Q: What's that banner graphic at the top of the index page about, then?



A: I have no idea. The figure on the left apears to be holding a GPS receiver, but it could be something else entirely. The figure on the right might resemble a well-known geocacher - if you narrow your eyes and sort of look sideways at it... Confused

Didn't you register your likeness, you could've sued Microsoft for infringement.

The original Screenbeans graphic came from clipart supplied with Sun's Staroffice 7 suite, and had nothing whatever to do with (hawk, spit) Microsoft.

However, I admit that it's not very good - so if there are any graphics maestros out there who could provide a more unique and appropriate alternative (needs to be 100x100 or close), please contact me.
