Sugar Icon

During our control technology lessons, we have been learning how to hack Sugar. One of the things we learnt to do is to change the icon of the Sugar.

Here is a screenshot of my icon.
Changing the icon involves using the html-kit or notepad. You have to first draw it on graph paper and then plot the coordinates.

After finishing my icon, I had a lot of trouble replacing it onto the Sugar icon because I mispelt the word ' color ' and named it ' colour ' instead. The Sugar recognises the American words and thought the colour as an error.

This made me stress a lot because I could never get it working. After our teacher took it home and tried it himself, he worked out that I had mispelt the word color.
Here is a screenshot of my Sugar homepage with my icon and all the activities around it.
