The current implementation of the indicator that the paraguay builds
use has static 'computer' icon for the frame. The palette menu
displays the memory and cpu 'free' status by means of dynamically
updating text-labels and progress bars.
1. Would it be worthwhile to have the frame icon dynamically updated
as well, displaying icons such as the ones given below:
The idea is to make the students aware of the system-load in
response to their actions. Such an expressive means might be both
intuitive and easy to interpret.
2. Should the progress bars' 'filled' portion correspond to resources'
'in-use' or 'free' percentage. Currently, a 100% free CPU would mean a
full progress bar in the palette menu. This will probably need to
change since it is the opposite to how the journal space is
represented in its corresponding progress bar.
