RedneckDude's Skinner Spotlight

Caught in the Headlights!

                                        Folks, it's time for the August 2010 edition of RedneckDude's Skinner Spotlight!

 

This month my victim is none other than Master scripter, sViz! sViz is famous here at WC, her name is in the description of at least 85% of my DX themes and widgets! I'm sure she's been involved in many other's too.

sViz has been here at WC since April of 2006. She has earned the Master status for her scripting prowess and her willingness to help anyone who asks, and many who didn't. She is a fine asset to the skinning community and has written various tutorials and articles. My favorite articles she has written have been in the I Love DX series.

 

 

 I Love DX Series

 

When The WeatherChannel took away our weather feed, sViz came to the rescue with several weather widget templates, with tutorials on using for your own skins.

She has written various tutorials and has posted them on several sites and on the WC Wiki. Here are a few important links:

And now, the best part, her work! Below are some examples: 
Firstly, her most recent super gadget, Metric. This thing is awesome, and it does a lot!
 
 
 

 

So, folks, please give a big hand for sViz, our resident scripting Master.

Faster than a speeding object, more powerful than a plug-in, able to leap tall scripts with a single bound.....it's 

SuperViz!!!!!

A great spotlight on one of the most talented and generous people on WinCustomize. Her templates and script work has made DX much more interesting and easier to use.

Sorry about the formatting guys. I have edited it 8 times and it just won't format correctly. I don't know why.

 

Sorry, Eve.

Eve is definitely one of my favourite people on WinCustomize for a number of reasons, so this tribute is more than well-deserved. Thanks, Jim. Whatever formatting problems you may have had, you still got your point across.

Actually? It's you who has given so much to the DX we love.... and honestly without you and a very few others DX wouldn't have the following it does. Jim chose you very rightly for the spotlight, sViz. I think he didn't choose you for the first spotlight (although he probably wanted to very much) because he didn't wish to be accused of playing favorites with DX (why would anyone accuse him of that?  ).

Thank you, Master Skinner sViz for the huge contribution you have made to WC ... from the heart!
