Awesome Awesome Awesome!  Thanks for making this and the vclouds skins, fantastic work!  

I have just one request...is there any way to add a pause/resume button to the slide show, and also make it possible to open the current pic in the system default viewer/editor?

Thank you! I'm glad you like my work.
Unfortunately, I don't have time to add more features to the suit, I only fix new bugs.
I encourage you to try and add it yourself. you can start by checking out resources and the forum at rainmeter.net/

Excellent! It's an instant favorite!
I added to the Recicle Bin skin the left click/empty bin funcionality from gnometer that I found extremely useful. Maybe you can incorporate it in the next official update.

RightMouseUpAction=!Execute [!PluginBang "measureBinItems EmptyBin"]

Why does the Today/Tonight never work?

Ok, on the player front, it looks like that NowPlaying.dll isn't working properly with MusicBee right now. I tried another player and had the same results, but setting up Winamp works perfectly. So that is one thing removed from my small question list. :)

Hey VClouds, awesome work on the skin. I've been working on setting up my desktop. I'm not doing anything special, just setting up a widget bar on the right side of my screen. I'm having a couple of issues though. 

One, is there a way to resize the Gmail object? I'd like the width to be the same size as the smaller objects.
Two, I can't seem to get the player to work with MusicBee. Following the directions in the Rainmeter manual, I set the player in your UI to CAD and refreshed the skin, and refreshed Rainmeter. And even restarted Rainmeter. But to no avail.

Once again, thanks for the great work and keep it up.

Sure, you can resize the gmail skin. the things you need to do are to replace the BackgroundGmail.png with one of the smaller backgrounds from the Resources\Images folder and edit the skin's meters to fit the new size. (change the X and Y coordinates for the items that do not align correctly after you replace the background).

I don't know why but the weather is showing the wrong dates. The rest of the information seems correct. For example, under "Tomorrow" it has the correct high and low temperature but the date it shows is February 25 which is today. And under "Thursday", which is the day after tomorrow, it is Thursday and the forecast is correct but the date it shows is February 26 instead of 27. I'm in Australia.
