"Maybe he would like to weigh in on how best visually to add the Hebrew date to his existing clock skin. Perhaps have it "toggle" between Gregorian and Hebrew date formats every 10 seconds or something."

Basically I need time, with seconds, Hebrew/Gregorian date, and Local Weather.
Maybe the windows telling me how stressed my system is.

I saw your discussion on the Rainmeter Forum and will look into these changes for you.
I posted a variant clock skin code in the Rainmeter Forum thread.

Here is a link to that post:…

Very nice! I like it a lot. But leaves users with regular screens with 2px outline :D
Maybe combine two shapes (background and outline) so that the background covers half of the 2px outline on regular screens?

The space around skins is intentional; it is actually 4 pixels on every side... 8 between adjacent skins.

Send me a PM if you are seeing something undesirable on the display...

No no, I am not talking about the space, I was saying about the black outline around the background.
Eclectic-Tech's avatar
I'm not seeing that. The background IS 1 shape; the black outline is the shape stroke with a semi-transparent fill color. There is nothing to combine!?

Almost everything I wanted in an ilustro update!  Beautiful job!
Eclectic-Tech's avatar

This came about due to several people wanting to use illustro on high resolution displays and concerns about scale-ability of Rainmeter skins...

Glad you like it!
