I keep having the want to tell the community about new software or customization tricks so I'll just keep updating this post rather than starting new ones all the time.
1. New Logon Animation for Windows 7
I came across this tweak the other day and I figured it needed to be shared with the wincustomize community. ~alexandru-r-ghinea made a new version of the windows 7 logon UI. It's pretty cool, and easy to install.
Download the file in the info section (it's safe, I did it.) Then just back up the old authui.dll file in windows/system32, rename it, and replace it with the downloaded one. You can also install to C:/temp and then run the batch file, but I've heard of people having problems with this approach. There is a embedded windows flag version, and a version without a flag too. There is an animation when you log in, it's kind of interesting.
Here's the link:
New Logon Animation
You can still tweak the background with logonstudio, this just changes the logon UI. I'm using it now, and it's refreshing to see something a little different when I log on.
2. Trillian 5 beta released
Trillian 5 beta is now available for windows download. It's a multi protocol social client that is very powerful. The GUI is much improved and there are many new features. Anyone who's used trillian knows it's a great program. Try it out:

3. Senary Iconpackage by 'Arrioch
I came across this iconpackage today and it's one of the most impressive one's I've seen. 'Arrioch is a very talented artist over at DA, specializing in icon development. I got permission to give a link to the iconpackage. I strongly suggest downloading this one, it's definitely worth it.

4. You gotta try this!!! The Web Genius
So I found this "game" on gizmodo this morning and I've been trying to beat it all day! It's almost like playing against someone who's REALLY good at 20 questions. So far it's guessed Nikola Tesla, Timmy's dad from The Fairly Oddparents, Shaun white, max weinberg, steve jobs, toucan sam, Sebastian (The Little Mermaid), Myself, and Secret Squirrel!!!
Maybe I'm just not creative enough, but this is really fun. Worth a try.
