Behold. The most boring desktop ever!

Since this is on my "secondary" computer (my old 1.4gHz T-bird and GF3 card stuffed into my even older HX45 case) which is only used for running eMule and ABC (yet Another Bittorrent Client) while I do my "real" work on the "primary" XP3000+/Radeon 9800PRO box I try to keep the fluff to a minimum. I should really post the desktop from the "primary" here, but it isn't particularly more exciting than this and I can't be arsed to turn on the noisy bastard right now. This old heap has got Firefox, FooBar and Total Annihilation installed, so what else do I really need? (All right. INF, probably...)

I'm old fashioned. I'm also too lazy to change my desktop twice a week. Besides, I like this one.

I find the number of people who have icons to all sorts of games except INF on their desktops rather bizarre :D :D

If by saying that you are implying that having an INF icon on the desktop makes you a "drooling fanboy" of Inf, then having an icon of any game makes you a "drooling fanboy" of that game which would make them "drooling fanboys" of something ;) ;)

I'm just glad my desktop has NO icons ... come to think of it maybe we'd all just better un-install ALL applications and games just in case ;) ;)

"no" "I'm" "pointing out" that "people" who "post useless posts" to "complain about" the "lack of icons" for a "certain game" are "failed abortions".

P.S ""

Just a few points you leprous lump on a diseased camels C**T (if you're gonna insult me at least do it properly...a good insult has a pace, a timing, which you just cannot seem to grasp no matter how many people you TRY and insult!)

1> Who Complained?
2> I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds it passing strange that more people posting on the Infiltration forums have Icons to other games but not Infiltration, NOT wrong, NOT sinfull just strange, some may even find it vaguely funny (hence the smilies)!
3> As for useless posts, Hi Pot...kettle here ;)
4> Your sentence was pointing nothing out as you seemed to completely miss the point of my post as usual you just quickly scoured the page for an opportunity to TRY and make it appear as if your IQ was actually higher than your age, by trying to belittle another individual (as seems to be your wont), I was actually trying to maintain a light perspective on this but as usual you try to drag it down!
5> As for certain game....well it's only the game that is the basis for this forum so yeah nothing important! :rolleyes:

I'm sure I'll probably get RO'd for this but hell I have a life, I only post here when I'm bored @ work! Now where's that ignore option!

-Mort']attempted insults

The fact that you can use that insult on me of all people and think it'll even rate on my scale of offensive **** I've had said to me is laughable. The fact that you're telling me how to insult people is even more laughable. I pity you.

Let us take a moment to reflect on your previous statement:

Hurrrrrrr needs more inf!

This has exactly what to do with what? Nothing to do with nothing is the correct answer here. You come storming in with no valid contribution other than to proudly proclaim that we need more INF icons. That's fanboy behaviour right there.

Go back to General. You'll fit in better.

just a standard stylexp thing, nothing special:

Destroy that program before it destroys you. You can get the same results by simply patching uxtheme.dll and simply managing themes as per usual. StyleXP has a habit of ****ing things up.
