HAL 9000 - Windows 7 StartOrb by Csiga42 HAL 9000 - Windows 7 StartOrb by Csiga42
First of all, this is not part of a theme, it's just a start orb for Windows 7.
I included a txt file with installation instructions.

Inspired by Stanley Kubrick's movie: 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the great Smooth HAL 9000 Vista theme from: :iconkokaine:

The zip now contains the BMPs, so you can use it with the button changer app.

I have this now and love it! It would be awesome if you could make it in a variety of different colors to match different themes people use. If you could do that I would be very grateful!

Trivia: SAL9000 was voiced by Candice Bergen in 2010 'The Year We Make Contact." I am the Tutor of Achilles, by the way; for now. I saw 2001 in '80 and the sequel in '84. Both films stand on their own even today. At 42 I can assure the rest of you whipper snappers that I feel just as young as my first day at preschool when I was 2 years of age. I just don't cry for my parents anymore. Thank you for uploading this. It will serve as my first download as a registered user.

Thanks for the wonderful but simple concept.

Also I am not sure if anyone in the posts knew or not but there was a blue eye as well. SAL 9000 was blue. Check out the 2001 sequel 2010 the Year We Make Contact made back in the early 80's. I know I am so old :)

Thanks for the kind words! :)

BTW: I watched the sequel since then, and even read Clark's book. It was a bit weird, but made things a bit clearer about the whole story.
