   Alexander, The list server rejected your message as being from a

1. Mnemonics suck (use user avatars instead and allow mouse hover to
see details)
2. The rainbow version is the best version by far, because it creates
the impression of a progress bar, but the rainbow colors seem to be
meaningless (put a money pattern in the background instead of colors)
3. What is the +1880 in "" ?

Whats the task about?
