Custom Twhirl Scheme

Twhirl is a twitter client that has many features and has skin support. I recently found out that the twhirl twitter client uses xml files for its color schemes. For the fun of it I decided to make a color scheme that matched my site. If you feel adventurous and want to make your own just browse to the following folders on your respective os.

If you have never heard of twhirl grab your copy @ http://www.twhirl.org :)

Windows: C:\Program Files\twhirl\colorschemes
Mac: Right click, “Show Package Contents” then browse to “Resources/colorschemes”
Linux: /opt/twhirl/share/colorschemes (This may vary depending on where you opted to install twhirl to)

Pick your fav pre-installed color scheme and mod it to your liking.. be sure to change teh version info and the file name.

Anyway here is my custom one :)
Final version of my custom twhirl skin

Here is a paragraph from my review post i wrote earlier (Read review post with screenshots).

Mobile Colloquy is a pretty solid feature complete IRC client for iPhone OS 2.1 or newer. The interface is simple to use and is easy on the eye. It features : Visual styles just like the desktop version, mIRC colors/formatting support, graphical emoticons provided  you are running iPhone OS 2.2,multi network support,auto ident to nickserv, easy to understand error messages,auto joins,secure SSL connections, room & text encoding, and much more. Based on what it provides id say its fully worth it :) .
