It may not seem impressive, but getting that animation below 40k was a brute. Anyway, I'm probably never going to use the icon, since I like to avoid animated icons in general, however I
- learned how to get frame grabs from dvd
- learned how bad gifsicle's animated gif optimizer is
- learned new gimp techniques for hand optimizing gifs
So as much as I shouldn't have been doing it, at least I learned some new stuff.
