  • Kewpid's one below is much nicer than the one I can see above.

  • To me it looks like a stripey turtle-beetle under a magnifying glass. Ruzuzu will be along in a minute to save it I guess.

  • All I see is a little blue box - but I'd guess it's just the right size for capturing the turtle-beetle and escorting it outside.

  • Another strange thing (explained, no doubt, by the vagaries of Unicode) is that the address bar displays it as ⚜, and the "Most Commented On" in Zeitgeist as some bizarre craudestopper faintly resembling an indented wristwatch.

    EDIT: aforementioned craudestopper can be seen in the above paragraph. I had been attempting to say that the address bar displays it rather as the ubiquitous rectangular box, which is also how it appears when I type my comment, but not when I publish it.

    EDIT 2: And, of course, in the Zeitgeist itself, the wee beastie looks like a's version all coloured in and miniaturised.

    EDIT 3: Just realised, also, that probably none of you will see the craudestopper the same way as I do. In which event, the description was worthwhile.
