Re: [PLUG] OT: Want Kivio Networking Stencils

Just a thought from a Dia user,
I'm not sure this will work for you or if there is a way for Kivio to 
support images(I installed Kivio and looked but just figured maybe I'm 
missing something). When I wanted something aesthetic that I could hand 
out I looked my hardware up in Google Images. With a few minutes 
cropping in Gimp I had a small library that even represented the models 
of the hardware I was using. When printed in B&W the network diagram 
looked nice.
