BOL Chicklet?

As much as I like the small chewing gum candy, I'm refering to the little graphics that let you plug something on your blog/site. So, first, is there an official one? Next, if not, can one be made or can some loyal listener work some graphical magic?

Sure, tell me what pixel size it should be and whether it needs a transparent background.

You may know my work from BOL Snakes on an Artwork 294.

Well I'm not sure on an exact size....anything near 80x30. Everybody knows what a chicklet looks just needs to be the same size and shape as all the chicklets around it. Also, I suggest as design specifications: it clearly indicate it is a podcast, possibly indicate CNET (though I don't know the copyright stuff associated with it), and give it a direct link to the page (that way new listeners can get the latest podcast imediately.

Is it possible to make a link that adds it to iTunes for you? Just curious. This could be a great way to spread BOL....I've found a number of good sites through chicklets.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
