There are many reasons for this.
...just to name a few.
I know there will be uproar about this. And I hope so. Step up to the plate and make something bigger and better than what we did here. Prove me wrong that this type of close-knit community isn't a lost hope. I'd love for you to do that, truthfully.
I have nothing but pride and sincere thanks for all of our staff and members. You all made this awesome while it lasted.
Now go make something better.
Request at will, if you need help identifying:
- Icons / Themes
- Various Mods
Thanks, and enjoy.]]>

Had lots of requests for this, so I've decided to release it.
The package comes with a retina and non-retina theme which includes a tap to unlock version and a slide to unlock version. I've also made some sexy minimalistic wallpapers that go great with it.
For those who have trouble SSH'ing, I'll post this on cydia soon. ;)
Also, please bear in mind that if you want to get rid of the time/date on the lockscreen, you need to download lockscreen clock hide in cydia.
I've grown to really love this locksceen and I hope you do too. :)]]>

Hope you like them :)]]>
I present you with Enfi, a system replacement set containing 34 icons. This set has been in the making for about 4 years, and I finally decided to polish them off and release them so they can have their day on the desktops of everyone.
Let me know if you have folder requests. I can't guarantee that I'll make all of them, but I'd like to try.
Here is the installer for Snow Leopard: http://cl.ly/V3I
Here is the installer for Lion: http://idzr.org/jyyxs
Edited to include updated images and naming for iOS 5.X. This should still work on 4.3.2 as well. This also includes the LockScreen bubble created by Jacob and the camera button created by mreakus.
The icons measure 200x138 pixels. If you do create any new ones, feel free to post theme here in this thread.
There is a template.psd in the download.
How to: Add sites to Quick Launch's index.html
<a href="<SITE URL>" class="thumb" title="<SITE NAME>"><img src="img/<SITE ICON>" alt="<SITE NAME>" /></a>
<a href="http://twitter.com/" class="thumb" title="Twitter"><img src="img/twitter.png" alt="Twitter" /></a>
Just copy the code snippet into a text editor and replace the placeholders in the <>-tags. Make sure there actually is an image for the site you want to add in the /img/ directory. If not, you have to create it yourself or search the thread.
Next, you'll need to open the index.html file in a text editor and copy the code snippet into it (between or after the already existing sites).

Got round to finishing off my port of Dustin Schau's awesome Classica 3 for all you iPad owners.
In action: http://www.cl.ly/343Q1s3P140w3N1p0L1i/o
All bundled up and no scaling, Icons have been redrawn and look crisp on the iPad.
I haven't got to sorting out the .psd yet, but I'll try to get that up as soon as I can.
Credits to Dustin Schau for allowing me to release this port and being the creator of Classica 3.
If you fancy donating a little to help me along rough times, any amount is greatly appreciated
Since iOS 5's release yesterday I've been "probing" around in iOS 5's filesystem and noticed some changes with how images are handled and how we are now going to theme them. So i figured i would start a little thread where we can all use our collective knowledge base to help others in adding their own themes to iOS 5.
To Start off , there was a recently released "beta" for Winterboard that is available to install via SSH or through iFile @ apt.saurik.com , The build for this new version is 0.9.3900-1 . I am currently using it on my iPod Touch 4th Gen , and for now it is working beautifuly , however there is still *NO* .Plist support as of now.
So here is a quick list of some of the changes and "tweaks" i was able to accomplish whilst trying to theme iOS 5.
1.) To change the Dock you must navigate to this path
and delete the "SBDockBG@2x.cptbitmap" cache image then you will be able to theme the dock after a respring.
2.) Since there is still no .plist support in this new winterboard beta , i have devised a clever way of
*Hiding the dock labels*
Navigate to var/stash/Applications
step 2 locate the app you want to hide the label on.
For Mail.app you will navigate to this path
then you will proceed to open "English.lproj"
Then you will need to open "InfoPlist.strings" with the text editor
now to make the label hidden you will delete everything in the key "CFBundleIdentifier = "Mail" "
so for instance making it " " will hide the label
repeat for every app on the dock
3.) There are other little Changes to icon names and such as the icon for mail used to be "email@example.com" and is now "Icon@2x.png"
There are little small changes like these all over the filesystem and I encourage everyone to post their findings here so we all can theme and enjoy iOS 5.
If anyone needs my help , please don't hesitate to ask.
i think it takes too much place and it looks much better if it were transparent
this one looks good
Not sure if this is M* worthy but I'm trying to get back into doing small stuff for fun. I was looking for a linen wallpaper so decided to quickly whip up my own. This has 4 different colors although they are all similar. This is for iPhone 4 specifically. If it's ok, this can be moved to releases. :)
Don't mind the suckish preview. :P
What do you think?
ps: don't forget to visit the site from your iPhone :P]]>

