    Hey guys

    I just got around to changing up my dock, putting in some cool new icons to replace default icons...and am on my way to starting to use Geektools.

    However I was very hesitant before about doing all this because I was afraid that all these tweeks would somehow, someway start screwing up my Mac (slow performance or IDK, something) All the Icon downloads or the dock downloads...Obv's I couldn't resist and changed up my stuff just yesterday but I'm a little worried that it'll somehow start messing up performance or something of my Mac...am I right or am I wrong?

    I want to get into Geektools but is that a haxsie? Will it neg. affect my :apple: ?

    Let me know...thanks so much!

    None of that is going to affect your Mac in any way other than appearance. Don't worry about it.

    Not true. Depending on what scripts you're running for Geektools, it can eat up quite a bit of RAM.

    ^^ cool so something like geektools - that's not a haxsie?

    what would be considered a haxsie then?
