Mine is always a photo taken from a vacation or the other...Currently it is a Grenada beach, which I cannot put up here because the system says it is too large a file...

That's a great photograph. I can see why you would use it.

(Had I known it was going to be a multi-step process to get the right size, I wouldn't have bothered you. Sorry about that!)

No worriesSmile

I like taking pictures wherever I go. They make great wallpapers, reminds you there are other places in the world where you don't have to worry about work, traffic...

A photo of my beach towel on the sand, facing the sea in Sardinia. I can't seem to load it because it's not a link. Gorgeous sunny memory...

From a pure technical point of view, I heard that the screen savers are not really good
for the screens. It is better to let the monitor go to sleep mode during extended periods
of activity.
