Ideas and wining



I tried to make my wallpapers simple as i think this is important when
using the desktop and makes it easy to see files etc.
As i joined at a later stage it would be handy for me to have an
overview on the decisions which have been made for example i am unsure
if the gears theme is definate or can a try to come up with new ideas.
I started an idea wich i couldnt get to work visualy well ,using 2
gears and a belt to create the infinity effect.....maybe someone could
use this better. Thanx
