Peeling the wallpaper II

My son just walked in from hockey practice. I was in front of the TV (“Eureka” SO rules), not the computer, but still this was his greeting, with a grin: “Did you change the wallpaper?”

Why, yes.

He changed it back briefly, played a snippet of Slipknot as loud as he could, then restored the monster and dice, at my insistence.

Actually he could have picked anything from the menu, such as the painting elephants, but it seems D & D was a reasonable compromise. Maybe I can scour up some “Resident Evil 4” wallpaper as a surprise.
