    Not sure if you're familiar with this, but a lot of sites now have icons associated with their site (I'm pretty sure they're called favicons). I love sites that use them as it makes them much quicker to locate on my bookmarks list (as they have a pretty icon next to the name).

    It wouldn't be too hard to make one for TB and I know I'd appreciate it. Just a little esthetics idea :p

    You just make a 16x16 pixel .ico file with the logo and put a reference to it in your header.

    More info here .

    Anyways, I just thought I'd mention it. :D

    Ok, I've put a little bass cleff in for a favicon. Not too thrilled with it but it'll do for now :) You'll probably have to clear your browser's cache and history, delete any current TB bookmarks, then re-bookmark for it to show up (I did).
