Honestly forgot to swap my wallpaper for September until now so I just picked some gradients to see me through to the end of next week or so.

Some Minecraft (or, indeed, Minetest, if you prefer!) fan-art showing a blocky wolf sitting at the top of a blocky mountain looking out over some blocky islands and howling at the blocky moon, this time around.

Late posting but I did remember to change my wallpaper to something "festive" for October:

Just a quick little tribute to Star Parodier.

I put it together by combining a scan of the game's key-art from the provided wiki link (with added blur/glow to counteract the harsh edges a bit - I didn't feel like spending the entire day getting rid of each stray pixel manually ), with a space background that I found online.


Here's a copy that isn't a screenshot of my desktop.

Annual "I switch my DE of choice". Can't decide between Gnome and KDE 😅

The humbling of my main Arch Linux computer continues:



The power button on my Acer X223w monitor has become physically fused, so for now I am using its little brother the Acer X193w which I had spare instead, featuring the same 16:10 aspect ratio but a smaller resolution. I will be looking for a better display, but like with potentially fixing my AMD RX 460 graphics card, it is not the burning priority it would once have been for me as long I am still doing most of my gaming on my retro computer.

It's now December 1st here in the UK, so I've moved over to my rotation of Christmas-themed video game desktop-backgrounds. This one, of course, is a Bomberman one, which I'm sure was completely unexpected.

It's an edit of an old 1024x768 image that's archived here - I brought it up to 1920x1080 by moving everyone out to the corners, reconstructing Golem Bomber's missing finger, and adding a bunch more snow. I've uploaded the version that's not a screenshot of my desktop here if anybody would like a copy.

Is this really a thing? Am I really out of this world?
I know some people do this for Christmas, Halloween etc, but I never did that... Tell me more.

Yeah, it's a thing.

There's not really a lot to tell - I just pointed Xfce at a different folder so that it cycles through those this month, haha. Not that I have very many themed backgrounds for this, but I tried to get into the spirit of the season regardless!

Also have some seasonal wallpapers:


And still on the hunt for a new monitor.
