If anyone wants to finish Alaska... - djh_ - 2009-09-11 22:35
Here it is.
As most of you have probably figured out, despite whatever optimistic comments I've made, I have no time any more for XBMC. None whatsoever. My personal and professional lives have reached that point, and I've frankly fallen out of love with the whole thing anyway. I knew when I started looking at other media centres for a good long-term interface (and didn't find one, of course) that it was time to stop pretending.
So here's the small amount Alaska that came together, which basically contains the content of that old video and little more. If someone wants to pull some folks together and make a coordinated effort to finish it, they're welcome. And if people would rather just make piecemeal changes and do whatever, then go right ahead.
I'll consider myself a consumer from now on, waiting impatiently (of course!) for phyek and minimalko to finish their opus, which must be a no-brainer for best up-and-coming XBMC skin. Just knowing how phyek works and how high he sets his standards leaves me in little doubt.
I doubt I'll visit these forums much more, if at all. The Aeon/Alaska website, meanwhile, will be edited to reflect the reality of things.
Thanks, then, for entertaining me over the last year or so - it's been fun. Over and out.

Well damn, so long and thanks for all the fish!
In all seriousness thanks for all your efforts Duncan, your talents will be missed.

Guess we might as well go ahead and open an "Alaska" forum...
Let the mods begin.

Well that sucks but then again I've been dieing to play with one of these new skins that have been in development.

Well mcborzu Ellipsis is almost here, Xperience (which both are obviously being underestimated immensely) has a massive following here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=45768, you'll get to play with WORKING, not HALF done, or BARELY working version of them soon.

Oh dont underestimate my anticipation for Xperience I've been watching that thread since it was at 300 views and I have accounted for probably 1-2k in views just myself. Love your orginal mockups for that skin and how it's developing so far...
Alaska was the other skin that really had my attention...

I was definitely a fan of Alaska and had high hopes for it, hopefully someone (or a group of individuals) will pick it up and finish the skin as it definitely looked quite promising.
On the other side of things, Im definitely amped to see Xperience see the light of day, and being fully completed and officially released!!

Thanx for everything
