Some said it wouldn't happen.....that'll be because  'one or two' attempts went a bit wobbly with site updates, etc...Many "appy polly loggies" [as Alex would say - ACO]...

 

Congratulations to all [albeit a wee bit late-ish]....

On July 24th, 2001 I received an email from Johanne Chaine [Alexandrie] informing me I'd been accepted as Wincustomize.com's newest Wizop.



The only reason I 'remember' the date is that somehow I managed NOT to lose the email after a decade of new systems/computers/whatever.

The list of CC's is a veritable who's who of the world of Skinning way back then.

iMike, Shoggot, Renato C. Veras Jr, Patrick Ford, Migellito, David Knott, Brad Wardell, Kris Kwilas, Snoop...

I am lousy with dates and such.....but as long as I remember my Wedding Anniversary and Terry's birthday all is well....

 

One date that Hankers reminded me of [dunno how he does it] is June 24 [and it is that already now, here in Australia, so....]

Happy Birthday, Frogboy.

Wincustomize.com's [and all of Stardock's] members are all "numbered" [eg, I'm '23']  and so it goes that Brad is Number '1'.

But he's more than 'just'...

Oh, dear....I kept a lookout and still missed it by a day....

I joined Wincustomize.com on March 21, 2001 ..... and that would have been effectively 'Day One' for the site publicly.

Ah, time flies when you're having fun....

Congrats to Wincustomize.com and thankyou, Stardock, for giving us all somewhere to 'play' .....

It's "that time" again when I get the chance to announce the list of latest promotees as determined by the Wincustomize.com crew of devoted Mods.

  I'm going to deviate from my normal system and point out one particular person whose elevation was due largely/particularly from her involvement in the promotion and establishment of our newest Gallery, - Rainmeter.  Thankyou, Karen [Karmat]. 

And congratulations to you all.

Well, if the previous one was the penultimate then this one has to be the ultimate....



The very last promotion, Master or otherwise for 2010 is Lightstar.

Thomas has been around since Adam was a pup - 8 years is a long time in anyone's book, in fact Yesterday [30th] was 8 years exactly.

 If you take a quick 'squiz' at his gallery you'll find lots of fun Windowblinds skins, many with impressive DL counts with well over half a million downloads in 'just' the WB section alone ...

Always 'fun' to use big words....

Congratulations to a long-time Wincustomize.com member/skinner/all-round good guy - theAVMAN.

Harley's been with us for over 4 years now... and I'm sure there are many 'hanging out' for his ascendancy to the pinnacle of skinning-dom....

 Be sure to check out his Gallery  - http://theavman.wincustomize.com/
