Where did you get those Calabi icons? It's fine if you made them for yourself, but I'd be strongly against it being distrubted somewhere.

They are windows icons by Hybrid Rainbow. Whats the issue? Using the Calabi name? Google search turns up a plethora of uses, none of which are specific to Sascha's icons.

Thanks for having a quick reply DJ.

Yeah Phil i got them from that site and converted them for use on a Mac. I don't plan on sharing them, though anyone can do it for themselves if they like.

Sorry if this ruffles anyone's feathers, but Phil is right about sharing them.

What program is the one that displays the song on iTunes. Is it a widget, and if so which one?

Unless the name "Calabi" is a ®™ it can be used for anything, anywhere at anytime...... maybe Sascha should consider registering that name as a ®™.

Still wondering what is the application you're using right below the menubar?

I'll answer, it's Dragthing from www.dragthing.com - it's shareware but it's a nice tool.

Hey, now that's one of the better darker themes in a while and yet still not that dark that you have to use a flashlight.

I like the glossiness. But aren't the finderbuttons a tad to small ? lIke not as tall ?

Thanks, it's the final variant of changeling so I have kept all the bits the same size, they are fractionally smaller, but will look really nice with finder window icons I am making.

I'm just worried people will be confused when the real Calabi icons come out. Naming an icon set that is based on Calabi's style "Calabi" is bound to cause confusion, period. But at least the real ones will be a part of the MINIUM° icon set, and not named "Calabi", so no major issues here.

And yeah, since I haven't registered the mark, I can't sue. But what if someone made a bunch of silver round icons and called them MINIUM°? Couldn't Sascha complain?

Oh, and I just found out it's called Calabi Orb. Cool. Kinda funny how there's no Mac version for download

A lot of people have requested that, and we're definitely considering it for a major update of Paper & Plastic sometime.

Mind sending me some screencaps of the metal window bevels and masks in themepark? I am trying to track down an anomaly with the finder and your theme looks like it may have a clue.....

thx

Lord Sith,

Any tips on modding DragThing so they resemble yours? I gave it a quick dry run but don't want it if it'll just look like more Konfab widgets. But I think the way you have yours set is very functional as well as attractive. Cheers.

To get the translucency you must buy/register Dragthing. Set translucency to 100% and 90% respectively...... under Visibility on Dock Options.

Other than that, yes, it does require some tinkering.
NOTE: If you use the translucency settings; in Advanced (still under Dock Options) be sure to check the box entitled Allow Clicks and Drags on Transparent Areas.

Randman, this is a totally off-topic topic/question. I see you have Superman as your signature; have you seen "Worlds Finest" by Sandy Collera ? It's quite a good movie-teaser.

I suggest you look it up.
