New Peking Duck Favicon

Hopefully you’ve all noticed the cool little “favicon” up in the address bar by my site name — the little duck head, to be precise. This was created by John Pasden of Sinosplice free of charge, and I can’t think him enough.

I’m looking at it now, to the left of my url in the address bar on top. Also, if for some reason you saved pekingduck.org in your Favorites, the favicon shows up there, too. I saw it at work today using IE, and I see it now using Firefox.

For people who have already saved this site in their Favorites, you will have to delete the old one and re-save again to see the little duck head in the Favorties.

You’ve really got to check out the latest stories over at the North Korean News agency … there’s a hilarious piece complaining about an Italian newspaper article that reported a soccer riot in North Korea. Here’s an excerpt to wet your appetite:

Every spectator is obliged to discern or watch if any match is underway according to the rules.
This being a hard fact, how can the reasonable protest made by spectators against the unfair refereeing at the end of the match be interpreted as a “commotion” or “disorder”?
Truth to tell, Korean spectators remained tolerant when they watched the chief referee of Thailand going without giving an 11m penalty kick twice during the match between the DPRK eleven and the Bahraini team.
An 11m penalty kick was not declared against the Iranian team when it committed two foul plays during the match held in the same stadium five days later. This could not but lash the spectators into fury at the end of the match.
Had there been any “popular commotion” in the stadium as claimed by the newspaper, the match would not have taken place properly due to the rash acts of the supporters. In fact, there was nothing that hamstrung the match.
The newspaper claimed there was a fight between Korean supporters and the referee. When did it take place and when did they throw stones on the field?
This was a sheer fabrication.
Not a single supporter went down to the field, much less touching even a hair of the referee during the match. It is preposterous, indeed, to depict the 90 minute-match as a “fight” and a “commotion”.
The referees could not leave the stadium soon after the match was over entirely not because somebody stood in their way. This happened because extremely unfair refereeing made them feel guilty conscience.
