  1. Is it a fake news website à la The Onion? The story looks weird. Any information appreciated.

  2. By the way, your captchas are very hard to read (I know this recaptcha system is neat and all, but still). Also, the way WordPress handles form input errors on submit is kind of lame, no back button, a pretty raw error page, you should look into that.

    By the way, good job on Banshee, I used to think it was lame, but the improvements that have been brought recently proved me wrong.

    I just have a question, not necesarily regarding Banshee itself, but probably more the Gnome stock icon as designed in Tango…


    Am I the only one to think that the “Home” icon just above the podcasts icon is very old school, lame and doesn’t fit in with the rest of the icons?
