I got a really cool sunset over the mountains. Work computer, and no trouble loading. Not sure how home will cope!

Ah good, it'll be fine at home then if they're not serving the silly code to Opera. Mindyou, don't usually use the google homepage at home either- new tab, use the search box...

if you've got an account, you can login and change the background image to whatever you want. Which is still a pain. A plain white image doesn't too well, as the white text with drop shadows is not great on it. A black background does work well though. To save you sixty seconds making it paint, here's mine- 6.28kB of 800*600 png. Right click, save it to your computer, and use the changer thingy to upload it.

or just use iGoogle, which I normally do.
