Welcome to Xymantix Online, my website that's home to my graphics and programming work. A couple of my programs, SysMetrix (a skinnable windows metering program) and Xtail (a Windows-based tail utility) are available for download from this site. Most of my skins and graphics are not available for download here, but I've uploaded most of them to various skinning sites such as:
WinCustomize Deviant Art SkinBase DeskMod Art Uproar

I finally got around to building a decent website. The last version was an atrocity that would embarass most anyone - especially someone who's graphically inclined! This new design is modeled after some of my NextStart themes. The menus on the left operate in a similar manner to the popups in NextStart, so if you like the way they work you may want to download NextStart and try it out if you haven't already.

All of the code for this site was meticulously written by hand in UltraEdit - one of the best programmer's and all-around editors there is. None of that FrontPage stuff for me! Also, I am able to change the site's entire look (or theme) to match some of my NextStart and WorkShelf themes. This way I can rotate the site's theme more easily as I get bored of it! Run a script and presto - the whole website sports a nifty new theme.
