[hobbit] "Hobbit" name legal stuff; slight name change will happen

If you've ever been to a real NOC, you'll notice that they usually have a large set of displays that are set up around the room for viewing problems at a glance.  I can understand where they would be viewing from a distance.

Ideally, to aid color blind folks (I work with a guy that has Macular Degeneration and requires a special application that reverses his video) and those that are visually impaired, the icon set should have different shapes associated with them as well.  I'd have to go look but I think Steve Aiello's set on The Shire are this way.

I'm sorry...from a distance?

It's a computer screen, not a TV.

You can make your own custom smilies anyways.  Just overwrite the images.

I received some remarks from some of my collegaes.  4 of them have color
blindness and it's very dificult to see the differences between the smileys
from a distance.
