To the two of you that installed it, any feedback?

Interesting. No "preview" window to see what the backgrounds look like make it a little tedious for the users. Can someone create an image with a little 'piece' of each background to show the members?

I like the idea though

So what am I doing wrong?

I don't see the list of patterns has a drop list? I just see a empty text box.

Please point out the glaring obvious thing I am missing. Thanks!
