They look really good but you should stick them behind spoiler tags.

Sorry, I'm unfamiliar with the spoiler tag. I'm not quite sure at this time why it's necessary. Maybe you could let me know.  Smiley

It basically hides it until someone clicks the tag so that it makes the posts more readable and can reduce loading times for people with slower connections.

Still a Work in Progress, But I'm generally happy with it for the moment.

Base wallpaper was from a TOR.com wallpaper download that I then cleaned up.  (No longer available for download)

Ya know I get asked that a lot..lol
It actually came about as a joke between me and a buddy. There was this really bad movie called Getting Even and the main chars name is Tag Tagger I miss heard it and thought it was Taggert. So lo and behold my forum name i use most often is actually due to my shoddy hearing...lol

Ok, so a while back someone posted a DeviantArt link so some icons for Mac, and a couple of people told how to unpack them, but the methods for unpacking were windows only. I'd really like to use these, can someone help me out? I sure I'm being completely daft, and have missed something incredibly simple. Be that as it may, I am still learning the ways of these Ætherwebs.

Warmest Regards,
J.

Here's some walls for the Apple iPod Touch. Didn't know where else this would go. Just in case anyone was interested and owned one of those. I don't own one personally.

There's 21 in all. Zip file is approximately 5 megs.

Link for screenshot and file to deviantArt: http://inception8.deviantart.com/art/Steampunk-theme-iPod-Touch-106152385

Here's mine. I found the wallpaper online, tweaked it, turned it green, etc. The XP theme is Zune by MS. The cursor is from Stardock.

I use the same cursor theme from Stardock, it's the best one I've found and seeing those little gears whirling away makes me happy.

Stardock's Cursor XP? May I have the name of the theme/cursor? - Edit nevermind, found it.

I Like the gray version of the wallpaper.

My current desktop. Cheesy

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I've looked through all of the pages here, I noticed that my rocketdock skin has made by someone here. Bravo! I found it a while ago when i first discovered rocketdock and thought that the other skins were boring. The rocketdock icons are various sets found on deviantART. I thought highlighting Steam would be appropriate. Cheesy

The wallpaper. :B
I made it.

It needs to be updated though, I need to replace the "=" with an "@" . Oh well, it's on the long list of things to do when I get my laptop back.
