Today's logo (on the left) was done last year by broncolanche and since I never got around to using it, and since he would probably keep asking me about it unless I DID get around to using it, I decided to use it today.

Did you know our logo changes daily? If you're not seeing a fresh logo every 24, you might need to refresh, or shift-refresh, or some-other-key-refresh!

On the right is the alternate W that took me about two minutes...and it shows!

Not to sound like the total geek that I am, but expiration headers are you friend. This logo also has a "Last-Modified: Sun, 09 Jan 2005 09:48:05 GMT" header, which is probably confusing some browsers checking for updates. You can see the headers with Delorie header viewer.

And you're using GIF rather than PNG? Okay, done being a geek now.

For logos, yep. As soon as Microsoft gets on the PNG transparency thing I'll fix it (probably never in both cases, alas).

I don't mind seeing all that grey on the referrals page, but on the index it's too much.

8-bit PNG with transparency (255 colors + 1 for transparency) works fine in IE, it's just the full color PNG with multiple levels of transparency that it has problems with. Since GIF is limited to 8-bit color anyway, PNG is a fine substitute. The only thing GIF has that PNG doesn't is animation support, although there's MNG which nothing really supports easily.

I converted today's logo to PNG (8-bit pallete with transparency) using pngout (it can do gif -> png). Input size: 785 bytes, Output size: 687 bytes for a savings of 98 bytes! You could buy a candy bar with those yearly bandwidth savings.

Here it is:

We save even more if I use the copy on your server :)



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
