It's midmonth, so time for a change. :)

My personlized Longhorn Visual Style, based on various .msstyles.

My personlized Longhorn Aero skin for Rainmeter/Rainlendar

(original skin by Josephs.)

Konfabulator weather widget is overlayed on an empty Rainmeter picture frame. I'll make a Rainmeter weather skin as soon as I can get the friggin' RSS to work. > : (

These will not be released. They're just for my use.

Comments welcome! :)

Thanks for the compliment :)

I used to use TLB, but imho it and the apple docks are WAY too resource intensive. What I'm using is real simple and efficient: a regular quicklaunch bar with some ShortPop menus. I gave some details in the Sep '05 screenshot thread: http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=54833&st=40

The clock in the left side of the taskbar is an html page with a java script:

As for the vis style: sorry, but I won't say because it's based on one that was later found to be a rip. I'd have tossed it, but I had already spent too much time customizing it. However, there are tons of good ones out there, so look for "Longhorn" and "Vista" styles, then customize one you like with TGT Stylebuilder.

If the mods are cool with it, I'll post the Start Button image and the Stylebuilder settings for it.

Cheers!

Here's mine.

* Vis Style is my personal mod of Milk 2.0 by lennard

* The little clock in the left side of the Taskbar is an html script.

* The blurred pic is a Konfabulator slideshow of my gf

* The clock and sysmeter are Rainmeter skins

* The calendar and to-do are from Rainlendar

* The weather and countdown are from Konfabulator

* The bordered icons on the left are ShortPopUp menus.

(click images to enlarge)

I have been using Aston to theme my desktop, still with the basics at the moment while I link the apps through. Can´t seem to get the two side docks to show up in screen cap though (even though they work fine)

Alrighty...This one may not be all that functional, but it's pretty cool IMO. I'm probably gonna look more into the graphical stuff you can do with Samurize, but I've got more on my plate now, and I'm not at home that much anymore... :P

Clicky to make biggy

The visual style is called Sentinel Beta by ChaNinja. You can find it at DeviantArt.

But wait... there's more!!!!! A picture doesn't do it true justice. Check this out! That's right... B)

:D

@ripken204: Give me a few days and I'll write a basic SPU tutorial, k? Be patient, it'll be well worth the wait, I promise. :)

@wolf7448: Turn off your caps-lock key, noob. Don't you know that the louder you yell, the less people will listen?

Also, one man's "clutter" is another man's bliss. Since you're a self-described newbie, you might want to be a bit more polite. Otherwise you'll quickly find that others aren't very eager to help you when you need it.

Here's a good link fer ya: http://www.albion.com/netiquette/corerules.html
