UPDATE 3/30/09 12:09pm

What's new:
- I've added a battery meter with a shutdown button
- It doesn't directly shutdown the system, it opens the shutdown dialogue.
- Also, there's a time/date meter which opens "Date and Time properties" when clicked.
- Weather Multi-meter has been added to the set
- For a full description of Weather Multi-meter go here: Weather Multi-meter


Also:
The latest "untested" version of rainmeter can be downloaded here: latest rainmeter

The update fixes the anti-aliasing problem, thus giving the arcs a smoother look.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


RAINMETER:
This wouldn't be possible with out projectvirus's great work which can be
found here: projectVirus

I also used some of Kaelri's Enigma code which can be
found here: Kaelri

This is the first desktop with the Multi-meter RSS skin I created, which can be
download here: Multi-meter

And of course, the skin I created, HUD arcs, can be
downloaded here: HUD arcs


OTHER STUFF:
WinRoll- allows windows to be "rolled up" as well as minimized to the tray. You can set the transparency of windows as well.

Taskbar Shuffle- allows you to close programs from the taskbar by middle clicking them. Also allows you to drag and rearrange programs on the taskbar/system tray

Visual Style: pristine OS


INSPIRATION (the story):
Well, after creating my skin, HUD arcs, I found it a bit redundant to use skins like "cpu stats" or "battery level" because they were already incorporated into HUD arcs. So I sat down and removed every single rainmeter skin from my desktop. I then sifted through all the skins I had ever downloaded/created and put the ones I thought were actually useful on my desktop. This left me with:

-HUD arcs
-RSS feeds
-Calendar
-Notes

Pretty simple, right? Only 4 skins.
There were a few problems though. Whenever I put the RSS feeds on any of my favorite wallpapers, I couldn't read the text. I used backgrounds on the skins for a while, but it was quite ugly. And then, projectVirus came out with his background skins. So I downloaded them and started playing around. Eventually I ended up with what you see above. The part that took me the longest was the background for HUD arcs, calendar, and notes (yes, it's one background).

I've been Using this skin for quite some time and I like it a lot. Unfortunately, most of my wallpapers are right-oriented and I know nothing about matrices in relation to rainmeter. You wouldn't happen to have a version of this with a mirrored curve background so I could have it on the left side would you?
