Guess I'm just a noob... but how, or what app are you using, to get iTunes to look like that? I want TiSkin to work on iTunes too.

Grayware: that's not iTunes. It's the beta of VLC. Right, wingchuner?

DJ.. If my memory serves me correctly, isn't that Silver Surfer image something that you created personally for yourself? Also, didn't you say that it would never be let out into the public?

now i'm really confused... PS can be a real talent i guess...

valdur: first of all, great desktops! I have some questions though:

Where did you get the robot-y wallpaper?
And also, what is the app that shows the album and rating in the corner? That one is really neat.

And one more.. what app did you use to show your system stats in the wallpaper?

Hey kertong get the robot wall here

the album art thing in the lower right is by an app called Synergy...get it at versiontracker....

the app i used for the system stats is called Aquamon...get it a versiontracker too...it's pretty cool..except that i wish there was an option to remove the dock icon and have it a pref pane instead so that it runs in the background....oh well...

d4nth3m4n: I lose everything when I open pretty much any app, but once it's open, I pretty much just use keyboard navigation anyway. As for the desktop, it's copyrighted material, found on deviantart wallpapers->political section, so I can't really share it, but I'll try to point you in the right direction if I can.

Someone on this board had them a long time ago and got permissions from his friend who had made them. I think they might still be posted at deviantart, but I have no idea where to find them.

Give me a sec to up them to my idisk.

AFAIK that iconset was ONLY available through Mikkels' website......... They were intended for use with BBX Mercury and Mikraine something-or-other that never saw completion.

Hmm well I've got them all still... It is a very complete well done set, though the masking on the smaller sizes wasn't very good.

I've uploaded them to my server if anyone wants them... If anyone has a problem with it let me know and I'll pull the link.
MMXMERCURY.zip 2.34MB
This is not the full set, the full set is 22MB zipped. If anyone really wants it I'll upload it for them... Just PM me to get the link, I don't want my bandwidth being eaten by 100s of MacNN members.

As for the Safari icon, I used to visit MixThePix everyday waiting for a new icon set. I remembered it from there I guess. It really is a shame that hes not sharing them anymore, but it isnt because of this:

Well, actually youre half right, but it was mainly because of one software company:
http://www.adnx.com/
He battled with them for quite a while and it went no where. They still used his icons in their applications and he still told them not to. Their excuse is here:
http://www.adnx.com/icons.html
Really a shame...
Anyone have them archived?
