Default HWC folding wallpaper!

I was wondering if there were any folks on our team or in the forum who had Photoshop skills? Would be nice if there was a folding wallpaper to adorn the desktop of my folding rig. I saw some nifty ones on the Evga site (dark, with silver-metallic proteins), and thought that somebody might be able to whip up a great wallpaper.

I would do it myself, but this is the best I can do:



For my picture, I was thinking a caption like "Folding for HWC: So Easy your 2 year old could do it", or "54196: Tooth-pick us!"

So...anybody with any skills?

That could end badly in soo many ways, just make sure the rig isn't plugged in and jugging away when you do that

heheh I was thinking about that, could use a old case or something incase the beaver decided to push it off into the water or something. just need a HWC Flag sticking out of the lodge and a computer or two sitting on top, getting the beaver in the shot would be neat but id have to bait him somehow and it would probably get ugly

Well, you could print off a HWC web banner in colour, and tape it to the side of the computer!

Yes, video or pics or it didn't happen!

If you guys want ill go for some pics, I have lots of old computer parts/ power supplies I could scatter on top the lodge along with a machine and a flag or sticker...

Use a webcam if you have one, try to focus it on the distance on a good computer that isn't going on the dam and record that way
