The 640x480 limit has been in the rules for over a year. Even then, use your judgment; make it smaller than 640px if at all possible. Either shrink your image down to 640x480 or put it in spoilers. This isn't rocket science.
Might I add that it would be a good idea to update the title of the thread so that people will know to look in the first post to see the rules update. If they are like me; they read the first post and look for rules but only do that when they first start to post in the thread. Now that your 'announcement' is on another page, people are not going to see it. With no noticeable clue to direct people to the first thread, no one is going to visit the first page and read the rule update. People are going to get pissed (I would) when they start getting infractions when there was an update to the rules and no one told them. You seriously can't expect everyone to read every page every time they visit they thread.

I am a fan of Leo Laporte's TWiT network (twit.tv), so this explains my Windows XP desktop's background

It's either geektool or rainlendar.

I decided to give rainmeter another try. Not sure if I'll keep it.

Yeh, as Zet said, it is called Geektool. It uses Python scripts and such.

Your Omnimos are misaligned :(

I always thought Omnimo was cool, but I could never get myself to use it. So I just went spelunking on customize.org to take bits and pieces that I liked off skin packs.

I decided to look into something else in my latest desktop wallpaper.

Anyone here remember the Looney Tunes cartoons? Such classics they were.

This wallpaper shows one of the biggest love affairs from the series - Pepe Le Pew & Penelope.

Spoiler:


I loved Looney Tunes cos it's funny.

Here's a nice Assassin's Creed themed desktop for you. Pre-shrunk*. I was using my old Batman theme, but I figured it was time for some variation. :D

When I was building my computer I looked at the processor and though that it might make a cool wallpaper, I was not disappointed.

I recently changed my desktop's theme and wallpaper so why not post it here?


The original artwork my signature is based on.

I have a themed dark blue GNOME desktop with Compiz... I think it looks spiffy.
(Click them for full sizes)




I also have many Virtual Machines on this thing with different desktops...
You can see them here:
Spoiler:
My Database virtual machine:


My generic Windows XP virtual machine:


My Server virtual machine:


I have others, but these are the most used ones currently. I can post the others if people want to see them though.

This ones mine! I have a second desktop courtesy of Windows XP mode thanks to to the features of the professional edition, but I use that one a little less frequent. the laptop itself is an HP G62 and though you can't see it, I do use BatteryBar for watching how much power I got left when off the plug.
