Hi All. This was popular in a comment thread, and it was suggested that I post it. I made this what seems like forever ago, to make pretty pictures that I could show in my motd. I have many servers for side projects, so this is very helpful visually reminding me which box I just shelled into.
One of the things I like most about this, is how its a fully static page that lets you pass around URLs with encoded images. Nothing is server side, and since the pix are so lo-res its trivial to stick them in a querystring.
