ImportantStuff.txt opened in notepad by double-click on title. Semi-transparency provided by AHK macro. An AHK macro allows appending a line to the file w/o notepad.
The Story: This was once a microsoft wallpaper. All that remains is the green hill. I used GIMP to replace the sky with something more colorful. This is also the fourth screen (number 3) in my Yodm3D desktop rotation. I used GIMP to add in the three standing stones as a navigational aid. I like the ability to get basic information at a glance, hence the Rainlendar calendar and todo items. Also, I use Samurize to keep some basic system performance info on the desktop, as well as a crypto-clock and to manage my important stuff list. In this capture that list is available for editing in notepad (using an AHK macro). I think I have since reduced the transparency, because this looks cool, but is a pain to use.
