Unfortunately Windows converts desktop wallpapers to JPEG which causes all kinds of artefacts on pictures with high frequency like this, so I had to go into regedit and change the desktop image destination to a PNG

Funnily enough my friend was watching this on his phone in the lab as he worked a couple of weeks ago, and I was enjoying it too! (Right after we'd decided to ban phones in the lab, mind you :mefiant:)

Somehow I didn't know that. :oops2:
Also I notice you're still using Apache OpenOffice. Out of curiosity, any reason not to have switched to LibreOffice?

No reason really, I'm not too familiar with either program so when I needed a Word alternative OpenOffice was the first thing to come to mind. I usually use Google Docs now anyway.

Of course!! Who wouldn't recognize Jean-Pierre Raffarin on the left? Also, how dare you use the likeness of the GOAT Brel for your wallpaper?

You're right, there is a thread exactly like this called "What's your desktop background?" or something like that, but this one came first.

I tried to search for "wallpaper", "background" and "desktop", but none of the results were the other thread, so I just posted in this one.

I think it was "What's your computer background?" so I can understand why you didn't find it.

I searched them all individually and it never showed up, so I guess if it's found then a mod could probably merge them.

Thanks. I think what happened is I searched for the term "background" instead of "backgrounds". :mrgreen:
