Merry Christmas!

Some of you might already know that I'm currently finishing a new skin for the connection manager software that comes with the MF626 and MF636 - and it's really cool...



to



Because I'm using images from Telecom in the skin set - copyright and all that messy stuff comes in... so I'm not releasing it yet - I'm giving a little time to see how people react and what people at Telecom think about it (though I'm not sure how many are still here - most of them I would assume would now be on holiday)

(I've also used images from the Tango Desktop Project)


I will be releasing later tonight so people can try it out, but if Telecom really doesn't like it then I'm happy to do what's necessary.


Other than that - I hope you enjoy this little present from me! Smile

(And this is Windows only - so sorry Mac users out there...)

It looks great and I hope Telecom does not object to it because it is a wonderful great improvement on the current software and it was well worth your time! Also I would be willing to make a donation to you for you work James, PM me on GZ or DM me @thefatmould on twitter!

Thanks for the compliments guys :)

But I'm not taking donations - I like to work on projects like these voluntarily and without any monetary reward and like it to stay that way. I'm not that kind of guy and I don't really need the money (well not yet - probably when I get to uni...)

Great work :)


I already put a new icon for my one and it doesn't require downloading another .exe - instead I use software to drop the icon into the exe for me.

There is an included .ico file (TNZ.ico) specifically for that reason.


The software I used to do that was IcoFX. It's free, and portable too.
