Update on Animation Contest

Thursday July 15th, 1999

I have a brief update regarding the animation contest. First the prizes have been awarded. Thanks to mozilla.org for the generous donations, and the work of Mitchell Baker.


  • Klaus Malorny of Germany - first place, $150 equiv. gift certificate to Amazon.de

  • Marc Stoecker and Phil Moliner of Germany - second place, $100 equiv. gift certificate to Amazon.de

  • Tomi Sarvela of Finland - third place, $55 equiv. gift certificate to Amazon.uk

We are working on getting the gallery up, and hope to have a means of adding the throbbers to your own Mozilla sometime soon. We also hope to get the new animation into the nightly builds before M9.

(Updated): Also, Richard Hess of the BeZilla team has created two animation.dat files for Unix users of Communicator. Here's a screenshot of it in place in the browser. One contains a 32x32 and a 28x28 image, and the other a 32x32 and a 16x16 image. Each has been tested on Irix systems, but should work on other Unix systems as well. They can be found in this directory at Richard's website.

Actually, I was able to set it up using 4.61 for Linux with no problem by putting animation.dat in my .netscape directory and adding--

config("x_animation_file", "/home/jessem/.netscape/animation.dat");

...to my preferences.js file. Worked fine.
