Spinning Beach Ball of Death

Spinning Beach Ball of Death

Submitted By Wes (wesg)


Whether you call it the Spinning Beach Ball of Death, Spinning Pizza, Spinning Pinwheel or the Marble of Doom, all Mac users can relate to the frustration of seeing it on your desktop. Now you can have that colorful shape on your dock all the time, with this dock icon.

I made it from scratch using the Marble of Doom as a template, as well as forcing my computer to lock up.

Any suggestions are welcomed for v2.0. Thanks!


Added the connecting state.
