Feigning normality since 1973

RIP Satellite Dish

Filed in: Misc.

LiveJournal are retiring the icon I made for linking syndicated accounts, so a moment of silence, please, for the satellite dish icon.

Teh satellite dish

I made that icon back in 2003 when they first introduced seperate icons for syndicated accounts, but now it's being replaced by a sparkly new orange jobbie. So sad.

Edit: and already someone's complained!

Is it too soon to start a campaign to bring back the satellite dish? The new one looks worryingly like one of those bland monocoloured icons that Microsoft brought in a few years back for the Office programs.

I'm tempted to write a greasemonkey script to change all the syndicated icons back. :)
