Hey, Uvah Shouldn't Be Left To Carry The Steampunk Mantle On His Own

c'mon people, it's a style that deserves to ne kept alive.. WB's IP's Cursors... anything.

Okay, the title and sub-title pretty much says it all, and I'm really hoping some skinners will take up the challenge to create some original Steampunk skins that rock this planet and several others.

The last time we had some original and great Steampunk themes is when k10w3 and kitty did a WB and IP package respectively.  Both were very popular themes and remained high among the favourites for quite a while, which suggests that Steampunk is not just a passing phase but a stye/theme that would grow if only we'd give it the opportunity with some new and inventive skins that really rock the casbah.

Orright, I've said my hopeful bit.

You're much braver than I am.

I wish you luck with it. Let us know how it goes.

 

Same here!  Windows 10 on my 2-in-1 has been a nightmare since MS forced it upon me, with unnecessary updates frequently breaking things.  I suppose I'll end up with the Creator's Update sooner or later on the 2-in-1, but I'm back with Win 8.1 on this machine and feel decidedly better about it than I do Win 10.

Anyhow, Wiz, how are you keeping?  As well as can be expected, I hope.

So far the only glitch was with IconPackager. The update changed them back to default but it was a simple matter of applying the icons again. Smooth as glass. WB is working, aside from the error message which I pretty much ignore, without any ptoblems. In fact all my programs are running smoothly, including CursorFX. There was however a major update that came through yesterday. Still no problems. Did a disk cleanup and running backups now. Disk cleanup netted me nearly 25 gigs, all those temp files and stuff.

So...back to OP......recovered all those assets I used on Steampunk. The gradients alone are from a pack I got over at DA. Six thousand different kinds, I'm only using four of them. I don't have enough room for that many. LOL

Hanging in there, Mark. I just take each day as it comes and make the most out of each one.

Quoting starkers,

It's good to hear that you're making every day count.  Our Bianca was also diagnosed with liver cancer, but she's not looking after herself too well.  It's like she wants to go out with a bang or something.  Either that or she isn't taking it at all seriously.  Hopefully she'll wake up and take better care of herself, if only for her kids sakes.

Anyhow, Wiz, you take care and stay positive, okay.
