I'll see if I can ship you some Blubuntu stuff to make :) Thanks for the offer

Thought, it occurs to me you should probably sleep first :P

Just to confirm - we get an animation basically just for fun, a
progressbar to show how far along loading is and a background
image..anything else?

Do we need to have certain colours from the palette in the 'right
place' - like we used to have to have the fail text colour, etc? Do we
need to worry about black borders for some cards too? (I.E is is still
best to stick to a black background)

Can anyone think of a nice animation for Blubuntu?- making a water
droplet that grows would rock but time most certainly does not permit
that at the moment!!
