okay, it's official... I have too much time on my hands

Post by ejm »

I am a big fan of the The Really Big Button
on pixelscapes.com' Really Big Button page, Stefan Gagne wrote:[...] the most unusual artifact to be discovered on the Superhighway de la Informatique: the really big button that doesn't do anything. Developed in early '94, labelled as the Mystery Spot of the Internet, thousands flock to this button every day, pushing it, attempting to get it to do something; all in vain.
But I'm not a big fan of the actual button. It's just not really big, don't you think? So, I made a bigger button:

It doesn't do anything either. Well, almost nothing....
So... have YOU backed up your files lately? And defragged too!?

Ooh, I like the almost nothing that it does. But shouldn't yours be even bigger? You've left room for someone else to make an even bigger one.

When I clicked the one that's posted on your Facebook page, it switched to a different picture and I thought "that's not almost nothing".

The drawing of the person leaning into the wind.

I think I get it. When you click on the button in Facebook, it's just the thumbnail thing and it takes you to your photos. Clicking on each picture seems to advance to the next one. And since there's only two, they go back and forth.

Rrrrr... now I DO hate facebook. I had no idea that would happen!

Thanks for telling me. I've fixed it now (I think) by moving the windy day drawing into a separate folder.

Thank you. I was rather proud of myself, even though it meant that the button doesn't actually do nothing at all any more.

That seems completely okay. Especially as I was smart enough to not claim that my button was the biggest button. And as long as they make their OWN "do nothing" button that's even bigger. I would hate it if they just downloaded my button and enlarged it. That would be a big wrong.
