I just created a favicon (random clear background lightning bolt) for technotes.seastrom.com.

I had contemplated just turning off logging of errors for attempts to grab /favicon.ico but it’s not the aughts anymore, and there are a bunch of favicon variants - Big, small, bookmark, iPad, Android… the list goes on. Creating exceptions for logging all of them would have been… painful.

The path of least resistance was finding a high enough resolution picture that I liked and feeding it to RealFaviconGenerator which generated all the variants I might want and provided them in a zip file ready to be merged into my site.
