    What do your desktops ... backgrounds ... screen savers ... look like ?

    Just a thought ... questions even !

    DESKTOPS

    My desktops tend to be very cluttered ... I leave icons lying around representing the folders of projects I am working on ... a bit like my messy desk ... messy briefcase ... messy mind Laughing

    What's your's like ?

    BACKGROUNDS

    I have a scene from a two street village we discovered when in the UK ... we walked down a grassy, hendge enclosed backlane between the two streets and I shot a picture, frame by the overhang across a nearby main road and (unfortunately) more modern housing encroaching up the valley:

    SCREENSAVERS

    At one stage I had B&O pictures on my desktop background ... and even made up a screensaver collection.

    But at other times I had a Fine Art (and I do mean FINE art, i.e. not cheesecake) collection.

    But on the BV8 screensaver I have over a thousand images of the English countryside ... what do you use ?

    (and on my work PC it is a picture of the fabric selector)

    First B&O (1976) was a Beogram 1500 ... latest (2011) change has been to couple the BL11 with the BL6Ks *sounds superb*

    No other posters, so here goes.

    A photograph of my own; technical stuff for the technically-minded.

    About the normal amount of icons on the desktop, here. (A LOT cleaner than any of my real desktops!)

    Anyone fancy to try to guess what the thing in the picture is? Devil

    Here are my iPod images, the lock screen holds a picture of BeoLab 5000s and if you look closely through all of the apps, you will see a tonearm from a BeoGram 1202.

    Here is my laptop background, a shot of my beloved blue steed! This is about as good as Ohio gets as far as scenery Laughing

    My background has seen many B&O images as well! I have a huge file full of B&O images that used to act as a screensaver but I turned that off and I have no memory of why...

    I prefer not to have a photo in the background, so this is what my desktop looks like.

    Do you have the black & white of a Scandenavian blonde in a mini-skirt resting on an antique carved wooden daybed ?

    I used to have it (that PC died) and loved the juxtaposition of the old and the new :-)

    Absolutely nothing to do with B&O but it does relate to analog video. This is about the most beautiful piece of engineering I have ever seen, perfectly planned-out structure and everything completely marked (blue/red boards and row numbers to show where to put any of the cards) and indicated.

    And there is more... there are two columns of boards! Every board has two metal forks that are used to pull the board out.

    Thank you Søren. This picture was taken this year, I think in the very early spring. Tomorrow I will be in the same area and will try to recreate the pic with summer foliage!

    I have also been challenged by a friend of mine - BeoWorlder even - to find even better looking Ohio scenery to place behind my car. Right then, time to start scouting for covered bridges and whatnot! Laughing

    One of the things I mis a lot here in Mex. is the changing of seasons, here there is nearly no difference, and I really enjoy the Danish spring and autum, beautiful colors all around, so yes Evan show me a real Ohio summer pic, and let me get a little sentimental Laughing, just shipped my youngest to Denmark for University study.

    It's not that I hate the look of Beolab 5's. I think they only work well in large rooms, because of their big visual impact. Unfortunately my living room is not that big. I love old Porsches, though.

    Re: What do your desktops ... backgrounds ... screen savers ... look like ?

    So I have just bought myself a new laptop and have been trying to come up with a background. And what do I think of next? I thought of this thread, and how I haven't fulfilled my promise of a proper summer pic to Soren.

    Today's challenge? - Get that pic!!!

    Time to go get the driving gloves, I've got work to do.

    I know Soren, but while I'm out I'll be snapping some of the Blue Steed Cool Plus, I'm also in this for the driving!

    I bought the Samsung RV520-W01. I previously used a Toshiba, L25-S119. The Tosh is going on 6 years now and its time to change comps before the old one breaks and causes me some gigantic problem when in school. My Tosh has been nothing less than perfect in terms of reliability.
