Are there any good Orthodox wallpapers out there for the computer? Right now I'm using one I made, and am thinking about making another, but figured I'd ask if there were already some out there before I did. ...?

Right, I forgot about the resident professional photographer! I'll have to spend some time looking through your collections... Can you recommend any suitable candidates for a computer/iPad background?

Check out the Great Lent photos of the Pan-Orthodox Vespers. I visited a number of absolutely gorgeous churches.

Check Facebook albums on my page.

Maybe you've even been to some of them. Smiley

I really miss Asteriktos.

There is a 1.1% chance that my wallpaper is Orthodox.

I do not know why. I only know that I learned that it is possible to write with at least some degree of humility from him. He is a good teacher by example, although on rare occasions he gets grumpy.
