Desktop Wallpaper

Kevin Painchaud has submitted desktop wallpaper for the site in two sizes. I am so impressed with the work he put into it that I have decided to host them myself and make them available to everyone. Here is a reduced preview version, but you really need to download one of the full size versions to really appreciate the detail.


[800×600] or [1024×768]

To download the wallpaper, chose your size from the two links below the picture, right click and select Save Target As.
