    I haven't seen one of these threads in a while, so I figured what the heck.

    Here's mine.

    Okay, how do I get a picture of my desktop? Sorry if it's been asked before. Actually, I'll go search now.

    Click ALT + PRNT SCREEN to capture your desktop then paste it into an apporiate program. Save the image as a JPEG, JPG, etc then either host it or attach it ;)

    I'll try this. I opened up my "Photo Impression" program, and it turns out it has screen capture available. That's my son and daughter getting pumpkins last fall.

    Actually, my desktop and screen saver changes constantly, as the kids play with the computer all the time. My daughter Emily, who is 8, is especially good at navigating WinXP. That's my son Richard (9) on the right. He is one of those kids who can kick butt on computer games.
