Geeky wallpaper

1024x768 jpegs, suitable for many screens although display pixel counts have increased quite a bit over that by now and someday I'll need to rethink this. For now, just stretch 'em and hope your renderer does a reasonable job.

Prius stuff
[*Note: Prius drivetrain cutaway pix are not originally mine -- snarfed out of various manuals and network sources, resized UP and fiddled a bit, so they ain't great but still considerably better than how they were found.]
