What it is in a name



About those favicons. The first favicon to go up yesterday was a picture of Ludwig, because he translated well to the tiny format required. Then, I experimented with Arlo himself, and he translated better than I expected, so I went to an “Arlo” favicon. That is what you should be seeing to the left of this Web site’s address in the address bar at the top of your browser. It’s there. It works in most cases. If you’re not seeing it, the problem is within your browser. I’ll leave the technical ins and outs to you here in the forum. A lot of this ground was covered already yesterday.

Someone was asking the point of the favicon. It’s an Internet thing! It doesn’t have to have a point. It’s a shiny gadget to momentarily attract our attention. It seems to be working.
