steampunk: refined woodwork by pixeltarian steampunk: refined woodwork by pixeltarian

==========================
*edit*
- fixed stretching problem when used at the bottom of the screen
- lots of re-coloring
- start menu themed to match better
- now uses Tahoma 8pt font
- solid colors for taskbar items (I found I cant really use images effectively for that)

Le me know what you think of the changes, esp. the start menu because it's they only stylistic thing I did on this update. the rest of the work was fixes.
============================


This is me doing some work on nitzua's theme "woodwork" which is actually built on top of "Sandwich" by akka.

Links:

akka's sandwich theme

I wanted to use it permanently, but saw that the taskbar and maximize window title still have akka's skin instead of the woodwork look.

I might change a few things and eventually finish the skin or start with a skin that is closer to what works well with this wood look. for now I thought I'd share this with you all because I think it's a really sharp looking skin and I made it "done" enough to be pretty functional. I don't use quicklaunch or "hide inactive icons" - if you don't either I don't think you'll notice much limitation with it.

also check out the Reaper skin "bubinga" and the foobar2000 skin OldStyle by weirdoo - I think they fit right in.

As far as all that moding and porting and whathaveyou - I would say just read whatever rights granted by the other two authors and respect them.
