My 2nd monitor was blank when I took screenie. Normally I just have a boatload of terminals open and/or a tv show playing. So here's just the wallpaper it uses: http://imgf.tw/241633918.png

How do you get your TV Shows to show like that +Cupcakes?

Tons of patience. Do get a "shelf" background, you'll just need to edit the specific folder's "Show View Options." You can apply a background there.

As far as the cases go, I grab whatever image I find from imdb/amazon/google that I like and toss that into Slipcover. Then you just copy/paste one of the cases from the icns you like and under that show's folder through 'Get Info.' Just paste it over the folder icon itself and voila.

My first ever post in the Mac OS Desktops forum-just an old Imac G4 Ilamp that I found on ebay to see how the other half lives. It"s not Snow Leopard but I quite enjoy surfing the net and playing around with Geektool.

Only app I can think of that people might not know is Tower. Its a GUI frontend for Git and intergrates with GitHub beautifully!

Have you ever used Rainmeter before? It's essentially the same concept there :).

Very cool, did you create those scripts yourself, or did you grab them from a source, if so care to share?

Grabbed all the scripts from this site. All I did was change the appearance and position (Museo Slab 500 and Gill Sans, by the way).
