Eep! What happened to AltaVista? Actually, it doesn't look all that bad... The dark header is a bit distracting though.

New at 79 - I started experimenting with Java-applets recently hoping to one day be able to create one of those cool "plasma" effects, when in fact I managed to create one today using plain ol' Javascript. Go figure...

Here's another fun javascript bookmarklet for IE-users: stretch imgs - drag the link to your linksbar, then click it when visiting a site with plenty of images.

Or try this slightly modified version: switch imgs - instead of stretching out images, this randomly swaps the source of an image with that of another one.

Hi! Steve Kargas (of sent me to your page. The stretch imgs bookmarklet is very funny, it would, however, be also very useful if there was a shortcut (like pressing Stop in the browser or Esc) to stop the images for stretching further.
