and I suppose all of you who are still reading this post. Brian

.......Which is not an easy task. Line breaks are a good thing. Big chunks of text are not.

Darn. Outposted and outquoted. Never mind.

Thanks for your kind words Brian Himanshu (Desai last name) is me. It was an honour working with you (my directness/bluntness always lands me in so much trouble, but it's still the quickest way). The WB is perfect & exactly what I was hoping for. I look forward to working with you again, should the opportunity arise.

I said to Brian late into the project, I work in IT & by nature am looking at my screens 12+ hours a day. I'll be looking at your work more often than I do my wife (sad I know) so I need it to be clean, usable & above all right (no glitches), hence I hardly ever change skins. He delivered on every level. 

I hope everyone else likes it it too. This was the fist collaboration I have done @ WC it was immense fun, would love to do it again.  Brian mate your work is outstanding & greatly appreciated.

It's up to Brian now I imagine he's just tidying it up or getting some well deserved rest (from me probably LOL). 

I think desktopX gadgets would work well with this and/or sysmetrix, not sure.  If anyone is interested happy to share a screenshot of what I run ( I use rainmeter & aida64) as I haven't found a combo of desktopX stuff that gives me the info I want, with the colours I use.

That's way too nice, Himanshu.You were and are so good at co-skinning,except for the names of skin parts[lol], I hope you get to work with someone else to show your knack for skinning.Thanks very much, Brian.

 

 

Jafo,yeah yeah yeah.

Next time. sorry readers. Uvah:just submitted, hope you like it, if you do, yes, skin what you desire , but, I don't think it will be that hot.Although, I have been wrong once before in my life, okay, more than once,you judge it bud.

Yeah dumb as a door knob, when it comes to the parts (didn't help you at all I know, hence all the screenshots).  I have absolutely no knack of skinning as you well know LOL, hence me coming to you. Just have ideas in my head which before now had now way to realize them.  PS I knew you'd feel that way about the previous skin I rejected LOL.  Still many others liked it so that's all good.

When we started this I downloaded SKS to have a look, destroyed so many great skins just by messing around, soon gave up & uninstalled, far too complex for me, I'll stick to building networks, (much easier) & enjoying everyone else's hard work.  Hence my appreciation for you & all the other great artists here.

Can we cry foul/conspiracy if anyone doesn't give this 5 stars just kidding.

{Edit} Just noticed you put me down as co-author a bit too generous I think.  Since I didn't do the hard work, or actually design anything.

Well frankell I got the idea from your own screenshot (as you know) with your wonderful docks, so thanks to you too for inspiration. 

To everyone else reading this, Brian put in so much work, with constant back & forth between ourselves.  There were moments when I was convinced Brian would give up, exasperated at both what I was looking for & my constant drive for perfection & looking for errors along with my brutal comments when I didn't like something.  I'm certain he really was pulling his hair out at times.  I still have some of the shall we say tense emails, which looking back now, make me smile.

Even when this was 1st posted earlier today I emailed him back with something I thought was wrong very last minute & bless him, he took on the chin it & knew exactly what to do.  what a star!

I'm so glad he stuck with it, as I'm sure everyone else will be.

All of the artists have very distinctive styles, you can often just look at a skin and know who the author is.  The first challenge was asking someone to  work outside of there style/comfort zone, then do something completely different, for someone else's tastes & style.

I can honestly say, from my point of view it was well worth it not only have I got a great skin, but I got to know a great artist and more importantly a great guy, & feel part of the community, contributing in my own very small way.

One way to preview a skin is to use the Screen Shot Gallery...another is using the "Sneak Peek" Forum (https://forums.wincustomize.com/forum/435).
