One of these days (looking like sooner than later) I'm going to get a blog kind of thing together. A place to put stories that have been over-hyped (ahem...) as well as videos.
I know what you mean though by not having your icon of choice. Skype has some good ones like the little bowing man, ninja and lunch-losing face. For now we'll have to content ourselves with the oldest and best of the bunch.
