Change the Windows 7 Login Screen Background Image
When you login to your Windows 7 computer (assuming you haven’t used something like this tutorial to turn on automatic login), you’ll generally see a login window with a background looking something like this. It’s fine; there’s nothing wrong with it. But sometimes a change is good so in this article we’ll show you how to change the background image behind the login screen to anything you want. The first step is to open up the Start Menu by clicking the orb in the lower left corner of the screen. Now, in the Start Menu search box, type regedit, to open up the Registry Editor. When the Registry Editor appears in the Start Menu, click the Enter key to launch it. Now, right-click on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, and choose the Find option. The search window will appear so perform a search for OEMBackground. Note: it’s possible that OEMBackground doesn’t exist on your system; if this is the case, adding a new DWORD value with the name of OEMBackground will fix things.

Something with just enough oomph to throw up an image on a 3rd display. @ericesque: If you're not looking to game or do anything crazy.... you can't go wrong picking up a last-generation but-still-brand-name card for around $40-60. @Jason Fitzpatrick: @pettiblay: Thanks for the ideas. The external matrox device would be an option, but I can going the video card route seems to be cheaper. Thanks again.

List of websites that can be useful for anyone How to Make Texas-Style Smoked Brisket in a Gas Grill In Texas, barbecue is about beef: specifically brisket, the cut by which any joint is judged. Brisket has become a favorite of restaurant chefs, too, hence the smoke ribbons and Hank Williams songs drifting out of restaurants as far away as Brooklyn. But can great brisket be made at home? Brisket (from the cow’s breast or lower chest) is rich in connective tissue, so it requires a low-and-slow process to relax the muscle into tender goodness–a pleasure that can’t be achieved with a quicker method.
