    How do APUGgers feel about me putting their gallery images on my desktop at work? I visit APUG especially the gallery section first thing in the morning before the main throng of workers are in and have developed a habit of saving my current favourite picture as my background so I can ponder on it during day.

    This habit has caused a mini forum to develop and I now have people 'popping over' to see the image of the day. This is great to get a cross section of opinions and is causing a resurgence of interest in Photography in the department especially B&W. Four people have bought SLR's in the last 3 months purely because of this.

    If this offends anyone i will stop the process

    Okay by me. I've always figured that when I upload a pic to the web I've given tacit approval to non-commercial use.

    Does anybody really *want* a goat skull screensaver or wallpaper, tho'?

    No problems here, Although the video stores get 4.00$ a day for rental! Their might be a new business here.
