to remove the white background, i use Clear Dock by Unsanity.

the music note is for Synergy. i like this product alot because i can program any command i want to use to change tracks, artists, playlists (and its that window displaying the track information). and it works despite whatever app you might be using.

K....

The song thing I am not sure if that's an add-on to Synergy or if its Konfab or what, I am quiet curious myself. :D

To get a pic of your desktop on here, Get things ready exactly how you want the pic to turn out and hit Command (Apple/Cloverleaf thingy) + Shift + 3

Then if your using Jaguar it goes onto your desktop as jpg, I've heard Panther doesn't... can't say for myself I don't own panther.

(If you don't like this/understand this/whatever | www.versiontracker.com | look for Snap and Drag)

Your icons look very cool. I have been looking into the threads about customizing. Did you have to use a specific program to do that. I know this has been talked about before. I just think they look cool. I'll have to post some of my desktops on here.

is there a way to just apply the icons or do you have to update all of the folders yourself
