Well it's never gonna be random when you stick to the original size of the tile image. (80x80 px for the spring header)
Btw it seems Nathan used a pretty wide tile image (300+ px ? =p) judging by the screenshot..
Looks like it only repeats three or four times. Which kinda defeats the purpose of using a tile :p

Yours looks good but is too crowded.. too many snow flakes and yes, it looks repetitive too, just not as much :P

Hm my guess is you're trying to use Stylish or something similar to replace the header images?

Since my winter header is a modified version of Eljay's spring header, the easiest way to get the winter header with usercss would be to switch to the Plus! Live - Spring theme and then just replace the images with UserCSS/JS/Stylish.
Otherwise the tile might not line up with the logo correctly and you'd have to include more overrides manually.

Btw, the color is #666666, according to mpl.css :p

That's a horrible idea.

Here you go:

They haven't been optimised - sorry :P. I'm sure someone here can do that...



Oh and andreys is nice, but it's not really suitable for the time of year. At this time of year (christmas) everything is much darker, the days get darker much earlier...

I personally prefers andrey's concept as it blends better in with the blue, also, the current image is too dark and unreal.

Looks more like the dark blue is blowing out instead of sucking in.
