    Another request: Per TC's traffic thread... David should add support for PNG alpha-blend transparencies. (I'm still working on that for SKINbedder as well, but it should be easier for David as he doesn't have to worry about the background image changing like I do with the iG/GE map windows.)

    Ya Id really like to see the title text (title area/clock/date) be customizable with different information

    CPU temperature is one thing that comes to mind

    Definitely an awesome idea --- but I would think that this is possible via a plugin?

    David, is it possible to code a plugin such that you can place data on top of one of the standard windows? Or does it all need to be contained within its own 'environment' for the plugin?

    I hope there wont be a slider...i love the new buttons its so simple and clean and adding the slider makes the app look for like a computer program....i say keep it just how it is...

    WTF?

    Does TiVO seem like a computer program then? What about an iPOD? A slider allows you to visually see your position as well as instantly jump to any position. FF/REW buttons are old technology. At least replace them with 30-second skip ahead, 15-second skip-back buttons.

    I know what you mean. I feel the same way... slider would look kind of cheesy in this app, in my opinion. But everyone feels differently about it... not really worth debating or getting philosophical over...

    ...which is why I think there should be options in the skinning. All that stuff in the first post would be able to be included or not included at the skinner's discretion, ie. if the following code is present, CF would use "slider.png" to track the progress of a song. If it's not there, no worries. <slider>
    <X>40</X>
    <Y>400</Y>
    <WIDTH>600</WIDTH> // could be 'height', which would make a vertical slider
    <ALIGN>Center</ALIGN>
    <ICONWIDTH>64</ICONWIDTH>
    <ICONHEIGHT>64</ICONHEIGHT>
    </slider>

    How about using mouse gestures to FF & RW ? Just a thought.

    I looked into Mouse Gestures for my Carputer, but I quickly figured out that ANYTHING that requires you to touch-drag onn a touchscreen is highly unreliable. It gets so f'ing frustrating it just ain't funny! Too bad, as I do like the Mouse Gestures in general for my home PC. (w/ real mouse of course).

    Why is that JIT? Have you tried StreetDeck? It sounds like a cool idea. The "gestures" are not position dependant at all, so unless your TS doesn't work right (like my Lilli ) or you have trouble keeping your finger on your TS (not a problem in my car), I don't see the issue. I value your opinion though, so please explain.

    EDIT: I can't believe you changed your tune on the drop-down menu. I still think it is totally gay

    EDIT2: ...and sliders are great!!! (I'm valuing your opinion less and less. jk)
