Default.png suggestion for developers
I really don't like how some applications are using the Default.png to show their screen while they are loading.
For example, Finder.app shows an empty screen for a while, then loads up.
I suggest everyone use a dimmed (darker) version of their screen with the word "Loading..." superimposed to make clear what is happening. (Though in some cases it is actually initializing, I guess.)
(Oh, I suggest Microstyle Bold Extended (like Microgramma Extended) for the word )
Then the screen brightens when the program is actually usable.

Same here old boy - as much as I like the i-App-A-Day apps, I always change the Default.png to a completely black one - I have done this for most apps.
