I encourage you to watch the  3 minute MP4 video on these Ionstorm Rainmeter Desktop sites that explain the many features and capabilities of this Rainmeter skin and PLEASE be sure to "RATE IT"!

The MAA modules are "FULLY ANIMATED" and have up and down movements.  Hidden "HOT SPOTS" Open, Close and Unload the skin.  In the Open position it gives detailed information not found in most skins including detailed histogram and digital readouts!

This series now comes in "FIVE" colors.  Solar Flare (Red).  Electric Blue (Blue).  Gamma Green (Green). These are the OFFICIAL colors.  I am introducing two UNOFFICIAL colors in the MAA series.  Photonic (Neon Green) and Passion Pink (Pink)? So sue me, I felt guilty....I had to do something for the ladies for once!
