    It's GeekTool with the following code:

    cal | sed "s/^/ /;s/$/ /;s/ $(date +%e) / $(date +%e | sed 's/./*/g') /"


    The asterisk in this part of the code 's/./*/g') can be changed to almost any other character, and is used to replace the numbers of the current day in the calendar (see image below). I believe wizwaz3 is using "#".

    You need to use a monospaced font, like Courier.

    Use a fixed-width font if you are having problems with spacing. Lucida Grande works fine for me, though. :)

    I use (and thus, recommend using) Andale Mono for your mono-spaced font. Monaco is also nice.

    No, it took an unusually long time for me too.

    If you click, it becomes big. :) It's from Interfacelift a while ago.
