I have a problem with Deskscapes. I like to switch between desktop backgrounds. Some days I will want a .dream running, and some days I just want a picture as my background.

So this is my first go with having a blog. I'll probably not be the most active user, here on, but expect my European rants to appear every now and then here, for all you Americans to flame
