RainMeter

Post by aktiwers » 11/01/09, 4:03 pm

I found this for Windows, that I thought you guys would like.

Rainmeter is a Windows customization application. Empower your desktop with an expandable library of useful tools – handy notes and application launchers, weather and feeds from the web, system status and more. Then, rearrange and modify them to suit your personal style. With Rainmeter, your desktop is finally yours.

And yes, Rainmeter can measure, among other things, how much it rained last night. ;)

I have not tested it yet, but it looks interesting :)

I'm surprised this wasn't on Shellcity......I used it some years ago...initially. Might have had a slightly different name.

It's been on and off, John. Got cleared away during a Link-check most likely.

What's up with Plastic anyway? Seems pretty dead over there.

I think Plastic must have something thats keeping him mighty busy. Thankful the site still has some breath in it. I still go from time to time. My 4 Favorite sites in the days were,ShellCity,VirtualPlastic. LiteStep and Skinz.org.....

I've had an on and off relationship with rainmeter. Its been good fun. Not using it anywhere atm but when I do feel like putting it back on one of my PCs I get stuck into writing up me own apps for it.
