    perhaps you meant this?

    Code:
    **************
    *****    *****
    ***        ***
    *            *
    ***        ***
    *****    *****
    **************
    Away.

    I've got a project going on right now. We're working on an anti-spam utility. If you're interested, PM me.

    I find that when I feel im "out of ideas" it just means I need to learn more and apply it, that always gives me something to do.
