Splitwirez: Never heard of that before O.o Apr 9, 2019 9:52:34 GMT -8
R.O.B.: Strange, I can't even get the "Enable Classic Theme Now" option (in ClassicTheme.exe) to work. I'm still able to enable it by manually messing with the ThemeSection handle, but that's obviously not an optimal solution. Apr 10, 2019 13:33:43 GMT -8

R.O.B.: Due to popular demand, I have decided to create a tutorial for new users. I am currently in the process of putting it together, and I should hopefully be able to have it up within the next few days or so, given my work schedule allows it. Apr 24, 2019 21:32:45 GMT -8 *
R.O.B.: My work schedule has unfortunately not been very kind lately, so the tutorial is taking a bit longer to finish than I wish it was. I am still working on it, however, and I will do my best to publish it as soon as I can. May 5, 2019 12:27:53 GMT -8
