Much ado about monkeys

I’m not sure what started me on this monkey kick. It may have been the ever-humbling statistical anomaly of the monkeys and the typewriter. It may have been the “infinite number of monkeys” in my Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy flashbacks. Hell, it could even have been some thoughts triggered by the uncanny resemblance of George W. Bush to our simian cousins (taken from BushOrChimp.com, which seems to be down at the moment).

Whatever the case, I had a sleepness night on Sunday, and decided to create a “favicon” for the site (the little icon that shows up in the address bar and in bookmarks). I used to design little icons back in the old days, but it was quite a frustrating experience to try to work with only a 16×16 grid now that I’m used to hi-res everything, even on the Palm. It took a few attempts, but I finally came up with something I’m happy with.

It’s been uploaded for the site, and should be appearing in your address bar. Hope you like it.
