Pre-weekend update... Site News
We're now about three weeks into Panther's release, so I thought I'd give a little "where are we" update relative to the site. Since October 24th, there have been over 500 hint submissions, with 216 Panther-specific hints (out of 303 total) published during that time. This is about the normal publication ratio (close to 33% of the submissions are duplicates), just at much higher volumes than I'm used to seeing! Simply amazing ... thanks to all the hint contributors and commenters who have helped unearth Panther's secrets at an amazingly rapid pace.

I'm still about a week behind on submissions, with roughly 200 or so in the queue. So if you've sent something in recently and you haven't seen it yet, I probably just haven't gotten to it. Also, some of the longer hint submissions from earlier are still in the queue as well (as they take longer to edit). I hope to catch up a bit more on the older stuff this weekend, and then be fully caught up no later than the week of Thanksgiving, when I'll be taking some time off work to spend on site updates.


Hey, thanks for clicking the Read More link! :) Just for that, check out the sneak peek at an in-progress "dark" theme for macosxhints ... coming soon for those of you who have free accounts here (themes are available only to registered users).

I've been working on this in my spare time over the last week or so, and it's starting to look pretty sharp. One side benefit of the project is that the site's header has been cleaned up considerably, and those changes will be carried through the other themes when this new theme is launched ... which will be "when it's done!" :)

Have a great weekend!

I agree with by. Additionally, that new dark theme looks pretty nifty!

Yeah, I'd like to add my hints too. I'm pretty new to Macs and Unix - I switched in January. These hints have opened my eyes to a whole load of stuff that is hidden away in or under the GUI. I am beginning to get a grip!

So thank, Rob, for all the work you've put into this.

I meant add my thanks, not add my hints! Slip of the keyboard. Having said that, I did manage to get my iMac and Win2K machines to network over airport this week, so I am feeling pretty pleased with myself at the moment!

There really should be an aqua theme...I don't like any of the themes here! Something less orange and neon than Color ____s and something less murky and dark than this new theme and Classic. I could design one...:)
