Medieval GeekTool Desktop

Here’s another desktop theme I made this week. This one’s based on a Book of Hours I saw over in the Bibliodyssey blog, one of my favorite things on all of the internets.

I found all kinds of scripts for converting arabic numbers into Roman numerals, and settled on using a PHP library I found. I'm most familiar with PHP, and it was a simple task to translate the time and IP addresses. With the addition of a replacement function to switch the day and month into Latin I had everything needed for this theme.

I’m pretty fond of this one so I think I will keep it for a while, and maybe switch out the picture every so often. I really have no idea what the next one will be, but I’ll have to come up with another fun problem to solve with scripting.

    Nice work! Would you be willing to share the geektool scripts for the day and month in Latin?
