    I dare you....

    nice find, that is so true though. Now that I think of it, I haven't seen blinking text in quite some time. You almost have to wonder why they haven't got rid of it....;)

    IE doesn't support it. I have used it recently though: http://impactstudios.co.uk/musicians-add.php

    I'm not sure whether <blink> works in Safari, i can't stand safari at the moment.

    Doesn't work on safari - the "ERROR" wasn't blinking.

    that's good to know and probably the reason I haven't seen any blinking text ;)

    I can't stand safari any more! It does have some great features, but there are a few things that bug me beyond belief:

    URL Autocomplete is completely illogical and generally just crap
    JavaScript support is shoddy
    Rendering is still a little temporamental
    CSS Support needs to be improved
    Tabbed Browsing is pretty crummy too, like the fact there's no "single window" mode - urls from other applications still open in new windows and not tabs!

    I might be being picky here, and yes, saf does have some pretty cool features + lightening fast BUT my webbrowser is the app i use the most the thinsg stated above are enough to drive me crazy.

    I'm sticking with Firebird (formally phoenix) for the time being. Its way more customisable and reliable (safari seems to "unexpectedly quit" so much that its not unexpected anymore).

    Thank you for bringing a smile to my face. Blinking as an attention getter, but still annoying!

    Thanks for pointing this out :).

    As bad as blinking text was, I still prefer it to a site full of blinking banner ads. Make no mistake, sites are still 'blinking,' only the code has become a little more complicated.

    Catch the monkey, anyone?

    According to http://www.zengifts.com/bento_box.asp

    "In Japan, lunches and dinners are beautifully packaged in bento boxes and contains a complete nutritious meal of rice, meat, vegetables and pickles all neatly packaged in the compartments of the bento box."

    There are also less ornate types that are sold as take-out lunches -- very popular, I understand.

    The bento box is used to serve Japanese food.
    You described something as "temporamental" -- a combination of the words "tempora" and "mental".
    Tempora is a kind of Japanese food.
    I suggested that you might have a bento box (possibly containing "tempora" for lunch) on the mind ("mental").

    That was it. Sorry if you were looking for something wittier -- I'm no Oscar Wilde.
