What's the 2nd icon from the left in your dock?

Oh, and think you have enough stuff in your menu bar? :P :D

digitalscrap
12-08-2007, 04:23 PM
The second icon is for my absolutely favorite application, Quicksilver. There's actually no reason at all for the icon to be in my dock, but I love the application so much, I still have the dock icon there. lol

;) on the menu bar... From left to right - MainMenu, Bluetooth, .Mac Sync, iStat CPU monitors, iStat Temp (and no, that's not Celsius... ;) ), iStat network monitor, and Airport. Everyone always laughs at my menu bar. :) I like having everything available with a quick glance.

For those who like the dock and are running Leopard, you can get some great dock themes at LeopardDocks.com (http://leoparddocks.com) - I modified this one slightly, but it started out as "CoffeeTable Rounded" I believe.

Thanks Saxnbass.... found the site but when I tried to do a swap the dock section was grayed out and I was unable to access it.

To make it really easy, you can use the Automator script located here: http://www.leoparddocks.com/download/ChangeDock.zip

I'd advise you to back up your existing files first in case you decide you want to go back to the original Leopard Dock.

Go to System>Library>CoreServices do a "Show Contents" on Dock. Now go to Contents>Resources and back up frontline.png, scurve-l.png, scurve-m.png, scurve-sm.png, scurve-xl.png, and separator.png. Just copy them to a folder somewhere on your drive. Download the dock you want, run the Automator script above, point it to the folder that contains the new dock files you want, and you're set! :)

How'd you get your dock to look like it does when its positioned left but at the bottom? I hate the stupid reflecting 3d dock.

Edit:: Never Mind, I figured it out!

This is awesome.

I actually have it set to change every 5 seconds. The picture is the same, but the eye color is different. So, when watching it, the only thing that actually changes is the eye color. Below are some examples.
