Well, in order to know what Keen would be doing, you'd have to consider whether he was 8 in 1990 or 8 in 1992, or if he never ages.


(Personally I think of him like Dennis the Menace, who is always 5 years old and every birthday is his 6th. I think.)

Presumably you're talking about the American Dennis the Mennis, who was invented long after the British one, is about 5/6 years younger and isn't a menace so much as just a brat.

Actually, according to Wikipedia, both versions were made in 1951. And if you want to be really specific about it, the American one was created 3 days before the British one. :p

Neat! What is the second icon on the bottom row, a Shikadi Mine?

Pong? (or paddle wars as the case may be)
Ever heard of it? :p

For the record, I have no idea why one of the apps is the Norsefire flag from the V for Vendetta film. :P

I wonder if Keen's new iWrist suffers from the grip of death. :dead2

Do you think we would get in too much trouble if we actually did something like this for Commander Genius? Because this would be an awesome way to choose which game to play, as well as being a good way to have options and editors. Plus then people could include an icon for their mods! Maybe if we removed the really obviously ripped off stuff, like the home button and the status bar, then we could make them slightly larger (32x32) and include some text below each icon to show what mod it is!

Maybe base it off of Android? They're probably a bit more lenient on fair use and whatnot.
And plus, Billy is a nerd, he probably likes to tinker with open source. 8)

Haha I knew you would propose that! But yeah it would be neato, and I'd gladly make 32x32 mod icons if needed.

Isn't fanart well within the concept of fair use?
Otherwise, a significant piece of modern art could never have happened:

RoboBlue makes a good point. ;)

I think it's a cool idea! I'd also be happy to help with icons...also, it might make sense for the original modders to submit icons for their own mods if they're still around and want to do it. :)

That's not gonna work. I guess 95% of the mods don't have even a single screenshot. But the wristwatch is neat! :p
