As some of you may have noticed I've been less active around here for some time now so after a lot of thought I've decided to retire from skinning altogether.

I'll be releasing any unfinished skins soon (see below) so if anyone fancies carrying on with them they're more than welcome.

It's been fun and I've made many friends along way.

Cheers.

Thanks for all the great work you did for XBMC. Your skills and good taste for design will be missed. For me Alaska still was/is the best skin I used Wink

It's hard to believe and ofcourse these are bad news for xbmc, but we have to respect your decisions.

Anyway, we all still hope to see you here in the forums.


Thanx for all you've done mate.

Bad news, I and I'm sure others learnt a lot by going through your code.

Hitcher,

I for one will miss being able to peek over your shoulder to see how I should be doing things. Your novel ideas and clever solutions to problems have certainly lifted what is considered possible with the xbmc skinning engine.

Thanks mate, best of luck with the future.
