Duncan, thank you for all you’ve done for the XBMC community. The XBMC community lost it's best designer tonight.

Any chance of at least giving us an idea of how you intended the rest of the skin to look?

Thanks dhj for all the work you've put in and for helping to spread XBMC to so many with Aeon. Good luck wherever you go, you will be missed. Come back any time

Well, if you can stumble your way to the up/down menu in one of the media views, you'll see how that was intended to work. All text with some slick little fade and zoom stuff happening. The context menus would have been the same, basically, but with a vertical orientation.
I had no ideas at all for any other sections that aren't in the video or code you've got there. That said, I think what is there should at least give someone a firm indication.

You will forever be appreciated and remembered, because of your efforts I think everyone in the community stepped up their game as far as skins, and XBMC turned into not just a way to get to the videos, but a way to really show off an interface. You were the inspiration for all that and everything that is to come. I thank you.

I just want to say thanks, Duncan, for all the incredible work you've done, I think it's safe to say that you've definitely helped push the limits of what a media center is capable of! I've been eagerly waiting the arrival of Alaska, and I'm certainly sad to hear that you're moving on, but I wish you all the best in your "real life" endeavours. Thanks again!

Thanks for the comments. I'm just sorry I never had the wherewithal to actually finish what I started. It's not easy doing that kind of thing on your own, especially when you start going down avenues you're not really happy with. I was never quite the artist I needed to be to really pull Aeon off, I don't think. Alaska would have been different but it just happened at the wrong time. Hopefully, though, someone will see it through.
I should add a big, big thank-you to the folks who donated a few months back. Again, I'm sorry that I couldn't convert that into something more substantial for you guys, though it did at least result in enough of Alaska to maybe inspire someone else.

Wow, this is such a lovely clean interface. Looks amazing on my TV from the couch. Thanks so much for releasing what you had completed and letting other people lose on it, it's a really nice gesture.

Your skins are good, but Alaska blew them all away, IMO...I hope this gets finished
