Javascript hack Jan09

Javascript hack

Mike at work sent us all an email with this Javascript hack. It doesn’t do anything dangerous – just makes the images dance around in a circle. It didn’t work on Firefox for me – just IE. Step 1: Visit any website (with images) Step 2: Erase the website URL from the...

CSS Dropdown menus Aug15

CSS Dropdown menus
