Very nice skin. The few icons supplied in the skin is redundant as Miranda already has a toolbar. Admittedly, the standard Miranda's toolbar can be turned off to use the skin toolbar. But then there is no "button" to set the general status. There is still some space in the skin toolbar, can you add this button?
For the button to open the options dialog. I understand you are inspired by Apple style. But personnally, I think that an image of an apple doesn't hint naturally that this is an option/setting.
