Calendar & Events List
These are done with a little calendar program called Rainlendar. You can double-click on a day on the calendar and enter whatever is happening on that date, and it will show up in an 'upcoming events' window on your desktop. Very handy and very customizable.

Clock
The big digital clock is from a program called Yahoo! Widget Engine. Basically it runs in the background, and you can download from 1000s of little desktop tools such as clocks, hard drive space monitors, or buttons for radio stations. If you hit F8, a layer appears over your desktop showing all your widgets. Quite useful, but I only use the program for the digital clock.

Oh, but I do use a widget called Wallspose which changes your desktop wallpaper depending on the time of day

The tray at the bottom of the screen
This is quite handy. I found the Windows taskbar a bit annoying. Luckily I found this orogram called ObjectDock Plus. It's basically a tray that sits at the bottom of your screen and pops up whenever you mouse over it. I've got my most-used programs in there. If I need access to the rest of my computer, I just hit the Windows key on my keyboard.

ObjectDock can also hide the Windows taskbar completely while it is open, which is what I have done.

Lovely. Boerboels are wonderful dogs, and that's not the South African bias talking. My late uncle used to breed them.

Boerboels are definitely very cool dogs. And massive. The most muscular dogs I've ever seen. Kani's still a puppy, so he's a bit of a goofball, but he's a great family dog - patient, loving and protective.

Try right-clicking on My Computer, go to Advanced tab, Performance settings, Visual Effects, Custom, and check "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop".

I can describe my desktop without a screenshot. Dark gray background with no icons. Gray start menu bar. Ultra-minimalist.

I like datebook things, and clocks, and weather and such. Helps with planning world domination

thanks Canadiens for those links, i totally revamped my desktop.... i prefer yahoo day planner over anything because it stores my to-do and events online, i put my school work tasks, classes on there soo i can access it anywhere via http://calendar.yahoo.com/ .. you can make the tasks, events... private or public so you can have families/friends see your schedule if you wanted.

Nice!! The ObjectDock Plus program, is it downloadable or do you have to pay for it? I'd LOVE to make that a reality for my computer. My task bar really bugs me.

Thanks for the information.

ObjectDock+ is $20. There is a free version but it just gives you a single dock.
