It's TypeCast. Lets you preview fonts via the widget.

This is my current dashboard featuring a couple mods I did of the included widgets. Just a simple one for the calculator, and an overhaul of the calendar (who thought bright red was attractive?) in Aero style. Thanks to a member of this fine forum whose name escapes me, who a while ago posted a Photoshop template for making Aero-style windows.

BTW, the clock in the lower left is Konfabulator's Digital Clock reskinned (waiting for a Dashboard equivalent).

I don't mind sharing the widgets at all, as long as everybody's cool with that (I know with Konfabulator, sharing reskinned widgets was kind of frowned upon). I have to get ready for work right now and I still need to make a new icon for the calculator, but I'll try to post a link late tonight. Thanks for your compliments.

Cool... I was going to send you a message asking if you would let me have that as I saw it in a screenshot.
- Thanks for providing it

Is it easy to change the colour on these widgets then??

Not so much a window shot, but a mod of a widget i thought you guys might dig:



It's an aero mod of the swanky battery status widget.

props to KP* for the areo art, and to Claudio Procida for making such a swish widget.

Edit: this is from dashboard, just f12 dropped it on the desktop to make it prettier, and it looks a bit rough round the edges due to .jpeg compression

Word of advice for battery monitor widget users: something it'll start taking 15% of your CPU randomly, while Dashboard isn't front most.

I just stick to my good ol' menu extra, thanks

when you 'show package contents' on the widgets, you find lots of image files for the individual widgets. modifying the correct image files with your favorite photo editing program results in a newly color-fied widget.

word.

p.s. of course, we like to work on a copy of our widget around these parts, not the actively installed one. : P

Just used SafariIcon to add milk theme to my Unified Safari. Modded theme to use the original safari blue folders and original location bar (milk bar seemed a bit borked in safari 2 - i also rather the bar in blue)

I free'd my mind... now it won't come back.

This is slightly off topic, but is there any ShapeShifter theme or utility to force the new unified aqua toolbar interface? It looks great, especially here.
