Windows 7: beautiful _ chameleon glass gadgets

beautiful _ chameleon glass gadgets


I'm in the process of customizing my Windows 7 these days.
First of all I have finally installed my very first theme: glass onion
Then I have done some miscellaneous stuff:

1. changing the icons step by step
2. changing the boring welcome & shutting down screen
3. changing the start up & shutting down sound
4. installing a very nice collection of gadgets

... they're called chameleon glass gadgets and they match perfectly to the glass onion theme, because both have sharp corners: the windows and the gadgets. Looks so clean and neat.

As happy as I am about them, I still see space for improvements though.

1. Calendar
resizable desktop calendar
I wish days and months would start with capital letters.

2. Clock
analogue desktop clock
Beautiful! Doesn't match to the other gadgets, but that's fine.

3. Control
shutdown, restart or lock your pc from the desktop
Sorry, I don't like this one

4. CPU
monitor the cpu and ram load of your rig
I don't like the analog display of CPU & RAM usage
Could have been done better with digits and bars, I think.

5. digital clock
digital clock with am/pm, 24h and alarm function
I think the (Alarm Off 00:00) message spoils the clean look

6. email
check your pop3 account for new mail
Very nice, unfortunately my current provider doesn't offer pop3.

7. netbars
monitor your bandwidth usage through a graphical bar
Awesome !! One of the best things I have seen so far.

8. netstats
monitor your bandwidth usage through textual info

9. notes color
coloured postit notes
cool, just would like to change font & size

10. notes white
white postit notes

11. one drive
monitor free space for any drive on your pc
Quite like that one. You can open multiple instances

12. radio
listen live to DI or SKY fm streams, or add streams yourself
Awesome !! Would still like to change the optic a little.

13. recycle bin
with spinning recycle icon when full
I like this one more than the default rubbish bin.

14. stats
shows online/offline state, uptime, localIP, date, wifi strength, battery status
Not so useful for me.

15. weather
shows current weather conditions + a 5 day weather forcast in the flyout
Excellent, but I don't see how to get the forcast.

Any chance for me to get some of these gadgets modified?

neon gauges _ beautiful gadgets
Hi, I find the neon gauges absolutely beautiful. In the widget preferences you have extensive options for them to be customized. Only condition for these gadgets to run is that you install Yahoo! Widgets application first. Don't really understand why you can't just add them to your usual Windows...
full glass/black glass transparency levels
i'm a huge fan of black glass/full glass but its a bit TOO clear/transparent for me. is there any way to darken/blur, the transparency? i've tried playing around with the window color option, but it makes little to no difference.
