Where can I get that dock app that puts thoughs seperators in. Looks like another great way to customize your dock

they are just fake .apps.

1) make a new folder, name it <space>.app (do a space with the space bar so it "won't have a name" )
2) make a separator in PhotoShop, copy it and paste it as the new .app's icon ... drag into the dock.

JP, you stupid ****wit. Don't host things on your personal web server when it can't handle the load!

How about we just try this, instead?

I've actually thought a couple of times before how would the sunken widgets look in aqua, but i'm too lazy to mod them. Now that i see them, i think they look great.

No, it's called Synergy. VERY awesome. VERY switched on. VERY unobtrusive. In that you can click through it. So if it pops up, it won't be in your way if you need to press the button under it or what have you.

Konfabulator is still on the way. I've been watching the progress at the site and I'm glad they're getting close to the end finally. Wish I could have been a Beta Tester though. I've wanted to try for months.

The blowfish is the OpenBSD logo, I didn't make that myself but I cropped it from another another picture and placed it on a nice blue background.

I don't know the CLI command, but TinkerTool will do it for you.

How did you change the icon in the Synergy window?

There are two packages you have to open, first the prefpane, then there's the actual synergy app inside the prefpane's resources, go to it's resources and replace SynergyLarge.png with whatever you want. I also made the menubar controller buttons look a little nicer.

Synergy is cool but that icon was fairly ugly. Now I have Domokun announcing my tunes.
