In my culture as well - and probably others. Here it's similar to "The good thought comes last", basically transmitting the same thing, that wisdom comes after properly thinking about something. It's easy to forget these things in a world always in a hurry nowadays, though - but it's still better than not acknowledging the truth in that popular statement, like some (younger) people usually do. Fortunately, the latter is not the case here, LOL.

And hello Yincognito, it's been a long time :welcome:

No, I think death.crafter actually meant "creating music" using such .wav sounds, not really playing existing .mp3 music, as the latter is pretty common in Rainmeter skins - including my own. :)

Yeah, but that skin isn't really using Rainmeter to play the music...

Actually I meant making a rainmeter music player... But I guess I was wrong. Tho that skin doesn't work, and that doesn't make use of PlayLoop bang, that is a valid music player.

Aahhh, I understand what you meant now. Yeah, Rainmeter by itself doesn't play stuff, it just passes them to Windows, Winamp, Spotify and others - no reason to reinvent the wheel here. The only similar place where Rainmeter actually - and partially - does the job instead of other specialized software is "playing" and "drawing" image frames in skins (like displaying, cropping, rotating, or even having to extract GIF frames into an image sequence or a "filmstrip" bitmap instead of "playing" the GIF itself).
