Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, I give you, xcompmgr, the remix.

After deciding within 10 minutes of installing xcompmgr that the shadows were simply too big, I got to looking for patches for xcompmgr.

After some research, I found most of the patches just changed some #DEFINEs and such, so I got to hacking on xcompmgr, and now we have this:
Code:
usage: xcompmgr [-d display] [-n] [-s] [-c] [-a]
--trans-opacity 0..100  how opaic the shadows are of transparent windows (75)
--shadow-radius         radius of the shadows (12)
--shadow-opacity 0..100 opaicity of the shadows (75)
--shadow-offset-x, --shadow-offset-y
                        to get 0x0 offset, set:
                        shadow-offset-[xy] = -(1.5xshadow-radius)

I personally call it with like so:
Code:
xcompmgr -c --shadow-radius 6 --shadow-offset-x -9 --shadow-offset-y -9

and it looks like this:
http://dialbox.no-ip.org/osd/

ebuild + stuff availble here:
http://dialbox.no-ip.org/gentoo/xcompmgr.tar.bz2
and from here: (much faster, thanks to furiorc)
http://fisknet.no-ip.com/osd/

Note:
I've only really tested these changes when calling xcompmgr with -c, so if you dont use -c, and use this xcompmgr, your dog might have kittens, and I wont take responsibility for it ;)

20-30 MBit downstream / >10 MBit upstream for something like <20$

I can put up a european mirror on a computer here, just say the word (and send the files ^^) :)

   -t top-offset
      Specifies the top offset for clinet-side shadows. (default -15)
   -I fade-in-step

Well, I'm sorry to make this little offtopic foray, but... that price, those figures? Is seems almost impossible to me, stuck with pretty much the same bandwidth pppZero has :)

I'd love Sweden too! I'm blonde, so I guess I'd just do my best to fit, do I have a chance if I am really polite and say I want to be a refugee because of low bandwidth persecution?
