    TragicWhiteKnight: That's right, Uri, using the power of telepathy and an extremely obvious header, I've already asked the question without even typing anything in this message.

    So, what's behind your browser right now?

    I've stuck with the back-cover of the 1970s LP "Mohammed Ali vs. Tooth Decay", but its acid-trip imagery is starting to wear off...

    7x6andchg: Um, call me your stereotypical hetero male with a sports fanaticism bent....but...it's football season this week, so my Green Bay Packers are on my wallpaper.

    However, I change it about as often as I change my avatar, so... :D  One never knows what's next.

    So what's Granny saying on your desktop, gig?

    "No, Mr. Bond! I expect you to die!"?

    gigantikok: :D

    Actually, Pecker, I have no clue what she is saying. But for some reason, I LOVE that picture! lol

    Hey, if anyone speaks Japanese (or whatever language that may be), a translation would be really neat!

    7x6andchg: That is Japanese, but I don't speak it...but I can tell you from my limited exposure that that's what it is.

    I believe the other is Portugese...

    gigantikok: From my knowledge of Spanish... if "perigo" is anywhere near "peligro"...

    (Si, yo puedo hablar Espanol)

    ...I would guess it says "Danger! It's an armadillo!"

    I just love the quirky nature of the picture. What's so dangerous about an armadillo? :D

    7x6andchg: Nothing unless you're an ant.

    I've had the following recently:

    my cats
    my house
    a stylized 1940's postcard type map of Wisconsin (one with the cheese/beer, etc., drawn on it to characterize just what we do here)
    one of those tree frogs
    a picture of Mom
    the engrish.com picture of erection deck

    Thanks, man.

    The first one is an object from that book. A 13-hour-clock... a 13-hour-clock in Hell, at that. The events at hand take place in 13 segments.
    The second one is simply an omega symbol and an alpha symbol overlapped. Omega's Alpha = End's Beginning = The Beginning of the End.
    The third is a bit more complex, obviously. It's the last stage of the much larger-scale prophecy that Prophecy Nocturne was a part of. The Prophecy of Six. The cross-and-pentagram is used as a symbol of Balance, but the hexagram symbolizes that the demons have the upperhand. Balance is skewed. (It's also how the hexagram came to be the symbol of summoning, according to the trilogy.) The 7 is because, throughout the story, there's talk of "a seventh."

    Longhornjok: I'm with 7by6etc this week... I have a great shot of a Trojan defender tagging an Auburn player with a hit so hard his helmet popped off. Prior to that, I had wallpaper from "American McGee's Alice" video game.
