First if you are into glitzy christmas stuff you can download a small 10kb file from click here Christmas Lights at Humor Shack which strings flashing lights around the edge of your computer screen. It is number nine on the page.

Now if you run this cutzy little file and open your browser you get a wierd phenomenon. The lights stick to the browser window. Tried it with FF and Avant.

I Checked out the Humor Shack site and the Christmas Lights down load is clean!

But since the last time I'd noted a link wasn't working here, I hesitated to note it
this time, until someone else also mentioned it.

http://www.humorshack.com/download/index.shtml

Scroll to bottom of the page and you'll find the download.

Edit: Scarlett's got a faster trigger on her 'puter than me. Nuts.....

Y'all are too funny!
I am going to go and download it then. I think I've seen it before and might have used it before also. We'll see.
Thanks Koan!

P.S. Whatever you are willing to get rid of Scarlett, I'll be happy to take off your hands LOL (regarding holiday sig's).

Well that took all but 15 seconds at the very most. I've not seen it before but it's cute I suppose. It sits on your desktop also and 'hangs' around the top and sides only (or it only does that because I keep my taskbar on the bottom).
Cute.

Sorry don't now why the link did not work. :flowers: Yes did d/l and run AVG on it.

It is cutzy except that it gets irritating :thumbsup: very quickly. Oh yes the lights do look like carrots. The original site for this one was a kid's game with a rabbit chasing carrots all around the screen.

But the interesting thing is that there are left over images :trumpet: on the webpages viewed while it is running, both with FF and Avant. Refresh gets rid of them. Never run into this phenomenon before.

I love Christmas trees, Christmas candy, etc...Colorful stuff, I LOVE your tree!
Also, please remember that the lights blink but the screenshot doesn't show that.
