    You know what's spooky? I've never set a user icon and just a few days ago I logged of by accident and BAM! There it was. That bass right there. Infact, I believe that happened to a few others aswell. I swear they're watching us.

    That reminds me of that movie "Dead man on campus" The crazy dude in the dorm thought Bill Gates was out to get him.

    I used that icon for awhile when I first got XP, but then I felt silly because I don't actually own a Tobias (so I made a Rickenbacker icon instead.)

    I was proud of my mom. She saw it and said "hey, there's a bass on my computer" :hyper:

    Even more impressive is that my dad, although a bassist early in life (high school years) was a guitarist when they met and married. But she used the appropriate four letter word. Niiiice.

    Yea that's a growler. It was funny because when I order my growler, we got XP the next day and there was the icon :)
