Saf theme by Forsakenlad. Its elegant and simplistic, clean lines and soft colors. :) I also liked Koni's Hi:ha theme, very innovative twist of the babylon theme, with great looking buttons.

That it was rather anonymous :)

I mean, at least from the colorful YabbSE. But of course, when diving in and trying it out, it was just jaw-dropping. The speed..was just amazing. I had been using the dreaded YabbSE Supermod version up until then, so of course the difference was probably even bigger than with plain vanilla YabbSE.

Bloc, what exactly does the image in your avatar depict?  I can't quite make out what it's supposed to be :P.

Eh, Dan, that's exactly the question I asked just before yours. ;D

Didn't even bother to look, Aäron.  ;D :P

The only thing php can't do is tell you how much milk is left in the fridge.

How do you juggle a 'real' job, a family, sleep, and still have time for SMF?

bloc

Good question, amy... :) It can get tight sometimes, but of course some things need to come first regardless. I also try use the time effectively and don't close myself off to the rest of the family..that means more diversions for me, but it works better for everyone.

what do you like more: coding(like making TP) or graphic development(like making themes) ?

I think like themes more.. ;), but coding, especially when doing new stuff, is also exciting.

No, 3d work I never been into..dabbled some with Terragen, but thats as far as it goes.

Hmm... is that how the hip people in Molde spell it nowadays? :P

(I'm actually 1/4 romsdaling myself by the way)

How do you like living in Molde by the way, and how would you describe the city to someone who has never been there?

What makes a great movie great to you? Some examples would be cool.

Where do you usually find inspiration for your themes, and does the ideas tend to come spontaneously to you or develop over time?

Just out of curiosity, do you like do play with blocks?  :P

Sigh...

Molde is a small city, football and jazz are the main focuspoint here..every year there is a jazz-fesitival where the city get real international for a week, with jazz legends often visiting. Herbie Hancock I have enjoyed a few times in concerts. Have zero interest in football though... :)

A great movie is a film that grabs you, either in story, emotions or pure effects. Almost anything in the SF genre really. Bladerunner is long-time classic, likewise Brazil and Lord of the Rings. Matrix are good. Or films like Seven, Silence of the lamb etc. Shrek 1 and 2 are great. :)

oh, its a mix..i sometimes just let things go their own way, other times set out with a specific idea. I did a lot of oilpaints before, so i think that "painting" aspect is still very present.
