Anyone have any good Halloween wallpapers? Strange this - if I set as desktop background from the forum image it's poor.
If I save to desktop and then open it and set as desktop it's fine.

Well if you ever get the urge I can help out. It can seem too much if you try to understand it all too quickly. A good start is just to download the latest DB and the splitter program. Run the splitter exe to make sure a screen appears and then do nothing further for a few days :)
