Introducing the... Ratatouille Mood Theme

I'm pleased to report I now have a sharable Ratatouille custom mood theme, just in time for Further Confusion! Just download the zip file, follow the included instructions and share the ratty goodness.

Unfortunately, I found out that I am not the first to have this bright idea. If I'd known earlier I might not have bothered with my own project so it's probably just as well. The talented upsa_daisy has also done a Ratatouille mood theme. Theirs is more impressive, seeing as it covers 132 moods and is fully animated. I like to think that mine caters to those who (like myself) find animated moods distracting. Also, mine has a slightly stronger ratty focus.

Your Ratatouille mood theme is very good Marko.

And yes, I also find animated moods a distraction from the post essence itself. So, therefore find yours to be more impressive.

Hooray :) I definitely prefer the non-animated one (the animated one along with being distracting is very data heavy compared to what you did; I like that all of the images are 20k or less.) Rattier focus is also a plus :)

One suggestion to augment the instructions if you get the itch to change them:

- In Step 3, mention that you need to be logged into LJ before going into the Admin Console. The link you put in there for it is a huge help, but it jumps in without giving you the bar across the top telling you if you're logged into LJ etc. (It probably barfs if you're not logged in, but I'm a fan of foolproof instructions... I'm used to having to work with some pretty dense users :) )
