Now that I have you bubbling over with enthusiasm, I'll leave you with some other icon resources you can seek out, should you hit a snag. There are an awful lot of pixel-pushin' places to visit out there. But if you go to
places such as the GUI
Galaxy, Pseudoroom, or the IconFactory to get handy tips, enter contests, or download the latest versions of their desktop icons, you won't be
