Halloween Galore

So there have been quite a number of reactions to the Halloween theme – ranging from “We loved it.” to

…animal and human sacrifices as well as rape in the name if Satan.

(Copied verbatim from the TextMate Blog.) I won’t comment on that other that I’ve apparently turned into a Satanist overnight. Obviously.

[REMOVED] TextMate no longer pays tribute to human sacrifices, rape, nor does it show a picture of the God of the deaths in your dock – ticket 945BEB5D

Alas, let’s rejoice! A new build is out and the Halloween Icon and Spiderweb Background are gone. But there seem to be some people who actually liked it! Crazy guys. So here is the Halloween icon (28kB zip file) for download. Move it to /Applications/ and you have the pumpkin back. I’ve also put up a high resolution version on Flickr. is the homepage of Stanley Rost, iOS/Mac software developer and TextMate enthusiast from Berlin, Germany. I’m 31 years old and I’ve been around the web since 1998.

I’m a graduate of Leipzig University of Applied Sciences (HTWK Leipzig) and I’m currently self-employed after working for six years at eWerk IT GmbH. Contact me at
