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. ...?

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

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.
