Net Fun: Homer and Bush in CSS

May 5th, 2008 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Román Cortés has produced two CSS ASCII images of Homer Simpson and a certain George W. Bush Jr. The snag, well for the George Bush image there’s 31.82kB of source code, but the Homer one is a bit more compact at 16kB.

Roman first created these images by hand, but he’s now written a Windows program which converts JPEG images to CSS “images”.

Allegedly, there’s an animated Homer CSS page as well, but that server’s been Slashdotted for now…

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
