I like it, it reminds me of Rainmeter but custom-built. What did you use to make it?

Oh my goodness! Rainmeter! Isn't that a blast from the past! I used to love that thing. Perhaps there may have been some sub conscience influence there?

I made mine in an F# console app.

A blast from the past indeed! It helped quench my thirst for customization on Windows before I moved to Unix. I used to love the "Should I wear a jacket?" widget.

Looking at Rainmeter again, it seems like it has come a long way since I used it last. Might have to try it again.

Yeah, I haven't touched it in a while as well. Seems like there's some quite advanced community setups available
