I’ve often chuckled to myself when people have said in emails that the Minipops are too small. That’s the idea, dummy! But I now feel a bit bad about that. When I was looking at the Minipops page a couple of days ago after doing the Obama one, I realised that, as monitor display sizes get bigger, Minipops start to look even smaller on the screen. When I first started doing Minipops, my monitor was 1024×768; now it’s 1440×900. And I’m wondering if I should double the size of them, so that they’re easier to see. It’s an arduous task changing 980 HTML documents, but it may well be needed. Or will that destroy the magic… Ho hum, I dunno. What do you think?
Anyway, there’s ten new Minipops on the page today. Apart from two of them, I’ve kinda ignored your suggestions, but I do have them saved to refer to for the next batch. So, today there’s the two fellas off “Fantasy Island”; rapper Lil Wayne; Seasick Steve, who I keep thinking is called Seasick Dave; and the Fifth Dragon King of Bhutan, Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck. Plus a bunch of political figures: Iranian president and current holder of the handsomest world leader title, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad; Venezuelan human cannonball, Hugo Chávez; Brazilian president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva; Bolivian president Evo Morales; and the prime minister of Russia Vladimir Putin sporting the truly macho-er than macho topless-with-combat-trousers look; and Sean Penn lookalike Harvey Milk (can you guess which film I saw at the cinema last night?).
