My favicon.ico is rather lame: cheap, ugly, amateurish and simple. (before anyone makes the joke "favicons should represent the personality of its 'owner', and that describes you perfectly", I'll make it first). You will not be surprised that it was created in a minute or two using Microsoft's simple Paint program.
How does one (who has very limited skill in such things) go about creating a better one? Are they difficult to design? If a software download is needed, I'll probably not bother.
Is there someone out there who reads this blog who would be willing to create one for me? For free?
