I am not affiliated with Sega or Three Rings. That said, my new monitor 2 desktop image is a shameless plug for my favorite game so far this year (I haven't bought portal 2 yet, though).

It might be of interest to mention that I use Wallmaster to set a different wallpaper per-monitor in Win7.

You know, if that photograph were panned right about 120 degrees, I could see the building I'm sitting in right now. Which must mean that I'm working in a miniature set. Which must mean I'm miniature! I feel like I'm in a Twilight Zone episode.

Anyway, my current background on my laptop is:
