Cool icons

Hi folks,
I vaguely remember, many moons ago, some
thread about buying icons but cannot remember
the company name. I am wondering if anyone
could point me in the right direction.  Perhaps
also some indication of their experience with the
product.
Many thanks

I don't know what company you are referring to, but I have my own recommendation.

Yahir Vite has done several icons for me, and I have been more than satisfied.  He specializes in XP styled icons, so your graphics will generally have a consistent look with 2k and XP.

He is very reasonably priced (especially relative to artists in the US who may charge $50-$100 per custom icon) and will negotitiate on most projects.

You can see examples of his work here :

You may be thinking of "glyfx", mentioned in this very recent (today) topic "Icon design reccomendations?"
http://discuss.fogcreek.com/joelonsoftware/default.asp?cmd=show&ixPost=153393 - this company was also mentioned a longt ime ago in this forum, which may be what you were thinking of.
