Don't see something you were expecting to? PM me if you want a copy of an old favorite. I'm happy to share them around, but didn't feel they were relevant with my more recent uploads.
Minimalist Round Player + Visualizer 0.9
My Minimalist Lite theme got some traction the other day, and I was asked for a standalone version of the music player and visualizer. Find them packaged together within.
It should be pretty plug and play, but you'll need to edit the MP3 variable if you're not using iTunes.

Since this isn't really designed to stand alone, it is hacked together a bit. If you're having trouble with the visualizer, do keep in mind that it's pretty resource intensive. Them's a lot of math.

Change Log:
Half-baked for public use. Enjoy at your own risk. Heed the comments in the code.
See, the title here will be funny in another two years when I neglect to update again.


Hello and welcome back, to the wonderful world of Aethrios. This time around, I'm throwing down a different kind of writing: code!

I've sunk my teeth (quite far) into a fun little application called Rainmeter. If you like to customize your desktop, and you use windows, I suggest you check it out. Even if you don't like what I've made, you'll probably find something out there on the interwebs that will take your fancy. (For those of you who wander over to the Rainmeter forums, you'll find me posting there under the same name. Stop by and say hello!)

The batch of uploads this time around are from the skin sets (layouts) I've been using at home. All of them, except where noted, are totally original. When inspiration or code snippets have been used, credit has been supplied in the "information" section of the metadata.

Feel free to use, browse, and cannibalize. Enjoy.

If this turns out to be particularly popular, or of interest to some people (IE, comment!), then I have some colored alternatives that I can share as well. But if there's no interest expressed, then I'll just refrain for spamming color-copies of the same skins.

Aethrios's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
I have reasonably well repressed desires to write, go to school, scribble doodles and pretty lines of poetry that never get incorporated into anything.

I prefer to write fiction, and have two thirds of a manuscript I (foolishly) dream of having published, but too many other "great ideas" get in the way of making progress.

I am an unabashed self-experiment, and believe that everything can benefit from a liberal dose of science.

I've also been blundering through life with a pile of problems I care to discuss all too much, and as you'll be able to see if you skim any of my uploads, they can be a bit dark. If you don't like it, don't read it.
And I'm completely aware that most of my drawings are simple, somewhat poorly proportioned, and occasionally a complete waste of paper. But I assure you, if that's what you think, there's nothing wrong with that. They are simplistic, deliberately so, because they're made to convey a message rather than be a fantastic stand-alone piece of art.

These pictures and these words are the story of my life from the day I was born, February 1st, 2011.

Of course! It's something I wanted to be able to read over, and it's impacting... something pleasing to dwell on.

Thank you, for writing it.

Thank you so much for the watch. I really appreciate it :tighthug:
Aethrios Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Absolutely! I figured that I check often enough that it'd be faster to just take the watch.

Besides, your writing quality and all that actually warrant it.