Less, but better.]]>
On a different note, we've heard your complaints about the community, and even though only a handful of you have taken enough initiative to back your complaints with donations to help fix things around here, two community members have stepped up to develop a new iteration of Macristocracy. Zak Auerbach (zaksoup) and Harry Harrison (hareesun) are going to develop the site.
We don't have a new design yet, that's where you come in. We're not having a contest. We're merely pooling our resources to create the best design for our community by our community. You don't win anything. We'll give you credit, but we can't offer money (because most of you haven't given us any :-P ). I understand most folks are busy, so all we're asking for right now is a mock-up of the front page (/vanilla currently). Hack something together, send it off to info@macristocracy. The only parameters we have for the mock-ups are to please incorporate our new "mascot" the M*stache. Get a .psd of the M*stache.
Back to the changes.
We're changing our invite system. Conceptually, current members are going to be able to "nominate" non-members for invites. They'll get dropped into some sort of pool and be voted upon. The votes will be on a weighted point system. Staff votes count for 10, Resident Artists 5, and Members 1. When the nominee receives the required amount of votes (still debating this number) they will be sent a congratulatory email and will receive an invite.
We also plan to make a "repository" index where you can visit to download any of the packages released on Macristocracy. This will require the artist's cooperation, and will not be required of every release, but would keep things organized and simple.
Which I'm sure brings to mind how we're currently an "exclusive" community. Our stance on this is changing a bit. We will no longer support or police "NFR"-releases. We're not forbidding them, we just no longer believe such a thing can exist. For the bettering of the community, we will have less drama about "pirating" or "leaking" and more sharing. If you choose to release something exclusive, you are welcome. However, Macristocracy staff will tolerate no complaints about leaking, nor will it police the web for you.
We'll be making some changes to the organization of the site as well. Critique threads and release threads will merge. The only sections will be: Lounge, Desktop, and Mobile. There will be other small but helpful changes like users being shown the rules when they first access the site. The "Start a New Discussion" icon will be more prominent.
So. When will all this happen? I haven't the slightest clue. The sooner we start getting design ideas, the faster it gets to development. Our developers are working for free, so I don't expect them to fly through it. (If you want to donate to Zak and Harry to encourage them, please do! ) I'd like to have it done by the first of the new year, but that's probably unrealistic.
Feel free, as always, to discuss your frustrations below.
Oh, and donate. I mean, it's the right thing to do, after all. You use a service, pay for it every once and again. ;-)
Thanks for your time,
Klein Maetschke, co-founder of this here watering hole
Have started work on a re-design of my portfolio, have had a lot of new work of recently so thought it
would be a good idea to do a revamp. I had a portfolio online a while ago, but pulled the plug as just did'nt
have time to update it, but with this small portfolio I plan to keep things to a minimum.
Posted a SS here let me know what you think, written purely in CSS.
It's been a long time since I've posted here and I'm glad to be back. I'm even happier to introduce a new website that I've been developing for around four months now. Although it's still under heavy development I thought it'd be a great idea to hear some suggestions/critique from the community I value so much. Well, here it is...
In essence, Classbind is a place where students are able to connect with their teachers in an extraordinarily easy manner. But that's just small thinking, we wanted to go big. By next year, Classbind will be a major competitor to Blackboard. It will have a beautiful, easy to use interface allowing teachers to report attendance, grades, and assign homework, as well as a plethora of other features. Right now we are working a bunch on the business side and always looking for investors, so if anyone has any people in mind (including themselves), don't be shy! As we continue on this process I will no doubt be posting updates here to hear what everyone thinks! We are always open to some extra help, or suggestions or really anything. Please shoot me an email if you have any questions at Josh[at]classbind.com
Thanks to everyone, hope everyone's having a great summer!]]>

-What is the max resolution that my Macbook model can output?
-Would my model work well with a monitor? As in, would it be very cpu-consuming, causing my computer to run at max power, loud fan and what not?
Any other input and advice on the subject is more than welcome, cheers!]]>
This is what Im thinking about updating my site to look like this
