    That's great!
    Now we just have to re-equip Moonbear's kitty with a raygun in place of the sniper rifle and insert it. It's a new movie in the offing: "Fur Wars". :biggrin:

    I use a version of this picture (scaled to just the right size for my monitor), which I took during my first trip to Europe, while I was a college student.

    I use an SDSS image of M51, since interacting galaxies of that type are my research specialty.

    I almost never see my background; either PF, Google, or Adventure Quest (or sometimes all of them) is always up and running full screen. I just open new windows over top of them to access other functions. It is, however, the pretty purplish color spray (sort of like a nebula crossed with the Northern Lights) that comes with Tiger. My screen-saver is also a Tiger inclusion: shifting space scenes.

    I've had the same background for several months; I don't remember when I changed it to the current one, but I couldn't even tell you what it is without minimizing.
    It's one of the default Windows pictures of an up close picture of a leaf.
