Yes, I was forcing a refresh from the menu. Clearing the cache didn't
work...however (and this is a big however)...
When I looked at the directory structure I realized I had added the 32
repo when I did the install and not 33. Could swear I had added master
but that's what happens when you do an install before coffee.
I grabbed the themes from the 32 version of the url you gave and
installed TintedGlass directly. I'll try and upgrade to master this
weekend if I have a chance.
Thanks so much for your help.
