Well, it isn't just IE that uses the favicon, as mozilla displays it also. Now, a favicon.ico is a 16pix x 16pix image in a certain format. If you assume 16 bits per pixel, thats 512 bytes. You could go up to 24 bits and still fit within a single packet. So read in 512 bytes from /dev/urandom instead, and spoof the .ico image format around it, and output that instead. Every user ends up with a different favicon in their browser window and you can claim 'well, it works for me, I don't know what /you/re talking about what do you /mean/ it looks like garbage?' Hm. Sounds like fun. Once my laptop is back from the shop (four motherboards and counting...), I might take a swing at it. rip _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
