Post your Desktop: April 2012

Noone got around to making it, so I thought I'd get around to it, as people were posting April desktops in the March Thread. Also it would be great if people explained their wallpaper, why they have it etc.

Heres are my Desktop screens, I've been playing Mass Effect 3 a lot recently, and the logo is from one of the Corporations in the game, I love it and the simplicity on the background.

Also remember to use the [TIMG] tag if you're linking the screenshot from an image uploading site.

I collect too many wallpapers Although my "Space" folder is one of the empty ones with only 85 pictures, my collection recently took a knock when I removed any picture below 1920x1080 after my new laptop.

Unfortunately the weather image part of my GeekTool script isn't working and I'm too much of a n00b to know how to fix it so it looks weird.

I'm on road-warrior mode at the moment, no 27" display for me.

I like having a rough-time clock and a precision one, allows me the option of accuracy over speed or vice versa.

Desktop is a mess, normally don't like having any folders or documents on it but school work overrides prettiness at the moment.

I would post mine, but I'm using the default OS wallpapers on all my devices now. It would be boring to post them here. I just find changing wallpapers to be an awfully painful task when you're an extremely organized person like me. Everything must be just right.
