damn the old *moving files in the site menu on dreamweaver* trick : )

i probably messed up the javascript.  i was going to re-write most of it in a
much less verbose manner than what dreamweaver does, but right now i'm just
trying to make sure that what i want to do is possible -- before i get eyeballs
deep in javascript this weekend.

i'm stuck between using it as navigation, identification and general
information like the date / time / site location.  originally it was going to
be just a nice anchor at the top of the page -- without it the background image
looks oddly out of proportion.  the i decided that it should be some kind of
navigation.  but to what i'm not sure.  navigation that is separated into 2
different places on the page would confuse users.  i just don't know yet.

this is sort of a novelty.  i would like to have more of these icons, but i
couldn't come up with a way to make it liquid against the image background.  so
i ended up with just one that becomes a *home* button.  maybe that's just lame?

thanks for the comments.
