    Someone suggested adding image display effects that they saw on Christian Effenberger's site. And so I have. The idea behind this extension is simple - find all img tags and change the className to one of the several image styles of Christian Effenberger at http://www.netzgesta.de/cvi/. Since his …

  • flashclocks
    This extension will display a flash clock in the side panel. Two flash clocks are provided. The default is set to the large clock which not only has a clock but also a calendar.
