Very nice. Couple questions, is it possible to move this to the left next to the Window's Icon? And is it possible to have it show just the icon and no name?

[edit]Ok got rid of the text. Now to figure out how to get it to the left side. Also I found there is a button to the right of the clock without an icon that shows desktop.[/edit]
