    Huw, why do you use typed smileys rather than the emoticons? Just wondered.....

    I use the same emoticons I've always used - that is, always since I've been on the internet (i.e. since before the WWW, and long before the plague of binary emoticon files on web-based forums). They're universal, working on any typed interface, regardless of the application; they are economical with bandwidth and don't fill up browser cache unnecessarily; they appear as intended even if someone is browsing with image download turned off, and so on. I just can't think of any value in the gif versions of basic emoticons whatsoever - they seem to me to be completely worthless, so I just carry on doing what seems sensible to me. I can't prevent all the needless bloat on a forum like this where they're built in to the actual software, whether I use them or not, but I can continue to set what I think is a better example by not using them when there is no need for them, and at the very least it means I can carry on typing in exactly the same way as I type everywhere else on-line, whether in e-mail, SMS, USENET, or the web.

    Simple! :)

    Picture thread now closed. Great response everyone - thanks for your efforts. As usual anyone with a late submission should pm me and we'll arrange a re-opening of the thread later in the month.
