Are you the guy that did the android homescreen with the similar layout on mycolorscreen. I have to say this is an awesome layout and tried it on my older android phone but it didn't look as good as this. Nice job!

It's an application called BowTie with PaperRift as the theme.

Working man's tool

I'm in IT, so I use GeekTool at work to keep track of the various systems and networks I'm responsible for. I also have to keep track of weather events in case of closings or possible dangerous weather (tornados and such). So my desktop is covered in tools, with lots of geekiness abounding.

Uh, the Adium buddies list on the left isn't part of my desktop, but it is a permanent fixture there across all my desktops.

Quite utilitarian, I think.

Got bored of my previous desktop, so I've made a start on "Metro-fying" it. One live tile down, next I'm going to look into an RSS feed, mail feed from specific senders and a decent geek tool/bowtie theme for iTunes and Spotify.

My Weather, Time, Solar Power Desktop

Here's the left screen from my two monitor setupů I'm using PHP scripting with my Mac running MAMP to composite images, and there's a ton of custom code behind this.

Underneath everything is EarthDesk, and I keep the sub-solar point in the center of my screen so the night-time sections are always to the left and right edges of the display.

I'm using data from Weather Underground using their free API to grab the weather from a station less than a half mile from my home. I fetch the data as an XML file, and use PHP's GD library to generate a 32-bit PNG file that's then displayed on the desktop. The weather icons come from Iconbest.com, and are free for non-commercial uses. I've got a lookup table that determines which of Weather Underground's weather codes correspond to which icons. Weather Underground also provides the age-of-moon info I use to determine which the appropriate moon phase image adjacent to the current time.

At the bottom of the screen are two more images showing the output of the solar panels on my roof. I use Enphase micro-inverters which provide ongoing data for each panel which is accessible through a series of APIs. The layout of the "Solar Panel Status" reflects the position of these panels on the various planes of the roof.

Does anybody have functioning Magic Mouse and Keyboard battery geeklets for Mountain Lion? My old ones all just read as them being disconnected and any new ones I find are derivatives of a battery meter geeklet whereas I just want the percentage, and can't for the life of me figure out how to distill the original geeklet down to remove the meter element.

Question

I was hoping to get some help. I couldn't get my ical events to show up in 10.8 with geektool and icalbuddy, so I downgraded back to 10.6. Unfortunately, I still can't get it to work.

I've installed icalbuddy 1.8.6 and geektool 3. I had a geeklet that I saved from before I upgraded to 10.8. I simply can't get it to show up when it worked perfectly fine before the upgrade. What can I do to try and troubleshoot this?

Here is my geektool script: /usr/local/bin/icalBuddy -sd -nc --timeFormat "%I:%M%p" eventsToday+2

Question need a little help

I'm hoping someone here can help me to get GeekTool working. I've seen lots of Geeklets on the GeekTool website. The instructions for all of them say Double click the geeklet and GeekTool will open it. When I double click the geeklet I get a message wanting to know which app I want to use. If I select GeekTool the GeekTool app gives me a message that it can not open files of that type.

How do I install the geeklets?
