I found it by following your link in the OP.
:oops: When I searched yesterday EV's Persona didn't show up - now it does!

I've downloaded it EV - it's very nice!

If you haven't done so, you really should follow that link. It doesn't link you directly to the image, but to a download page which is mostly a warning about just how big the image is and what horrid things it could do to your computer :shock: It's got to be the scariest download page I've seen!
Now I'm off to download it, so if you never hear from me again.... :cry:

I have that image as one of my backgrounds. :P

On a related note, for those of you running Windows 7 - You can get a theme pack with that image and many similar NASA images... http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... .themepack

Active users… this can rise or fall, which intrigues me. Is my Firefox browser reporting back to some central control every day?
Something like: ‘Checking-in… yeah, he’s got the same purple outfit on again today’.

Purple outfit, you say?

Seeing as you dredged this thread up, I have to agree - that pic is absolutely stunning!
Also - seven people are still using my Firefox Oolite Persona, which uses slices of that pic.
