German efficiency

The Germans think of everything. They even have a DIN standardized warning sign to remind people to read the fine manual:

And, it's almost legible when shrunk to match the phpBB smilies: :shock: Image. But not quite; natch. :mrgreen:

I must admit that I never saw (or noticed) this symbol. Perhaps I'm not a good German... :roll:

I do have an Oolite-related purpose here: I suggest a nifty, little OXP project for anyone wanting a nifty, little OXP project would be a HUD component that used shipWillLaunchFromStation to display this:-

- on the HUD then shipLaunchedFromStation to remove it again, while displaying the console message, "Remember to fasten your seatbelt."

Unfortunately there was a fairly good reason for that - they couldn't afford to shake the stage so they had to shake the camera while the actors faked being affected by g-forces, and that's actually quite difficult if you're strapped to a seat.
