An American Sherman tank lurks in the cover of old broken trees and wreckage with it’s turret trained to the left. In the distance the German Panzer burns from the Sherman’s last shell that blew through it’s armour and […]

The Fighting Temeraire

The Fighting Temeraire is an iconic 1838 oil painting by the famous artist J Turner, showing the last of the old sail-powered men-of-war being towed to the breakers by a paddle steamer. The imagery is stunning: the last of the old era being towed to her end by the herald of the new age. The […]

The Black hole

We venture back into deep space with today’s wallpaper. This is a stunning artists’ concept of a large black hole and the region around it. The great luminous disk is called the accretion disc, and is formed from all the matter that is in the process of falling into the black hole. It’s spinning because […]

We continue our space adventure with this rather glorious artists’ concept of a future warp-drive starship built by Earth. Since it’s a proposed future starship with a warp drive, of course it bears the name Enterprise. This design was originally created by NASA and is supposed to be capable (if we ever actually build the […]

Earthrise

Our space odyssey continues with this iconic image from NASA’s Apollo 8 mission, the first manned spaceflight around the Moon.

M87

We return to a space theme with today’s wallpaper, which is an image taken by the famous Hubble Space Telescope of the distant active galaxy M87. An active galaxy is one with a core that is much brighter than we would expect, and it thought to be caused by a supermassive black hole at the […]

Solving Problems

We return to our quotes theme with one from the legendary crazy-haired physicist, Albert Einstein. Not only a great scientists responsible for ground-breaking work, he also had a mean way with words. Just don’t start looking at his relationship with his cousin, it’s just a little bit weird.. This great and thought-provoking quote makes a […]

Democracy

Time to take a break from serious quotes. This time we have an amusing cartoon explaining the nature of democracy and liberty. The question is, which are you? A wolf or a lamb? And are you packing heat and ready to contest the vote, or will you just go along with the majority and get […]

Quotes on the Internet

For today’s wallpaper we have a rather satirical quote from (allegedly) Abraham Lincoln. Now, if you believe he really said this, then I have a bridge to sell you…. Despite that, it is a good point and one worth remembering. This amusing wallpaper is presented in high definition and will bring a smile to any […]

Success and Failure

Once again we have a legendary Churchill quote to inspire you on a dull day. Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts. It’s so true. There are many times I have quoted this to encourage myself or others to carry on despite a setback, or to […]

Enemies

We continue our Quotes theme with another Churchill gem, this time regarding his views on having enemies. It’s rather hard to argue with him on this one isn’t it? Having enemies means you took a stand on something, right or wrong: you stepped up and did something, rather than keeping you head down and going […]

This was the 4th nuclear weapon ever detonated and the test was aimed at finding out how effective nuclear weapons are against warships. This was the second blast […]
