    Hey,

    I recently got linux up and running on my laptop and for the background fo my 3 virtual desktops I want to have all pictures of cities taken like... over time so that you can see the paths of the headlights and nothing else. Here's an example of what I mean (I've been looking for this toyko at night wallpaper everywhere but cant' find it)

    I already have one, set in denver so I need two more good city shots like this. Anybody know where I could get them? or even what this kind of art is called so I could look into it more?

    Jaws was asked to take down the entire landscape/cityscape collection...apparently due to some copyright issues with Webshots or something of the sort.
    It's a shame really. That was the best collection of wallpapers I have ever seen so far. Luckily, I downloaded all 275 of them a few days before they were taken down.

    Too big to send by email. I could try DCC sending it on IRC (#ntfs). Hopefully that works. ;)

    It does say somewhere on the site that the copyright is designed to hide behind the finder bar, heh :)
    You can edit it out of some of the walls though, I do when I use them on my Windows machine :D
