Hear ye [H]ard|Members!

It would appear as if the "Monthly Wallpaper" idea has cought on. It's a new month and I
have some new tricks up my sleeve. Since it is winter here in the Southern Hemisphere
and I am freezing my fingers off, while some folk in Florida are having to halt their folding
due to overheating, I thought ... why don't we theme the "Monthly Wallpaper".

So those of you who feel up to it, use some seasonal theme in your wallpapers, you could
opt to go for a freezing white winter theme to cool the Northen heat, or a scorching
summer theme to heat us Lower-Earth victims up a wee bit. You could even work all four
seasons into the mix alla Antonio Vivaldi.

Participation is not mandatory to post, but all participants are entered into a "competition"
(my currency is worth peanuts, so sorry no prizes ... yet) however the winner will be
recognised in some meaningful way ... I'm thinking along the lines of a monthly
"[H]ard|Approved" desktop or some such.

Acceptable Use Policy (Please do not abuse this privelege.)
1. Post only images (or links to them) of wallpapers and/or shell enhancements.
2. Please minimise discussion about the wallpaper/mods, and strive for '1 post 1 pic'.

Have fun! ;)

UPDATED!!!! as well as the other one further down

7-18.JPG


Litestep - Simplicity
Winamp 5 - Splitfire - Minted Spring (Tho I usually use Foobar2k for music, except when gaming, I have weird lag with FB2k and gaming)
Rainmeter - A simple meter in top-left by me and Smoove (the clock top right)
Rainlendar - Rewind Green
Trillian Pro - Sapphire 3 Green (It's fricking hard finding good matching Trillian skins)
Background - distant ecosystems by netghost
PowerMenu for transparency on windows
Cursors (not pictured by the print screen) - Premium

Rainmeter/Rainlendar skins are at www.customize.org
Litestep skin is probably at www.litestep.onet
The rest at www.deviantart.com

Ok, done with this month customizing :D

Mine wasn't really seasonal, but I tried. I'll go dig around and see if I can't come up with something to use.

Rome was not built in a day ... you still have 29 days to D-Day ... so take your time
make effort toward a nice themed desktop and/or shell. ;)

^I love that second one. Got a link?

Here's something I took in Washington last year, and used this modified pic for the cover of my school's literary magazine.

Nobody is really following the seasonal thing anymore so I thought I would ruin it some more I guess...
