Slightly Modified Solarized Color Scheme for urxvt

I like urxvt for it’s lightweight and Unicode support. And I like the Solarized color scheme for terminal emulators.

Solarized color scheme looks awesome! It has two gorgeous color scheme: solarized dark and light. I use the former at night and the later while working in day time.

I find the directory highlighter color to be disturbing in the default solarized color scheme. Everything else is all right. So I modified the directory highlighter and got my most favorite terminal color schemes.
