    I decided to utilize all of macOS's hiding functionality. The menu bar and the dock are both set to autohide.

    I've actually really come to love the autohide feature. First off, it makes my desktop POP. The background looks absolutely beautiful, and the geektool scripts look very clean and classy on the black background. Secondly, it creates a unique sense of focus whenever I have a window open. I've come to really like how it's turned out. I'll be using this set up for a while, though I may rotate images.

    My dock itself I'm taking a new approach as well. Since I use Alfred for basically every command now, the dock only has three items by default: Finder, Launchpad, and Trash. Anything else that shows up in the dock is a running application.

    I tried autohiding the menu bar but many times I'd bring it up accidentally when I'd move the cursor up to click the web address bar in Safari. The cursor would move too far and hit the edge of the screen bringing up the menu bar. I did like how it looked though.

    I love how eery and mysterious that looks.

    Decided to mix it up now that Halloween has passed and not use my OS X Lion wallpaper, but rather one of the old hidden OS X wallpapers.

    We recently replaced our old bushes in the backyard with some of these. Weird time to plant them considering it's almost winter, but that wasn't my decision, heh.

    It's a laser cannon in disguise! Or a satellite dish in camouflage.

    51 day uptime on a Hackintosh and it's still running as fast it did at boot (longest uptime of any 'Mac' I've ever used and I've had plenty).

    Okay. Would you like a medal then? You have certainly achieved what most have not.

    No. I'll however consider giving you a medal for outstanding job well done IF you put on metal boots and wear them on a hot summer day with +25 degrees celcius. But for keeping a computer running for x amount of days? No. No medal for you.

    Instead of moving mouse pointer to web address field each time to click it and type in new web address, press Command + L keys. This keyboard shortcut will put cursor at/highlight address field for you. Then just type.

    You can has as soon as I actually put it together with ThemeEngine ;) Also note - it's a macOS Sierra thing.

    It's only set up using Sketch for the purpose of getting an overview of various elements.

    I need to throw down some coffee. I live next to The Neighbours from Hell. Which means 'Zzzzz' is not always allowed :(

    Are there any changes to the current look you'd like to see? I'm worried about the brightness of the "Aqua" elements.

    I hope that macOS will take on the scrollbar look due to margins and stuff.

    And here are some from my iBook G4. It's running 10.5, but themed to look like Sierra.

    Back with GoodTask, actually participating in their Dutch localization.
    I might do a video about my setup someday.
