Q: "How do I show images (red/green lights, Skype buttons, etc) on records?"

Three more random factoids:
  1. That funny-looking orange circle is called a "Harvey Ball", and it's what Consumer Reports uses to rank stuff. I came across this font implementation of Harvey Balls a few years ago, and realized that the guy who created the font was a high school classmate of mine. Weird coincidence.
  2. Today is my sixth anniversary as an employee of salesforce.com. Happy anniversary me!
  3. And happy Pi Day!
