H.A.L.

Submitted By Richard Gilbert (dcentity2000)

Description

After watching 2001: A Space Odyssey, I got bored and decided to bring H.A.L. to my desktop. Luckily, there are already some great dock icons available on the XTras site; however, status icons were lacking, so I whipped this up.

The graphic started off based on this Deviant Art piece by ~NieSwiety. It was further photoshopped to resemble the red eye piece of the infamous computer.

If there's enough support, I'll make this into a Dock Icon too as it seems to be reasonably different from the existing ones here.

Changes

1.0 - Initial release
1.1 - Updated new message icon to a more acceptable size

I don’t see very much resemblance close-up. But when small, I guess it kind of looks like HAL…

I saw this in somebody's post in the screenshots thread (maybe yours) and didn't recognize the icons. When I squinted real hard, I guessed it was Hal. So before seeing this Xtra approved, I knew what it was supposed to be. I like the kind of softened design of the eye.

not too much resembling it exactly, but it does look pretty
Also, please tell what contact list style you're using ^_^

I like it, and it does look a lot like HAL9000. But there are a couple of problems. For one think, HAL doesn't have any sort of Aqua tinting (at least not as I remember). Secondly, the center of the icon should be round, not diamond shaped. I would appreciate if you fixed at least the latter.

Thanks! Taldar
