so its been a while since my last journal, and also my activities here in dA

I hate giving hope of something i started to think i won't be able to do, fixing Border Skin bugs and updating it to a newer versions, my development seems to be very slow, don't get me wronge i adore Border Skin, it was and still my first to be published project, gave me a boast in the computer field in general i wouldn't dream of, but its complexity and size as a project to achieve something deep down in myself i know it can't be as good as the original, and to be developed mainly for one operating system, i don't know, maybe that's why i am developing it that slow, and add all that to the feeling of guilt really depressed me

but my really main considered reason is this new project, to compete with a shareware with no other freeware available to support the three windows systems together, to provide an alternative in a very wanted customization category is a very attractive challenge, and challenge is my love, most of my coding time is spent on this new software, the rest for Border Skin

since my main concern is for my users, i considered opening source Border Skin and make it available for another developer to develop, but i feel i am not ready for this, i know i know, not ready, what the hell that is suppose to mean, but i really don't know

I just don't want to be a kind of person that leaves something old i love for something new i also love, and to not to mention disappoint lots of people after giving them hope, i am just really distracted

so, what do u think guys ?? i really need some advice over here

anyway as an apology gift, i present u an early screen shot of this new project, which really clears what is about, i know that it is absolutely wrong to publish such photo in a very early stage, but anything for my friends and users

Border Skin is an amazing program! :D
What it achieves (looks, blur, address bar, etc.) is beyond what most XP users thought possible.
But IMHO it still has some significant stability/interaction issues, especially with Explorer, so unfortunately I prefer not to use it for the time being.
But if you are still working on fixes, let me know and I will send you a detailed report ;)

BorderSkin runs nearly perfect on my system. So i think there are not much changes needed to make it perfect.

Good luck for your new project.:iconthumbsupplz:

Is it SkinStudio that you want to re-program?

no, its actually not re-programing, it is a new software i am currently working on, and has nothing to do with Border Skin

That screeny looked pretty sweet, although I gave up XP about two months back, I overwrote the partition with 64 bit Vista. That app you are developing now certainly looks like it could work with multiple systems.

You could do some surveys to help find out what people are looking for in a freeware or shareware app. Then based off of whatever is the most popular idea, you could have more surveys to decide what features to integrate into the app. Then build it to be compatible with as many Operating Systems as possible. This would certainly help get your name out. Give the people what they want.
