Homestuck Start Orb by elrunethe2nd Homestuck Start Orb by elrunethe2nd
Its an improved version of my old start orb ([link]) for Windows 7 users, to make their computers live happier, more full lives.

I always promised i'd revisit this, and I did.

You need a tool doohickey to change the orb.

Now, its improved from the beta version. It has bevelling (my new passion), as well as a glow and shadow, and is less obtrusive than I felt the original was. It may well look terrible, however i've tested it and I don't think it does. Screenshots and feedback would be maaaarvelloous as always; as I aim to please.

==edit==
Now with two orbs. One has super MEGA blur and glow, and it's a bit nicer.
The other is for evenings that do not fall under the jurisdiction of friday, and require more austere and respectful detailing.

Whenever I try to make my own, a black square appears around it on mouseover and then fades away. How do I avoid this?

It's just a .PNG (or .BMP? I forget), so yeah, sure. No big deal.
Making it was pretty simple to begin with, so I'm not fussed about edits.

If you upload it here, just say you edited it from me or something if it still looks hugely similar.
