Thanks cwizardone - I took that shot of Banff from a mile hike to a neighboring peak last summer.

Thanks cwizardone. During my days as a developer, the user interface was always only second to bug-free code which explains my aim at constantly beautifying the desktop.

It was 'back in the day' when I was a developer, 19 years ago, but the UI thing has never left!

Even though I'm no longer fond of desktop icons those are some decent looking desktops SimonDevine. However considering the thread title and your recent migration or addition, could you post a Slackware desktop too please?

Here's my latest but soon to change rather drastically as I'm building a new killer PC

Of the three messages I've posted, the first one is my User Desktop and there is a Root Desktop with it. Both are Slackware 14.2 (64) KDE 4.14 X Desktops.

My apologies, Simon Devine. I have no idea how I missed those and my only pitiful excuse is I had yet to finish my 1st cup of Kona :P

Quite understandable when a Coffee is needed. We've all been there. No need for a sorry; just keep yourself well topped up.

Been awhile since I posted. I'm running -current with ktown. Nothing too fancy, but I thought I would show off my new desktop background, taken yesterday from a camera (actually an old cell phone) hanging underneath a large kite. This was my first attempt at kite aerial photography. I think next time I'll add more line for more altitude and maybe upgrade the camera.

Clever shot. Where is it?

More altitude? I'm not so sure. That's just the right height if you ask me.

In Maryland, USA, about 60 miles south of Washington, DC. More altitude is always a good thing if you ask me! :P

Nice, looks a little more contrasty. A lot of the shots turned out a bit blurry and with some weird artifacts on this old cellphone camera. I found a Canon Elph 160 for a good deal on Ebay and some custom firmware that will give it an intervalometer and other useful functions for kite aerial photography. I expect I should get some higher quality images out of that.
