    Snowflakes on website

    Anyone notice the seasonal snowflakes falling down when you enter the forums? At first I thought 'How cute, Jim must have time on his hands...' then, I felt drawn to the idea that these flakes were advancing tetris-like down the screen...might they be interactive? Sometimes when you click on a few nothing happens, sometimes they disappear and sometimes you connect to website dynamicdrive.com. Truly! What gives?

    Snowflakes?

    I don't see any snowflakes.

    Maybe they're only visible in Canada.

    LOL I thought the same thing, Peter. But very festive, Jim. I am really looking forward to the falling hearts on Valentine's Day, skulls on Halloween and turkeys on Thanksgiving.

    I like the new smileys too...

    They can't be snowflakes, they are all the same!

    Quite possibly true. I'm seeing them now. On my monitor screen
    and outside my window (they're predicting half a metre by tomorrow).

    ..... Where, Oh, where did I last see my swimming suit? Oh well!

    I wish they would stop. :-) I don't like random things floating around my web browser windows. It's not much different than those flash advertisements that take over your screen and you can't get rid of.

    Second this idea. I like the real ones...not these. They are a bit annoying.

    I like them. A nice touch for the holidays. I just hope they're long gone by spring.

    They are a bit annoying, but I live in South Texas and with no ski trip planned for this year, they may be the only snow I get to see anytime soon.
