    I want that clock too!

    Candybar is one of the best apps when it comes to changing icons. It can also customize your dock. Here's my desktop:

    The easiest way to handle icon changes is via candybar - see http://www.panic.com/candybar/

    You can change your theme on Leopard by Magnifique the same way you choose a skin of your web browser. Mine is Apple Red. There is a white icon set for themes with black menu bar. I can't remember where it was, but probably I got them off of this site. The color of time and date is done by iStat menus.

    Thanks! As for the temperature, it's Fahrenheit!

    Has anyone come up with a solution on how to mod the dock if it is displayed on the side?

    I can't really use the dock other than if it is displayed on the side and I would like to modd it, but the only thing I have managed so far is to change the icons.

    Help anyone?

    thx, fulip

    What kind of effect does that have on battery life? Its really cool looking as a wallpaper but not cool enough to sacrifice battery life.

    Well fist you have to go to www.leoparddocks.com. Then you have to find a dock that you like. Download it. Then go to Macintosh HD>System>Library>Core Services. Then right click on dock and click show package contents. Then click contents>resources. Take everything out of that folder and replace it with what you downloaded. Then go to Terminal and type in "killall Dock". but make sure you dont type in the quotations. Then you should have it. Hope it works!:D

    an easier way to mod your dock is with an app called dock library. Google it. Once downloaded, go to www.leoparddocks.net or www.leoparddocks.com download the ones you want then open dock library and hit import. It's just that simple. It really is a great program.
