My Java Cursor

I was reading this article on enabling animated pointers in Windows XP and thought to myself that it would be nice to have a Java-themed mouse cursor.

I took my Java category icon ( ) and rotated to make it look like a pointer ( ), then used IconArt to turn it into a cursor.

I was able to swap the regular Windows cursor by double-clicking on the Normal Select cursor, in the Mouse control panel, under the Pointers tab.

If I had any kind of graphic design skills, I would have gladly made a fully animated set/scheme. Now, that would be really cool.
