The Mans Cave App

The Mans Cave

The Mans Cave was a concept originated long before my time. The men in my family have always had their place of solitude where men could be men and there was no questioning. I now live the city life which means the man cave has been greatly reduced in size. That brought me to create an internet based man cave where all men can join in. Whether geek, gamer, jock, fitness, brewer, BBQ-er, or just looking for a place to read about manly news, you will find a home in the Man Cave

Man Cave Gamer Desktop with Rainmeter Program

Sometimes Gamers and computer geeks meet and make something amazing.  Here in The Man Cave we tried out a program called Rainmeter.  This program customizes your desktop with many features and skins that you can fully customize.  This is a freeware program which means its completely free and opensource so you can find tons of customized skins to download and use for your desktop.  Here is the link for the Rainmeter website:

Here at The Man Cave we whipped up an Assassin's Creed version for our own desktop.  We have been playing the Assassin's Creed series recently and thought it was great theme for our first attempt.  Just a quick note on the game itself, I highly recommend the console versions of the games.  The controls for the PC version can get pretty complicated.  You will notice that we use a custom windows home button with rings around it that give information about the space taken up on our hard-drive along with CPU and RAM usage.  We also have a Gmail skin and a wireless internet info-graph at the top.  On the top you can see 5 day weather forecast skin above our iTunes skin that shows album art and information about the current song.  There is also a skin for our battery percentage and two variations on date and time in the upper and lower right hand corners.  Finally at the bottom you can see a U-torrent info-graph and an area where you can write notes.  We also are using a custom status bar from RocketDock.  Link:

Now that you see what we made with Rainmeter, and other custom desktop freeware, show us your custom desktops that are Man Cave worthy!  Also if you want advice, hints, or tips with the listed freeware programs leave us a comment and we will fill you in on whatever you need.
