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.  :)

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.
Normal is something we've invented to keep out the demons and Gods and magic and monsters that live just on the other side of the "normal' world we've built for ourselves.

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)
RocketDock at the bottom using the Wooden' skin.
Icons from the perennial British Library Windows Unabridged
MSStyles file Refined Woodwork
Calendar, Weather, CLI and Clock are all Samurize scripts I've pieced together and refined for my own tastes.

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

Where'd you get those lovely icons for Linux?

The Window Manager:

http://enlightenment.org/


The theme:

http://exchange.enlightenment.org/theme/show/884

The cursor icons:

http://www.e17-stuff.org/content/show.php/Steampunk+X11+cursor+icons?content=70769

Extra wall papers from:

http://steampunkwallpaper.com/

Well ... after a LOT of work, and many questions, I finally got e17 to work!  ;D
So, I've got that theme now too!

Now I just gotta figure out how to get those icons to work :(

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,

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

Mr. Taggert the Pocket watch in the center of the gears on your desktop is the exact same one I'm wearing at this very moment :)

Here's mine:

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.

Here's the wallpaper, if anyone wants it:

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.

Yeah, I switched to it when I realized it had more relief and fit better overall.

My current desktop. :D

:


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. :D

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.
