Then either copy and paste the icons in preview or the easier way is to use candy bar. I have uploaded a more recent image of some new icons that i made. And also with a black menu bar using Nocturne 3.

If you don't mind me asking, how did you get the time/date to display like that?

Playing around with changing application icons. I didn't find a complete set full of all the icons I need with a look I want... so I improvised. All the icons with the actual set are not even shown in the dock. :/ I keep the dock hidden though.
The time/date are added using Geektool. I have uploaded the commands used. Its quite easy to use and there are loads of tutorials out there if you get stuck. Here is the one that i used http://desktopspotting.com/25/awesom...-os-x-desktop/. As far as the icons go, i couldn't find a full set either so decided to make my own. if you have basic knowledge of photoshop they are quite easy to do.

it's an html document saved somewhere on your computer and then you set your browser's homepage/starpage to the location of that document

you can look around on google or deviantart for browser start pages

Thanks! Played around with GeekTool tonight. Pretty awesome stuff.

I might create custom icons too just so everything matches. I just didn't have the time today... Work. Meh.

Its actually the clock & calendar. Although the time/date is displayed in digits at the top, the circular thing is also a unique clock & calendar combined. It takes a while to get used to it, but its a nice looking clock for a desktop That image above is displaying 12:46 & 35 secs, 13th January

The time of 12:46:35 is representes by..
Yellow outer line is the seconds hand ticking around the clock and resting at 35
Green line is the minutes hand resting at just past 9
Blue line is the hour hand representing 12

The date of 13th January is represented by the inner two lines..
Purple line indicating 13
Grey line indicating 1
