What's the desktop on your computer look like. Here's mine. Slick's desktop. (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y146/slicker1138/Old%20Pics/MyDesktop.jpg)

If you don't know how to do it it's easy. Find the "print screen" button on the keyboard and press it, then go to accessories and click on paint, go to edit, then scroll down to paste and click on it. There ya go.

That ghost rider bike does look sweet! I'm sure Ghost Rider himself will look awesome too, but like you guys I have my doubts about the flick. ...could be another Man-Thing in the making...

I have two desktops right now. The first one is my home one, the second is at work. I made the work one with a couple figures, a scanner, and windows paint. Pretty lame, but people at work get a kick out of it for some reason!

my screen is a 19" TFT and I just reset the res to 1280 x 1024 tinkered around with the sizes of the fonts and so on. 1152 looked nicer but 1280 gives me more room to manouvre especially in graphics editing which is one of my major interests. gets to be a real pain toggling pallettes so make workspace bigger and get to leave the pallettes open. course now i really do have to work with my glasses on full time. I've taken to not using a wallpaper too. just a blank black screen. may not be terribly interesting but it's less distracting when i'm trying to figure out what the hell I'm supposed to be doing. I used to look at the screen and then be distracted in a hunt for different wallpaper.

wish I did have a widescreen monitor though. or two. or three. that would rock. In fact a cluster of monitors would rock. a bunch of drives and a server. mmmmmm tasty.....

darthvyn
11-10-2005, 09:35 AM
1152 looked nicer? i would think the highest res available would be the native resolution, and anything under that would look a bit grainy. that's how mine reacts - i'm running 1280/1024 on my 19" samsung, and it's the best resolution. i checked out 1152/864, (turns out it's available on my monitor as a choice, too...) and it just looked weird...

wow. superman looks like a real dork. i'm sorry, but that doesn't look like superman at all. and the chest symbol is too small.

Jargo
11-10-2005, 12:22 PM
i read an article about that, the reinvention of the image. darker red, chunkier boots, bigger codpiece vs smaller one, and making the symbol smaller. I think the idea is supposed to be that we all know he's superman and therefore a less distracting symbol means you can concentrate on his face rather than his chest.
There again, superman is a dork. he just has a lot of powers and a high sense of morality. I mean he's the son of a scientist, how could he not be a dork :)

I'm more bothered about Kevin Spacey being another camp Lex Luthor. There again lex does have an unnatural fascination with supes..... not implying anything but y'know...?

regarding the 1152 res, it was how it was set up as default. took me ages fiddling around to get it to look right at 1280. very odd. could just have been outdated display drivers. I'm not normally a computer savvy person though. I just had a mad moment and tried to fix things up. just added a theme to the pc too. energy blue, makes the menu bars look all shiney like windows media player ten series. subtle but shiney. shame it only comes in blue though. would have preferred grey/silver. best part is it's totally bug free. I know coz made someone else check it out on their puter first teehee :)

so, then everyone is gonna know he's clark...

is it supposed to be camp? i think spacey could do an excellent job if it were done with realism. i'm getting more and more dissappointed by this movie every time i come into this threads about desktop images!

and on that topic...

interesting. what operating system are you using? in winXP, the "silver" theme looks very nice. i don't like the default blue one or the olive green one... but the silver is hot.

Jargo
11-10-2005, 05:01 PM
I always saw lex luthor as being slightly insane rather than the camp version Gene hackman gave us. And knowing how camp Spacey can come across it just worries me.
Supes and Clark, well the citizens of Metropolis seem to be really dumb in that they never put 2 and 2 together. but we as the viewer are supposed to know the secret. Personally i've always felt that simply changing a hairstyle and taking off or putting on a pair of glasses is a pretty lame disguise anyway. I've often wondered why Supes never wore a mask or at least an eye mask.

Win XP silver does look good but this energy blue takes the windows theme up a notch and makes it shiny like smooth plastic. let me take a screen cap of a bit of it....

Top one is regular xp and the bottom one is the tweaked shinier theme.

JetsAndHeels
11-10-2005, 10:31 PM
Well, not to get too far off topic, but I cannot wait for the movie (230 days lol). I am unsure of Brandon Routh as Supes, but I can remember when Singer cast a then rather unknown named Hugh Jackman for the role of Wolverine in his X men films. Plus Singer is a Superman fan so I am just going to trust him on it. It could be in worse hands as far as I am concerned.
But staying on topic, uh, yeah, that is my desktop and uh, it sure looks nice and all. :D

The right image I've been using since I created it almost a year ago. The left image (FFX-2) I'm going to be replacing soon. I'm making a Stormtrooper/Clone Trooper wallpaper that should be completed soon. Both monitors are set at 1024x768.
