    it has been discussed in this very thread... and the animation is there to stay, you can't get rid of it.

    strike that and reverse it :}

    haha, I was going to make my own or just use an animated gif, but then I saw that and I thought "what's the point"

    I'll be sure to post a video of my startup after I get it working :wink:

    Alright, it works, but it's a little fast.

    Still, it's not a verizon wireless logo!!

    you see only directories using Resco ? that is very odd... but reading the rest of the thread i see it is solved.

    Yeah it's weird but I didn't need to use it anyway after editing the registry to unlock it.

    Here is the video :)
