  1. You may/may not be talking about me and my website http://osx.portraitofakite.com. The site was down for a good few months at least and I FINALLY took the time to bring it back up just a few days ago. For anyone else that is interested no I am not dead and I do have plans to pick up the FlyakiteOSX project soon.
  2. Do me a favor. Run down to your local electronics shop and pick up an X-Fi audio card, an Ageia Physx card, two 8800GTX card for SLI, and let me know how well those work in OS X for you. And then while you're at it check out this list: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...hardware_10.4.3 And then take a trip down to Cupertino and tell them that image is no longer important. That their hardware design isn't part of what makes them successful. When people think "Apple", there are certain things they associate with the name hardware/software wise. And then you can sit and field the
  3. This is due to either chinese versions of XP I believe or one of the character packages for XP. Crap I can't remember it's been so long, haha. Either way, the reason is that shell32.dll is larger than 9mb and it causes those problems in those particular scenarios. The solution is to install FlyakiteOSX using the 48x48 icon option, not the 128x128. This will keep the file size below that and shouldn't cause any problems. Of course if you use icons larger than 48x48 it will affect you, otherwise you won't notice a difference.
  4. I have never used VMware Server. I use VMware Workstation EXTENSIVELY though. With Workstation you must first install the VMware Tools. From there you can just drag and drop between the guest and host systems. I'm guessing you could also try sharing a drive on the host and mapping it on the guest possibly. I'm at work now and I don't have access to my machine so I can't check what other options are available.
  5. Yes actually I am. I have been VERY busy lately with all sorts of stuff going on. I plan on making an official post regarding what I've been doing and what the current plans for FlyakiteOSX are sometime this week. There is a lot going on and a lot planned so I'll make sure to update everyone, don't worry. I'll try to post about it in the next couple of days so keep an eye out.
  6. I will be updating the patcher to support the new versions sometime this weekend. I will probably also be adding Vista uxtheme support (hopefully). Note that the patcher supporting Vista does NOT mean I have any plans to develop FlyakiteOSX for Vista.
  7. Or, offer something someone else already has, but you do it much, much, much better. You add originality, good atmosphere, a place people want to visit. If you're just a copy of something that's already been done, then what reason do people have to visit?
  8. 1. Which incarnation of the iPod do you like the most (product line and generation)? iPod Nano (RED): An amazing display of technology in a tiny little package, plus part of the proceeds benefit a great cause. 2. Which version of iTunes do you like best? Feature wise: iTunes 7 for Mac (sorry, the Windows version just doesn't cut it) Design wise: iTunes 6 for Mac 3. Name the celebrity you think is the hottest (do both genders for a chance at extra points!)? Female: Jessica Alba - she's gorgeous and has a very innocent look to her Male: Brad Pitt, because well he is a good looking guy, and ev
  9. EDIT 3: Screw it, I think it can take off. I don't care anymore. I'm done editing this post. I should just delete this whole thing. EDIT AGAIN: So I thought about it some more. I actually don't think it would take off the more I think about it. It is possible for a plane to sit on the ground with it's engines at full blast but the brakes are on, and therefore the plane doesn't move. So on a treadmill, the plane is still stationary in relation to the outside world. Since the plane isn't moving against the air around it, there's no lift on the wings, and I don't think it would take off.
  10. It's the Harlem Globetrotter's theme song, which is called Sweet Georgia Brown by Brother Bones.
  11. First of all, people need to stop calling them M$, isn't that a bit out of style now? Secondly, people shouldn't blame Microsoft as an entity. It's not like Bill Gates and Steve Balmer said "Hey use this icon", whoever is responsible for that page obviously is at fault here, not the entire Microsoft corporation.
  12. Iconfactory didn't create the icon. As well, that 2nd link mentions nothing about them denying they licensed it out. They say right in the little post that the icon was created by Apple.
  13. This has been answered before. Check the FAQ on my site. It's there for a reason. http://osx.portraitofakite.com/
  14. 32-bit or 64-bit Windows? And this is with the most recent 2.1 patcher? Because I just checked the code and that version is in the installer for 32-bit.
  15. I don't think I got the e-mail, I just searched my inbox and found nothing. Can you resend the e-mail, and attach your uxtheme.dll file from system32? (flyakite19 at hotmail)
