FTL!

I need to add some money to my Steam account because I'm dying to purchase a copy of FTL, Mark of the Ninja, and (once it comes out) Fez.

The word you are searching for is "skins". tongue.gif

DeviantArt has a huge selection. The categories can be a bit annoying to navigate.

http://browse.deviantart.com/customization/skins/sysmonitor/rainmeter/?order=9

I would set it to "Popular All Time" for viewing options. Also, beware of some skins containing malware. Usually the ones at the top of "Popular All Time" don't have any.

Anyways, I like to use Elegance2. Omnimo is very neat (currently version 5 I believe) if you want to blend Metro Live Tiles with your desktop.

+ Rep. Thats some good info smile.gif DaviantArt is loaded with skins.

The skins I am using are Enigma, Implosion and Iron Man. You could also do what I did and just search on google images. search things like "Rainmeter calandar" or "Rainmeter clock". You will get tons of results and be able to find ones you like and then go download the skins once you figure out which ones you like.

Here is another one i've done (i am bit of a desktop wh0re)tongue.gif, That clock skin i got is absolutely awesome! It isn't static it actually has an animation and looks great!

post #310 of 1834


Here is my current desktop. I know, its a mess but theres method in the madness. It was actually alot worse about 5 minutes ago but this thread forced me to clean it up a bit. I hate when Catalyst driver updates mess up all your icons. I even have a shell script thats supposed to save icon positions for different desktop resolutions but its kind of broken atm i need to fix it frown.gif

The desktop background switches out to different http://deadendthrills.com/?cat=314 skyrim wallpapers every 10 minutes or so to keep it fresh. It's not windows built in default desktop switcher i actually have a script that checks the website for new updates in that category (skyrim) and downloads them when need be. He adds more every so often so i get a surprise every now and again.

Left hand side is random games, most of them completed. Top is currently playing games. Right hand side are a bunch of utility apps for video conversion, media streaming to PS3, a half-dozen game-service clients and another half dozen VoIP programs, that sort of thing.
