Autumn Desktop Backgrounds

Pete Brown - 29 October 2007

My main website is pretty disjointed from my blog here, and with one exception, is rarely updated any more. I do plan to convert the main site over, prune out old stuff at somepoint, and make it as easy to update as my blog (WSS will likely be part of that solution)

Anyway, the one part of my main site that does get updated on a fairly regular basis is the wallpaper subsite. This part of my site is all driven by SQL Server, so it is pretty easy for me to do a batch conversion, upload the files and then edit the entries. By the resolutions, however, you can tell the last update to the code came before wide-format screens became the norm.

I've been working on a SIlverlight app to navigate the hundreds of desktop backgrounds I have up there. I have the wrap panel code just about completed, and I'll release that as another example assuming Microsoft doesn't beat me to the punch :)

Plug: For those of you looking for autumn desktop backgrounds, I have added some new fall wallpaper images to the Seasonal - Autumn category. While you're there, you may be interested in the programming wallpapers and some of the others. The main list is here.
