I recently got a bigger monitor (old is 1680x1050, new is 1920x1200) which means I now need a higher resolution copy of my all-time favorite desktop wallpaper - which appears to have disappeared from the Internet!
Does anyone know the source or where I may get a higher resolution copy?
(Sorry for such a lame thread topic. Feel free to make your own image source request too.)
Google reverse image search (search by image) reports 'No other sizes of this image found.'
If you remember where exactly did you get it from, you can try using the Wayback Machine / Internet Archive.
This wallpaper shouldn't be that hard to recreate or you can just stretch the old one ;P
One of these https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=166062 could be a good place to start
Thanks for helping me look. Those are all good ideas. I'm afraid I keep my web browser history pretty clean. I don't remember where I got it from, but I assumed it was from someone on these forums...
I'll keep searching, but yes, I may have to settle for *gulp* stretching it.
Maybe here is one to your liking

This wallpaper is not too difficult to generate. A black background in inkscape, a bezier-curve filled with a transparent whitish gradient, a grid and some contours with a bit of blur.
WOAH. Very nice! Looks like it's time for me to learn how to use Inkscape.
Well, that version will never be too small for any screen resolution. Thank you!
