Firstly, and most importantly, I think the problem experienced by Mac and/or Firefox users with the Flash animation has been fixed, thanks to an alert reader who tipped me to what the problem was. Many thanks! You know who you are. People who had trouble viewing it are invited to go over to The Bloody Borders Project and try it now.
Secondly, I have received a lot of emails with ideas and suggestions, and I’m working on them. The most interesting (and feasible) one is to make larger partial maps for some of the areas. More than one correspondent thought Israel simply got lost in those little maps I posted yesterday.
Making new larger versions will take some time, since it requires writing new program code. But I’ll work on it — and maybe have it ready for the first update, around the end of March.
Last, but not least, I have some logos that people may use if they want to link to the Bloody Borders Project on their own blogs:
They’re all .gif files. The one on the left is designed to be transparent over the Gates of Vienna color scheme (we’ll be using it on our sidebar eventually). The one in the middle is transparent over a white background. The one on the right is for other color schemes, and carries its background with it.
