Send big files the easy way. Files too large for email attachments? No problem!

Could anyone use the TF2 logo (http://liti4.files.wordpress.com/200...ng?w=256&h=256) and make them into start orbs for me and a few friends? Requests are; that inside a black orb, that except coloured with shading in a similiar style to the windows logo, same as first except as big as the orb without the orb just a transparent background, same as second except as big as the orb without the orb just a transparent background.

EDIT: I tried installing Grim's Ultimate Icon Pack and it caused many problems, I think because I didn't extract it before I used it. Would it be alright to use it again?

Also some start icons on this thread look shrunk when applied, don't show up, show the taskbar line through them or shrink even farther (like the Start button in the style of XP, that one shrinks down to the size of the orb). Fixes?

Hi! This is my start orb



I made it from this: orb by ~ElrondMcStyle on deviantART
It's too bad that we can use only bmp-s where the black must be transparent

good one that, only i think it'd look better with the rim left around it.
