The Gingerbread Announcer Desktop

Reader andykashyap85’s Mac desktop proves that sometimes simplicity is all you really need for an awesome desktop that helps keep you motivated.

The simple OS X desktop consists of nothing more than:

  • Wallpaper: Announcement
  • Geektool Quote of the Day: curl -s http://www.dailyzen.com/ | sed -n “/<!–Add Quote for correct day–>/,/</TD>/p”|sed -e “s/<[^>] *>//g” |strings|fold -sw60
  • Geektool Time: date +%D
  • VLC Icon
  • See Andy’s full post for more details.
