Hi guys!

I was wondering if anyone had created an orb using the HAL thingy from 2001, A Space Odessey? I think it would look awesome, but nowhere near the skill to create one!

Hi,

I just want to ask where are the icons installed? I'm just curious because, i ran the installation files on drive d:, but my windows is in drive c:. Also i received a message when installing the icons saying that "D:/Themes, no extension found" something like that..

Thanks!
