Dividing up Helsinki

Markosamuli is tagging up the shapes of the neighborhoods of Helsinki on Google Maps. Where one area ends and another begins is an eternal topic of debate. Maps are rarely consulted in these debates, though, so maybe this is a first step in achieving a “groupthunk” or crowdsourced conclusion.

Making favicons

While I’ve tried many different ways of making favicons, I prefer — and would recommend — creating PNGs and then converting them using png2ico. I’m still on the fence whether bundling a 32x32 pixel version pays off. On one hand, it’s “invisible” and available in cases where it’d make sense; on the other hand, it’s just extra bits to send down the wire.
