"And then all at once
The sun starts to rise
She sees her father holding her down
All the daylight is poison to her eyes
She slips down the shade
And lets herself drown"

Miranda - Fleetwood Mac

song picked because I'm quite sick and tired of my miranda (Miranda support forum, lol [link])

Well my first desktop screenshot, lacking quite much and especialy Miranda that I had modded to a degree. And I would very much like to have it back :/

Wallpaper : metamerism by *J3concepts [link]
WB : Malice V2 by *amaeli [link]
Styler : No Work TB Malice Color by *amaeli [link] (same link as above)

Samurize config is EQspectrum by ~TechII [link] (modded by me)

Winamp is Dynamic 1.1 by ~sinan [link]
Minilyrics skin is just winamp's skin (Dynamic 1.1)

Avedesk @ desktop the meters are Vista Drive Icon [link] (modded by me)

All explorer windows icons except the regular folders, PS Tray Factory, seagate HDD (avedesk), D: and E: are modded / made by me

A few of the icons are still pending for the approval of ~chrfb before I can do anything with them, they are based on his eclipse icon sets [link] [link] [link]

Guess that's all folks

of course you can lol :) if you get in trouble I'll cover your ass,

I'm quite low on selfesteem (now or always? hard to tell) so at first I were to hife this message but after scrolling down my messages I found that you (as the second person) faved it and I reconsidered my actions. I'm sorry.

but yeah swear how much you like (even if it's for the bad) I swear alot in regular sppech and just see it as a way to express my self more superlatively (in between tricking my friends to watch goatse.cz or thatsnotsexy.com or just having a good time or laughing at myself when the trap backfires :P goatse is rather unpleasant but i reckon thatsnotsexy is what it says plus faked)

Anyway thanks for the fav it's surely very appreciated

Aincerely Stag

thank you and thanks for the watch :)

as you've showed your interest in me I'm gonna give you a heads up on what I've in mind for further modding, and after talking to people and as I've heard their critique I'm gonna remove almost all the teal and have moree shades of gray and only use colors on subtle details and get a more sophisticated minimalistic look, in theory.

not sure how good it will turn out in practice but I'm quite happy about the grayscale.
all critique greatly encouraged :)

yeah that could have been nice, but all my computer hardware goes in the colors of black, gray and blue with a few exceptions so the colors has to be very subtle or blue(ish) to fit I gather.

i see you went with litestep then lol well im glad you managed to sort your desktop out hehe, actually looks really good i just think it looks abit busy..too much goin on, nice idea tho !

I'm not really sure on the LS part, don't have it.
but I do see your point in that it's crowded, and I'm organizing my rainmeter 'bar' on my off display (left)
and on the right screen, yeah it looks crowded aswell, I've still much to learn when it comes to window posing and I guess it could have been better with less icon promoting and I'm not sure if the winamp main window is helping either.

your thoughts are greatly appreciated :)

np, i always like to keep to a minimal but professional look, im not keen on aero and shadows..i do like the colours they go really well, a style similar to yours would really suit me nicely..personally i wouldnt have the song lyrics on there, and i dnt see any use in a cpu display meter but again thts my personal opinion..well if you change it i would love to see the improvement !

I see your point in the cpu, it rarely goes above 15% when not gaming and I know by heart the way it behaves while running super pi :)
but I find it quite nice to have there nevertheless (I've got friendswho know the lyrics of (almost) all thier songs but as you can conclude from my music harddrive it'd be quite tough for me :P

thanks on the colors :) I've added one new color in my next (current?) desk. think i'll be done with it rather soon.

looks great man! keep tinkering with it. that's what i do. I'm a total tinkerer. :)

yeah, I know what you mean, can't really do anything from scratch but when I start tinkering / modding / thrashing the work of others I can end up with quite good results

I have some imo awesome custom LEGO creations built in the same fashion and I'll take photos of them in time but I don't really know in which category they should be put :) photography/arcitecture or photograpgy/miscellaneous :)

also I went for the straight approch on the cpu and aligned a modified verision of my scrap below , worked out quite good, but not good :)

The HDD icons look very nice :)

PS: I meant to reply here the first time but got confused with the new design of DA ><

Yeah I see what you mean, you camn never guess how many have actually replied to this work at their own works, I posted a cred message linking here at all links and almost everyone replied with feedback on my desk :)

yeah the program is as mentionen vista drive icons with entirely custom icons but at that piic explorer is showing the 'regular' vista drive icons on the regullar hdds and the usb drives but avedesk, set up to show the icon of its target shows my icons for vista drive icon and not until now (maybe 2 or 3 reboots later does explorer too show the correct icons :) )

and yes I'm very happy with the way the icons turned out the meter is modded from darkpain-akh's summerslide rainmeter skin :) [link] and the rest was easy to do in ico FX

Stag

PS I'm new to (the new design of) dA and as you can see it took awhile before I found ou howto edit my deviation :P

bugger :) never knocked on wood and now C: is the only modded hdd in the explorer window, lol
trying to 'rerack' or brute force the icons by moving heaps of random information between the hdds so that the used percent will changeand hopefully change the icon.

if it works? not sure only time will tell *knock on wood*
