    All the text on screen are geektool scripts. And the album art work is bowtie. Look into how to use geektool tutorials and after that PM me if you want my scripts.

    If you guys just want to post the scripts you used I don't think any of us would mind haha. I'm interested in a few. Those are some sweet set ups.

    Here you go guys. Enjoy!

    2013.zip is what you see on my desktop. Simply click each that you like and position and customize text to your liking.

    Scripts.zip are some geeklets I've gathered in the past.

    Awesome. Thanks a lot.

    Question - Do you know how to change the label on the disk drives in the cpu usage geeklet? So it says something you pick instead of disk0s2..I see where you can change the CPU Usage and Memory Usage, and I can change both partitions to the same name, but can't figure out how to change both.

    I looked at the code and I'm not sure if you can do it. It looks like the name is being pulled from the system and it prints out a disk.lst file that it uses to display the information. If you look at the disk.lst file /tmp/disks.lst, the /dev/disk0s2 is printed.

    So I've been looking around, is there anyway to change my dock to black easily? I don't want to mess anything up really and I'm on mountain lion (10.8.4). I think it would look incredibly sexy that way.

    Thanks! The black dock looks amazing! Just wondering, my menu bar turned grey and a lot of the fonts are white still so its hard to read, do you any fix for that?

    Yup, go to System Prefs > Desktop & Screen Saver, then uncheck "Translucent menu bar". :)
