Description

Orange Beta r2

This is a very minimal contact theme designed to go with the included desktop wallpaper from Veer. It utilizes Jason Kottke's Silkscreen font. It is based off of Grass, which is a wonderful layout.

It works best if you use the Orange Beta r2 Message Style as well.

I can't read the status of available buddies. Otherwise top-notch.

Well, I've found a way to make it work, and look absolutely killer at the same time: http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/2429...angevc8.png

Contact bubbles and Orange contact list style with user icons and status text color cranked up to 90% saturation. The group header font is Turntablz BB, available for free from Blambot (http://www.blambot.com/fonts.shtml). Looks killer with any of the freebebot desktops (http://www.customize.org/details/28516), but works with anything, and the message style isn't bad with the handwritten Desyrel font (http://www.fontparade.com/index.php?p...ont&id=1089).

The reason I like this contact list style is that it's the first I've seen to ditch status icons and use color in a more distinct and compelling way to show user status. The color scheme is so appealing that I can't stand to use any other. It just needs that tweak of the status text color, and it's gold. Until then, 4 ducks.

P.S. you have my permission to use that screenshot to promote this Xtra if and when you change that color.
