Why Another Rainmeter Skin

Screenshot_It Is One_Simple_Layout Screenshot_It Is One_Full_Layout

It Is One – Version 1

Because I can. Making Rainmeter skins wasn’t something I was born to do. Once I understood
the basic’s of the “lua” code, I knew I could make a skin and be proud of my work.

By far I’m not the best rainmeter skin maker. There are plenty of skin creator’s out there.
You can find some at and . But, before you head over to any
go ahead and grab my skin, , that’s why you’re here, right.

And while you’re here, head on over to my Rainmeter skins for more skins.

If you need to get the Rainmeter software, you can head on over to the Rainmeter
and grab the latest version.

Thanks for your interest. Happy skin creation’s. You can find AST at –

Why This Wasn’t The Last Rainmeter Skin

Yup, I did it. I made another Rainmeter skin. Star Trek 4 Desktop-PC is now available.

The holidays came rolling around and I got bored, so I made this rainmeter skin.
After much thought, I may make version five, -but- that decision isn’t set in stone as of yet.

This Star Trek skin isn’t related to any known Star Trek computer console layout.
As this skin was being built it took on this look and feel.

All skins are button activated and deactivated.
Comes with one themepack in the root folder.

After further study, I have concluded, I could have done better with this skin.
But, since I’m tired and want to move on from skins, I have released OS 8n10 as is.

…crawling in my skin…

Why OS 8 Wasn’t The Last Rainmeter Skin

OS 10_ScreenShot 01_Online OS 10_ScreenShot 02_Online

OS 10 is why OS 8 wasn’t my last Skin!

After the creation of OS 8, I continued to create a better version of OS 8 and will be releasing
OS 10 soon. OS 10 will include 2 Windows 7 .themepacks, (OS 8 Themepack – OS 10 Themepack) and 2 screensavers,  (ScreenSaverSetup OS 8 1 3.exe – Setup OS 10.exe)

As well as the skin itself and a whole lot of meters.
