Well I started work on a new config last night, as my personal succesor to loadedreality2003. This time I wanted my config to integrate with my background a little bit. So first things first I created the background image. Comprising of two of my photot's I took at Araluen. (visit my DeviantART for all of them) Added a few photo effects and a bit of a glow to make things nice and soft. Then did the rest of the BG design.

The config started off on panels and stuff, but I wanted to get away from this so i removed them, I then started to try and do some PNG overlays ontop of my progress bars to make the grey lines on my BG image like progress bars. I got this working and it honestly looked awesome, but with just a few of my progress bars put in it ran teribly. So another idea rejected..

I then decided to keep things simple and keep my config on the main area of my BG image. Adding and adjusting some things all day (as well as the removal of the Winamp Visualisation, just didnt look right) this is what I came up with.

Special Features
- Headphones image links to winamp.exe
- Winamp controll buttons
- 2 green lights on the modem PNG that actually work! They go on and off depending if my modem is sending/receiving. (this is one of my favorite features)

For the first time I didnt use any histograms or graphs, i wanted to keep things really simple, to fit in with a minimalistic style desktop image. I still dont feel its quite right, so dont be suprised if I upload a whole completley different screenshot in a few days, with a whole new config.

I lowered my desktop resolution to 1280x1024 to do the screenshot but my actual desktop resolution is usually on 1600x1200.
