The site that launched a thousand pics

All this column's previous talk about pictures being worth a thousand words and, courtesy of a reader, up comes Liverpool practice shedkm.

This is the exception which proves another principle: 'A thousand pictures need a couple of words.' Just hit and you'll see what I mean. OK, before you do that you have to watch that nasty little worm wriggle for ages along its route before you are allowed to see the images. Any considerate site would provide music to ease the boredom, or more accurately to diminish the rising red mist. Anyway the end result is a grid of thumbnails which you soon discover is a sliding shifting grid which you are watching through a square letterbox. You immediately go crazy trying to work out the relationship between your mouse and the way the grid moves. And clicking on an image is like sticking the tail on the donkey blindfold. And... Anyway take a look and please, never, never, try to copy.
