After failing to reach Vince at home for technical support, here's my tiny scheme:

*** contender for tiny scheme statalist contest  ***

#include s1color

symbol p circle_hollow

***

Just create a file called "myscheme.scheme" (a text file) and drop it in your personal folder. You may need to restart Stata.

Then,

sysuse auto
scatter price weight

gives greater joy.
