    Keep in mind this isn't just like rewriting an essay for English, it's code and a single line can take upwards of an hour to write so that it works. Microsoft programmers on average, produce ten lines of workable code per day.

    Do you want to rewrite the 15 pages of code to change the icon?

    Newbies will often probably learn about the system when they get their first comment or points.

    I do think we could brighten up the icon so that it grabs some more attention than it currently does. Changing the size or layout or what have you though... that's a whole nother animal, and not a small critter at that.

      Reminder: 21 x 17 pixels. Can you draw two thumbs, one pointing up and one pointing down so that it looks remotely like anything we'd recognize in that amount of space?

      I'm sure we can improve the icon. I'm not certain we can get a high degree of detail into it though.

        Yeah, I think it's pretty hard to have 21 X 17 and still have detail.

          Sorry Alastor. I was just fishing for ideas.

          I dont know squat about lines or code. I was just trying to give my idea to make it more visible, that's all.

            Trust me, I know jack about it also, all I know is that it's a very complicated system.

                  The "Endless Catalyst" pic is neat.

                  No need to apologize. Always ask questions. I apologize if I came off any way other than open about it.

                  I'm not even saying it's not doable.. just mentioning what all's involved with it if they chose to go that way (and we actually discussed it when we put the system in).

                  And of course Bronco's Manager makes the final call on that stuff I suspect. I'm just the peanut gallery.

                  Keep it coming. I mean... I do think you're right, a lot of folks still don't know about it. it never hurts to ask. Just that this one would be a major project, bigger than the installation of everything I did before, easily.

                    Ah, I see. Thanks for the props. I literally put that together in 30 seconds. The saving and hosting took a bit longer but I made the pic in litterally 30 seconds, not meaning to brag of course/

                      Sounds like someone is just being a bit lazy to me

                        Though I wouldn't mind trying if the team will cover my bail and legal fees.

                            Yeah, the more it's used the more it will catch on. It's a self-fullfilling prophecy. So sayeth the drunk guy.
