Stardock Closed for the Holidays
Jan 5, 2015 8:45

Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

Hiatus...

...sort of.

Well, I've not been skinning much lately. Some of you know that I work at a Bible college. For the past several years, my only real responsibility has been to oversee the yearbook. Well, that changed drastically in May of this year. I now oversee all of the graphic design, the graphic design curriculum, advertising, website, and social media for the college, as well as the yearbook.

I also get design jobs on the side, which is nice side income, but it tends to consume my evenings.

Needless to say, I've been busy. I have a WindowBlinds skin in the works that is about one-third complete, and even then, I'm not sure It'll keep much of the same look by the time I'm done with it. I've been working on it since mid-June.

I'm NOT leaving WC. But I will be putting out skins at a slower rate due to my schedule. Just thought I'd let you all know that I'm alive and kickin' higher than ever; just not so much here.

Maybe my skin will see the light of day before 2011...

From what I have noticed you get a lot of enjoyment doing graphics. To have a job that has a lot of the same has to be a plus so enjoy my friend and I know you will be around from time to time.

That's sad for us here at WC, but I must say, in this economy, it encouraging to hear that somebody is actually too busy with work to spend the kind of time they would like here.  Good for you, Bryan!

Thanks everyone!

You may see an occasional dock here and there, because those are much easier (and quicker) to do than WindowBlinds!
