Nice desktop... but can you please make a thumbnail next time? Having to scroll over an entire page is somewhat annoying and also against the rules.

* If you plan to img-embed your desktop, please try to keep it at/under 1024x768 and under 100k (It's recommended that you link it, externally).

Samurize (Wallpaper included): Artificial Evolution

(1280x1024 - 326 K)

A year later, I finally have something new! I modded this Samurize script a little. I added an image to the desktop, so it blends in with the wallpaper. It reads my processor activity, like the graph below it. I'm still trying to figure out what to put on the far, bottom left. I'm experimenting with RSS feeds.

Example of second processor monitor on desktop (it fades in and out with my CPU activity):

Yes, this desktop is yet another clone of these numerous Vista desktops. :ninja:

Besides the VS and wallpaper, nothing changed from last month, except that I gave XP the XPize treatment. :cool:

already been answered, but they are running:

objectdock (icons that are at the top of first shot and in an arc at the bottom shot)

rainlendar with my skin (links in above post and skin in my sig)

and mirandaIM with tweakUI plugin and different icons as the IM program

as for the pimping wallpaper, just color over the icons with orange using Paint. It's not that hard. The other, I believe, has already been posted.

Cool desktop. But be aware that you're applying unified semi transparency to your windows; in 2006 we'll see alpha blended semi transparency. Until then we can do the same in Windows - with the help of programs like Glass2k, of course.

EDIT: here's an example.
