Goodness gracious, small balls of fire

Small balls of fire
Some indistinguishable icons yesterday.

I must be getting old. Either that, or my eyes are going. I keep launching the wrong programs from my Windows Start menu. I must have done it a dozen times in the last couple of days. It's starting to get really annoying.

The thing is, to an ageing codger like me, all the desktop icons these days are starting to look remarkably similar. They all seem to be round, with wavy lines or flames shooting out of them. Very much like the old Fireball club pendant/logo from Bullet comic in the 1970s, in fact (don't ask).

Call me old-fashioned, but isn't the whole point of icons supposed to be to help you distinguish one program from another?

Well, then!
