In early 2008 I placed a found Macintosh "spinning beach ball of death" gif on my homepage but spent a couple minutes squashing the ball using HTML coding techniques, transforming it miraculously into some type of light shield. Pure pulsating color. A homepage splash protectant against evil visitation.?! Not quite sure what to believe but I must believe in something (besides beach balls and death). The shield stood proudly on my homepage for more than 3 years, but was laid to rest here on July 3rd, 2011.
