OBSIDIAN for RAINMETER by mACrO-lOvE OBSIDIAN for RAINMETER by mACrO-lOvE
UPDATE 1 : Turned the anti aliasing ON on all the widgets, so now the text looks much more smoother.I request you to download the zip file again.

OBSIDIAN for RAINMETER

OBSIDIAN
I present you with OBSIDIAN, a skin for Rainmeter . A complete set of very small and customizable system monitoring widgets for your desktop.

WHAT IS OBSIDIAN?
Obsidian is a naturally occurring volcanic glass formed as an extrusive igneous rock.The name is derived from this because the color of that volcanic glass is Shiny Black & so are the color of the Widgets(Black and Glassy feel to it).

OBSIDIAN SUITE INCLUDES:
1.Clock - Shows the current time in 12-hour (AM-PM) format.
2.Calender - Shows the current date,day,month & year.
3.Drive - Shows the space left in a particular drive.U can change the drive in ini file.
4.Gmail - Shows the number of new mails of your Gmail account.Put your username & password in the ini file.Updates new mails almost instantaneously.
5.Network - Shows the current Upload and Download speeds.
6.Recycle Bin - Shows the items in the bin & their total size.
7.System - Shows the CPU and RAM meters.
8.Weather - Shows the current weather in your city.Put your city code in the ini file.Get the codes from weather.com
9.CAD skin - Matching CAD skin with the above obsidian suite.Not included in the above zip file.Download from here - [link]

Not too bad. Looks like you forgot to use anti-aliasing on a few of the strings, such as in the Gmail config.

4 letters for you, my friend: SOTM, Skin of the Month.

Suggested its inclusion in the RM skins gallery, if you don't mind and just in case no one has asked yet. You might be asked to repack it in rmskin format. Nevertheless, Obsidian deserves a space among other beautiful skins.

Amazing work!

<3 this! I made the title bar transparent and line them up on top, so that they're visible even the windows are maximized.
What's the font besides the meters? Not the Calibri.

Love it.

Out of curiousity why did you only enable Anti-Aliasing text in only the weather portion? I changed mine so that they all have anti-aliasing but i find it a strange design choice.

no it wouldn't work with my 1.0 Rainmeter version
too bad. :(
The newer versions waste to much memory, but this versions memory consumption is acceptable.
