Playing With Meme-Things

I don't usually do memes, but this one is too much of a cool trick. It's the fun of self-modifying GIF files that sniff their own HTTP GET requests:

What the'!?

1. What is it?
2. How do it work?

It lists the last ten people to look at my journal through their Friends Pages. It tracks the HTTP GET requests made, and when it sees a referrer of the form exampleusername.livejournal.com/friends/ or www.livejournal.com/~exampleusername/friends, it adds it to the list...

This Comment Gives It Away, Though

I guess I won't ever be showing up on that list, then. No referrers here, and manual image loading anyway. (...though I s'pose anyone could just spoof anyone else if they felt like it.)

I shall sit here and look confused...

Nifty little thing. I had to put it on my LJ as well, lol. Too nifty a little meme not to.

You are the second person I came up first in this list. Is that bad?

Well, when you view your LJ Friends page, you're obviously going to be the most recent viewer of a given journal through such a page! Of course you're going to show up first on all of them!
