I tried to dnl from here and Safari turns into all black question marks and other text. This is only related to this particular download. I trid to dnl other programs from other pages and it doe not do the same thing.

I tried to download it from the Dev's site but Safari says Safari can't open “guikit://www.maxthemes.com/themes/downloads/tiger/Aluminum%20Alloy%201.7.guiKit” because Mac OS X doesn't recognize Internet addresses starting with “guikit:”. when I clcik on the download for 1.7.

this is a great theme that's easy on the eyes and everything is clear and looks good. I hate all the darker ones that i struggle with (and i've a decent TFT monitor!). This is a good theme - well designed :)
thank you!

Aesthetically pleasing, beautifully integrated visually and functionally, and with oodles of "wow" factor.

What more can I say? It even passed the "cynical daughter" test!

I love this theme, and would like to comment that Max Rudburgh is not American or English, he's from the Stockholm area, so the aluminum thing is a misplaced argument, I also think Americans use Aluminum as a brand name.

No, you are wrong, and "it ain't over 'til it's over" (to quote the great linguist Yogi Berra)... Before it was named aluminium the name for the metal was A-L-U-M-I-N-U-M. So, it appears that American English stayed with the more original version of the word. You know, 'tradition' and all that.

From the website you posted the link to:
"1808 Sir Humphrey Davy proposed the name ALUMIUM for the metal. This rather unwieldy name was soon replaced by ALUMINUM and later the word ALUMINIUM was adopted by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemists in order to conform with the "ium" ending of most elements."

About the president of the Yoo Ess Ay, he is a total disgrace, agreed. Abominable. And I find it abhorrent that anyone could seriously consider him to be a Christian. If the Second Coming is nigh, he's in a world of trouble.

Bush is not my president. I don't support him whatsoever!

Americans say aluminum because this is the elemental name for it. The English say Aluminium because this is a brand name for aluminum -- just like Reynolds wrap is a brand name for aluminum foil, or is that aluminium foil???

Thought you'd want to know.

This is because English speak English properly. It's their language, did you know...?

Since 70% of native English speakers speak American English, I think we can safely state that the correct way of speaking is American English. :-)

You can say that if you like but the whole story is slightly more complex. The Oxford English Dictionary - the worldwide recognised repository for the correct spelling and pronunciation of the English language - spells that particular element 'aluminium', not 'aluminum'. There is a different form of the language known as 'Received English' which includes 'aluminum' but it's considered a less correct set of the language by English scholars. However it is true that English doesn't have a legally standardised 'correct' version the way some languages - notably French - do.

In the end of course it doesn't actually matter to 99.99% of the population provided everyone knows the two words mean the same thing.

The Toxic version is still my favorite daily theme. Never fails to be intuitive and eye-pleasing and it's bright enough that I can adjust the brightness on my powerbook to save energy.

Americans say :

"AL-OOM-IN-UM"

English say:

"AL-YOU-MINI-UM"

why is that ?
