Free Desktop Wallpaper

I have the best clients (and readers) in the world.  Most designers have to pull teeth to get paid in a timely fashion.  My clients often call me up saying. "Have you billed us yet?  We want to get you paid!"  Ah, what great people!  So, I'm going to start trying to give a little back.  Eventually, I'd like to make these freebies more like prizes (with monetary value and everything).  For now, I will just make it something that anyone can get.  I've made an image that you can apply as the wallpaper of your desktop.  Feel free to take the image and run, but if you'd like to hear about it, I'll tell you the story behind the image.

P.S.  I'm also trying out a new commenting feature.  Let me know what you think/if it works on your browser.
