Congrats Frank. This is a lovely wallpaper. Would be even cooler to have a transparent version that you could overlay over a desired color background. Anyone with strong enough gimp-foo to do it?

Awesome wallpaper! Good to see you're doing great things after retiring from Police Squad, Frank.

A very nice and warm wallpaper, lots of heart in it! Crossed my mind that a GOL t-shirt / hoodie would be awesome.. I'd buy several just for support.

well since the contest is over, here are some BG's templates I found.
If someone has free time can create something creative for GOL.

I’m not surprised this is the winner; it is simple but beautiful and fits perfectly as a desktop background. (I like that it’s dark, personally.) I have downloaded it (and a couple others!) to use as a random wallpaper on my computer .

Would have been my choice as well, congrats Frank!

I did make it deep blue instead of orange (that's what I'm used to), blurred the grain a bit and slightly resized the icons layer, thanks for the xcf source! I have to admit I also removed the text, as I found it distracting. I don't need reminders, it's not like I'd forget my favourite corner of the intertubes in a hurry.
