Yes, it's a great feelling prof. These guys were really patient with me and it started on here but ended up on IM so there was no rep or glory involved.
Also I just tried Mr Grim's 7tsp and it makes it so easy to install one of these themes. It literally is follow the tutorial, install the 7tsp to your desktop, install the theme, run 7tsp and choose the theme-a couple of reboots and that's it. Amazing. It not only looks really cool but it's cleaner and easier to use I'm sure.
