    I have been trying to figure out the icon resizing all weekend, and though I don't think I am doing it like the other guys, I have atleast stumbled on atleast one way.

    My question to you, are the icons too small????

    This theme features the 10 icons across the top. The empty area under the icons is a today screen that will display your calender entries and new messages. You can put your message and calender icon anywhere you want, it will work from any position.

    My last theme was a little busy, and didn't seem to be very poplular. I think most folks like simple and functional over alot of flash.

    This will also resize your 3rd party apps, but doesn't have a focus ring around them when you hover over them, but the application name will appear at the bottom.

    I am working on this.

    Tell me what you think.

    Bottom Dock Today

    Icons on bottom.

    A little larger icons.

    No carrier.

    Removed the banner completely.

    Today screen, though not shown, displays 10 entries as pictured above.

    I removed the profile icon at the top to make more room. I never use mine anyway, I always hit "#" or go to icon on app screen.

    Tweaked a few fonts.

    Changed wallpaper so the icons would not be washed out. I know everybody puts their own paper on anyway.

    EDIT 2/27/2009: Today screen font crowding fixed on bottom dock today theme

    awesome theme!!!

    If there is anyway you can make the dock on the bottom and remove the carrier logo (AT&T) and make the top banner a little less wide it would be sweet!!!

    thanks for the theme!

    The Bottom Dock is great. I've been looking for a theme that showed as much calendar detail as possible, and this looks to be the one. You had asked in an earlier post about the icons. They are a little small for my taste, but I like the operation otherwise - a changing today screen, depending on the icon selected.

    Very nice, clean work. Thanks!

    I've got a version with bigger icons, there are 7 and not 10 due to size, and thats my preference I guess. I don't like them real close together.

    I'll finish it up tonight and get it posted.

    Thanks for all the compliments!!!

    I updated the the Bottom version with the larger icons. I did away with the version with the bottom 10 micro icons all together. Just to keep this thread simple. I am liking the larger icons myself.

    I am currently at work, and only have access to a dial-up connection. My FTP client kept timing out due to the slow connection. I am missong my broadband at home. This thing was timing out on 50kbs!!! I had to re-upload a couple of the .cod files because the size on the server and the actual files sizes on my pc didn't match, so I re-uploaded until they matched.

    If you guys have any problems, PLEASE let me know either in this thread or private message, and I'll re-upload in the morning when I get home.

    Thanks again for the compliments.

    love that theme with sooo much info on the screen! gonna keep that one - maybe with one of these nice background picz :-)

    but there's a little issue with the font with german language: the characters with umlaut - and and so on are displayed with the two points just below the upper line.. hope you know what i mean. is this a setting in the theme? also we normaly don't use for ss in switzerland..
