        I think we should keep this thread really clean for Frodo. Let him do the posting.

            I hope you are not rendering the software too heavy... remember some people will be running fp on slower machines.

            Question - how does the windows communication thinggy works? that is intended with Girder, right?

            because as soon as you have girder compatible intercommunication, I will use this as an HTPC as well in the living room

            Everythign seams REALLY cool.

            question/suggestion: I know you already have password protected config. Can the password protection be used also for going to mini-mode and for closing/shutting down/exiting?
            it would be to avoid people from using outside software from the computer. (more embedded-style) Of course, all those could be configurable and most likely have the same password.

            Erm... I have a skin ongoing - will I have to change it when you release the new version?
            if so, tell me I will delay my skining.

              I think if thats what he wants he will request that. I didn't notice if that is what he did. And I think that kind of distorts the reason these forums exist. The free and easy exchange of ideas and technique. where all can contribute. er...off topic....but maybe we should let the author of the thread decide what he wants in it? Anyway, thanks for the update and thanks again for the fantastic software!

                You guys can post all you want in here, just try to stay on topic.
                If the thread gets too cluttered I will start a new one. I tried to
                clean the other but I screwed up So I just deleted it

                    Frodo still hasn't emailed you your beta-test copy?

                    Gosh...

                    I mean..... the rest of us got ours.....







                    Seriously though, I think you're about as anxious as I am. I've been checking back daily and nightly, but I'm trying not to ask the "when" question. I'm sure that Frodo wants it just right, rather than to release something buggy or "mostly done" - especially with all the anticipation.

                    I'm personally looking forward to seeing XM and Zorro's Phone Control integrated into the same environment as my MP3's, which will really make this an awesome front end!!!

                    Thanks for all your hard work Frodo!!
