    With all of these talented people around, how come none of the TLC websites have a address bar / bookmark icon? Or is it just my browser not picking it up?

    Yes it would! If I had the image I could convert it to a "ICO" file.

    Thanks Mac, If you click the thumbnail you get a better view. Yes I believe it would do the trick for all of the Laughingbird sites.. If you need one for your site just let me know..

    I did one for my site along time ago, but never did for the new one once I changed host over. I guess I probally should.

    Hi DR!

    hey, very cool!
    I've wanted a little URL icon for quite awhile, I just never got around to it.
    (Not sure I even know how to install it correctly so that it shows up in the address bar).

    I would very much appreciate it Troy.
    Very cool.

    - Marc

    Okay Marc,
    I wasn't sure how to get it to you, so here it is in a zip file with simple instructions. For the forum installation you might want to consult Lats?
    When you done just remove this post.

    Awesome Troy!
    Thanks very much for this - http://www.thelogocreator.com
    has its first Favicon! :D

    (it only reads with Mozilla browsers however. IE can't see it). ?
    I'll research this a bit more.

    Thanks again DR!
    I've learned something today :)

    Hey Marc,
    In IE try adding the link to your bookmarks and select replace old link. That is when it will show up in IE. Now when a vistor returns to that link they will see it. example below.
