A somewhat customized Rainmeter desktop and first time ever. Used different skins. Tried to achieve the effect of an open book and printed text. Icons were really helpful from Pileus suite and the font. I am in love with the font (Times New Yorker).

That it is one great idea!
How did you get this text in time and date skin? ("The time is ... at night ......") Or can you just paste the code...

word of advice:

get rid of the icons up in the top left, they look out of place. Other than that, you have a great setup that is drool worthy!

Thanks for the comment.

Yes, your are right, I should have. Was the first time with Rainmeter, was improvising.

Hey what cpu monitor are you using? I have been looking for one that also measures temp, and it looks like yours does. Unless those are separate... in that case what skin are those two coming from? Great looking desk, and great font!

Hi Sarge721,

Thank you. Yes, both are separate, but I used the same font for the temperature as well as CPU monitor, so it looks like they are one.

CPU monitor is "PileusDualSystem" from "Pileus suite." A little change in the script so that it would monitor 4 cores and the icon to "cube." The temperature monitor comes from "Dark.Eve suite," and I changed the graph color and font to match with other skins in the theme. Font is "Times New Yorker."
