    Cyclone Fanatic symbol in the URL box...cool

    Maybe I am completely oblivious, but this is the first time that I have seen the site symbol in the address box next to the URL. That is pretty cool.

    On the otherhand, can football get here any sooner...if I am commenting about the symbol in the URL it's time for football.

    Anyways thats cool Jeremy...even if it's not new!

    Re: Cyclone Fanatic symbol in the URL box...cool

    Hey Jeremy - I'm thinking about doing something similar on a Website that I manage. First, what program did you use to create the icon, and second, is it a standard 32x32 pix icon or a 16x16?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    I noticed the new logo in the URL box and in the Firefox favorites after the latest server move. Before that, it was a small CF I think.

    yep, fav.ico, these are actually really easy to implement and add a nice touch to your website.

    Yup, just a standard 16x16 favicon.ico image. I actually have an animated one but left it off so I didn't annoy anybody with a rotating gif.

    On a similar note, you might not see it right away if you use IE as it's pretty antiquated when it comes to handling favicons and doesn't always pick them up due to caching and "stuff".


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Cyclone Fanatic symbol in the URL box...cool

    I actually have Firefox 2 installed, but I'm not getting it on my favorites bar (only the URL box). FF used to do some funky stuff with pages that didn't have favicons, and so for quite a while, my CF favorites button has had the favicon of another site. But now, even after CF has its own icon, I can't get it to show up. Even deleting the bookmark and re-adding it doesn't do it. Ideas?

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
