Crooked Calendar by xeissirK Crooked Calendar by xeissirK
If you like this config, be sure to check out my Crooked Clock!

UPDATE December 24, 2011
I have released a new version that includes the following languages: English, Spanish, French, German. I have also added additional ini files that prevents you from having to change the angle to get the calendar on the left or right side of the screen.


February 1, 2011
I realized I had a problem with my naming convention which is preventing single digit days from appearing. I re-uploaded the fixed skin, so just re-download and replace the full configuration to repair this in your Rainmeter.

Do not distribute without my permission.

Enjoy!

I noticed early last week that this has been featured in the slideshow on the Rainmeter home page. Thanks to everyone for the views, favorites, and comments!

Today, I am releasing version 2 which allows for rotating and resizing the calendar, and there are also options for use on a dark or a light background.

There are now 4 config files, dark top/bottom and light top/bottom. They are preset to 240x240px at an angle of 0 degrees, but you can edit the config files to make it larger or smaller, or rotate it to 90 degrees for compatibility with the right-hand side of your screen. I believe it looks best between 175 to 650px.

A diagonal Rainmeter calendar intended for usage on the top left corner of the screen. Inspired by the Corner Calendar by FreakQuency85.

Awesome skin, but I get a constant 1% CPU usage with this. Why does something so simple need constant processing power? It's not a huge deal, but I'm curious.

I have no idea why it would be requiring constant resources. I'm not sure if polling the date to see if it has changed would really require that much, since it is just based off of the system clock which a lot of applications use for timestamps.

How can I get the other three styles?
It only gives me the top left one

The current version available starts you out with the top and bottom styles. To change the orientation to fit with the left or the right of your screen, you will need to edit the configuration file and change the angle under the variables. The value must be in degrees for it to work properly.

Making the clock fit on the smaller part should be easy to do. I'll add that to my to-do list.

It's supposed to do that automatically. Are you using the most recent release? I had some bugs with the one submitted in January of this year, so that might be related.

Great config! A small touch of genius staggering the images so that you don't have to define x and y for your meters. =)

Just wanted to let you know that I had to change the name of your "day" images from 1.png, 2.png, 3.png, etc. to 01.png, 02.png, 03.png, etc. This is because the %d format calls up the day by decimal starting from 01.

It would be easy to miss this unless you tested your skin from the first to the ninth of the month. =P

Keep it classy!

Yeah, I just re-released it this morning after I noticed that it was missing on my computer. I had last changed it on the 11th of January so I definitely missed that. Thanks though!

If I release my own theme can I include your skin in my theme? Attributed of course!

I'm asking first, if not, I won't include it.
