The one in the top right corner of the site. I have no idea what it is supposed to look like, so what is it?

Looks very blob-like. Or perhaps like the fat head of a leprechaun who lost his eyes.

I always thought it was supposed to be a bell on a clock face?

Probably because I'm often on a phone screen but kind of makes me think of something like this:

I get what you mean now, but I still don't think that is it. Who designed the website?

This is a skin we grabbed to use with IPB. "Skin by CGN" ... whoever that is, and I tried looking and it leads no where.

I don't know what that icon is ;) But I can certainly go in and hack the files to replace it.

Yeah, it's an alarm clock, right? I had one (non-ironically) as a kid a damn long time ago. Scared the crap out of me every morning.

That icon has always reminded me of the way Peit Hein drew people's heads. For instance scroll down to see the two illustrations on this page: http://www.archimede...org/grooks.html
