cntr is a config with system monitors, rss readers, app-launchers, musicplayer, google calendar and weather forecast all organized into one skin over 4 "pages". The skin is extremely easy to edit. Almost all variables can be edited in the options.ini config (rightclick the config, or middlemouseclick it).

For example; choose musicplayer, background image, navigational buttons image and positions, font, colors, rss feeds, weather feeds, meters (bar, histogram, line, roundline, color, opacity). Also comes with presets!

critique, negative and/or positive, is always welcome!

The following have my gratitude:
This skin uses RainRGB4 by JSMorley ([link])
This skin integrates/mods code from JSBarometer by JSMorley ([link])
This skin integrates/mods code from MoxaWeather by MoxaMax ([link])
This skin uses weathericons from Weather for Rainmeter by garbanzox ([link])
This skin integrates/mods code from Gnometer by poiru ([link])
This skin uses a marble background texture by RaphaellaNightfire ([link])

!!If you use Norton AntiVirus you will need to manually clear the RainRGB4.exe file, or else you cannot choose colors from a color wheel!!

The repeated questions you are getting are not the product of stupidity, but of contrast.

If you happen to choose a background color similar to your desktop, the buttons are just not visible (they're rather tiny to begin with).

A bit more contrast would surely cut down on those questions, if that is a concern.

Beyond that, a really elegant skin for Rainmeter.

W O W... You, mate, are amazing. Cntr is by far the most  beatiful RM skin I have seen so far. It is elegant, highly customisable, easy to use, and DEFINITELY pleasing to look at. You should make a tutorial, too, as that would be very appreciated and others would definitely learn a lot. Thank You!

Hello. Thank you very much for the offer, but I don't have the time to implement any big changes; i'm in the army and will be working overtime for a long time to come. I don't know how well you know rainmeter, but if you know how to work the ini files you are welcome to make an italian version and publish it:)

Hi, I'm trying to change the RSS feed urls and I'm having some trouble. I've tried right clicking, middle clicking, shift clicking, left clicking. No matter what I do I can't change them. I've also tried to change them via editing the skin in text edit. HALP PLZ.

Crosseout, this is such a great skin. I've been looking for something like this for a while and it's simply perfect. I love that I can get my GCal feed first thing when I open my laptop because I live on a tight schedule! I'm impressed. Thank you for providing us all with such a great app.

Also, for those (if any) having trouble with GCal, remember to use the following highlighted part of your private xml url

http: //www.google.com/calendar/feeds/username%40gmail.com/private-f1f3a1042s3d4324d24asdadac43fe2a0/basic

I didn't know this at first, but maybe it's just because I'm not too familiar with using GCal with skins.
