Space Invader Tattoo



This might have already made the rounds, but it's still a great tattoo. From Pythagore Anonymous' photostream.

Looks faked. Is that the point?

Does it? Looks real to me.

Emailed you a blown up version, with no smoothing in the scaling. Note how perfectly in line with the pixels the space invader himself is.

Will have to wait until this weekend to be able to see it :( I'm fwding everything to my work account, but attachments get stripped.

oh wow, that came through actually. I guess our Exchange doesn't know what a PNG is....

Hrm .. it does look odd - but remember this is via blogger so the dithering might just be their own compression. The right angles are impressively straight though, it's true.

Can you point me to where you got the code to do the comment snippets in the left hand column? Nice stuff.

It's homegrown, based on a trick I found somewhere about dupin' out the MainPage tag in Blogger just for comments. Then I created some javascript to adjust it how I needed.

Can't add it to a comment here, I'll post it in a sec.

aw heck, Blogger hates SCRIPT tags in posts and I don't have the time to & everything. Emailed it to you.
