    I've been trying to avoid working and so was playing around with AD's favicon.

    It's just the "D" looks like it doesn't have enough room up there!
    Here are some ideas:

    I can try a few more. Any ideas whether an acorn or AD or other are best? Colours? I'll have a play around with them.

    Also I won't be sad if other people come up with a better favicon :(
    so bring the competition on.

    For those wanting to try (and don't know how) favicons are 16 x 16 pixel images saved as .ico files (although some other file formats work windows .ico is probably best)

    You can make them in a few packages - I made those in photoshop on Mac.

    Squirrels are so much more difficult to draw than acorns

    Here was my inspiration:

    Squirrels are great. And this place (new york) is full of 'em. And they eat acorns. Plus other nuts!

    In a way we are all like squirrels and our domains are our nuts - we gather them up and store them away... every now and again we'll let one go... ahhhh ;)

    BTW my faves are a2 and c4

    The only thing a squirrel has in common with the definition behind acorn domains is that people are a little long in the tooth and try and bury their nuts on here, so I'd go with a2 and an acorn as well although a1 could work, I still think with two eyes and a big grin that they could be outer mongolians though. A1 is ok.

    Not sure what a teabag has to do with anything... but I really can't get motivated again to work today.
