The lost post

This post originally started out as a “week in reverse” post back in July, but it was around the time that our FTP server was on the fritz, so it never got finished. I got curious today and discovered  that all of the links are working now.  So, enjoy some fine Hack-A-Day wallpaper.

    A couple of those wallpapers are sweet, though none of them compare with the first one on the first week in reverse.

    I am INSULTED… you didn’t post the wallpaper I sent to you guys

    I like the badspy one but it is too small to use. Without scaling it up it would only cover 1/4th of my desktop and stuff scaled that much often isn’t pretty.

    Matt: That wallpaper is badass, one of the best up there if not the best…. maybe too ‘busy’ for my taste, but its definately nice.


  9. gumnos says:

    I second tired2’s thoughts on Matt’s wallpaper…great work/art, though a bit busy for everyday viewing.

    So if I set one of these as my backdrop I’ll become a “hacker”?

    You guy’s do know that when you click the picture a bigger version comes up? that might help to fit someone’s desktop.

    Slightly bothered that you guys compressed my pic until it looked like poo. I submitted a 160Kb gif. Yes, a gif. You posted a jpeg that is half the size and absolutely shredded. My email address has become completly unreadable, besides all the other details that have changed.

    Will the extra 80Kb really break your servers?

    (And don’t say that gifs are junk because of reduced palette or even the software patents issue. They are very useful for greyscale artwork. Or bluescale, in my case.)

    I am bothered by the fact you go to this website, don’t have a place to host your images, and then complain when your image gets hosted for free.

    I want to offer my version of a hack a day wall paper…
