Nifty Way To Spruce Up Your Desktop

There are lots of differerent places to find "wallpaper" for your computer desktop.
Some of them so sickeningly sweet you can become diabetic just looking at them, and others.... well... let's just say that "Not Safe For Work" doesn't quite cover it, shall we?

But, if your tastes run towards the middle of the road, the Hubble Telescope site has a bunch of cool.... nay, AWESOME, pictures from space that you can use as wallpaper. For FREE!!!
That's right free.

And while I'm talking about free space stuff, they also have a page where you can download a bunch of seperate pictures that go together as one big mural on your wall. Also for free.*

Go ahead decorate your living room with the Carina Nebula.
Better yet, decorate your office as an homage to Star Trek with a commanding view of space using the mural.
It's actually pretty freaking cool looking:

And no, I'm not getting a kickback for this.

I just thought it was cool and wanted to share it.

* You can print the pictures up on your computer, but they recommend taking the files (and they are b-i-g files, by the way) to a place that specializes in developing black & white pictures. So depending on where you go to do that, it can average about $30 per panel.
