Im on ur desk… showin u lolcats

I’ve always been a fan of desk crap. Anything that adds a little zing to the day and doesn’t piss of the employer makes for a nice deviation from angry customers. Enter the lolcat: http://icanhascheezburger.com/

I decided that I wanted to get a digital frame and stuff it full of lolcats. They’ve come down considerably in price so I blew $60 on one at Wal-Mart: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=8250770

It may be a little too small/cheap for your tastes, but I’ll leave that to you. What’s important is the 4:3 ratio which matches the lolcat pics. You can purchase the widescreen frames, but they’re either going to skew the image or add black bars on the side. So what do you do?

1. Perform a full site rip of I Can Has Cheezburger. (Won’t someone please think of the bandwidth?)
2. Sort the 2000+ pictures, removing the vertically oriented ones.
3. Scan through each of them for violent/sexual/drug related content.
4. Resize them.

Or you could just download my beefy zip file with 1500 images and this all done for you. I’ve got them in two flavors – The original size and 320×234, which is what my little frame uses.

As a side note, I have no interest in angering or depriving revenue of the owner of I Can Has Cheezburger. This is just a pointless little project done for personal use.
