    I should make an avatar in Flash... which makes noise... and never stops animating based on math formulas I provide... and pops-up or gets larger when you mouse over it.

    You sure it actually was a JPEG and not just a GIF with a .jpg file extension?

    That's sort of because it's not.

    I think they're fine, unless they're giving me a seizure.

    Geocities is dead now, or I'd point you in their direction.

    Geocities was a free web host. The only cost of using their services was your soul, and advertising they'd force upon your viewers by use of frames. Because it was free, sites on geocities were setup by folks with a limited budget, and little design experience. As a result, they often used blinding color schemes and crappy graphics. You can't blame them, it was difficult to upload stuff 'cause you had to use geocitie's online interface and not ftp.

    Insignificant. Not worth pondering.
