A face of a dice is shown on a bookmark icon link. When you lick the link, the icon changes to a random face of the dice. No new tabs are opened.

       Budum tsh!
Rim shot...get it?
Rim sh...<tap, tap, tap>
is this thing on?

       We apologise again for the fault in the annotations. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked, have been sacked.

       Will these be the standard D6 dieceses(es), or will you use the racier D4, D8, D10, D12, D20 or D30?   

       ...and why exactly are random faces used?   

       ....and why aren't tabs opened?   

       .....and why are the dieces on the links?   

       ......and how many die(s) are we talking about here?   

       .......and why is this better, more interesting, easier, cheaper, or faster than the current process of clicking links?   

       These are all valud questions, which could be easily discussed by editing in a second paragraph to your original idea. Once the true purpose for using dice is explained, I will know enough to be able to vote one way or another on this idea.

       My interpretation of this is that the user is suggesting a series of favicons that rotate on use. It might be possible using XHTML and I can certainly imagine some gaming websites being interested, but it sounds like it would be more effort than it would be worth.

       Certainly, if you had a site about dice, it would behoove you to have a random roll as your favicon!
jutta, May 12 2007

       jutta, I know I for one would certainly enjoy a random roll, now and again.   

       I'd rather have a Coke Zero than a tab.   

       ye_river, will there be any diosceses monitoring these dieceses, or dieces, or dice, or even a die? This is better because you lick the link instead of clicking it.   

       po, I'd rather lick a monitor than a mouse. Lizards are well known to be cleaner than rodents.

       //or will you use the racier D4, D8, D10, D12, D20 or D30// There is no need to stick to Platonic dice if they are merely graphical whimsies. A five-sided die should be feasible, Shirley?

       //Lizards are well known to be cleaner than rodents.//   

       Just don't let one bite you! Id rather be bitten by the rodent.

       I too am intruiged by this idea of using the tongue-screen interface as a new form of human-computer-interaction. I fear though that the most enthusiastic adopters of this technology will be from the online porn industry.

       Isn't the tongue the most advanced muscle in the body, as to being able to articulate itself in all directions and make weird shapes.. and stuff. Oh well, if we develop an input device that worked with your tongue, there'd be some kind of tongue-stress-syndrome like carpel tunnel, but for your tongue.   

       Mother: "Why are you talking funny, Jimmy?" Jimmy: "I had to type up a long report for english class."   

       Now Jimmy has a proper excuse for when he gets wasted and stumbles his words. He can blame his stumbling body on a bad case of the Wii's.
