SQL Server Management Studio Colors and Themes

I have become quite fond of darker color themes in Visual Studio. Once you get used to it, it is a bit harsh to go back to the white background of SSMS. It is sort of a bummer that the "Import and Export Settings" tool that is available in VS is not available in SSMS. There is a settings file at C:\Users\(me)\Documents\SQL Server Management Studio\Settings\CurrentSettings-(date).vssettings, but I didn't want to waste time dorking around with it. I just found a tool here that imports your settings from VS into SSMS. I downloaded the source, but the project didn't work for me, but since it is really just a one file console app, I made a new project for it. It is super fast and looks great.
