Each member can post one desktop in this thread each month.
The desktop cannot be larger than 800x600.
Not only will posting inappropriate desktop pictures get them deleted, it will also get you banned. This includes anything semi-lewd. This is a family forum if it's not PG then don't post it.
Feel free to post the source from which you got your wallpapers, themes, icons, UI modifier apps, etc.

yeah i've watched it about 10 times.
~~the program is called Edgies...pretty much the same as Stickies, but you put them anywhere on the sides like tabs.

Here's mine (http://www.vansmith.net/images/screenshot_06172009.png). Nothing fancy, just Bowtie in the left corner and Terminal updating the locate db. I know Terminal is not part of the desktop but I sure seem to have it open enough.

Nothing special either. I have bowtie too, and alot of icons in my Dock.. :P
I try to keep my desktop nice and tidy. I also liked that picture of the earth that came with the Mac, so I kept it. Of course, I change my desktop background all the time. ;P

It'll drop a screenshot of your desktop on your desktop as a jpg

Nice Wallpaper Brandon, can you give me a link?

Here's my Desktop for June; Again pretty basic I haven't dived into customizing Mac's UI because I like the default so much. The only change is I've got a bunch of castle wallpapers auto-rotating.

Alright s starting at the top i got:

Date:
Day:

date +%A
Date:

date +%d
Month:

date +%B
Time:

date +"%I:%M"
AM/PM:

date +"%p"

And then i played around individually with the size, font and color.

Underneath that i got the Weather:

curl --silent "http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?p=YOURTOWN=c" | grep -E '(Current Conditions:|C<BR)' | sed -e 's/Current Conditions://' -e 's/<br \/>//' -e 's/<b>//' -e 's/<\/b>//' -e 's/<BR \/>//' -e 's///' -e 's/<\/description>//'

In the middle there i got my Song Info:

osascript /Users/COMPUTER-NAME/Music/itunes2.scpt

Which is the location of this script that you gotta save on your drive:

tell application "System Events"
set powerCheck to ((application processes whose (name is equal to "iTunes")) count)
if powerCheck = 0 then
return ""
end if
end tell
tell application "iTunes"
try
set playerstate to (get player state)
end try
if playerstate = paused then
set trackPaused to " (paused)"
else
set trackPaused to ""
end if
if playerstate = stopped then
return "Stopped"
end if
set trackID to the current track
set trackName to the name of trackID
set artistName to the artist of trackID
set albumName to the album of trackID
set totalData to "Track : " & trackName & trackPaused & "
Artist : " & artistName & "
Album : " & albumName
return totalData
end tell

Underneath that i got my Uptime:

uptime | awk '{print "UPTIME : " $3 " " $4 " " $5 " " }'; top -l 1 | awk '/PhysMem/ {print "RAM : " $8 " "}' ; top -l 2 | awk '/CPU usage/ &amp;&amp; NR &gt; 5 {print $6, $7=":", $8, $9="user ", $10, $11="sys ", $12, $13}'

Then the IP:

ifconfig en1 | grep "inet " | awk '{print $2}'

The Drive info:

df -h | grep disk0s3 | awk '{print "Macintosh HD:", $2, "total,", $3, "used,", $4, "remaining"}'

Aaaand the CPU Monitor showing all the running processes:

top -ocpu -FR -l2 -n20 | grep '^....[1234567890] ' | grep -v ' 0.0% ..:' | cut -c 1-24,33-42,64-77

Then i played around with fonts, colors and sizes!
All of them are shell commands. Hope this helps!!:D

Use a program called Geek Tool. Just google it and you will find it, free, its confusing at first for some but once you get the hang of it, you can do all kinds of cool **** with your desktop!
