Suffice it to say that if you knew Dayton (on that BB), you would understand.

I like , by the way.

Really the crucial question is which license are these emoticons going to be released under.

Thanks, Nobber. I thought it was a reference to a part of popular culture I know nothing about. But, tell me, what does Dayton think of having a gif image named after him - that gif in particular?

But back to the thread - that's what I was wondering, GMorgan. I suppose it has to be the same license as the official forum emoticons. I simply downloaded the "neutral" smiley and rewrote the source code (so to speak) in the GIMP. Smile

A lot of members on that forum have emoticons named after them. It's a sort of tradition.

I doubt he gives a hoot.

A few I think we might need:

sleepy
mug of coffee
an exploding computer (for those frustrating problems)

Just remembered, about a month ago 1sf (troll) was talking about rebuilding his computer or changing the m'board or something. If it wasn't for Towy saying he's swimming around in another forum, I'd have an image of a smoking, charred wreck of a computer with still-glowing shards embedded in the walls. Ah well. :sigh: Sad

Perhaps we shoudl have an emoticon signifying the indeterminate length of a piece of string. It might be useful.

But son't ask me what it should look like. Smile

Twice it's half-length, surely? Wink
