Email address confirmed.
Looks like he has a beta of the theme at no 5.

Dude. He's still in Istanbul chilling with the worms.

Maybe he'll be reincarnated as that crazy dog in those pictures.

Dragun posted it, not me... Its publicly posted in his photo album on his idisk... link changed anyway.

Banghazi: might wanna change the link in your quote too.

EDIT: on a side note, prank calls are more fun when you know the victims name

Wow, you would think you guys were making a major motion picture with all that editing (BA-ZING). Anyway, can I just ask, does the subject of all this involve a "Ghostbuster's contact info" along with her cell number? I would assume that's what this whole thing was about with privacy issues and all but, just to be sure.

regardless,
the themer in question should note that the childishness of our behavior, it seems,
is simply a sign that we have been reduced to smithereens
in expectation of running his theme
on our machines...

OK, i didn't notice anything wrong with that one, so I just killed the entire post... to make sure i got it all,

May be we should ask Demonhood realy nicely to delete all these recent posts, that way when Dragun415 gets back from his acid trip to istanbul he wont have to wonder wtf happened?

Dude, where is this guy? I REALLY want this theme - I've been waiting for it since the first previews showed up. One of the nicest, sharpest, crispest, and coolest looking themes I've seen, and I'd LOVE to actually use it. Hell, my anticipation got me to register! And if this dude's toast, can we at least get the betas or something?

(Just kidding, Dragun - but seriously, get your @ss back here, we're all getting kinda anxious... )

I've spoken to a beta tester for this theme. He says he has had beta 6 for awhile, but hasn't heard from or seen Dragnun for quite some time...

Scoop Jones here. I have just made contact


18:28

[CreepingDeth] are you the creator of Cathode?
[Dragun] hey. yup. wassup.
[CreepingDeth] …uh…it's been a month…Where have ya been?
[Dragun] slacking.
[CreepingDeth] We've theorized that you've gone to Istanbul
[CreepingDeth] Alot of people are wondering "WTF" and some are even tempted to release the beta
[Dragun] really? I kinda got stuck on some areas and got tired of thinking about it.
[Dragun] especially skins for apps
[CreepingDeth] Yeah, But are you ever going to work on it?
[Dragun] maybe ill release it without the itunes skinned. thats whats holding it up actually.
[CreepingDeth] …You gotta skin iTunes
[Dragun] see what i mean?
[CreepingDeth] Once that's done it's all downhill
[Dragun] yeah, itunes is a bitch tho.
[CreepingDeth] You could have someone else help you…
[Dragun] hmm. thats a thot. ill check if anyone wants to volunteer their services then.
[CreepingDeth] There are a few people who have the resources for the buttons, etc., which could speed stuff up
[Dragun] BTW, istanbul was great.
[CreepingDeth] Did KillingYouGuy poison you with that black water of doom?!
[Dragun] lol whos kyg?
[CreepingDeth] Ok, maybe you should stop talking and get working on that theme [BTW, that's from a Homestarrunner cartoon]
[Dragun] geesh, im afraid to read the thread now.
[CreepingDeth] Don't
[Dragun] heheh, thnx. yeah, ill check an see if i can get sum help.
[CreepingDeth] Ok, just let me tell them of the news while you get your ass in gear. j/k
[CreepingDeth] This theme looks awesome…how does PS look…
[Dragun] lol
[Dragun] not perfect but usable.
[CreepingDeth] Examples of some issues…like…New window text colors?
[Dragun] you mean in photoshop? the new window panel is fine... its in some apps like safari where the download list view has not enuf contrast.
[Dragun] actually 2 apps bug me the most
[CreepingDeth]You can always have someone help you with the SS colors. Some of the new features in SS2 might help I think.
[Dragun] mail and safaris download view, which i use alot.
[Dragun] you can still read, its just not as comfortable without the contrast.
[Dragun] and i etched text in unsupported apps like delicious library.
[Dragun] Thnx for the heads up.

Who's da man?! Who's da man?!

Because some of it needs a clean up, unless someone already deleted those posts.

BTW, I think this is called for:


w00t! I convinced him to start the theme back up.

Yah, and that's totally the least of my concerns, too. If that's all we're waiting on, a .9 release would be absolutely acceptable... I'd love to see this theme, itunes or not...

I don't care about the iTunes skin either, but I guess it's up to Dragun to deside whatever is needed for his theme. Well now we know it's close to perfe... I mean close to completion.

Sorry for the lack of updates and being MIA.

Basically. I got really frustrated with the theme and what I could do with it and just let it sit. I've decided to release it as a public beta, tho there are things I still want to do, but maybe when I have more inspiration or skills to do later. one big thing is theres no itunes skin. I will work on this in the future but for now I gotta take a break from it. not sure for how long

Hope you like it anyways. click on poster to download Disk Image (dmg).
its about 5mb.



BTW. Thnx Solsonic for the cool icons!
