Windows Welcome Screen Pictures

Posted in Design | Fun Stuff at Monday, 16 January 2006 22:04 W. Europe Standard Time

I'm always looking for funny user images to place on my logon screen. Of course, normal users have been assigned their own image, but what to do with the Administrator and the Guest account? Whenever I see some ugly funny pictures of people I'll save it for later consideration to assign them to the Administrator or Guest user. Till today, Guest has always been a woman (as I like having women as my guests :-)), whereas the Administrator has been assigned a picture of a male.

Yesterday evening I was browsing through my referrals and found that someone came here from my ICQ profile. There was an ad banner on top of the profile page that had a picture in it. This nice girl immediately convinced me to be the new Guest.

ICQ Ad Banner

Here she is, ready to brighten up your Welcome Screen in two exciting variations:

Young Gal Variation 1 Young Gal Variation 2

In case you wonder how the old Guest picture and my Administrator look like:

Young Gal Young Lad*

* It's actually a soothing feeling to know that nobody else than Peter Norton has full control over my machine.

"Till today, Guest has always been a woman (as I like having women as my guests ), ..."
