Windows XP Desktop Wallpaper ExchangerThis neat little "power toy" is a free download from Microsoft. It allows you to point to a folder full of your pictures for use as wallpaper. This means that instead of having a stagnate picture as your background Windows displays all the pictures in whatever folder you designated in a kind of really slow slide show. Sounds cool huh. Well, you haven't heard it all yet.
In addition to dynamically changing your wallpaper you can also put pictures in designated folders. The program will display these pictures as wallpaper on those days instead of your normal selection of pictures and return to your normal rotation the next calendar day. For example, I have 10 pictures chosen for my background and this is what I see everyday on my desktop wallpaper. Now let's say that I loaded a bunch of Vols images in the program's designated folder for the date Sept. 1st. On Sept. 1st when I boot my computer up, the Windows wallpaper is going to see that I stored pictures within its Sept. 1st folder and run that set of pictures (My Vols images) instead of the normal set of images. When I boot up on the morning after the next day on Sept. 2nd the Wallpaper Changer will see that I have no images stored in the folder for this date and run the default set of images again.
You can set the wallpaper display length from 15 minutes to 1 week between pictures. You can manually skip a picture, or choose one image to display as long as you want . With the Windows Wallpaper changer your desktop will never be dull and lifeless again.
First, create a folder and name it something descriptive and unique ("UT Wallpaper"). Now, when the page of the graphic comes up right click the picture but don't select "Save as background", instead select "Save As" and when the window comes up asking where you want to save the picture to, select that folder we created earlier ("UT Wallpaper") and select save (make sure you save as a .jpg).
Once you have done that, with all of the wallpaper images you want in your folder. Now open up the Wallpaper Changer and in the "Change Wallpaper at Intervals" window navigate to the folder you dumped the wallpaper images into from this page or any other pictures you save unto your folder. Now you should almost immediately see them in the preview window. Select OK and you should see the program take affect.

'The eagle couldn't have picked a better person'
June 25, 2011
Words cannot describe what this photo means to the Ruch family, and every soldier that ever fought for this country. The eagle represents our country values, and is the symbol of our freedom to fight and protect her at all cost. What a tribute to the soldiers that gave their very lives for that freedom. "Freedom is not free" [Gabe Correa - Smokey's Trail]
It was a crow that first caught Frank Glick's attention. It was flying around erratically, so Glick got out his Nikon camera and followed it. It was around 6 a.m. on a hazy spring day and he was driving through Fort Snelling National Cemetery because he was early for a training meeting at Delta Airlines, where he works.
|Challenger, a 20-year-old male bald eagle named in honor of the lost space shuttle crew, stopped by "Good Morning America" on April 5th with his handler Al Cecere, founder and president of the American Eagle Foundation. Challenger also flew at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville at the end of the National Anthem on Sept. 19, 1998. Tennessee won that game 20-17 and beat Florida in over-time.|
