Hi Jerry!
Glad to know that you're still active here.
In case you're wondering, no, I haven't finished the theme I was trying to build the last time we talked. I got busy and I just gave up. I have forgotten much of the things I have learned then, but I managed to save enough resources (pics, notes) that I can re-trace my steps. Right now I'm collecting every information I can regarding those freakin' image nos. lol. Can we revive our old discussion? Wait, I'll try to search for that old thread.

EDIT:
Here it is: questions about system patchers &theme building in general
