Besides, there's already an indicator of 'work offline' (a disconnected

I dispute the obvious part. It is *obvious* to those that know what to
look for, *not* to the casual user. And, before you raise the issue, I
am *NOT* a casual user.

But it is not, by a long shot, obvious "once one thinks to look". Apart
from the prejudice (from the latin, pre judice, "to judge in advance
[before knowing the facts]"), your statement is overly aggressive,
implying the original poster does (or did) not think, or want(ed) to.

Please be more courteous. Everybody will enjoy more your knowledge this
way. Also, please keep in mind those that know more are here to direct,
instruct, and pass knowledge, to those that know less. In a nice way.

And I think the original poster does have a point.


My apologies, I did not mean to imply any of the above. Email isn't all
that great a medium of discussion, especially with cursory statements
such as mine above.

What I meant by 'obvious' is that, once you have been directed to look
at the icon, there is an obvious connection between its normal
plugged-in state and its un-plugged state. The OP suggested that a
similar functionality, already served by this icon, be added to the
send/receive button. While in itself not a bad idea, I merely meant to
point out that such an icon already exists.

Again, however, my apologies for any aggressiveness, I did not believe
or wish to imply any lack on the OP's part.
