I seriously don't see how on earth people can deal with having a ton of icons on their desktop.

My desktop work machine (Motoko) is using this image at the moment.... yes its a gnome death knight - fear with fear. (courtesy ThreePanelSoul webcomic site).


that wallpaper changes every few days or so.

My game machine is named Etona on my network ... she almost always has some imagery related to the character Etona from Disgaea on her wallpaper. No I wasn't fond of the series -- just her and her undead penguins. Her figurine sits atop the game machine as well. Here's a pic of the machine, its wallpaper, and her.

Is that the Skeleton PC Case? How does it do? Is it worth getting?

Too lazy to grab a screencap from my laptop at the moment.

Edit: And also, no offense, but I have to admit I have trouble understanding the urge to change wallpaper every few days.

hey, at least there's a case now.... there have been times when it was just a bunch of cards and wiring strewn across the table --- this case was *almost* perfect for my tinkering needs. (see below)

No offense taken.... I just get bored with it every so often. I used to even run a wallpaper rotator but selecting one is kind of personal "mood of the day" moment. A gnome death knight amuses me... usually its pics of whatever my favorite anime is at the moment.

1) Yes, its the Antec Skeleton.
2) For my purposes, it works fine - very easy to add and subtract hardware on a whim. It has a minor flaw and a major flaw:
2a) minor flaw: cabling can be a bit obnoxious unless you have a modular cable power supply and and a bit longer than average SATA cables.
2b) major flaw: it lacks headroom for some of the steroid monster CPU heat sinks. If your heatsink is taller than a video card, it won't fit. Limitation on heatsink diameter depends on the crap on the mobo. If you really MUST overclock significantly - you might look into liquid cooling.
3) No, its total overkill and pricey in the froufrou doodad department . Really its got a ridiculous price tag.
But I like it because its damned quiet with that huge fan, its ultra easy to modify (which I tend to do a lot) and it actually collects far less dust than a standard case. Plus I just think it looks like a piece of art....

All I'll say is that your wife is more understanding than my mom. Although my desk tends to get a fair bit of clutter regardless.

Also, I ran into one guy on my commuter train today that was carrying a fairly tricked out looking midtower - with no side panels on it. I couldn't help but think of this thread.

Turns out I had a copy of my laptop wallpaper on this computer anyway, so I'll just post that. Only difference is that my laptop uses a 1280X800 version. And yeah, I do have some icons, but they're typical Windows XP stuff you've seen a million times before:

Thanks
Lil anime characters? Are you talking about the rainmeter? If so, that's just an application you download and you can either d/l or create skins for it.

My office is pretty much under my control; her den is pretty much under her control; the rest of the house is under joint design/maintenance treaty

Almost any wallpaper with Horo on it is an automatic win, of course.
