Just wanted to post a screeny of a quick mockup for a Rainmeter theme I'm going to be working on. Comments, advice and any useful input is greatly appreciated.

I see we have a Pink Floyd fan . It looks great, keep up the good work!
Agreed! But you'll have to supply your own. Kind of a BYOD.
Thanks, rolmfaoo. Yeah, many a good day spent listening to Pink (which one was Pink? lol). Just basic at the moment. I'll work from a picture for colours of the spectrum and the triangle, etc from here on.

It's looking great, I can't wait to see the final product
Love those colors. I can't wait to be using this blind.
Hey Starcandy. I'm liking the spectrum colors there. I have something I think you'll like. Interested?
OP picture updated. Image is more accurate now and I replaced the transparent black area with a blue. Gonna have a play around after I wake up a bit. Still isn't 'popping' for me yet.
Cheers. Could be a while, but once I get a design down that I'm happy with, it's just coding from there.
Thanks, but it's not a Windowblind, it's a Rainmeter skin. Rainmeter uses modules to give you realtime readouts for hard drives, CPU usage and other things, like THIS. If you want to use it and need any help setting it up, send me a PM and I'll try to help you out.
Okay, show me what you've got. But if it's a picture of you butt-naked and painted spectrum colours, I'm not going to be impressed.
hellsville!!! you never told me you were into pink floyd!! im impressed!
hey, dont let uvah show you nothing, its probably his rainbow flares.... remnants of the 70`s
hmm. would you do me a favour?, can you do an experiment, and try a transparent black glass version, instead of the white one you have going there, and see what
you think? ...just a suggestion but, okay?
but im loving the rainbow colours and overall design...
You mean the entire thing in transparent black instead of just the data readout section?
And yeah, told my brother when I was sixteen that Pink Floyd suck. By eighteen I was totally into them. Of course, I was "dabbling with interesting substances" at the time, lol.
yep, go for it, you probably have to alter the meter bars to match and stuff....(but keep the rainbow colours) i think you know what i mean, i suck at explaining stuff...stupid hello kitty bubble! LOLZ its up to you babe.... either way i know im gonna love it. xx
Brings back some great memories!
First saw Pink Floyd play live in 1967 as support act for Jimi Hendrix.
Still kicking this around.
1. Background transparency at 65%
2. Added 1pixel stroke in black
3. Added opaque top section
'67! Right at the start of their career. Hot damn that must have been a gig and-a-half! They'll have still had Syd with them.
you rock \m/
Ok Mr. Floyd. After this let's test your meddle.
Do a theme for "Several species of small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a pict"!!
That track was really a kind of primitive style of techno, so that would be more up neone6 or Vampy's street I'd guess.
The Dogs of War appeals to me though
It's Miss. Floyd BTW
That spectrum brought back tons of Pink Floyd memories!!
Eagerly awaiting finished results!
Coincedentally, I still listen to Floyd on my ipod while cruising on my Harley. Adds a whole new dimension to the experience, especially when it's "Dark side of the Moon" Love your design concept, that's what I call thinking outside of the box. --Ace --
Thanks for the comments guys. It seems we've got quite a few Floyd fans here.
I call it QED. All sorts of goodies ... colors wheels, spectrum images, etc. etc. Take a look. If you're interested in playing with it I'll be happy to send it your way.
BTW ...... big Pink Floyd fan!
Ever listen to Dark Side of the Moon's soundtrack when synced with The Wizard of OZ? They sync up perfectly!
I believe that im just a fan of deskscapes .... so ... outta it !!
hell yeah! that is one of my faves too, my other fave is "not now john" oh and number 2 is my fave out of all of them xxxx
How about Welcome to the Machine.
Sure, send that bad boy my way. I don't think I'll need it for this theme, but you never know when it may come in handy. Cheers, Uvah!
'Dogs' is probably one of my favourites. I like 'The Wall', but it tends to bring my mood way down. A shame really, 'cause I love singing along to that album. Thanks for the feedback too. I may just make a two or three styles, and people can choose what they want then.
Oooo, could be interesting! I do have plans for another one after this is done though. Something nice and eeeeeeeeeeeeeevil! Gonna need my graphics tablet for that one, but with any luck I'll have that within a week. Yay!
PM me your email address and I'll zip it off to you.
