I have an image posted at http://www.kansas.net/~wayne/machine.gif

It is a 16x16 pixel image that I need converted into an icon and then posted somewhere where I can download it.

two basic colors are black and red.  background needs to be transparent.

50 free points!!! (basically)

Can anyone help?

I've downloaded some free trials of icon editors and I'm not pleased with them.

Thanks

!!! Don't unzip it. Just rename extension to ICO.

Geocities doesn't allow me to upload ICO files.

If you get an error, go to www.geocities.com/dbrckovi and select it from the list.

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

mikal613,

found your site page http://alleniverson3.20megsfree.com/Openpage.html

I can see it, just can't download it.  Perhaps you could rename it with a zip or text extension....just maybe.

I click the link and get this funky error

Remote Host: [207.250.27.35]

You do not have permission to access http://alleniverson3.20megsfree.com/machine.ico
Data files must be stored on the same site they are linked from.

Thank you for using default.partner

Can't get to any geocities web site either.
