    About Wallpaper

    Well, I am using WinXP SP1. I have a ton of wallpapers. Is there any programs that gonna change wallpapers automatically ( randomly) for specific time intervals?? (For example, today is one photo and tomorrow another one when I open my computer.) I am quite bored of changing manually.

    Webshots is one.

    Of course you could always:
    1) Put all the images in one folder
    2) use the copy command to copy one of the images to another name. The second file will be the one the background is set to
    3) Write a program that randomily selects one of the files and uses the copy command to copy it over to the preset image name

    Its hackish but its fun to do it yourself

    yeah man, you should've just googled...but yeah

    I personally like dark backgrounds, I'm also partial to black/blue/grey tones. It's just easier on the eyes.

    IMO, mine's easy on the eyes.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
