This is great design, but I hate to see people disregarding standards in this day and age.

Everyone knows that's the hamster dance song slowed down, right? Does that mean this site is that old?

Ok, and the hamster dance song is a sped up version of a song from Disney's Robin Hood. I did not know that.

dammit Long December, I had written a post about the Ham(p)sterdance/Robin Hood thing, previewed, saw your first comment, reworked mine so that your comment was incorporated, previewed, and saw that you beat me on it again. I'm not previewing again as I've already wasted 10 minutes on a post that says very little other than that I'm slow at showcasing what little useless trivia I know about this #%^$ site.

I recognized that Robin Hood clip right away as an old song by the late great Roger Miller called Whistle Stop. From one of his least-regarded albums, which I now apparently have owned (dang me!) for 35 years.

I did not realize that Mr. Miller had ever been a) a cartoon rooster or b) an Internet-famous ham(p)ster, but the Wiki confirms that this is true.

Maybe this is a little early, but perhaps we're seeing the emergence of a new, "Dog on a Pony" genre of web art. I enjoy these, particularly as antidote to the millions of blase parked domains and "search engines".

Also, I'm now officially pissed off (again) that my first ever post to Metafilter was deleted. And also kinda proud. I keed, I keed. No snarks, please.

These pages are going to make me sterile, but whatever. It's worth it for that clock cursor. (ah the sacrifices we make for the interweb...). I've inserted the Script into a page but still can't get the clock to work.

I've positioned it at the bottom of the code just before the final and .

Am I missing a part?

var msy = (!ieType)?window.pageYOffset:0;

mouseY = e.pageY + ofst - msy;
mouseX = e.pageX + ofst;
}

mouseY = e.clientY + ofst - msy;
mouseX = e.clientX + ofst;
}
if (!vis) kill();
}
document.onmousemove=mouse;

function winDims(){
winH=(ieType)?ieRef.clientHeight:window.innerHeight;
winW=(ieType)?ieRef.clientWidth:window.innerWidth;
}
winDims();
window.onresize=new Function("winDims()");

function ClockAndAssign(){
time = new Date();
secs = time.getSeconds();
sec = Math.PI * (secs-15) / 30;
mins = time.getMinutes();
min = Math.PI * (mins-15) / 30;
hrs = time.getHours();
hr = Math.PI * (hrs-3) / 6 + Math.PI * parseInt(time.getMinutes()) / 360;

for (i=0; i <>= winH-80) dy[i-1]=winH-80;
if (dx[i-1] >= winW-buffW) dx[i-1]=winW-buffW;
}

tmr=setTimeout('Delay()',ref);
ClockAndAssign();

window.onload=Delay;

Oh god, when I asked how they did the clock cursor I was kidding. That code is an abomination of pre-2000 web design. Why do I want a clock at my cursor? Why do I want it animated? Why do I want it swirling around when I move? Why do I want the time on the web page at all?

Please unlearn that code. Using it kills kittens.
