here's my entry for screenshot competition '10 over at pixelfuckers, which i ended up winning :)
i don't think i spent too much time on it this year.
operating system - windows xp sp2
visual style - deep mod of area o4 by heylove
litestep - me, built on top of this theme
wallpaper - from iamfreeman's 'black background' set, i brightened it a little
icons - blank
firefox - custom theme, userchrome.css, & start page
mirc - running nnscript, theme by me
resource hacks - explorer menu bar, notepad
miranda - clist_classic, srmm_mite, icons by me
zeed image viewer - image from this post over at stax&cane
other apps - y'z shadow, runboxxx
fonts - helvetica condensed, blank
the widgets are all done with samurize. i have them each running as a separate instance so they can all be hidden/shown with a different hotkey. it's actually surprisingly light.
you can view this on deviantart as well :)
it's also been featured on lifehacker!
