WindowMaker: Show off your WMaker desktop

I have completely migrated to WindoMaker as my main desktop now. My problem is I end up spending alot of time adding/removing/switching dockapps and docked apps, themes, etc just because I can :P Now I'm curious on how your WM desktop looks like and what are your favorite apps, progs, mods that you use on it? In short: Show off your Bling!

Btw: Here's how my desktop looked like yesterday (not anymore :P)
Theme=WO from the WMaker theme package, dock removed, application icons disabled, apps are minimized to the top right of the desktop, clip misused as a dock, running 4 instances of wmdrawer, wmweather, wmtictactoe, wmmemload, wmetload, wmclockmon, wmix, wmsystemtray, wmdockapp icon misused as shutdown/restart button, rus cairo-compmgr for some nice desktop effects (shadows don't work well though). That's it.

It's a bit old now and I've posted it before but here's an old WM setup I used for quite a long time.

I never really got into the dock-apps side of stuff. To be honest I found most of them a bit on the pointless side.

These days I use dwm+dmenu, but I still have a soft spot for WindowMaker.
