Square • 12 December 2007 • The SnowBlog


This morning I have made a square. It only takes up four of your Earth kilobytes. And yet it's not without its interest.

Here's another one: skyshift.gif That one's all of 20K. It's a little rickety because I've used too many colours. But what if you used an image like this as a background and it took ten minutes to get dark and then stayed that way? That would be purty*, no? The sun would set on any pages you left for too long. You'd have to reload them to get the light back. (I'm sure I didn't invent this; I just haven't seen it elsewhere before.) (If you happen to be using a browser** that let's you right-click on a picture and choose 'View image', try it on these.) * or maybe cheesy **like Firefox


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
