What's new:
- I've added instructions on how to setup the weather meter
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE 8/04/09 6:46pm

What's new:
- I've changed the wallpaper. And I love it.
- I've fixed a small bug in the weather meter.
- Google decided to lower their number of RSS feeds so I decided that, instead of having a bunch of blank space, I'd make the RSS meter smaller too.

UPDATE 5/04/09 8:45pm

What's new:
- I've changed the wallpaper to be a bit brighter. This is because the previous wallpaper looked like crap when it's was a thumbnail.
- I've fixed a small bug in the battery meter. It was doing some weird stuff after taking my computer out of hibernation.
- I've also made the sidebar's top right corner rounded, per gschoppe's request.

What's new:
- I've fixed a small bug in the weather skin, where the forecast would go outside the background.
- I've also made the sidebar's top left corner rounded, per fediaFedia's request.

The Story
I recently came to the realization that I had many rainmeter meters running on my desktop that I actually had no use for. This was making my desktop look cluttered, as well as causing rainmeter to hog my CPU. So I took everything that I never used off my desktop and started working on creating a functional, as well as good looking, desktop.


Rainmeter Changes
- Since I am constantly using my RSS multimeter, I decided to double it's size, as well as add more "tabs"

- I like using my weather meter occasionally, but I realized that to make it fit with the other meters, I'd have to make it vertical

- I constantly keep an eye on my HDD space (so I know when it's time to "clean up") so I decided to design a HDD meter based off of the HUDvision HDD meter

- I realized that, although the calendar meter was nice, it took up too much room for my liking. So I shrunk it to fit with my weather meter and my HDD meter.

- As for the bottom bar, it's always visible so I always have access to my battery usage, programs, and time.

Love the RSS feed and the background for it. A few small modifications to the code and the files and it's all good to go for my favorite feeds. Not such a fan of google's news service, for example, so I just changed it to BBC. Thanks, man!

How did you make the boxes slightly transparent? Do you need Vista Aero to do that or something? Thanks, I have to say this is a pretty awesome skin
