I don't know if it is just me, but the megaphone symbol that is next to the info box for the latest SSDR release looks like a thumbs down gesture. It was not immediately obvious what it was supposed to the the first time I saw it.

When you first look at it it certainly does look like a thumbs down.

Kinda like when you see the outline of Jesus in your slice of toast.  :)

Could it be a cultural/experiential difference? The fireman's glove in Europe, if I recall correctly, has a wide gauntlet to protect the forearm. While(st) here in the US it doesn't. So, most Americans would not see the glove and most Europeans would.

You fell into my trap, hi hi. I also thought that there was a glove there, but I did not know how to describe it so did not mention it. There maybe some psychology was to why you think it is a fireman's glove :-))), to me it looks like a knight's gauntlet! I bagsie ('get first dibbs' in USA English?)the psych's couch first.

It's like the ink blot tests...if you stare at the megaphone symbol long enough it can start to look like something else. In your case a "thumbs down" to others maybe it's looking like a 1.4.

To me, it looks like just a megaphone...but then I am compleeeeeetly normal....heh heh
