More Downtime


This site will be unavailable for 48 to 72 hours while I move some stuff around (myself included). This means I'll finally a) get some fresh air b) take a gazillion photos of the countryside c) sort out some power cabling issues and (with any luck) d) dust off the server :)

Find the matching tiles

I traced it first to dive into Mark, and then found a CSS version - written in PHP, and with source code.
