    maybe once a year... prolly less. I really dont care what is back there. If Im using the PC i have the programs window take up the whole screen. If Im not using my PC, I turn the monitor off. Hence, wallpapers are pretty useless.

    I normally have mine set up to rotate images every day or two.
    The file is made up of about 2000 images mostly weather related, scenic, astronomy . . . a lot of those are taken by my brother a professional photographer.
    I do have a file that I have been working on that is all military related images, equipment, soilders, sailers . . . and several memorials. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif That's my favorite file to use.

    Currently though I have a nice x-ray of the linux penguin on my desktop.
