Under Construction

This site is under construction

(animated Under Construction)
"Yea, so this page isn't finished; what did you expect? But hey, isn't this animated gif totally rad? Woo-Hoo! Look at that shovel go!
(Man at Work) "Interfacing to new technologies is a really big effort for me."
(Man at Work) "Although it shows a man and his shovel, this icon actually represents a catch-all excuse for why my page currently looks so meagre. Surprisingly, I expect all web surfers to understand this obscure symbolism."
('!!Under Construction!!')
"I have a persistent fantasy about being able to eloquently express exactly who I am with this page of mine. Until that comes to fruition, please view my lack of expressive power as merely a temporary phenomenon."
('Area Under Construction') "Sometimes when I'm editing web pages, I pretend I'm a steam shovel moving large quantities of earth around, and I make lots of rumbling whirring heavy machinery noises."
('Under Construction')
"The neat thing about construction in the real world areas is that all expectations of functionality and appearance are quickly and quietly dropped. Please bring that same unquestioning and uncritical attitude to my dinky little web page."

I have high standards for my work. So high, in fact, that no matter how much I work on this page, I'm never quite happy with it. Like everyone else, I resort to using an under construction icon. But you can bet your socks that my icon looks fancier and shinier than your icon!
