^ Maybe the "down and out" smiley was a little extreme although I see your point.  I do need to go to bed earlier and the reminder helped last night in that I wasn't on the forum until 3 AM.   Cheesy

Yep, they're a new feature. They are based on local time (provided you have adjusted it in the time zone section in your profile). I think they're cute too!

Yeah, the funniest was when I had just got up and was being asked if I shouldn't be in bed soon. It was tempting to take the hint and go back for an hour or two.  Grin

I can edit them out of quotes, true, but that wouldn't be necessary if you weren't inflicting them upon us in the first place.
