isn't Black Tab a patrick swayze movie?

some responses... of course, we have to assume that *any* of us 
is willing to gut and rebuild the entire blacktabnavthingie 
considering all the hassle i went through forever ago, and mccreath 
went through getting it all kosher... this may sound simple to you, 
but under the current circumstances, it makes me wince...

as for your suggestions, well, they look too damn big to me... the 
tab is too wide, and the logo is pushed down and in too far... as if 
the tab only came about because we couldn't fit the logo... and the 
buttons look off-balance in the center...

but that's just my opinion...

some of that is my doing, as well... the logo was smaller, but i 
wanted to enlarge it a bit to make cleaner aliased-edge squares...
