Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #2 - Binary ClockIf you are unfamiliar with the binary (base 2) numeral system, you may want to do some reading here before going through the rest of this post.Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #2 - Binary Clock in Personal More Like This
The aim of this skin is to create a binary-coded decimal clock in Rainmeter. To keep this short, we'll just do the hours and minutes (especially since the code for seconds is virtually identical to the minutes anyway).

(package includes several variants - we'll be going through "Decimal_HM.ini")
To begin, we'll need [Rainmeter], [Metadata]
Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a JacketThis is a code walkthrough of my "Do I Need a Jacket?" Rainmeter weather skin. The goal of the skin is to replicate doineedajacket.com in a Rainmeter weather skin, including the ability of the end user to set their own temperature thresholds. Here's a screenshot of what this skin looks like:Rainmeter Code Walkthrough #1 - Do I Need a Jacket in Personal More Like This
First, lets get the basics out of the way. We of course need [Rainmeter], [Metadata], and [Variables] sections.

Rainsweeper by Kaelri is another leap in making Rainmeter do things that no one ever thought possible. Through the use of a clever Lua script Rainsweeper is a clone of the classic Minesweeper game. The ingenious design allows for many features including a GUI options editor, saved high scores, and it has no images or other resource files making it light as it can be.
Thanks for the hard work on another amazing skin!

It's a pretty straightforward CSS, with one special feature, which is the Youtube video that's at the top of every journal. At the moment of writing this journal, it's still a Subscriber-only feature. But if you're still interested in downloading the CSS and using it, here's how you'd edit the video that's shown:

Ladies and Gentlemen
After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.
Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.
In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I
Scaling Bar, Bitmap, Histogram, Rotator ImagesTo accomplish scaling in meters (Bar, Bitmap, Button, Histogram, Rotator), where W and H are used to set the size of the "meter", not the size of the "image", you can use a "universal" TransformationMatrix formula (Formula is by Xanci):Scaling Bar, Bitmap, Histogram, Rotator Images in Personal More Like This
TransformationMatrix = (1 * #Scaler#); 0; 0; (1 * #Scaler#); ((1 - #Scaler#) * [#CURRENTSECTION#: X]); ((1 - #Scaler#) * [#CURRENTSECTION#: Y])
Adding this to your meter, and controlling a new #Scaler# variable, you can easily scale these meters to any desired size.
Here are 3 skins that demonstrate using TransformationMatrix to scale Rotator meters.
One uses modified coding from Rotate an Image Around its Center Tip by Smurfier and JSMorley in the Rainmeter Documentation.
The second one uses a color wheel rotating around the center.
How to skin foobar2000How to skin foobar2000 in Software Reviews More Like This
I've been asked to write a tutorial on skinning foobar2000, because many f2k users encounter difficulties modifying skins or simply using them. I'm not an expert on the subject, I've started by installing a few skins and trying to understand how that worked ; I still think it's the best way to get a good handle on it, though a long and sometimes frustrating way. I invite you to try and see by yourself, to keep in mind that errors come all along and to share any advice, question, difficulty or anything you want to say, may you be new or expert. I also recommend to read this good tutorial (though it's partly based on outdated PanelsUI), maybe this less developed one, some of the very useful Hydr
