Ayumi : Maximum Hacking
Well, it's time to sum it all up here guys. Latest shot, latest setup, and latest hacks.
I spent an unreal amount of time on this one, and got so caught up in choosing bitmaps for my dialog boxes, that I forgot to change the damn icons! So, same set that was in use last time, still match of course though, no problem there I don't believe.
Anyway, running Grigri's HTML taskswitch app here. Looks nice, runs good, and works perfect. It's rare that anything goes in that order for me on this hacked to death copy of 98, but I got really lucky on this time around.
Also, the dialogs all have bitmaps on them now, and I'm loving it too. I tried to pick some reasonably good looking images to put on there, but, this mainly is an example of what can be done. Choosing the right image and overall dialog box design will from now on be an ongoing process for sure.
The wall was used in a really nice screenshot over at Customize.org. I don't login, nor do I comment, but I do look, and I had to have this wall. So, I downloaded the screenshot, edited ALOT, and made it my own. Trendy it may be, but damn she's just too hot not to have on my desktop! LOL
Ok, now for the list:
Wall: Ayumi Hamasaki (Edited by me, recieved from Customize.org)
Winamp: Milk (Trendy, overused skin, but my first time, and it's nice!)
Icons: Block OS and Simple mixture (I really did forget to change up)
Hacked Start Menu
Hacked Desktop Right Click Menu
Hacked Run Box with bitmap
Hacked Open/Save Box with bitmap
Hacked Taskbar Properties box with bitmap
Running Tclock 2
Running Grigri's Taskswitch app
No Eppie set yet again, still using Grindlestone's Marlett, and love it!
Ok, that should cover it. Hope you guys like.
