    Hey...

    I've been working on my desktop for a while now and I've run out of stuff to do and still have a space I'd like to fill left.

    Look in the upper left hand corner, under the y'z dock and above the coolmon stuff. See that space? I want to fill it with something. any ideas?


    Thanks guys, here's the pic

    hey Camasii,

    What script did you use for your TV Listings and Local Wheather?

    Why dont you put up your favourite search engine up on your desktop for easier and quicker to get to.. for example google search

    Heres what i used for Google Search:

    ---- Start Stript -------

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Active Desktop: Google Search</title>
    </head>

    <form action="http://www.google.com/search" name="f" target="_new">
    <input type="hidden" name="hl" value="en">
    <input type="hidden" name="ie" value="ISO-8859-1">

    Google Search<br>
    <input type="text" name="q" maxlength="256" size="55" value=""><br>
    <input type="submit" name="btnG" value="Search">
    <input type="reset" name="btnI" value="Reset ">

    </form>

    </body>
    </html>

    ---- End Script ------

    Hope this helps you.. and i would be greatful for what script you used for your TV Listing and Weather :)

    Sincerly Alex :cool:

    I don't really use any active desktop stuff. the local weather and tv listings are all coolmon. See the stars next to them? For the TV script that cycles from Now, Now + 30 minutes, and Now + 90 minutes. Also the stars on the weather script cycle from tonight\today, tommorow, and the day after.

    :) nifty huh?

    also I don't really have any use for a search engine.. I don't search much :)

    after time with fiddling around with the configuration of the rainlender, i have been able to make the size abit bigger in surface area wise. Ive been able to seperate the numbers much more now than what they used to be.. and to make it seem even more kool, i have put the name of the month in spanish writing.. im sure ill get the hang of that soon enough :p

    So to serperate the number further apart.. right click on the rainlender, and scroll to skins > edit current skin, then Skin Config should come up.. then on the Days tab, underneath the ticked box of 'Enable Days', the two boxes which state 'W:' and 'H:', just fiddle around with different numbers, i got mine on:

    W:180 H:150

    You can mess around with all the other config stuff here too :D

    Just thought id let you know :D

    Considering its 2:40am.. i think ill go to bed now, goodnight
