I want to believe. SVG as an image format.Happy Holiday season to y'all! This is our first Christmas in California and it's a bit of an adjustment. A wet Christmas is not a white Christmas - but at least there's no snow shoveling for me this year.

I hope you all have a successful new year in twenty-eleven. Build more! Code more! Write more! Do more! Those are certainly my goals! 🙂

By the way, I found that Christmas Tree image by Nicu on Open Clip Art Library using Google Image Search, opened it in SVG-edit, moved the star to the top of the tree and changed its color to yellow, scoured it and then saved it to my web server. Took about 10 minutes in total!

Speaking of Christmas trees, it's probably high time for me to update my own red and green online decoration. Soon!

Oh, and as I write more posts on my blog, you should be able to see Google indexing the SVG images from my site here. Note that these are not raster fallbacks. Hope that means something to you. 🙂
