 Here is my $.02.

I like the road sign idea.  Stop for red, triangle for yellow, circle for
green, square for purple, inverted triangle for blue, and rectangle for
white.  Not sure what to do for status which have changed in the last 24
hours, but please don't drop that feature, I use it all the time, to check
what happened which did NOT generate an alert.

I like the hobbeat, or heartbeat name or something like that.  I installed
hobbit last April in my shop and in the past year+ it has become the way to
check the heartbeat of the computer network.

Above all Hendrik, please let someone else take on the icon thing (I'm not
an artist) and be sure to get your health (especially those floaters)
addressed. You and your health are far more important than what we all see
on screens everyday.

I'd forgotten that - doh!  A + is probably the simplest other choice then
(or maybe a small OK).

Thinking about it though, as this is about catering for the colour blind,
it's probably worth also considering how to show acknowledged status codes.
Maybe by fading the basic symbol (octagon or triangle) and overlaying a
tick?  That would still allow a plain tick as a "green" code.

 Please keep list traffic on the list.
