    My desktop pic that I've used for years. I made a whole custom theme using Beavis & Butthead, heheheheh heh heh. :D The "CD" on Beavis's T-shirt corresponds to my bro's initials, he used to fix audio equipment for a living, hence: CD AUDIO. I shrank the picture to fit the forum better. Look at the taskbar to see what I used to capture the pic with.

    I would post my current desktop, but for some strange reason, my computer cannot copy or paste right now. Text, icons, even the image of a screenshot.. none of these things can be pasted anywhere. Whatever I try, no matter what application I use, "Paste" is always greyed out.

    Strange, no?

    I'm sure that it will probably fix itself by restarting the computer, but I have no intention of doing that anytime soon. I'll post a screenshot sometime later, I guess.

    Re:

    Yes im using two monitors, I dont think I could go back to one monitor again!


    cooler XP comes as a subprogram of PCalert 4 which was supplied with MSI KT3 ultra 2 raid mobo, and I love it, works a treat. and thanks for the comments on the desktop, I like it myself :cool:

    Re:

    I dont really kno much about dual monitor set-ups, well nothing at all really :) other than it involves using two monitors, would you be able to have one playing a game while the other is still on the desktop? that would be cool, but probably not eh?

    Re:

    The only time I ever saw dual monitors in action was when a friend of mine hooked up his laptop to a monitor. Windows saw both the laptop screen and the monitor as two different displays, and set it up accordingly. He enjoyed playing games full screen while keeping instant messenger running on the other display. :)

    Yeah, it was the best image I could find with those lines for my icons. It is kinda bright, I had to change some color settings so it wouldn't hurt my eyes too, 'cuz even the silver XP skin hurts my eyes.
