Today we received an email from the Marketing Department of the Corporation Overlord Corporation touting their latest press release to the public.
They linked to the press release at the various GoogleMyFacePlusTwitterSpaceBook sites using some outrageous graphics.
The one for Facebook was pretty scary looking,
being based on this:
I'm not sure why the Marketing Departmemt of the Corporation Overlord Corporation felt the standard linking images for FaceTwitterGoogleMyPlusSpaceBook weren't good enough and needed to “kick it up a notch,”
but there you go.

(or maybe even a counter-counter point,

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are

so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
