The Avalon Winamp Skin

Is there any place to find the Avalon Ceilidh Winamp skin, or has that gone from the web completely?

I forgot to transfer it to a disk before my most recent formatting of my hard drive, but it has been the skin I have used since way back when.

If you're willing to wait a few months, I've got two: the Ceilidh one, and one I designed myself. Unfortunately, the hard drive they're on needs to be sent in to a data recovery facility, and I'm not sure when I'll be able to have that done.

Thank you! I had that skin on my old computer, continued using it on this one, even through several reformats, but this time it wasn't on the CDs I use for backups. (And I couldn't put it on the CD when I noticed it was missing, because that was why I had to reformat - Windows wasn't recognizing my CD drives after I installed the latest version of ITunes (?!)

You're in luck, at least for the Ceilidh skin. It turns out I had a backup copy sitting on my webserver: http://statspage.dyndns.org/~mark/Avalo ... eilidh.wsz

Before you send your drive in somewhere and pay large costs to have it checked, try this program: http://www.uneraser.com/ The demo won't let you recover anything, but it will let you know if you'll be able to recover the files with the full version which costs $60 US (much cheaper than data recovery facilities from what I remember when I needed it)

Hmm...I don't have Winamp, but this sounds cool...

<looks at the graphics in the directory>

:o

I'd forgotten about that drawing...kinda gives "Winamp skin" a new meaning, no?

Can the program handle a hard drive that is making clunking sounds and isn't recognized by the BIOS? Can it handle a hard drive in the ext3 format?
