Favicon generator

For those of you that were interested in getting your own icon to go to the left of your URL in the location bar of a browser (also known as a favicon, standing for "favorites icon"), here's the skinny:

The best place I've found to generate your own Favicon is a free online Favicon-from-image generator provided by the creators of HTML-Kit.

If you wander through the gallery of previously created favicons, you'll likely stumble across (on page 20) the BigBlueHat icon I created there a few years back.

Give it a try and see how your's turns out.

Google Talk - they're at it again

Google Talk looks like it will be a nice addition to the ever growing Google "life" system. Google Talk is IM that connects to your GMail (uses the same contacts system), supports and open standard (XMPP), and allows to send calls through your PC (similar to Skype et al).

Haven't tried it yet, but I likely will soon.

There's also an add-on for my much beloved Trillian (Pro of course).
