Noob with a plan!

Hello Rainmeter Peeps!

I'm not a complete noob at RM - I had some very basic functions on my last PC, a few bits and pieces as a sidebar as you can see in this screenshot -

Thing is, I've just built myself a spangly new i7 PC - :sly:

I want to monitor every last little thing it does! And in a stroke of luck, work was throwing out an old display - even though it was in perfect working order.

So, my plan is thus - have the two lower displays as general purpose working areas, but devoid of icons and shortcuts. Have the (new) upper display as a dashboard relaying every last little bit of info I can squeeze out of the PC, and perhaps one or two controls for things like power and Control Panel.

I don't have any concrete ideas of how I want it to look, but I favour a more industrial feel rather the Sci-Fi theme of a lot of RM skins. (Even though I'm a big fan of Sci-Fi!)

I have a lot of learning to do, but I'm looking forward to it. I'm sure all you folks here will give me good guidance when I'm bashing my head off brick walls!

Cheers,
Schmeeky
