What we need next is a .zip of the icons (guess 24*24 or 32*32 pixel would be
fine) and a list of the terms they represent - this would most likely be the
tooltip appearing when mouse is hoovered. Can you pick them?

We will see in the results. (Not for databases, but for 'save'). And actually
there used to be a time where data storage was done in big shiny metal
containers, just as you can still see them on the icon... ;)

I have added you to the team, so you can now change things in the project. I
have also started to create the icontest study - it is called '1207 Icontest'.
The icons are still missing (either you send me the icons and terms - or you
simply add them yourself). The study is a first suggestion and of course is
subject to discussion. I have added a simple demographic questionnaire, so we
can see what kind of users we reach. Discussion welcome!
