Is it my imagination or have the crosshairs moved from the second "i" in firing to the "i" in line? - Doc

Yes, it DID move to the right. Perhaps TFL is becoming more conservative...

Yup...'tis an elusive devil! Don't get too enamoured...it's due for retirement soon.

Say it ain't so, Joe!
It's quite hypnotic, and has preserved my sanity many a time while waiting for my decrepit chip to load pages.
I guess I just get attached to the little things in life. And thanks for the warning. My wires get crossed pretty easily when stuff like that happens.


P.S.-Gary, what's SWAG?

Wow, the windage has been corrected.

Noooo Rich. Please don't take away the gun. Put it to vote! Members arise, our leadership plans to disarm us of our Class III logo! Aux Arms! Nous sommes Trahis! Traison! Aux Arms! Suave qui peut!

Boing - SWAG was used by Carlos Hathcock. It stands for Scientific Wild Ass Guess.

We've got (had) an ad agency working on the front page, links, library and logo since October. I keep rejecting what I see.

So the FN is up for grabs. Stay tuned and keep an open mind. We can always change it back.

How 'bout an Eagle & a Kangaroo back to back each holding a pair of Gold plated Para's ? ;)

"The Gun from Down Under !"

You've found me out. The new graphic will be a picture of a deer driving an SUV with a big smile and a dead hunter lashed across the hood.

February 15, 1999, 05:34 PM
Will the deer's SUV have a bumper sticker,
"I brake for people"?

My initial comeback you would have to edit out. So, "Aha!" :) :)

BTW, "Guess who's coming to dinner!" (heh, heh)

When you've been away from people to long and someone ask you to dinner, Ya don't know if you will be the main quest or the main course. I haven't been around long but I sure like the logo and now your going to change it? I quess I missed the vote?

Dennis, It's all up to Rich. It's his - literally!

Rich, one thing please: If The Gun is retired, could there be a pre-announced day and time when the crosshairs settle smack on the dot... and with a burst of .50 full auto HIT the danged thing?
Seeing it dithering about the target has been ennervating to say the least

How about a top view of Ma Deuce with belt moving to the right, endlessly?
