Steampunk Nixie Tube Clock Yahoo Widget by yereverluvinuncleber
Steampunk Nixie Tube Clock Yahoo Widget
Dieselpunk/Cyberpunk/Steampunk Yahoo thermionic valve nixie tube widget * NEW GRAPHICS  *

That title - what a mouthful! but it is worth saying as it is now fully working! - Latest changes include ability to turn off the sounds and enable the second indicating tubes. It also now resizes. This is a simple widget that displays a continuous time update on your desktop. It is based upon Nixie tubes that were used as status indicators/displays in the 50/60s - 70s. The originals have a character of their own which this widget aims to replicate.

This widget acts as a simple clock upon your desktop and as an extra benefit it is also a moveable bit of eye-candy. It is a fully working widget. Please feel free to download it.

You will, yahoo-widgets-logo.png of course, need Yahoo widgets for this widget to run. Get Yahoo widgets here:
lightquick.co.uk/jdownloads/ya…

and the Mac version here: desktopwidgets.zenfs.com/4.5.2…

This widget runs in XP/Vista/Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS/X. If you have any problems please post your email queries to our contact page. I will endeavour to answer them as soon as I can.

You may use any of my images in your own creations but commercially only with my permission. In all cases I require a credit to the original artist using my name or pseudonym and a link to my own site.

Steampunk QuickBasic 4.5 QB45 Icon by yereverluvinuncleber
Steampunk QuickBasic 4.5 QB45 Icon
This is a steampunk desktop icon that can replace your current Xwidgets icon. I use more than one variant of basic and therefore I need a few similar icons. This one I use for running QB45/Quick Basic the precursor to VisualBasic. Download at the bottom of this page.

Recreated from an image of a Hollerith tabulator, this PNG is larger and has more detail so that you can resize if you wish or use "as-is". This Windows ICO file, MAC, ICNS and finder, PNG icon file are all eminently usable on windows/ Mac OS/X / Linux &c.

This .PNG is larger and has more detail so that you can resize if you wish or use "as-is".
The .ICO file is delivered in 256, 128, 64, 48, 32 and 16 byte formats.
The .ICNS file is available for Mac OS/X
The .HQX file is available for Mac OS/X finder.

The whole cabinet was scratch-built using photoshop.

Suitable for Windows/Linux/Mac OS/X.

Here is just one more over 150 steampunk icons that I have created that will leave your Windows or Mac desktop looking absolutely spiffing. There is a whole set of the little thingies and I must say they do look very steampunk indeed! They really are a suitable replacement for the boring old default icons that come with Rocketdock/ObjectDock &c.

This icon and the others like it will spruce up your desktop and give it a bit of Victorian class. Compatible with MobyDock, ObjectDock, RK Launcher, and your default Windows icons.

To View: - You can see all my icons by clicking here: rocketdock.com/user/107284/add…

To Download : - I have created a couple of steampunk icon sets but you can download the main one here:
rocketdock.com/addon/icons/383…

If you want any new icons then just ask! I am always open to new (or old) ideas - please leave a comment, these icons are quite hard to do and a nice comment makes my day.

Rocketdock Installation: In the rocketdock folder there is a subfolder called icons. Move these icons into that folder or create a subfolder called steampunk icons and copy them in there. Then you simply change each of your individual icon images to any one of these. Easy enough.

The only condition for downloading and using is that you leave feedback. Please leave a message and rate the icons as it is the only payment I get for creating this small desktop addition :D

Thanks! Do enjoy the icon.
Download here, that's it, just there on the right. Ooh yes, that's lovely, thankyou.

XWIDGET Version 1.0.2 Steampunk Volume XWidget by yereverluvinuncleber
XWIDGET Version 1.0.2 Steampunk Volume XWidget
This is the XWidget version of the Steampunk Volume widget that you could certainly use on your desktop. It is a lovely piece of eye-candy as well as being useful on your desktop.

