    Some very nice ones there ... I'll put them in round-robin for one of the panes, thanks :)

    Are the .jpg ones avaiable in some non-lossy format as well ? After having viewed too many of them, the artifacts really stand out, especially when used as backgrounds ...

    The link names are deceiving!

    I thought "image 1" was funny, and "image 16" cool looking.

    I'd say, bad excessive use of plug-ins.. although image 18 is nice and stylish.

    He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    I first used one of these as my wallpaper just over a year ago. After rebuilding my machine and loosing the image I have been on the hunt for them ever since. A chance find of an email in my archive has reunited me. ++silent11 (Now that I am able to vote!)

    heh. 9 years later I find these images sitting on an old linux machine I'm about to decomm. the links to the above images have been broken for the better part of the last decade.
    these desktop images will now have a permanent home at:

    While I'm not particularly fond of the images any more I had to provide the link to their new home just in case :)

      And they're as brilliant as ever, silent11! Thanks for re-hosting them, and bringing them to our attention again.
