    Lately I have been seeing some really neat,
    elaborate desktop wallpaper that includes the
    date and time in large fonts as well as weather
    information that might, for instance, include a
    picture of the sun with the temperature and
    forecast beneath it.

    This isn't something put together by Yahoo
    Widgets. My guess is GEEKTOOL, though I
    have tried to use the program to create
    elaborate informative wallpapers and have
    gotten nowhere.


    Here, let me give you an example of what
    I am talking about...

    So, you have an idea of what I am after.

    ....and I suppose what I am really asking here is
    for some extensive help. If this is all GEEKTOOL,
    I was hoping there was some sort of tutorual on
    how to put this kind of stuff together as far as
    grabbing the day, date, weather and any other
    kind of system information I can throw up there.

    Thanks in advance!
