Call To Irssi Users Everywhere

I'm currently getting tired of my theme (madcow) that I've been using in Irssi. It's been my main theme since practically the day it was released, which was probably a couple years ago. It's been good, but I'm ready for something new. So, if you use Irssi, and use a theme other than the default provided, I'm interested. I'm following this post at as well.

  1. What theme do you use?
  2. Why do you use that theme?
  3. Please post a screenshot or a link to one (not a link to the theme) in the comments.

    I use two. My favorite is a modified version of "Industrial" (I changed the timestamp to somethhing more sensible, removed the unessisary : from the prompt, removed the [industrial] bit from the status bar, and a few other tweaks)

    I also use liten, which I think I might have changed slightly.

    I use them both because they are fairly simple, both easy to read, and I like the look of them.

    For my main IRC (idling :P) client, I use liten, and on the same machine I run another instance of irssi connected to Bitlbee for MSN Messenger - Which uses Industrial.
    I also have a client on another machine for my new site's local IRC.
    They could probably all go into the one client, but I prefer having them seperated.

    Links to the original themes:

    Screenshot of both (Running in iTerm, connected to a remote machine) (Don't particular like ImageShack, but it's handy)

    I would upload the modified versions but the changes are very small, the biggest one being the timestamp format to [18:54]

    Not really part of the theme, but an important visuals, but the script. [ ]

    I use laaama-2 from . The screenshot there is rather funky, having a background picture, but it works well without one too. I use the Tango colour scheme in gnome-terminal. The irssi theme is rather minimal and unobtrusive.

    1. roses, dark_winter or spring (all by me, first one published on
    2. I've personally tuned them from existing skins (en, hukkka) to suit my own purposes and they match the colors I usually use on my desktop themes
