Screen Savers & Desk Top pics

Inspired by JT's mention of Screen Savers, I thought (I do think now and again) that it might be fun to share our own screen savers, as it could give a clue as to one's personality, or indeed lack of it.

Mine is one I found on the internet, and hope that it is OK to post here.

Mine has been the same for over 3 years (I should probably change it!) but it is of Clive Wilson in David Lee's Tojeiro Jap in the one and only FISCAR FLIERS race so far run, at Castle Combe in 2013. The car was modified by Brian Lister in period for Archie Scott Brown to drive and known as 'The Asteroid'. It's an amazing looking car with an equally amazing sound:-

Yeah, I reckon Behra/Gordini, too.

Is there a protocol that says screen savers should be changed, Tim?

I'm outraged by the one with the pussy in it.

Are we talking screen savers or desktop picture? Screen savers are supposed to change or at least move around as with the original CRT monitors one fixed picture would burn an image on the screen, I'm not sure f it's the same for the newer LCD or LED type monitors.
The pussy is Harry, AKA Edgar and Judas. We rescued him from a life of wandering round a hospital, he had cat flu and was a scrawny thing. We looked after him, fed him and got him fit. How does he repay us, he's moved in with the old woman over the road, but he is good to us as he pops over every day for a bowl of chicken.

Wallpaper is what my laptop calls the background pics! And I don't use any photos, only whatever the device has pre-installed... Boring, I know, but it was said to me by a very savvy friend that using a photo sucks a lot of memory? (And my memory sucks..... )

I posted in response to Mike Bell's last utterance, and included 6 of my own wallpapers, but the post seems to have disappeared. I realise that the thumbnails were not in a horizontal row, as Tim's are laid out for example, and would that be the reason the post disappeared.

And how does one post multiple pictures like Tim and others do? all help appreciated.

And for Mike, I checked on my laptop, and my desktop pictures (wallpapers) use negligible amounts of memory.
