The first skin of the month is online. In the first voting for a SOTM, 'Aranea' by bendenfield won. We have uploaded his suite to our account in order to increase his audience on his Halloween suite. Take your own look on it here. We are proud to call him the first winner of a SOTM ever. From what we heard from him, he is very happy and wants to thank all who voted for his 'Aranea' (and believe us, we stay very close to him (: ).
Skin Of The Month - November 2009
While the voting for the first SOTM has ended only a few hours ago, the current SOTM has passed the half of it's suggestions phase. There are currently only three suites/skins listed, but as we saw in the first one, the most suggestions are made in the last quarter of the suggestions time, so we have no reason to panic. Just take a look over

When I first started using Rainmeter I scoured Deviant Art for skins that fit what I was looking for. I didn’t find any. So I ended up dissecting skins, reading the help file, and discovered that it’s not nearly as complicated as it looks.
The goal of this series is to show how easy it is to make your own skins. I’ll be showing simple skins and code and talking about everything from basic skin creation to some of the more complicated things you can do with Rainmeter.
MAKING A NOTES SKIN
The skin I’ll be demonstrating is probably the simplest notes skin you can create. The skin is fundamentally made by combining different blocks of code. Each block as its own unique name. Each block of code is either a Measure or a Meter. Measures can be thought as a piece of code that stores information, and a Meter is one that displays something. The skin also shows the use of several different features, all of which I’m going to explain. These fea
Rainmeter Workshop - 2I'm very pleased with the encouragement that the first Rainmeter Workshop got. I'm even happier with people's questions and requests. Last time I was asked to do a Winamp skin, talk more about String meters, and elaborate on measures. If you want me to cover a topic, just ask in the comments. Without further ado:Rainmeter Workshop - 2 in Personal More Like This
Winamp Skin Tutorial
I'll skip the introduction and the basics this time since I covered them pretty well last time. This skin demonstrates using Plugins, drawing circles, using Calc measures. I'll also talk more in depth about using measures and String meters. This is a much more complicated skin than last time. Every Winamp skin that displays time has a heavy emphasis on Calc measures; this one is no different.
-Nothing has changed from last time.
-SOLIDCOLOR defines the background color, in this case black, and COLOR defines the Text color and the progress bar color. HEIGHT defines the FontSize and NAME defines
Rainmeter Workshop: Autoscaling and YouI've been beating my head against a wall working on a new suite. The hardest, and most tedious thing has been making the skins resizable. It involves a lot of simple math, and trial and error. Over the course of the next few Workshops I'm going to share some of the things that I've learned about resizing skins, as well as other cool things to do with position formulas and dynamic variables. They'll start off pretty basic and work towards more complicated topics.Rainmeter Workshop: Autoscaling and You in Personal More Like This
I keep seeing taskbar skins that fit only one specific desktop resolution. It's possible to make a skin fit any resolution, and usually it's fairly simple. A decent grasp on simple algebra, geometry and arithmetic helps greatly though. The taskbar below fits any resolution. I'm assuming that you're somewhat familiar with Rainmet

Brains started smoking about what the best way it would be to represent Rainmeter on devART. Finally we got it to manage and came up with the first Rainmeter group on devART ever.
For those of you who don't know what Rainmeter is: Well, actually we always were living side by side with you, since devART has an own category for Rainmeter deviations. By having a look into it, you will probably notice, that it has something to do with desktop customization. And that's it! With Rainmeter you can empower your desktop with an expandable library of useful tools handy notes and application launchers, weather and feeds from the web, system status and
Rainmeter Résumé Vol.2The new Rainmeter.Rainmeter Résumé Vol.2 in Art Features More Like This
We all expected it for so long. Finally it is here. The new 1.1 version of Rainmeter is out and brings some really big and handy improvements along.
One of the major improvements are the dynamic variables. They allow you to use measures as variables. The ones who are already a bit into skinning know that this is a great improvement that will make many things much easier. Additionally a bang called !RainmeterSetVariable was added allowing you to change variables with a simple bang. Creating nice looking hover effects does not require more than one meter any longer.
The RainBrowser - we told you about it in the last résumé - is now included in Rainmeter as well as RainThemes. Both were created by jsmorley and you can run them from the Rainmeter tray menu.
One more improvement is that by 'quoting' images the aspectratio is now being reserved, so that no quality loss happens.
Furthermore Rainmeter can now use local fonts. That means that you don't h

The main difference between the Western and Chinese zodiacs is that in the West, each month of the year has its own sign, whereas the Chinese zodiac is made up of 12–year cycles, with each year having its own sign.
The date of the Chinese New Year differs annually, reflecting the second new moon after the winter solace, (falling usually between January 21 and February 19).

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

I Am Not a Real Woman?I see a lot of obese women posting pictures of their bodies, and getting endless praise for being "brave" "confident" and "a REAL woman".I Am Not a Real Woman? in Personal More Like This
I am a real woman, too. But when I post pictures of my skinny body, I get insulted and harassed.
I am a model. I go to photo shoots and get made-up, lit-up, and photo-shopped. Then I go home, and I have a real life, and real problems, and real feelings.
I love my body, but I do not promote my emaciated look as a beauty ideal. Yet, I get slammed continuously for glorifying an unhealthy standard. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of people die of obesity each year, but we continue to promote obesity as "normal" "beautiful" and "real".
I don't really care what you're into or whether or not I embody it. There's no reason to be so disrespectful to others about body image, ever. Everyone should love their body, and everyone should strive for optimum health.
That is all.

Can you please tell me what this website is called again? What? It's not "highART", or "fineART". Really?? It is called deviantART? Well then,..I must be in the wrong place, you see, I have been arguing all along that this was fine art, I had no idea that this is where you would find deviant art. Maybe I was just a little confused because I thought "deviant" meant complying with the norm, socially and sexually. What? It means the opposite? So let me get this straight,...deviantArt literally means:
Art that departs from usual or accepted standards, esp. in social or sexual behavior.
Well thank you for helping me get straightened out,..I will close my account immediately and post all of these pictures on Facebook.
