The Dreaded Deadline Demon!


  1. DShultz says:

    Nice job – it works well small (96×96) as well for an IM display image!

  2. totopo says:

    Ha! I’ve been using this as my “leave me alone” IM image, although it doesn’t scale so gracefully to the iChat 28×28 dimensions. I crop in to the clock-chewing.

  3. Tom says:

    I don’t know what to say to that, gentlemen. I’m flattered, but you do realize that you shouldn’t just take any image you want to from the internet and use it for whatever you want to use it for? You should at the very least ask permission of the creator, be it myself or anyone.

  4. DShultz says:

    Sorry ’bout that… I change the image frequently, and that never occurred to me.

    Right now my display image is now my kid’s portrait of me – I should be pretty safe there 🙂

  5. totopo says:

    hmm… not sure you realize what I’m using it for. it’s just a little icon that my mother and a few friends see when I show up on their chat. I’ve already pointed a few of them to your site when they asked what it is.

    I must say I’m a little shocked and a little offended by your reaction. Let’s just say I’ve removed it from my batch of chat icons just like I’ve removed your site from my bookmarks, which should prevent any further impropriety.

  6. Tom says:

    You see… I knew someone would have that reaction. I guess that will sure teach me to try and educate people about right and wrong with respect to copyright on the internet. Shame on me. See my blog post today for more info.

  7. Tom says:

    Dschultz- thanks for your understanding, but you don’t need to stop using the image… you just needed to ask me if it was okay. You most certainly have my permission to use the Deadline Demon image as a chat icon.
