Since I have so many, I felt that it would be a nice side project to play with. So for the next week or two I shall be posting about one-two websites a day (or at least try to) and give a short review and examples of what they can do.
Today I’m going to just post something small and simple… I’m sure you’ve noticed around the web the infamous famfamfam.com “silk” icons used in blogs, applications, and pretty much anything else that they can be “stuck on.” So lately I’ve been looking for a replacement to kind of get away from them and try out something new. My problem is that I don’t like creating my own icons, so I had to find them elsewhere.
