I really like the pin feature of Windows 7.  Granted, sometimes it fills the taskbar a bit too quickly when using non-pinned programs, but it's still quicker than going to Start>All Programs>on and on.  As far as having the taskbar on the side, that's something I only do on my laptop.  It just seems to take up too much vertical space when it's on the bottom.

If I moved to a martial arts monastery in China and studied real hard for 10 years. If my family was wiped out by Colombian drug dealers and I swore myself to revenge. If I got a fatal disease, had one year to live, devoted it to wiping out street crime. If I just dropped out and devoted my life to being bad."

Then, of course, there's always the work computer.  It kinda sucks not having admin rights...there's some stuff I'd love to delete on the desktop.

Wallpaper I made.  A DoD/USN looking screen with a little Stargate thrown in.

Me snapping some punk's neck in Halo Reach. Try and steal our flag? I don't think so.

You know what, I actually find it more interesting to see what people have on their desktops, ie links, shortcuts, icons etc than what they actually have as their backgrounds... just saying.

Agreed, whenever I see a picture of someone's desktop, I immediately hunt for something potentially embarrassing/amusing on it.

Equally, whenever I take a screencap of my own desktop, I make sure to hide all the midget por- uh, I mean... OH LOOK! AN EAGLE!

An update on the last wallpaper design.  What can I say, I like the blue.

I thought I had posted this, but I guess I didn't.  This is a great site for wallpapers/backgrounds.  http://wallbase.cc/start/
Just click random and see what comes up.
