Trivially annoyed with the 404 “/favicon.ico not found” errors I get in http logs, I went and created a trivial favicon.ico file. This was about two minutes with MS Paint and cropping/saving with IrfanView. Now, on a par with Yahoo!, my website has a logo, all without the committee meetings Yahoo! must have had to get to the same point.

    Your faviocon doesn’t show in Mozilla. That’s because it is being sent as MIME type text/plain. It should be type image/ico

    You can set that in .htaccess with

    ForceType image/ico

    Thanks for the great comments on b2links by the way. I’m going to take a look at your RSS aggregator.
