Thanks go to Bravo Romeo Delta at Anticipatory Retaliation where I first found out about this. By the way, AR has recently ditched BlogSplat in favour of the luxurious accomodations at Munuviana, so check out their new bunker if you want the latest intel.
The second tidbit is of the cool! goodies! variety. For those of us who use Yahoo's Instant Messenger, there is actually a bunch of additional hidden emoticons available for use. You use them by typing their text equivalents. which causes them to show up as regular emoticons in the conversation window. I found printing them out for reference was the easiest way to use them. Somebody I yak with a lot likes the cowboy, and I particularly get a kick out of the hugger. Check 'em out.
