I came up with an idea for which I haven't got the time but would like to see nonetheless. I'm hereby dontating it to the world in the hope that someone who's less lazy will steal it.
Ever see a screenshot of somene's desktop and you're wondering what that odd-looking icon does? Well, so do I. Hop to it! Create an online database where people can upload gif files and add a description, including OS, version number etc.
Ideally this should have multiple ways to identify an icon, one of which would be like those determination tables biologists use when identifying a plant.
1. Is the icon round? Yes, go to 10.
10. Is it green? Yes, go to 12.
12. Does it have a letter in the icon? Yes, go to 15.
15. Is the letter a d? Yes, go to 20.
20. Macromedia Dreamweaver MX (Mac, Windows):
I'm sure you see the potential.
By the way: a colleage told me that her jpeg pictures now have the icon of a squashed frog. Anyone know which program this refers to?
