Wow..... Man, I'm looking forward to the RSS and WinAmp functions now. This is absolutely incredible. Well done.

Very nice object
Comment #3 Saturday, June 26, 2004 5:12 AM
Great work!!!
Comment #4 Saturday, June 26, 2004 5:36 AM
looks great, but i have an issue... all the information in every mode is half out of the object. to the right.

any ideas?
Comment #5 Friday, June 25, 2004 4:05 PM

Yeah, the clean look is better, figured I'd mention it just for the heck of it

This object now occupies a prominent spot on my desktop

Wow!! I don't even use DesktopX but I loaded it up just see this and this is one of the best objects I have seen. Very nice graphics, the animation is really cool and it's a very usefull little tool. Any chace of doing this as a widget? Thanks, you are obviously very talented

Superb, as usual and thanks for sharing your talents! Innovative idea! Get tired of docks and seperate items for all you've included in this. Really great idea! I agree with others a media player addition tops my list. An additional button to start/hide sysmetrix would be nice too but, you don't want too much (imho) or you end up with a dock. Anywho, superb effort and idea! Can't wait for a light/dark WB to match......

Outstanding object..well done as everyone else is saying. One suggestion I would like which is very useful is make it a talking clock so it can tell you the time while you are working on other projects. Maybe like the RG111 clock object? Anyway, great work!!
Comment #9 Monday, June 28, 2004 2:56 PM
you are absolutely right with this suggestion. I agree with you.
Comment #10 Monday, June 28, 2004 3:13 PM
This is awesome! Your entries are consistently cutting edge. Any chance you could add the alpha blending background features of your other killer objects ?
Comment #11 Friday, June 25, 2004 10:53 AM
This is pure greatness (as usual)..
One suggestion/wish that I think would be awesome. Is there anyway to add a feature that would automatically alternate between each function? There is so much in this package I like, I hate to leave it on one section too long!!

Thanks for asking, I'm working on a suite (or something similar) but very slowly because I don't have much time.

4letterword - thanks
EnsRegis - it's coming m8, I promise
Herman - does the object forget your location immediately after you save the theme? There is a bit of a bug with dx that causes this slightly irritating behaviour. I never save my theme as a theme, so I avoid this foible, I save my objects out individually. Sorry about that, but it's kind of beyond my control
f0r3 - yeah the arrow points in the direction the wind is blowing, or at least it does on my one. If the text says E then the arrow should be pointing towards the west. If it reads SSE, it should be pointing to NNW. I just checked the script and there really shouldnt be any way for a wind defined as "E" to make the arrow point south. A reading of "E" corresponds to an object rotation of 90 degrees (as defined in the script) which should cause the arrow to point to the west

Tiggz: Thanks. Right now I'm using , which is an absolutely beautiful skin. I'm looking forward to the new one.
Comment #15 Thursday, July 01, 2004 7:34 AM
Hmmm, I'll have to keep my eye on it then.. At the moment the wind is calm so I'll have to wait till there's some wind to actually talk about.. Regardless it's an awesome object!!
Comment #16 Thursday, July 01, 2004 8:34 AM
Tiggz: I think you are right. Although it seems intermittent, I think it happens sometime after I make a save. Then I re-enter the zipcode and it works fine. Thanks and excellent work!
Comment #17 Thursday, July 01, 2004 11:30 AM
Thanks EnsRegis, I will get round to it
f0r3 - I'm keeping my eye on it too, between us we can catch it being rascally and try and identify the error, if any
Herman - I might experiment with storing the location in the actual text of a hidden text object - it's not quite as elegant as using persiststorage variables but I think it might eliminate this particular problem. If it works I will update and leave a comment saying what I've done...
Comment #18 Friday, June 25, 2004 10:26 AM
very slick
Comment #19 Friday, June 25, 2004 9:50 AM
I would say something, but my jaw has landed on the floor and is spilling drool.

Aleatoric - distant relation perhaps, but still on the Christmas card list and a welcome guest any time I might make the remote hideable if I can find a cunning way to do it (I dont want any buttons on the main object, it needs that clean look imo). The wb progress has taken a slight hiatus whilst I was doing this and the sysmetrix, but hopefully I can get it done in the next week or two. Unfortunately I am not one of those peeps who can just knock one off over the weekend
Thankyou Marcelo - when can we expect to see something new from you?
PhrozenMenace - I am very relieved that it is not on the chain
Cheers werewolf, I appreciate you taking the time to comment.
Thankyou Nutshell.
hehe Xav, thanks for not commenting
glowdark - yep, the K-TEK silver wb as previewable in my profile is a light skin and designed to be easy to read - the dark version may be a little more obscure for those of us who like that sort of thing. Hopefully the best of both worlds all in all.
BallzyBadAss - I fully intend to make an expanded version of this object with such added features as a mediaplayer, mail checker, maybe a news feed, maybe a simple random animation screen or something...probably as a seperate upload so peeps can have the choice between the lite and "heavy" version.
Wildharp! Hi, thanks for commenting Sometimes these darn desktops just get too jammed up with seperate objects, so I thought I would do some consolidation
DigitalCHET - wow, I don't think I ever did that to anyone before LOL
Cheers CerebroJD - glad you like it, I do too, I think it's one of the prettiest things I've made to date. I spent quite a while on the graphics, simple tho they may be, trying to get them "just so", and learned a few new techniques into the bargain, so it's all good!
My pleasure Jamie, glad you like it

wow, I need a small nap after that...
