OK, now that I got your attention, have you heard the old discussion about navel types? I mean "innies" or "outies"?

I'm still a bit new to Linux GUI operations so I need a little help.

Well, apply that kind of thinking to check boxes in Linux and tell me which one means "selected".

I'm trying to select the time synch option in VMWare Tools to make a VM synch with its host machine and I can't tell which state of the "checkbox" means it's on and which means not.

Am I clear here?

I guess I could refer to them as a square pimple or a square crater.
