favicon

I made a new favicon for my blog. Depending on your browser, you might see it in the address bar. I realized it turned out rather small, so here it is:



(I think it reflects the spirit of I Always Win. Some people might think it's excessively negative. I'm just trying to make people laugh. That is, after all, one of the reasons I started this blog.)




From what I've read, in order for the image to be supported in IE, I'd have to convert the .gif to a .ico file--not exactly easy, since none of my computer's three imaging programs can do that. But I am quite proud of myself for figuring out how to make it and stick it in the html of my template.

I'm going to try and come up with something that will display a bit better in the confines of the address bar.

what is a Pablo?

Pablo said...

Pablos are very rare and valuable. If one is found, you should cherish it forever.

I thought I clicked on Slashdot by mistake.

Miss Thistle said...

Jeez, I thought I was all down with the 'net lingo and here I am, learnin' something!

Steven said...

So, does that mean "No" Madame Rouge smiles?

I thought "pablo", translated loosely was "One who drives aggressively and does not no the difference between kph & mph".

(I'm pretty sure I saw it on the internet, so it must be true.)

Pablo said...

You must have read that on Engrish.com or something. So not true.

Favicon? Are your sure you didn't mean malecon?

madamerouge said...

Yes. Precious, precious Pablos.

Salem: I'm a nerd! Yay! (Except a real nerd would be able to make the favicon visible in IE7, not just Firefox and Safari.)

Thistle: more and more companies are using favicons

YJA: no way am I clicking on that link from work

Steven: it means--as Timmy listed me on his link list--that I never win. But I've embraced that, and realize that it doesn't mean forever. In the meantime, I hope to cause some chuckles.
