graceness turned me on to Homestar Runner the other day, and I cannot thank her enough.

As you may or may not know, when you enter the site's main page one of seventeen different page designs randomly loads. One of them (number thirteen) has the look and feel of an Atari 2600 game. Hovering the pointer over different menu items causes different animated scenes to play.

Pointing to the e-mailoption causes a 2600-ized rendition of site villain Strong Bad to run across the screen, carrying the Holy Grail from the game Adventure while pursued by one of the dragons from the game. "SOMEBODY GET THIS FREAKIN' DUCK AWAY FROM ME!" he screams.

This one small bit makes me happier than just about anything has in months.
