Siickies

Still feeling sick. Got back up, sent in e-mail to work saying I'll be home sick.

...since I finished setting up and configuring our defect tracking/trouble ticket system and brought it live (even with my silly 'partitioned world' hacks to make our different customers not able to see things relating to each other) all I have to do Wednesday is work on some reports for a release methodology, anyway. I figure I can do that from home, on the couch, with a mug of tea and a nice warm blanket.

Plus(/geeky) side, I did play with StyleXP tonight and get some neat new window styles installed without the slowdown/performance hit of Stardock's WindowBlinds. I like StyleXP much better (it uses XP's internal styles engine, and you only need StyleXP loaded long enough to /install/ the styles, the rest of the time it uses the internal MSStyle system, so there's no slowdown you don't have anyway with XP's default Luna interface). Luminair, which I'm now using on my desktop is a pretty theme, and I like it.

Grab stuff from http://www.themexp.org/, and on the How-To page there's a link to StyleXP. I used to use WindowBlinds, and it caused slowdown even on my 1.8Ghz machine. StyleXP has no slowdown 'cause it uses XP's internal style engine entirely.
