I'd like to point out that the Friday, 12/26 strip is funny only if you've ever left a cup of hot chocolate out overnight. Or even better, for a few days. You wouldn't believe the foul stuff that grows in it...

You wanted bigger strips? You got 'em. This is the last time I upgrade the size for a good long while, though, so I hope you're happy.

I was bored the other day at work, so I whipped up something I've been needing for a while - link icons! Here are two 88x88 link icons for your site, one for dark background and one for light backgrounds.

Honestly, though, I have no idea what size icons people need for their sites. Is there a specific aspect ratio you need? Let me know about it on the message board and I'll whip one up for you.
