# OK
There's a Jessie icon set up. This money goes to Cal for server bills - as this is how the system is set up - I can't subvert it as the cash doesn't go via me.

However if someone trustworthy wants to get in touch and collect money for either a charitable donation or flowers I can stick this on the front page with a message etc.

cr3 edit: donations here get the new icon and the funds will go to Mrs. Trellis who will organise a memorial fund:   >> www.b3ta.com/donate/jessie/ <<

# Good man Rob
having bought the new raccoon, perhaps it needs to be pixel different to the tweaknik original

*Edit - you could use this one if you wanted
More black fur above nose, fluffier ears, repositioned

[challenge entry] Just been mucking about with this



Not fully happy but I hope it conveys the general idea

(obviously borrowing tweaknik's original btw)

If tribs and cr3 can work with JPG to get a donations for flowers for the funeral, that'd be great. Especially if we can get enough for a raccoon shaped setup. I think the prof would like that.

Please leave this open for a little bit.

To be honest I'd also like to send some money to Nikon Fella's family but I can't help but think that an anonymous bunch of flowers from an internet weirdo at this late stage might just open up old wounds.

A newbie screwed up on the board the other day (as newbies do), and got ripped a new one (as newbies do).

Someone asked what had happened to b3ta, and where all the fluffiness had gone.

It's right here.

I'd just about given up on b3ta a while back for this reason. It's good to see that some of the original fluffier b3tans are still there hiding in the woodwork.
