Myriobiblos Desktop themes
« on: November 10, 2005, 05:32:38 PM »
I realize this is not a board-orientated or related question, but the Myriobiblos website has a Windows Desktop theme available for download. Three times in the past year or so I've been suckered in and downloaded it only to find it password protected. Nowhere on the site can I find a password or a place to request one and three emails to the 'webmaster' have gone unanswered. Anybody here had any luck installing this theme?

Not a problem, this forum is for any technical questions (board or not-board related).

As far as an answer...I couldn't tell ya! Maybe someone else knows.

Thanks Bizzlebin, but that does not work for me. Requesting the "code" fails. Pilot error?

Would it work if I tried to get the code and gave it to you? Or is each download protected by a different one?

Hey , that would be great if it works. My experience is there usually is only one password, not a dynamically generated one.

No luck  :-\

Can't seem to find the file and/or server. It seems to be a problem on their end. I also checked Google to see if the password was publicly posted, but nothing :-[

Bummer (very old term for you youngin's)

Maybe I'll try direct email again. An Orthodox Theme is too tempting...
