    Regarding editing buttons with the Gimp, I just found this online:

    I worked for a few years w/a Photoshop user (I think he had PS CS).
    The caveats I learned from sharing files between the Gimp and PS were (from memory):

    1. can't use masks in the Gimp and save to psd - they won't make it. Never figured out if the Gimp properly read in mask from PS though.

    2. text layers just get rendered as pixel info - still look the same, but cannot be dynamically altered.


    That would explain my confusion as described in post 487. I guess I'll have to pick up a copy of Photoshop. Can anybody give me some advice on what version to get? All I want to do is open up PSDs and move buttons around. In other words an older, cheap version would be great if it will allow me to do that.

    Nice clock, I would like to add that to the current Blue Devil skin. Is it available?

    Thanks for the donations guys!

    Thanks, I really appreciate it! In fact thanks to all of you that have made a donation!

    So many thanks to Kevin, Dave, AfterDigital, Arnis & K&M! Sorry, from the PayPal, I do not know your screen names on the board.

    I am working on trying to turn the donations into a decent car alarm. My last car was stolen about a year ago. This happened in a grocery store parking lot, in the middle of the day, in a nice area. With the car went my Frist CarPC, Touchscreen, 200 Gig USB Hard Drive, head unit, Radar Detector, and everything else that was in the car. Of course this happens only a little over a month that I made the last payment on it! I did not have theft coverage on the car, so unfortunately, I had to go car shopping the next day and started the car payments all over again! I did get the car back 2 weeks later, but it was stripped of ALL electronics, and pretty well trashed on top of that. They even stole the spare tire and crappy factory jack!

    Here's a before the car was stolen, and after pic. I had JUST installed the CarPC, so I did not even have a change to get a picture of it installed before the car was stolen.




    So lets just say I want to get an alarm with a engine kill, so even if they get in, they can't get anywhere with it! Also want to have the pager remote, so I can be notified if someone opens the door/trunk ect. At least I could go out shouting and hopefully scare them off, and not get shot in the process

    I DO like my eclipse (My avatar) better, but I sure miss the convertible and that sweet digital dash!

    Thank you for looking into this.
    Any update on my question regarding navigation through your skin using the arrow keys and then hitting enter?

    Major, major bummer about the car. From the picture it looks like your install was pretty stealth. Do you think they had an idea what you had in there? I'm sure my wife would put me on suicide watch if mine were stolen. Fortunately, my install is 100% stealth so it shouldn't attract much attention.

    Edit: I reread your post and now realize that the pic didn't include the install. No wonder it looked so stealth!

    A couple of observations as I've been spending more time using the skin:

    1. It appears that we can't navigate away from an embedded app without closing the app. It would be nice if we could go to another embedded app or back to the main menu without closing the open app. For example, I use WiFi Hopper to connect to open networks and if I launch WiFi Hopper and connect to a network I can't then go to the browser withouth closing WiFi Hopper and losing my connection. B8bboi's CFX skin has an arrow key that allows one to scroll through all the open embedded apps. It also has a button that takes the user back to the main screen without closing the embedded apps. Food for thought.

    2. The skin often shows that I'm connected when I'm not.

    3. The red "on" button is still appearing under the IG Options button occassionally. No big deal, but you said that shouldn't be happening any more so I thought I would point it out.

    Go into RRConfig. I don't have it in front of me, but somewhere in there there is a box that says something like "use standard international measurement." Uncheck that box and you should be off to the races.
