[Request] Samurize and Rainlender


Recommended Posts

Heya guys!!

I would just like to post up a request for this little nifty program, Serious Samurize: http://www.samurize.com/modules/news/

Samurize is an advanced system monitoring and desktop enhancement engine for Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista. IT professionals, overclockers, gamers and desktop modders alike use Samurize for system information, weather reports, news headlines and much much more. And best of all, Samurize is 100% free!

Samurize's rich feature set includes:

• an unrivalled set of built-in meters (Disk utilization, CPU usage, network traffic, system temperatures...)

• ultimate customizing and skinning possibilities with no programming knowledge required

• monitoring your own computer or others over a network

• tiny memory footprint and CPU usage

• the first system monitoring tool with a true WYSIWYG editor

• full extensibility via scripts and plugins with a powerful plugin SDK/API

• minimal software requirements (no .NET or Service Packs necessary)

• multimonitor support

• many usage options (desktop, taskbar and clock clients, server outputting to XML or image formats, screensaver)

Samurize: The Only Limit Is Your Imagination.

Here is a sample Samurize only desktop: http://lifehacker.com/5043712/roll-your-ow...-sunset-desktop

Also, can you include several popular configuration scripts into the package so we can have a nice and nifty addition to the default package?

I'm asking for something like the configuration files mentioned here: http://lifehacker.com/5087956/customize-yo...-enigma-desktop -- Also, check these out, since these are really nice desktops inspired by customization work: http://lifehacker.com/5101092/engima+inspi...desktop-roundup

As for the other add-on: Rainlender: http://www.rainlendar.net/cms/index.php (nice to have in a install with Samurize.)

Rainlendar Features

Platform independent

Rainlendar can be run on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. All platforms use the same file formats so all skins and scripts created for different versions will work also on all.


Rainlendar supports localization so you can have the user interface in your own language. Rainlendar is an Unicode application so different character sets can be used at the same time.

Standards Compatible

Rainlendar uses standard iCalendar format for it events and tasks to maximize the compatibility with other calendar applications. You can easily transfer the events from the calendar you are currently using to Rainlendar.


The appearance of the calendar can be changed with skins. The skins can be of any shape and size and they can also use scripts for additional functionality. It's also possible to combine different skins by using e.g. the calendar from one skin and event and to do list from another. The events and tasks can have different appearance depending on their category.

Highly Customizable

It is possible to have multiple months visible at the same time. The months can be laid out the way you want and they can even have different sizes.

Multiple Calendars

You can have any number of calendars show at the same time. Different calendars can show e.g. holidays, tv programs, your personal events or what ever you like.

Import & Export

Events and tasks can be transferred to and from other calendar applications. You can also import the data from the old version of Rainlendar.

To do list

In addition to normal events Rainlendar includes a separate to do list where you can store your ongoing tasks.


Get notified in advance before the event is due so that you don't forget any important events. The alarm works with tasks too.


The events and tasks can be made to repeat automatically so you don't have to enter them multiple times. It's also possible to have exceptions in case the event doesn't happen on one particular day.


Lua scripting language makes it possible to extend the functionality of Rainlendar.


Integrated backup and restore functionality makes it easy to make sure your events safe if something bad happens.


Print your events and tasks as a separate list or as a month view.


If you have a lot of events and tasks you can find the one you are looking for easily with the substring search in the Manager dialog.

Here are some nice and brief information about the programs from Lifehacker: http://lifehacker.com/5096769/five-best-de...omization-tools -- scroll/ read around ;)

So what do you think? How about it? THANKS VERY MUCH !! :)
