There's also a full theme available for download based on that background image for those not into editing dll files on their own right here.

I'm working on more themes to come as well but still need to secure permission to use the background files from the creators before I can post anything on it.

Something has been up with skydrive lately. Within the next few days all downloads should be hosted locally on hack7mc.com
