Woah, this theme has me hooked.

X-Metal GUIKit from COTL Studios
Icons from Hein, but tilted
Various icons in the dock.
Wallpaper by: Fatboy72 called Apple Fiber @ deviantart
And my little mod of the FTP MIni Konfabulator widget - the FTP Mini Apple Logo widget.

I took up on Makki's idea and added a video in the screenshot.

Kate: If you're asking about the iTunes visualizer it's called GasLight. You can find it HERE.

Whoa, some of the desktops in here look amazing. I can't quite afford to run Shapeshifter and Konfabulator always at the same time (iBook G4 800, bleh), but once I upgrade to a 17" PB, I'll slap on Shapeshifter on there too.

Anyway, here's mine:

Yeah, the visualizer is called Gaslight 0.1 from here. The skin is Shinobi (via ShapeShifter), and slightly altered by me.

But I assume you are talking about the way I have modified the colours of iTunes' LCD, This is quite difficult and time consuming as it involves changing hex code within the UNIX Exec file in iTunes. This modification was discussed in great length in this thread. But beware - the hex addresses have changed since then. Takashi's addresses apply to 4.5 and not 4.6. I had to work them all out again which took me about an hour. If there is enough interest in this mod again then maybe I'll post my list of new addresses to save you people time.

That's a secret


Actually I forgot where I got it from. But I have uploaded that and a Mail icon.
Use Pic2Icon,Iconic or Iconverter to make them native OSX icons.

Cool. I like that it says "you have nothing to do" in that widget in the corner

I'm on my way to Mandolux's site for that wallpaper

That would be iCan, i think. Also, there's a konfabulator widget that does it.

But, yes. Dragthing does it aswell.

Whoa, you've gotta have some good eyes!

Yup, I love that to-do widget since I tend to forget things.
Amazingly, I only forget stuff like "take out the trash", "wash the dishes", "clean up the kitchen"... there's no need to note down "WWDC Today" or such.

Um, Hello??? I'm on a 500 G3 iBook running Konfabulator (6 widgets) AND Shapeshifter and all is running fine here. An 800 G4 iBook would run those fine!

It comes bundled with Konfabulator, so if you should have it already unless you've thrown it out. It is not available in the gallery. I have made a modified version with loads of different themes - About 15 I think. If you want it, PM me your eMail address.

Believe me, I looked very hard to see what it said. Well some anyways.

I used to have Stickies on my desktop, but I found out that I really do NOT have anything important to attend to. The same with that What To Do? widget. Other than looking forward to tonight when things are leaking out from the 2004 WWDC!

It takes a lot of fiddling with three different preference panes ("Preferences", "Dock Preferences" and "Layer Preferences") to get it looking and acting like you want it. To get mine looking like it does (see my snapshot further up this page) took several hours of trawling through checkboxes, sliders and popup menus. The insides of it look really nice too. And it works just how I like it.

I think it's weird that on the dragthing site most of the screenshots show it with really crap settings, e.g, with a visible window, and no special effects or anything. It can look MUCH better than that.

You /should/ have recieved a PM

Or I could just put the link here. Just remember only the gfx are changed and some gfx specific code. The about window remains the same.

Something I like about Dragthing is that I can have startup and shutdown sounds in Finder. I have not found an app that does this for OS X 10.3. If you guys know of any, please tell me, k!?

I just noticed that (again).
Well, Dragthing isn't my world. I'll stick with my good old Launchbar, which pretty much does the same thing... just easier (for me).
