new skin (pic only)

This is something I worked up real quick, and its the first time i've attempted anything like this. Any comments are welcome, and this is only in photoshop

goto: http://vbdrumline.***********/skininprog.jpg

note: I just realized you can't open the pic in a new window so just paste the url in the main window and hit back.

It's interesting. I'd prefer some more conventional skins though.

I can't see it... He said me: This file is hosted by Tripod, a Lycos®Network Site, and is not available for download. Please check out Tripod's Help system for more information about Remote Loading and our Remote Loading policy. Grrr

Jo, I like that one!
The lightning effects are great! But the buttons need a bit more work... u could add some other details (I think of techy things, pipes and so on...)
If u work it out a bit more, it will be a very nice skin, good job so far man!

Use spaceports to host free sites for starters. Don't use unrealiable servers like Tripod since it is very annoying if the pick is up only half the time.

it isn't because tripod isn't reliable... it's because tripod doesn't want remote image hosting and shiat like that. All you have to do is throw a '?' at the end of the address after you get the error page. This works because you are now coming from a tripod page so you can now show images.

I changed it up a little bit, changed the buttons to a more glossy look , and put in a little bit of detail so I can see what a final product might look like. I know i'm missing a couple buttons, and some other stuff.

If someone is interested i'm willing just to give them the photoshop image and let someone else code it (only because I have no knowledge of coding). All comments are welcome, and thanks to everybody else who sent suggestions.

I like the font for the clock. The ring around the outside really makes things look wierd. It changes depth in the image and makes things look wierd. It's hard to explain... but it looks wierd.

Wouldn't not allow remote images make it unreliable? I hate free hosts. They take away all fun that a webpage can produce. No downloads, no images remote, no scipts. What are you suppost to do? Host plane text static pages with a couple of graphics. I really hate free hosts. Glad I don't use them

There are no components on the picture, the vis is cut and paste.

Knew about that Lunarboy and I didn't want to tell anyone about it since they have such a limited supply of accounts but now everyone knows. Well I don't care since I get payed hosting for free.

There is one problem with Freedom to Surf and that is that they don't allow Telnet or SSH access so it is very hard to setup password protected server authenticated directories. So like I said before free hosts will never be good enough to put payed hosts out of business. If you are good you work the system and talk to people who do have payed accounts or who own servers and do them favors. Works well trust me. I have got three seperate people to give me access and still have access to two of those places.

Sorry about spilling the beans.

Yes, you do have a good point. Free hosts will never be able to do stuff like telnet or SSH.

thats true but why did they choose to make the statement for only c baffles me. Why did they even make that rule if it isn't always right. F*#$ed up English language.

good luck!

Scripting tut is being worked on now. It is in the pre-alpha-concept-design stage.

In other words we haven't gotten farther than: "Lets do a scripting tut!"

no *name and i will get something out when our workloads free up.
