Click around. I'm sure you'll find it. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Sep 7 '10 at 15:20
I would close as a duplicate of this, but it's closed and has pretty weak answers. This should be the new faq for this question – Michael Mrozek Sep 7 '10 at 15:35
@Michael Mrozek - I don't think that question is very useful; one answer says to use "Favorite Button" (kind of a circular definition?) and the other says "using start " instead of "star" – Richard JP Le Guen Sep 7 '10 at 16:02
@Richard I know, that's why I said it has pretty weak answers and this should be the new faq entry; that question is currently tagged faq despite not being very helpful – Michael Mrozek Sep 7 '10 at 16:08
@Michael Mrozek - Ok, total "reading your comment" fail on my part :) – Richard JP Le Guen Sep 7 '10 at 16:13

Should be freehand circles ;) – ChrisF Sep 7 '10 at 15:27
@ChrisF: Yeah, I was about to say... maybe Barry is new here? :) @Barry: See the Freehand circles entry on The Many Memes of Meta to see what we're going on about. – Bill the Lizard Sep 7 '10 at 15:29
@ChrisF, @Bill the Lizard : Didn't know about the freehand circles. Updated my pictures - just because thats how I roll :-) – codingbadger Sep 7 '10 at 15:45
@Barry - don't worry, you updated the screenshot with a more appropriate annotation. – ChrisF Sep 7 '10 at 15:54
@Barry: Masterfully done! :) – Bill the Lizard Sep 7 '10 at 15:54
When I visit, I don't have a link at the top that says "Barry." What is wrong with my computer?! – James McNellis Sep 7 '10 at 17:45
@James McNellis - Just to clarify - i have updated my answer. No more now. No more. :-) – codingbadger Sep 7 '10 at 17:56
Must you be located in London to participate in Stack Overflow? This seems somewhat restrictive. – Peter Ajtai Sep 7 '10 at 18:12
Don't make me do it - don't make me put another picture on.... – codingbadger Sep 7 '10 at 18:25
I'm not going to be 27 for a few years; I guess I'll have to wait before I can star posts :( – Michael Mrozek Sep 7 '10 at 19:22
@Michael: I'm long past the age of starring posts. :( – Bill the Lizard Sep 7 '10 at 21:01
