    Default Quick Question

    I recently saw a random image load that confused me on how it was done.

    http://sig.grumpybumpers.com/host/jeirhart.gif

    My best guess wast that the jeirhart.gif was actually code that redirected you to a random image, thus loading a random image on the page. However, I am clueless as to how it was done? Anyone have a clue, any help appreciated.

    Regards,

    What browser are you viewing that image in? It looks normally for me.

    Look at the URL once the image is loaded. It is not : http://sig.grumpybumpers.com/host/jeirhart.gif

    Basically it redirects to a random image.. Click on the link 5 times and look at the different images, each with a different URL. They used the .gif as an image source and it loads a random image each time.

    Ah, I'm sure it has to do with an htaccess file.
