I've finished loading everything (buttons, logos, style sheets for the skins, all images used in the skins) onto the board itself. I also have removed the clock code which slowed things down somewhat. Everything should be running at optimal speed now. I hope you may have noticed an improvement in speed on the board over the last few weeks?
If so, please thank BXCanada for giving me the terrific idea in the first place! :)
I still have one more porject--to see if I can get the default skin to stop "seeping through" onto other skins but I'm pleased with my progress on the board so far. Hopefully, some of you are too. :)
