Stardock will be closed for the week starting on Monday, June 29th and we will be returning on Monday, July 6th. We will be monitoring support tickets and forums during this time, but expect delays in responses during this time.
2of3 and I were chatting a while back about a new WindowBlinds skin for SDN.We came up with some ideas and bounced them around to a few people, and the community project idea was set.The purpose of the project was to design a suite by SDN members to promote this great site and as a tribute of the dedicationSK Originals, Hankers & WOM made throughout the skinning community.Many of the graphics for the project were inspired by the site and were done by 2of3 before the team was assembled.With a very talented team assembled the project started in March.The release was pushed back in order to make the suite the best that it can be.I have found that Skinning.net means a lot to the project team members. Most of them can tell you the first time SK Originals helped them with a skin. Some can tell you when they had be to set back on the straight and narrow by WOM, as well tell you of the guidance that he and Hankers has given to them. This is a complete suite of skins done by very talented people. I want to thank them all for their contributions and patience.
Go on over to the Downloads Gallery at Skinning.net and check out the suite!Link

Shame they have to put away the whips and cattle prods.......
I can't get skinning.net to show up in any of my browsers. I tried IE8, Opera and Firefox. Is there some trick to getting the page to load?
Works for me in IE8 k10w3.
EDIT: I just tried several of the links and the top link in the OP to go to SDN Home page and all worked. See if your security is set to high on your browsers. I have IE8 set on Medium High.
