Hey Farcaster
When are we going to get a favicon? Maybe a little 20 sided die looking pic?

It's a special icon that you place in the root of the website, which when the site is bookmarked, will be attached at the beginning of the url in your bookmarks list. Here's the Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favicon) entry.

Below is what it will look like in a favorites list.

Ah, so that's what those are called. Mebbe a quill and parchment?

I find that the favicon's display reliability to be varied depending on the browser you most use. Since I work in the web world, I have to use browsers that I would sometimes rather not use, and therefore, the favicons don't always show up. But they can be pretty cool depending on what they are.

How about these? I think the first one works better than the second ...

Edit: To see them as favicons, open them in a photo utility and save them as [filename].ico rather than [filename].bmp. Then right-click on a link (as shown above) and select properties to change the icon.

I agree with yukonhorror, the second one is better.

What about this one that I tend to like? It might be able to be sized down, not sure.

Unfortunately, they don't shrink well.

Take a look at the third one, made from the outline of the brass d20.
