Article in today's paper said the California judge ruled that parents do not have a constituional right to home school their children unless parents have recognized teaching credentials.  It will be re-heard this month.  The decision, of course, will spiral for all states.  You may vote on the issue at  Do not know what influcence the voting would have, but.....

This may be a little long, goes.

It all started way back with XP.  I had a blind I thought was pretty well finished, well it was working.  Had an unusual frame, 3rd party plugins (which were working), etc.  I decided to upgrade to Vista Home.  Well, same blind with my third party menus still working for me, but could not get the Vista logon buttons to show (which were now skinned for Vista), nor my go buttons for ie to show.  At this point had someone test the blind and they said everything worked.  Hum, not for me, nor anyone else's Vista blind on the logon buttons.  Well, decided to try ultimate and still no logon buttons, go buttons and lost my third party plugins.  Well....the saga continues.

In the meantime, had re-formatted my granddaughter's computer with Vista and she was no longer able to play her favorite princess game (which worked on my computer).  Well, definitely couldn't have her on my computer, so thought I would just purchase another computer and give her mine (secretly hoping my blind problem would be resolved).  And....

Got the new computer up and going (which has Vista Home), installed all my programs and applied my blind.  Yeah, I got my go buttons, but..would you believe it....I lost my start menu.  And my third party plugins still don't work.  Hum, I thought.  Applied other Vista blinds and everything was ok.  And, so.......I'm wondering, does my 20" monitor make a difference graphic wise I thought.  Hum, couldn't be if other blinds work.  Is it my animated menu graphics which worked before on ultimate not working on Home, no that couldn't be as it worked before on Home.   Well, at this rate, maybe I can get everything working by 2020 (is that a magical number I wonder?).

Just thought I'd share this.  I've been sitting, analyzing, thinking, and wondering as I continue to look at the frame on Windowblinds and trying to figure a way out of the norm of rounded corners, square corners, or just unusually designed frames.  I envisioned a lot of masking, taking into account the new transparency features, and well, have to admit that I am generally trying to do the abnormal, i.e. unusual shapes for a blind.  Also, got excited last night as a vision of one came to mind, was going to go into Photoshop to execute the vision, then got sidetracked on the net and started to look at the frame on my blind while a url was coming up and began to put put my vision in its place only to come to the final let down, not truely feasible.  But then, you know what they say about visions......and....well......with Stardock creativity, humm, maybe, never know, someday a vision may be reality.

Grayelk, Tom, is in the hospital. He has had a leg amputated. Don't have a lot of details as of yet, but the prognosis was not good. Please pray for him.

Well, know the reason I've always liked to skin. Sharing for one, creativity outlet for another, learning as you go, and experimenting. So, okay skinners, let's hear yours.

For all the loyal supporters I thank you. Due to circumstances, I will not be submitting to WC. It has nothing to do with Stardock or WC as I still think highly of everyone. By the way, does anyone know of a good work-at-home program?

I've been contacted by a Japanese magazine that distributes CD's. They want to include my windowblinds. I recall something similar having been posted last year, but do not remember the outcome. I think more were against than for. Any enlightenment is much appreciated.

Last report on Fuzzy Logic was by-pass surgery. Has anyone heard how he is doing. And, Fuzzy, if you are up and about, and you happen to read this, I wish you a speedy recovery and hope to have you back here soon.

Has anyone heard of TechWin, a Japanese magazine? I remember a thread some months back where someone had something featured with them and I can't remember whether the response was favorable or not.
