Speaking of broken JPEGs

Media

Remember my artistically broken JPEG that rendered as if it were a series of Wiphalas? Not to be outdone by its past self, today my MacBook Air mixed my rainbow gelati image into what you see above. A somewhat haunted version of my Life of Brian image was also created.

While common in the dial–up days, I haven't seen images break like this in a long time. It appears to happen when I close my MacBook Air on WiFi, then wake it from sleep with wired Ethernet.

I'm almost excited to see what pretty art it generates next for us!
