Show us what you have done with GeekTool and how it looks on your desktop.
Mine for example.
What font/script is your clock? my clock always has a zero before single digit hours. Also your font is more subtle. Very nice
Similar question to the above, what font is the month and day in?
Also, have some contribution, details on everything are in the December Desktop thread.
The font i used is called Urban Sketch and can be downloaded here.
also the code i used to not have the zero infront is:
Mine hasn't changed for couple years.. I will need to work more on this.. as you guys are great.. thanks!!!
on my iMac
i love the simplicity of both of your computers, nothing worse then clutter!

curious on what code you used to use words rather than numbers for the time ?
Playing around with fuzzy, do you have any idea how to make Geektool display an hour ahead of the actual time, once a certain number of minutes has passed? Eg at 33 mins past Four, it can be programmed to say "About Twenty-Five to Five"?
Here is my current setup. The vertical month text is an image file controlled by NerdTool.
I'm thinking of having all the text angled, but that requires an abstract desktop and I like the look of the landscapes that I currently use.
how exactly do you tilt text? i was looking to do this before.
I've come up with two ideas:
1 - Build images with the information you wanted angled, and have a script to display those images.
2 - Use ImageMagik in a script to take text from a command and then create a picture with the text angled.
Both methods have their pros and cons. Each method involves two geeklets for one bit of text, unless you create one script that generates all the images for you at one time.
Started experimenting today. It's pretty cool but I'm having difficulty getting text to flow behind pictures properly. I need to find the right wallpaper. These will work for now. I also stumbled onto bowtie. pretty nifty as well.
fuzzy clock, date, and trash size.
Lux Bowtie skin.
thats a real nice one
where did you get that background? the one with the red stripe?
the one with the orange stripe you mean?
Have a solution to the tilting text using ImageMagick. It's a pain in the ass, but definitely will look cool if you have the right background.
Here is a simple start in the main Geektool thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=13994487&postcount=3399
Question, Don't Hesitate!
I'm guessing that, that iTunes player is a widget rather then a Geeklet/Code ?
I like the simple look of that.
