I recently received a very nice Email - a visitor of these pages ‘reminded’ me kindly that some of my about 5 years old desktop-wallpaper-pictures were not available in any contemporary screen-resolution.. Back then I just rendered them in these following three different sizes: 1152×768, 1024×768 und 800×600..!!
Anyways - I finally added some pixels here and there and ‘re-rendered’ the three Finland-wallpaper-pictures in ten up-to-date sizes:
PowerBook / MacBook Pro:
1440×900, 1280×854, 1152×768
Monitor / Screen (4×3):
1600×1200, 1280×960, 1280×1024, 1024×768
Studio Display (16×9):
1680×1050, 1280×800, 1024×640
And here’s the direct links to the three sets:
1) Finland Helsinki Kontula Summer
2) Finland Helsinki Vallila Summer
3) Finland Helsinki Vallila Winter
..well - greetings, Till..

Well - that’s how it goes sometimes: I just went through all the five phases of the “Million Dollar Homepage -Fever”.. .:!:. ..and decided to write at least a short article about the Million Dollar Homepage.
What happend.?! Well - here’s a short short version of what happened: a young man from Great Britan simply wanted to avoid taking study loans. So he came up with the idea to simply sell a million pixels of advertisement space - for one Dollar each. Greatness!
Now for the five phases: when I first saw that Homepage some time ago, I though (like probably 1 Million other people) something like: “Well. Wow. Hm. Aha.” - and then I tried to forget what I had just seen.
But meanwhile, things have happened: Alex has just sold 999000 Pixels, the last 1000 Pixels are on an auction on Ebay. It’s not too late yet: the auction is still on until 11th of January. But if you’d like to own a piece of internet history, you’ll at least have to bid a little bit more than $150000,-..
Is it now all over anyways?! Perhaps. Or maybe not. Maybe Bill Clinton’s quote from the Brandenburg Gate (Berlin) is just still valid and “Everything is possible”. Maybe.
I took the chance, looked at various other so called Pixel Pages, found a Pixel Page, where you can actually reserve some pixels for free, claimed a 10×50 pixel piece of that page, uploaded a 10×50 pixel TV-Tower and linked it to my Berlin pictures..
..we’ll see what’ll happen..:]
