Release your Inner Hero...

L.O.E.S.

Monday, May 19, 2008 by Skinhit | Discussion: Community

When 'Po Smedley introduced us to "The League Of Extraordinary Skinners" via a series of wallpapers paying comedic tribute to some of his fellow skinners, he had no idea what he had started! Po was bombarded with requests for coffee mugs, mouse mats and the like. Which he provided (they can be found here: Link ) Go on, get one, you know you want to!!!

So it was no wonder at all that we began dreaming of a desktop to match those fantastic walls and our coffee mugs!!! And, in true skinning tradition, a plan was hatched, Po was contacted and the league assembled!

This extraordinary suite is truly a community effort - involving 15 members of the Skinartisty community:

Fairyy, Asect, Bandit4edu, Boopish, Cavan1, DrillinBoss, Jimbo, Mike b 1954, Phoon, Pictoratus, 'Po Smedley, Pumakitten, Reppiks, Skinhit,and Stramp and SAM.

Some are experienced skinners and others are beginners, but all put their very best effort into making this an extraordinary suite! So get your coffee, and release your inner hero...because "THE LEAGUE WANTS YOU"!!

Suite includes:

Blind, Icon Pack, Cursors, Object Dock, Systemetrix, Right Click, Weather and Calendar Widgets, Rainlanders, Sidebar, Screensaver, Logons, Xion Player and a DX (in progress...to be released at a later date).

I've only downloaded and tried the WB and IP set so far (6.45am [not been to bed yet] and will look at the rest when I've had some sleep) but if these two are anything to go by, then the rest of the suite is superb and will be an excellent addition to my skins library.

Many thanks and congratulations to all who contributed their time, talents and efforts to this great community project, the result is most pleasing and much appreciated.

And there was me thinking that of my 19"... and trying to come up with a feasible excuse for a 24" that'll fly with the missus.

Recently went from a 17" to a 22" and boy was it worth it. See I knew there were more good reasons for never getting married

Tell her about those two 'famous' lies of marriage.....his..."no, your bum doesn't look fat in that" and hers "no dear, size doesn't matter"....

Ah!!! Another 'why buy a screwdriver when you can borrow the neighbours' type of guy, eh???

Dunno I wanna go there with either of those...

In the first instance, I get "you lying bastard" and a clip around the ear when she storms past to change into something else... er, less clingy. Uh oh!!!

On the second count, well I'm frequently told size DOES matter... it matters when my belly (a remnant from my beer drinking days) encroaches on to her side of the bed... it matters when we cuddle and she complains that can't get her arms around me.

Yup... size matters orright!!

No no that analogy just doesn't work.

They'd be happy to have a screwdriver returned to them when you're done with it.
