Un dolce canto cominciaro a sciorre:
“O molto illustre Ulisse, o degli Achei
Somma gloria immortal, su via, qua vieni,
Ferma la nave; e il nostro canto ascolta.
Nessun passò di qua su negro legno,
Che non udisse pria questa che noi
Dalle labbra mandiam, voce soave;
Voce, che innonda di diletto il core,
E di molto saver la mente abbella.
Ché non pur ciò, che sopportaro a Troia
Per celeste voler Teucri ed Argivi,
Noi conosciam, ma non avvien su tutta
La delle vite serbatrice terra
Nulla, che ignoto o scuro a noi rimanga”.
(Odissea, canto XII – Omero)

UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW

Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.

thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.

Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.
