Needless to say, i am a big fan of your work Swiz, and especially jetblack.

Thanks for the feedback. The finder buttons have been one of the tuffest parts that I keep reworking over and over again. so i don't know how its gonna turn out.

As far as progress, The beta is very close to fully functional. Also fixed new radio buttons, and progress bars.

As for a release, I am estimating 2-3 weeks.

TTYL.

I love the selected state of the list view in the background but I like the unselected glyphs in the closer buttons. I'll make a mockup and post it here in a minute to show what Im failing to say properly .

can someone (mods) please change the name of this thread to reflect the theme name or something. it is driving me nuts to figure out what "My First Theme" might be about .. especially since it is now at 6 pages and I am sure it will grow as it nears completion.

by the way: AWESOME theme!!

It is.
So what is it? 2 weeks to go?

I hope this theme will actually be usable.

Ye I have read the whole thread. I've been in this thread from the very beginning. Or atleast I've monitored it from the beginning. But 3 weeks??? 3 WEEKS? I don't wanna wait 3 weeks!!! Hurry up man! This theme really rox. It combines two good themes. A little bit glow (siro), and it's so nice and black (jet black). And that fully black background.. mmhh... I just love it. And if that swiz's idea about the glyphs can be done... I don't wanna wait anymore!

And does anyone have an idea what font is being used? Pretty nifty.

ok... over a month and no word...
I say the beta testers should continue work on this project, finish it, and release it in memory of the late great Dragun415. rest in peace.

Those thots are killers. I mean, that's about 70% purity in some of those shotsI mean thots. Those thots are infamously strong in Istanbul. Maybe it was all that poisonous black wwater that killed him.

I've solved the mystery!

Perducci got his minion, KillingYouGuy to kill him when he was comeing out of the ancient Turkish palace of GUI forums/nun-chuck gun manufacturing plants. Solved!
