16:10 24" monitor, and that was second-hand!

Er... about $900 -- which gives you an idea of how much we pay per pixel! But it is 1920x1200, which is nice

A more useful poll might be what ratio screen people have -- I've got 16:10 and Phait seems to have 32:10 , but how about everyone else? Remember that 1280x1024 is technically 5:4, not 4:3. I imagine an increasing shift to widescreen, be it 16:10, 16:9, 8:3 (two normal monitors side-by-side) or whatever... how hard is it to find decent wallpapers for all these different ratios?

Dual-screen walls:

http://www.mandolux.com has some great ones but the archive isn't thumbnailed

Also big list of DM sites here:
http://www.wallpaperreview.com/dualmonitor.html

I created a thread on it I'm certain but I dunno where it is (maybe nuked with old GM)

But yeah they're not that easy to come by. The best idea is to find an image that is as wide as, or wider than your sum width - which for me is minimum 3000px, or 2500px if I want to stretch it.

Don't forget quad-monitor wallpapers http://www.quadmonitorbackgrounds.com/
