It means more or less what the background looks like...

or webster: imitating, suggestive of, or reproducing effects (as distorted or bizarre images or sounds) resembling those produced by psychedelic drugs ...being drugs (as LSD) capable of producing abnormal psychic effects (as hallucinations) and sometimes psychotic states

stwert, if you were using a mac you could just change it without having to use hacks :p
i downloaded something called display fusion, it's free (the paid one has more features though)

i too usually have renders as my backgrounds but a few weeks ago i changed it to other pictures after installing windows 7

probably can't see it but those folders and documents on my desktop are all labeled untitled something... because i usually just put tempory thigns onto the desktop or things i dont know where to put onto the desktop
