I got kind of a stupid question, but does geek tool slows down your computer or is it harmful in anyway??? I was thinking about installing it and making a desktop, but was just worried it might be harmful.

Geektool runs via Unix commands. Things like date and time are simple strings that just grab the information from the OS. As long as you don't download any strange scripts and tell Geektool to run them, you'll be fine. Plus, playing with it is tons of fun!

It's an app called 'coversoutra' , really handy if you use iTunes a lot! I believe it will cost you around 1$

Updated mine a while back. Changed to a side bar for most of the data, I quite like it.

The weather stuff (images, conditions, and forecast) is from my Ultimate Weather script. It's currently in beta, and there is a download for everyone at my google code site (check my signature).

Where are you pulling the reminders from and what script are you using to access them?

Thanks! I founded those text icons from the Deviantart website, and then use the program 'Candybar' to change everything.
