It pulses. It's just nearly transparent. :P

I started with Walter's original 2.01 D release. The font I'm
using is proportional, so I've not a problem there. Your version
was also in D1, was it not? I think something subtle may have
borked. I'm sure it's fixable if I sit down and fix it, but
seeing as it's forbidden to languishing on my hard-drive, I'm not
sure I give enough fucks to do that.

Up to Walter, obviously.
