Anyone got any ideas for spicing up the default background in ML? I always like keeping the default for a week or two after the new OS comes out! Maybe putting the time behind the galaxy or something?

Thumb resize.

I made it so it shows my Spotify currently playing album art, then last tracks in 10, 30, and hour refreshes.

Here is my desktop. Still a work in progress, but I think I have most of what I want - at least until tomorrow anyway.

This is a combination of Geektool, Dateline, Simple Floating Clock, Yahoo Widgets and Bowtie. I have been tweaking it for the past two and a half months.

The dock is one I found on Deviant art and the menubar is part of a black OSX them which I applied on top of Aquadock's ML theme. I also installed black/dark folder/system icons but you can't see those because I don't have a window open.

My day job is as a graphic designer and I spend a lot of time on my Macs (the one with all this is a 1Ghz 17" PowerBook G4) so I want to "like" my desktop. Part of my time in this was tracking down PowerPC versions of Dateline and Bowtie. I'm using Location X (to switch network locations) and this Mac is mobile so the IPs will change. Consequently, the network info you see here is not static. It will change when I move locations.

Anyway, here it is…

my geektool desktop



Hope you like it. My geektool desktop. Im not a geek. This took me a lot longer than I had originally expected. The main trouble was a weekly weather forecast.

The has since been updated to include geek info for whats playing in itunes, including timeline for track playing.

apologies for the black spots, i had to blank off some details from calender.

Thanks to the web, code was sourced from multiple sites / sources. I tried and tested that many I cant recall what was from where, but nothing has been coded my me (i made a few modifications / amendments to suit my pref / system)

You can ask questions, but as im not a geek please expect basic replies. I work shifts so replies may be delayed / not immediate.

I just searched YouTube to figure it out. There were a few tutorials on there that were some help. You can also try these links. I found them to be helpful.

This is an older post, but I just got started with Geektool and I am pretty impressed with the versatility that it has. Here's my contribution to the topic, nothing special, just something that scales easily when I plug into my Thunderbolt Display. Hope you guys like it.

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a script that will display emails on my homepage (preferably information like time and subject too) from my inbox matching specific search criteria (In this case the name of my employer). Is anyone aware of anything that could work in this fashion? Cheers!
