New widget for your desktop.

Steampunk Volume Desktop Widget Mac OS and Windows



Click on the slider and drag it to the left or right and the system volume will increase/decrease.

Click on the mute button and the system sound will mute.

If you change any of the system's sound settings using any other tools the widget will detect this and make changes to the slider accordingly.

It can be resized as you wish. It looks something like this when 100%:

Resized to 50%.



You can get it here: http://rocketdock.com/addon/misc/45672 at Rocketdock, (do vote please).

I aim to create an Xwidget form of this shorty, sorry shortly. The conversion process is underway.

If any of you that have windows Vista/7/8 could test that this widget works for you please let me know, I would really appreciate it. The current version does not control the system volume for Win7/8 systems due to some changes in the way these systems allow apps to control the master volume. It works as intended on XP and Macs. I have to make some changes to the code to allow it to fully function as intended on NT6 systems. Changes will be forthcoming to handle NT6 systems (Vista, 7 and Cool.

Bah! Windows 7/8 humbug...

This is the XWidget version of the Steampunk Volume widget that you could certainly use on your desktop. It is a lovely piece of eye-candy as well as being useful on your desktop. I just finished it today.



Click on the slider and drag it to the left or right and the system volume will increase/decrease.
Click on the mute button and the system sound will mute.



If you change any of the system's sound settings using any other tools the widget will detect this and make changes to the slider accordingly.

It can be resized as you wish.

Full instructions can be found here:  http://lightquick.co.uk/instructions-for-the-steampunk-volume-xwidget.html?Itemid=264

I'll convert a few more of my older widgets to Xwidgets and when I have a screenshot of the Xwidgets running I'll post it.

You can get it here: http://yereverluvinuncleber.deviantart.com/art/XWIDGET-Version-1-0-0-Steampunk-Volume-XWidget-391464126

Of course, this version of the steampunk volume widget does require the Xwidget engine.

Another video of my desktop featuring the resource monitor widget:

Steampunk Resource Monitor Yahoo Desktop Widget


I'll try to make one of each widget.

FYI - I was asked what the music is - The soundtrack sounds like OMD "Sister Mary Says" the single released in 2011 but it is actually a mashup by britestar3 using their track "Heaven is calling" - which you can find here using this code at youtube: - eIKeheQ7Gx4

The music may not be steampunk but the widget definitely is...

If it is a widget you want to create then look here:

http://lightquick.co.uk/how-to-create-a-yahoo-widget.html



If it is the real live device and not a widget then it has certainly been done before. I'm sure someone who has done it would help you if you posted on the appropriate part of the forums.

Why not make both?

I've been working on creating an art deco typewriter-esque desktop, perhaps as if my laptop is powered via old wax capacitors and valves with a veneer of velvet, wood and mother of pearl. I was originally planning on having it printed as a vinyl sticker, but for now it just makes a fun desktop background! I suppose it falls out of the steampunk aesthetic a bit, but it was definately inspired by seeing lots of steampunk desktops around, and the idea of mimicking the look of a fictional old time wooden computer!

The new version of the steampunk clock/calendar is here:


http://lightquick.co.uk/downloads/steampunk-clock-calendar-yahoo-widget.html?Itemid=264

In version 2.6 the real changes provided in the latest version are the ability to properly resize the clock, a new day of the week indicator, the slider animation is much slicker, the slider can now be operated with your mouse scroll wheel, reduced cpu usage overall, lower cpu required by the pendulum swing action, many bugs fixed, slicker operation in general, standard 12 hour clock face, a right click menu with plenty of options and links, more documentation and more back end preferences to configure and play with. Some of the graphics have also been improved upon.

Do download the new version and find the instructions here:
http://lightquick.co.uk/instructions-for-the-steampunk-clock-calendar-2.html?Itemid=264

Sorry I haven't been posting much recently - a family loss. Getting back on stream now.

Steampunk clock/calendar version 2.7 - The screen now acts as a time machine. As you move backwards through time it will display an image appropriate to the year. 23 images are provided, each giving a snapshot in time...

If you place any historical JPEG image in the Contents\Resources folder with the name of the year (eg. 1833.jpg) then it will be displayed when the slider is moved and the appropriate year is reached.

The image needs to be 240 x 196 pixels.

We now have a Steampunk Rotating Earth Widget just here for your delectation and delight:


It can be resized at will:


Instructions: http://lightquick.co.uk/instructions-for-the-steampunk-rotating-earth-widget.html

Download: http://lightquick.co.uk/downloads/steampunk-rotating-earth-widget.html?Itemid=264

Here it is on my desktop overlaying the orrery...


The buttons function to resize, slow or speed up, the reszing bar will disappear if clicked upon. The animation comes from thirty six medium resolution images, played one after the other, frame by frame giving a simulation of the rotating earth.

Check for new versions of this one as changes may be made. Please, do me the biggest favour and vote for it here: http://rocketdock.com/addon/icons/46281

This may not look that steampunk - obviously very Victorian - but in fact the clock tells the time, chimes, the quarters, halves and the o'clocks. It combines a screenshot with a yahoo widget of Big-Ben (the Elizabeth Tower).

Can be found here:

The chap that combined the two is Rochdale and he will supply the background if required. http://rochdale.deviantart.com/

Hi,
New here, and all I can say is wow! Shocked
I'll be playing around with quite a few things found in these posts once I get my custom Komputator rebuilt.

Had to find a replacement motherboard for it, so now I'm in the process of designing a custom desk/case to put it all in from some repurposed oak and other items I've scronged over the years.
Will also be doing my take on a custom keyboard, numeral pad, & trackball as work progresses.

I'll have a few questions, about doing a custom desktop/style when I get it back together.
I'll for sure be using "yereverluvinuncleberts" widgets. Wink

I look forward to seeing it- I've never had time to customise my own machines, I am good with soldering brass &c but woodwork is not my thing, do post pictures of your machine as soon as it starts to look decent (improper to post images of a partially dressed machine)
