New Splash Page Graphic Added: “Come in. Don’t steal anything.”
|| 7/12/2009 || 3:42 pm || + Render A Comment || ||

The other night my housemate had some friends over and left this note in the front of our house. I thought it was cute, so I snapped a photo. Since the splash page of my website is somewhat like a front door, I felt it would make a nice addition to the current images that are randomly displayed each time you visit. I don’t have the exact number of visual combinations at the moment because the folder that contains most of the maps stops counting at 2,000 images, but I think the number is around 2,500 images.

As for the context of the note, I find it extremely interesting how people use the content I have placed on my website. I have a Fair Use link at the bottom of the page, but most people don’t really follow my request for proper citation. I wouldn’t call it outright theft, which would be claiming what I have created here as their own original artwork, but most of the time people will just use an image without the link back or a note about me. Oh well, there is not much I can do except e-mail them the proper link to use.


Note: The splash page graphic was randomly placed over University of Southern California Quilt



A dual purpose QR-Code added to the splash page

QR-Code superimposed over a zoom in of Good Hope Quilt #3

To this day, one of my favorite parts of this website is my splash page. By using the random image generator, there are well over thousands of different visual combinations that you might see when visiting this website’s splash page. Today I decided to add what consider to be a “meta” or dual purpose QR-Code to the splash page. The dual purpose aspect is that its both the HTML link and decoded QR-Code mean the exact same thing: http://nikolasschilller.com/blog/ – So if someone doesn’t read this entry, and decides to decode the QR-Code on the splash page, they’ll be given the same link that they’d receive if they simply clicked on the QR-Code. I could have made the QR-Code link to some random photograph hidden on this website saying “You’ve won a million dollars!!” —but I didn’t (okay I still might make another). Instead if someone takes a screen grab of the splash page that shows the QR-Code and then reposts the image somewhere else, the embedded link back to my website will still exist in the QR-Code.

Hello Cherubs – A New Splash Page Graphic Added
|| 3/30/2008 || 1:37 pm || Comments Off on Hello Cherubs – A New Splash Page Graphic Added || ||

With the addition of this graphic, my website’s splash page now contains over 18,675 different visual combinations. I’ve been working on a new lost series project called “The Grand Juxtaposition,” which uses all the images of my website. It should be ready in a week or two. This new splash page graphic was created using the letter z from the Oktober 98 font collection. I colored in the image and removed the color on the book’s page to create a transparency illusion that the book has been opened to one page somewhere on my website. Just hit reload to cycle through the different visual combinations.

Above the cherubs are showing a zoom-in detail of Washington Circle Quilt
