  1. Yes but what is the correct term to search for topics to learn about this so I can do it myself and see results in Google Analytics? Thanks for your help.
  2. As my username suggests, silly questions. We were in a meeting this week and suddenly to URLs of our homepage & and or ? and or = with letters were being added to track visitors from a third party website we are paying to be featured. If I Google tracking I do not find anything. Can someone please tell me what are my colleagues doing here, what is the right term, so I can research it? Many thanks for your help.
  3. Pink eye, also called conjunctivitis, left the white of my eyes green, I was wondering if there are any tips / old wives tales / household remedies to get the colour back to white again, fast? How many days should it take to change back naturally?
  4. stackoverflow gets angry for questions that have already been asked but searching past questions is not always easy...
  5. Thank you again for your lovely replies in relation to my noise to colour background. I want to take this one step further. I have a photo as a background to a div. #div-info{ background-image: url(/img/photo.jpg); } I want to add this 'noise' on that photo. I want to add a colour overlay (I think overlay is the right word for this?) above that. Can anyone help me? Thank you in advance for your help.
  6. When I open a PDF in Safari I want it to show at 100% of the document size, not 100% of the screen size. Can anyone tell me if there is a setting to change this? This is for when I open the PDF in Safari, not download and open in Preview, Adobe, etc. Many thanks for your help.
  7. Is this something new? Or at least how it is being used? Why do people upload images if all images can be represented like this? As I type that I feel it’s a silly question! By copying and pasting these characters to use in my site, am I then not stealing? And which loads faster - the tiny png or this code? Why would someone choose one method above the other? Thank you for your help.
  8. I have learned so much from your post. Thank you,. But... (1) What I do not understand is, is that mumbo jumbo just describing a URL somewhere on the internet, that, at the end of the day I am using (technically stealing - and if the owner of that image decided to remove it, it would be lost from my site too) or is that mumbo jumbo actually creating such an image? If it is the former, then it is just a way of encrypting a URL... and, meh. If it is the latter... then COOL! (2) There is a + in the middle of that mumbo jumbo, and if I double click to select all it only highlights up to the plus sign. I managed to use a tool (see below) to actually acquire a PNG but my question from (1) still confuses me. Thank you again! No because this is the first time I am learning about these things. Thanks for your reply. Thank you for your replies. I have saved these links immediately. I never knew something like this existed. I quote my questions from the other replies:
  9. I am a little bit speechless at the lovely replies here and more than grateful.

But I have no idea what it is. Can anyone tell me please in plain English how it works? Or just the name of the effect so I can go and research it myself? If I change the mumbo jumbo of characters, does the noise pattern change? Any time I tried it does not seem to work. If I simply copy and paste this code to my site, am I stealing someone else's work? I do not want to use something and not understand what it is. Thank you for your help!
