Active Desktop

I was in intrigued by the ‘Active Desktop’ which basically allows a web page to be embedded into the background of a windows XP desktop. This means simple javascript could be used to move images and add some flavor to an otherwise boring and static background. It was around the Chinese New Year, so I decided to make an moving desktop that had floating, interactive icons. It took about an evening, but the final result is a fun background. The fortune cookie generates a fortune whenever it is pressed. I didn’t write any of the fortunes myself–in case anyone was wondering. Fortune cookies are a completely American invention anyway.
