Custom SETI at Home skin for Boinc

Dunno why I didn't do this a while back,
but heres a custom SETI skin for Boinc..



If your interested in making your own, download this template file  (svg, can be edited in Illustrator or Inkscape)
and then follow these steps:

1) make a copy of one of the existing skins.
(on windows theyre at C:\Program Files (x86)\BOINC\Skins

2) Copy it to a non C: folder so you can edit it without admin permissions.

3) Use the template file to replace your own background and logo. Save over the existing png file
eg: in the screenshot below its the file called "background_image.png




4) (you can skip this step if you like)
Open the "skin.xml" file in notepad and update all relevant links and names
eg:

5) save and close the cml file, rename this folder to your skin's name. Copy it to the Boinc skin directory, on windows - C:\Program Files (x86)\BOINC\Skins

6) exit and reopen boinc.

7) In the top menu go to View/Skin and click on your skin.

Have fun!
