2 Shots in 1 day... Wow... I really dont feel like doing any work... ;)

Anyway, still experimenting with geektool. This is an idea I had but not quite sure if it's right yet...

What do you think?? ;)

Cheer,
PL

1. I used dragthing to get the icons on the right
2. The music on the bottom corner is Bowtie. The theme is Zunkunft Condensed.

Hope this helps.

I've been experimenting with something similar myself, so what do I think? I'm diggin' it! :) I've been tinkering with circle based clocks (rotating concentric rings, one for month, day, hour, minutes, seconds) as well as bar clocks (climbing up, falling down, going left, going right), so I guess that leads me to ask... are your bars animated or static in their position? The animated bars are cool but I don't always want that much "action" on my desktop.

Keep it up, I would love to compare notes so maybe I'll get something of mine posted in the next day or two so you can check out my work in progress. :)

Cool. In this screen I've just got static bars but I've been working on a script that generates the bars on the fly with imagemagick. (more info [link]) I do however note that cpu usage is higher than I would like when generating the bars very regularly i.e. having a seconds bar that grows every second.

As far as circular clocks go I'm also tinkering with that idea. I'm working on achieving a clock to match my Neon Volume Indicator (to be released soon) and the Neon Bowtie theme.

Check these screenshots for an idea of what I mean

How are you generating the images?

It would be cool to compare notes :D I hope to release soon but I've had little time lately and progress has slowed down to a crawl unfortunately :D

Oh, and for reference I've actually switched to NerdTool [link] as of late. If you haven't seen it yet then give it a look!

Will you at some point release a geeklet for us to be able to use this?

I've already started working on a script to do just that. Check out Journal entry [link]

Development has slowed down a little because I got side tracked by other scripts and deviations ;) but this one isn't forgotten even though there didn't seem to be to much interest in it.

Hope that's the answer you were looking for ;)

I would love to see it done!

Any chance you could note me upon completion? I am so busy and would miss it if I just devWATCH you (though I will anyway!)

Sure thing. Can't promise you a due date because imagemagick is a pain in the but (albeit a powerful beast!!)

Oh dear lord this is amazing.
I tried Geektool once, but due to my lack of programming and CSS knowledge I knew none of it.

Cool.... SO glad you like it! :D
As far as geektool goes, you don't really need to much programming knowledge to start. There are lots of scripts, geeklets you can use freely.

Remember, start small, think big ;)

Do the lines get longer for each one?

:iconpalobo:
palobo Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2011
Nah, I wish mate. Actually that's a great idea... The lines are just part of the Wall. I adjusted the geektool scripts to overlap in the desired position...

But I must look into your sugestion... Loved it ;)

That is AMAZING! The only problem is that you need a high-res screen to work, and i have a MBP 13'' :( But still, thats a GREAT shot!

Thanks. As far as screen res goes, that why I didn't get the MBP 13" ;)

Hmm yeah, but im not 18 yet and my skills on the computer aren't good enough to even think of spending money on that type of mac. And even if i could connect it to my tv, it would just defeat the point of having a MACBOOK in the first place. Besides, 13 inches and 1280*800 with a LED isn't too bad..
