Heh, I'm done...

Well ladies and gentlemen, After brief 6/7 Years skinning I will release my last skin coming in the next few weeks for winamp. I've decidely found that my attentions are drawing elsewhere and I've never been that great anyways...LOL.

Now, I'm sure that someone is going to think that I'm only out to grab attention etc...etc. I'm not I'm actually very pleased at the decision and no one is forcing me or making me angry. I really have enjoyed working with the following people and want to give mad prop's to them in their patience and willingness to deal with a complete ass such as myself:

--------------------
1. The Only Lynx
2. Ampburner
3. Raj I/O
4. Mr. Jones
5. Forev(ever)
6. Pe@cemaker
7. Jayn
8. Skin!me
--------------------

It's been my pleasure and honour to deal with you individual in passing or in collaboration. I have and will always respect your thought and your designs.

The last skin that I will be dealing w/ is WoodShop.Elite that will be sent to The Only Lynx for his final approval and additions. I hope that it lives up to the expectation of making it to a great skin.

You guys, take care and enjoy yourselves....I will check back within the next few weeks to speak to those that wish to maintain contact with me.

yeah, that will do Lynx of course....in fact I'm loading it now...

As for atmo and the other...no...I am now switching my attention over to StyleXP || WMP. I don't even use winamp really as much as I used to and I'm bored of it.

heh, Good thing is that I am deleting Slick Series 2....Its a sore thumb...LMAO.

The betting is now open! I bet he won't be able to leave Forever - I bet you he'll be inspired sometime and make another skin
Its in his blood
just like the rest of us
which is why I just disappear instead of saying goodbye

so I'll just say "See ya later!" and know I will

If anyone can find any of the skins I made please email them to Forevever@aol.com
I can't remember all the names but specifically hunting for Lascivious, and DEVOUR (compilation with Jax) and any in the Impulse series which had 6 total. Auriferous, Gilt, Impulse, Nadir, and 2 others I can't remember but you dig.

I'm sorry to hear of your decision but I do not want to block it. It's been great knowing you, talking to you and seeing your work. I wish you all the best in the future. I have a feeling that perhaps you will live on in Winamp skinning. Well whatever, have a great one.

very nice thank you....


Forever you inspire me every day

I deleted them because, my stat's on the downloads was grossly over porpotioned...for the ability. But, its also a 'sure' method of preventing me from continuing a need for me to come back. StyleXP is a wonderful product and I'm finding that the skins I am making for it are both enjoyable and fresh.

Plus, since I already understand the needed design skillz for XP and wmp I will be able to produce a comprehensive skin package that will include a skin for both in the form of .exe that will allow a 'user' to have not only a skin for their desktop but, a skin for their media-player and a variety of other app's. (Why skin one when you could skin the world...bwuahahahaha.) LMAO

Not to worry, I'm happy...and everything is working out fine.

I appreciate and enjoy your remarks as always.

If there are any skins of mine that anyone would like before I remove them elsewhere please contact me directly. I will likely have them removed from all skin sites by this saturday. (Not only will the skin be give but a readme.txt allowing you the right to upload and continue the skin as your own.)

Note: To get one of my skins and the readme.txt for release please goto my ftp and download the one you are taking.

(if you are just getting them for usage that is fine...but, if you want them completely send me an email indicating which skins you are taking of mine.).
