I need some extremely small .gifs (transparent background preferably)

I'm no graphics artist, so I was hoping to find some suitable graphics somewhere on the web.
The problem is the smallest I can find is about 16x16 (favicons), but I need smaller gif, maybe around 8x8. Simply resizing favicons in GIMP destroys all but the simplest icons.

Does any know of a good website that has a collection of micro icons?

You're not going to get a lot of detail in 64 pixels, so don't expect much more than 2 color icons.

http://www.iconfinder.com/ lets you search down to 12 x 12. Googling for "mini icons" might turn up something.

I only need one color, basic shapes maybe, a circle and an square, an X and a triangle, and at the most complex maybe something that resembles the shape of a medical cross.

I've Googled every term I can think of, seems that the general consensus is that a favoicon is the smallest gif.

findicons.com allows you to search down to 8x8.

At that size, and only one colour, it doesn't take much artistic ability to create your own.

You're right; I could probably do it myself, but I rather see if it has already been done rather than 'reinvent the wheel'.
I'm as lazy as I can be.

Slightly-OffTopic:(IMO the smart lazy ass person is going to find or invent a better/quicker way to accomplish a task than a person who is extremely hard working.)
