What's new:
- I've changed the wallpaper. And I love it.
- I've fixed a small bug in the weather meter.

UPDATE 5/04/09 8:45pm

What's new:
- I've changed the wallpaper to be a bit brighter. This is because the previous wallpaper looked like crap when it's was a thumbnail.
- I've fixed a small bug in the battery meter. It was doing some weird stuff after taking my computer out of hibernation.
- I've also made the sidebar's top right corner rounded, per gschoppe's request.

The Story
I recently came to the realization that I had many rainmeter meters running on my desktop that I actually had no use for. This was making my desktop look cluttered, as well as causing rainmeter to hog my CPU. So I took everything that I never used off my desktop and started working on creating a functional, as well as good looking, desktop.


Rainmeter Changes
- Since I am constantly using my RSS multimeter, I decided to double it's size, as well as add more "tabs"

- I like using my weather meter occasionally, but I realized that to make it fit with the other meters, I'd have to make it vertical

- I constantly keep an eye on my HDD space (so I know when it's time to "clean up") so I decided to design a HDD meter based off of the HUDvision HDD meter

- I realized that, although the calendar meter was nice, it took up too much room for my liking. So I shrunk it to fit with my weather meter and my HDD meter.

- As for the bottom bar, it's always visible so I always have access to my battery usage, programs, and time.
