Added a new "mouse-over" icon to the bottom right "Tips" widget.
Also added my Kineticons, Cursors, 1.2.3Hotline TalkingBar, and ICQ1.9 faceliftv5a to the Downloadz page for you to download free.

I went for a trip to the nearest city today... Everywhere I looked I could see major flooding!
I had to travel over a very tall, long, single-laned bridge on the main state-highway. It normally towers a good 20M above the water...
Today, great giant, dirty brown, standing-waves were leaning over the sides of the bridge! It was an awesome sight... not to mention, seriously scary!
I am back home now... therefore I must have crossed it twice.
And the bridge is still standing.

Episode 2 in the saga of the sad ibook.
After running Nortons Utilities and AntiVirus.. I found over 400 seriously damage files!
Other than one of the System files, almost all are less than important, or well backed up, to my relief. These files all appeared to have gone faulty during the last crash. HD seems ok.
Three minor PC virus files were also found. (A couple of Word files and a RTF)
I am gradually going through and replacing or deleting all the damaged files.

I have also uploaded my first set of 32bit icons

The ibook died on thursday... =( here is the story:
I was running OS 9.0.4 with multiple Users. On thursday I tried compressing a very large file with Stuffit Deluxe 5.5, and for some reason, it crashed. The crash apparently corrupted the stuffit Magic Menu file.. which then wouldn't allow the "main user" of the ibook to log-on. Since none of the other users had access rights to the extensions or control panels... it became rather difficult to fix the problem. However after booting up off a CD.. I managed to remove and track down the guilty party (corrupted stuffit extention).
All seemed well... until on Friday, after trying to use the contextual menus (ctrl-click) on a desktop file. I had another major crash! ... This time, on boot up... I was greeted with a nice smiley face. =) But it never went away! =( this did not look so good. After Zapping the Pram (child included), attempting to boot off a number of unbootable CD's, stressing a lot, I eventually found a reliable, bootable CD. Happy happy joy joy!...
I then clean installed OS 8.6 (the original CD that came with the ibook).
On reboot, this then gave me a nice clean boring orange desktop, that felt very unfamiliar. It was going.... but I wanted my ibook back.
After cleaning out enough space to allow another clean install of OS 9, (it was very full), I then installed the OS 9, followed by the OS 9.0.4 upgrade, and then freshly installed Stuffit Deluxe 5.5 to replace the previously damaged version. Then I replaced the original Extension folder, Control panel folder, Preferences folders, and all other important folders from the old System folder.
My friendly ibook was back!=)

All seems happy...ish. However I have noticed that the Appearance Control Panel seems to be struggling to recognise some desktop pictures (for an as yet unknown reason) and the Contextual menu function (ctrl-click) is seriously unhappy. Control-Click seems to force quit what ever Application I am in.
hmmmm. More doctoring is needed.

By the way... the Littlest Dragonette is coming to stay for a week.
I wonder if she has learned to breathe flames yet? =)
