I didn't plan on making any anouncements like this about the site but I needed a spot to store the favicon and what could be better as my.opera? Here in the Netherlands it's not as slow as most free hosts. Flickr only uses 1% of my bandwith, thats just not cool!
Now it's also part of an interesting concept I've been playing with. The conclusion is that a website should be about the things it is made of or at least describe it's own structure some place. I am hosting a file here, the my.opera service is more as capible of doing that, now I'm adding a blog post about the file that isn't even half-un-interesting by understatement. This would be more appropriate for application downloads but there is no law against me blogging about my favicon? There is a lot to say about vavicons in general and the restaurant site needs to be observed both for their great service and for my even greater webdesign. hihihi
Because I have no acces to the root folder of the site for logical blogspot reasons I need to implement the image from the html. Normally the browser would go look for vacicon.ico in the root (withouth the user asking for it) then apply that to the bookmarks, adress bar and the sites tabs. The HTML alternative looks like this.
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="http://files.myopera.com/gabydewilde/blog/weegschaal.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
and goes some spot under the doc title in the <head> of the document.
