OBSIDIAN for RAINMETER

OBSIDIAN
I present you with OBSIDIAN, a skin for Rainmeter . A complete set of very small and customizable system monitoring widgets for your desktop.

WHAT IS OBSIDIAN?
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.The name is derived from this because the color of that volcanic glass is Shiny Black & so are the color of the Widgets(Black and Glassy feel to it).

OBSIDIAN SUITE INCLUDES:
1.Clock - Shows the current time in 12-hour (AM-PM) format.
2.Calender - Shows the current date,day,month & year.
3.Drive - Shows the space left in a particular drive.U can change the drive in ini file.
4.Gmail - Shows the number of new mails of your Gmail account.Put your username & password in the ini file.Updates new mails almost instantaneously.
5.Network - Shows the current Upload and Download speeds.
6.Recycle Bin - Shows the items in the bin & their total size.
7.System - Shows the CPU and RAM meters.
8.Weather - Shows the current weather in your city.Put your city code in the ini file.Get the codes from weather.com
9.CAD skin - Matching CAD skin with the above obsidian suite.Not included in the above zip file.Download from here - [link]

I really like this but can you make the white border around the sections darker or black? The white just doesn't look good with the theme. Thanks.
