    So when running windows 7 through bootcamp, i got my desktop to look like this:
    [​IMG] (with the arc in the corner).

    I did that using Rainmeter. What i have now is: [​IMG]

    which i made using Geektool and BowTie. Kind of like the arc look more. Anyone know any way of replicating that? couldn't find anything when i was looking it up myself

    Ya, I'm using geektool. its just that on windows i have that circle thing on the top right that tells the time, ram/cpu usage, and some other things. I was wondering if theres something like that (which was done with arcs on windows) on macs. heres the link to the rainmeter things i used - http://kaelri.deviantart.com/art/Arcs-112670528

    Ok, using sed&awk see below. What you can do is grab an image as you've quoted in your url and set the opacity as low as you like..

    CPU
    top -l 2 | awk '/CPU usage/ && NR > 5 {print $3, $4, "\n", $5, $6,"\n", $7, $8}'

    Uptime:
    uptime | awk '{print "UPTIME : " $3 " " $4 " " $5 " " }'; top -l 1 | awk '/PhysMem/ {print "RAM : " $8 " "}' ; top -l 2 | awk '/CPU usage/ && NR > 5 {print $6, $7=":", $8, $9="user ", $10, $11="sys ", $12, $13}'

    Unfortunately Geek Tool there is not really templates as you get woth RainMeter.... it's down to what you want and how you want it IMHO.. I've posted up a sample desktop pic... it was quick and dirty.....



    HTH

    :D