** NEW VERSION **

This is one of a small set of icons/widgets for your desktop, the others are a typical set of Victorian desktop acoutrements. You can control the volume level of your PC desktop by moving the slider or clicking on the mute button. Double-clicking on the widget will cause a personalised Windows application to fire up. The first time you run it there will be no assigned function and so it will state as such - then it will pop up the preferences so that you can enter the command of your choice. The widget takes command line-style commands for windows.

The widget functionality is self-explanatory, tinker with it and you will soon get to grips with it, you can't do any harm. Think of it as a bit of steampunk eye-candy with a useful function.

Click on the slider and drag it to the left or right and the system volume will increase/decrease.

Click on the mute button and the system sound will mute.

If you change any of the system's sound settings using any other tools the widget will detect this and make changes to the slider accordingly.

It can be resized as you wish.

The Steampunk Volume XWidget is a moveable widget that you can move anywhere around the desktop as you require.

The widget is a XWidget and so it needs the Xwidget engine. You can get that here: www.xwidget.com/

Here is just one more of over 250 steampunk icons and widgets that I have created that will leave your Windows or Mac desktop looking absolutely spiffing. There is a whole set of the little thingies and I must say they do look very steampunk indeed! The icons really are a suitable replacement for the boring old default icons that come with Rocketdock/ObjectDock &c.

I report every now and then on the possible alternatives to deviantArt not with the aim of replacing DA but more as adjuncts to DeviantArt. Other sites are perhaps better suited to serving software or other functions whilst DA is focussed on the artistic, visual side. One of these useful sites is Softpedia: www.softpedia.com

Softpedia has been around a while and they are keen on having your software included in their galleries/libraries. I submit mine regularly. The site has been a little clunky in requiring manual intervention on behalf of the publishers in reviewing and testing your software before inclusion but they do it promptly and well. They are well up the search engine listings and putting your software into their hands is a good thing to do if you want exposure.

The gallery has just had a visual makeover and the result is that the gallery is now a lot more appealing than it previously was, my gallery is here:

The site known as Windows7themer may be stealing your themes, packaging them as their own and failing to give you any credits. I found the rainmeter Orrery widget that was created by Mordasius and myself on their site. I politely asked them to provide credits to the original authors and they responded by removing the widget altogether. I think they want to claim those resources as their own and do not wish to give credit where credit is actually due.

The site is here:
windows7themer.com

You might want to contact the site if you find your own work or other artists work there and ask them to give you appropriate credits. If they remove your theme like they did mine then I suppose they just want the credit for themselves. It is rather naughty behaviour and they should be ashamed. Their email address is ivailojotoff @ gmail.com.

I noticed one of Mordasius' themes, there might be others you recognise:

Mordasius' theme can be found here: windows7themer.com/steampunk-w…

My alter ego is yereverluvinunclebert. You'll find me around the web. Where you find steampunk design I won't be far away.

I focus on Steampunk Design, why do I do it?

Well, I can't bear the look and feel of current desktop computing being so locked into a 1980s 'modern' paradigm. Current GUIs deriving mostly from Microsoft's efforts have a basis in the GUIs from the late 80s and early 90s and despite the regular changes they still haven't moved on much. You run XP, Vista, Win 7 or 8? Well, that means under the skin you are still running NT5 or 6, all basically the same o/s. The only real differentiator is the GUI that MS foists upon you. A GUI is a GUI and not the operating system, you should be able to decide which you want to run. A GUI ought to be independent of the o/s or at the very least the o/s should be very easy to theme. This just isn't the case with any Microsoft operating system as the current look is the only thing that really sets it apart.

So, I set out to create a series of widgets and icons for an o/s interface that meets the aims and needs of a small but thoroughly dedicated group of chaps and ladies known as steampunkers.

I have set out my steampunk design skills in this way to demonstrate what I can do.

Whether or not you are a steampunker yourself, with these widgets and icons you can thoroughly steampunk your desktop. If you have a requirement for steampunk or similar retro design then you can contact me for my services.

This is my site where the widgets be...
