Post Image: This is the first graphic made for usabecker.com at this site's inception nearly eight years ago. It was recently ransomed from my old server and it just seemed fitting to have it preserved online somewhere. Also, the "itself" is where the "i" in my little favicon comes from. But if you thought it stood for "idiot", we certainly understand. The image is shared under a creative commons BY-NC-SA license.
