365 days of SL, day 82:


(Click for larger — 1920x1033 PNG, 1936 KiB)

Yesterday was another day that consisted of nothing but chillaxin' in the pool, talking and... well, actually, that was all. :) I wasn't sure what sort of screenshot to take for quite a while; I didn't want to essentially duplicate yesterday's, and I'd neglected to go anywhere or do anything before the gang arrived.

So in the end, I settled for a picture of part of the FP estate — a pawprint-shaped group of little islands I'd seen on the map recently. It's nothing spectacular, but hey.

At least I did get a new LJ icon, though, which you can see above/to the left. :) The background's looking pretty dark, alas; I hadn't intended to crop it as tightly as I did, but the larger version I initially went for lost too much detail when scaled down to 100x100:

That one's still pretty tightly cropped to the left and right, of course, and has too much space at the top and bottom, but such is life when you're trying to go for something square. I really wish LJ'd allow SLIGHTLY larger icons, at least; 100x100 is a relic from the days where you'd browse the web on an 800x600 screen. Nowadays that 1920x1080 is common enough, I think it could and should be expanded.

Ah well; at least the 100x100 crop fit my head nicely. :)

Most welcome, although they don't call me a stud for nothing.

No wait... uh.. >.> <.< I meant sweetie. Yeah. sweetie :P

Maybe LJ could go iOS style, using whichever version of the icon was appropriate for the resolution in question, or simply by preference. On the iPad rev.1 (as now), 100x100 is fine, but on a rev.3, higher res would be nice.

Seeing all that water reminds me of the sittable tentacles I just received from a most civil gentlefox, via SLU. I've left one in Rabit's pool. =:)

That would be cool. :) But I honestly don't know if I'd expect the LJ engineers to be able to implement that — not just the code (which, one hopes, should be doable) but also the necessary infrastructure. I don't know how many icons there are on LJ and how much space and bandwidth serving them takes, but I imagine it may be non-trivial.

Of course, there's also the question of whether it's desirable when faced with legacy icons that are (at most) 100x100. Do you serve these as they are? Then you'll have small and large icons next to each other; this might break layouts (well, to an extent, given that layouts already must deal with icons smaller than 100x100, too) and irritate people. The alternative of scaling these up, OTOH, is sure to irritate people as well.

I think it's an avenue worth pursuing, but I think merely allowing the upload of larger icons and preparing the code (styles etc.) for that would be a good and sufficient first step. Do that, and let the dust settle, and then we'll see where we'll go from there once the majority of icons actually ARE larger. :)

Oh, sittable tentacles? That sounds at least somewhat kinky. ^^

Nice little pond.

There's a kind of opposite version of it near my home in Jaguar Valley, instead of the islands making the pawprint, it's the water that's pawprint shaped.

Heh, cool. :) I'll have to take a shot of that sometime soon — maybe even today so it'll stand in contrast to this shot. :)
