The main problem isn't lopsidedness, but what happens with scrolling the window.

I think, instead, Jaysen should make the asterisk on a piece of fairly stiff transparent film. Cut the film so that the asterisk is at one end of a long narrow piece, and rest the other end on your laptop's trackpad.

Then, when you scroll the window make sure that your scrolling finger makes contact with the film and the trackpad. This should ensure that the asterisk and the cup in the window scroll together.

I do not get this reference. Does it have to do with mermaids? Or getting attacked on a ship? Or is it something about being stuck in an airport?

Who did that movie about baseball records? Can't find it on IMDB... and I don't care that much about baseball so I can't remember the number. I think it was 78* which is what is actually in the record block to suggest the record is skewed due to some alteration of facts (drugs or number of games played or some such).

I sure thought that was Hanks ... I'm too young to be this forgetful.

First things first. I think we must insist that Jaysen put an asterisk on his forum avatar to indicate some alteration of the user's headpiece, and, of course, that the user in question may be skewed due to drugs, hard dock impact or some such. The forum transforms most of vic-k's posts into simple strings of asterisks, so that one is already covered.

Dear Jaysen,

Oh my, what a pain in the asterisk t'would be for your avatar to go all dingbat on us now. Why, I wouldn't know who I was talking to from one moment to the next.

Dear Jaysen*,

Who are you and what have you done with Cap'n Jaysen?!

I was looking at my headlessness and said "that's an olllld photo, I don't look like that no more!". Let's say the current headlessness is more of a place holder.
