Um, really? If we are doing this, shouldn't it be punch cards instead?

Why did my parents always avoid just telling me the truth about where mouse cursors come from? Some things, I'll never understand.

Oh man. This brings back memories of my family making out annual trips to the cursor farm. We're roam the rows and rows of cursors for hours finding that perfect one.

And then my parents got a divorce and I would go alone and pick out the sad, lopsided one with that awful bare spot you have to face towards the wall.


Ahhh memories.

How many more steps after initial harvest? For the standard cursor, they've at least got to paint it white. Not sure how they'd do the inverted-colour cursor though.

So my incessant clicking during woot-offs is destroying a forest? My bad.

It is a really cute shirt Woot... but no matter how cute you spell it, it is still cream colored. I would totally buy this in a Heather Gray

Mistook it for an early Ugly Winter Sweater shirt at first glance...cursors can be harvested any month. I wonder if they shed anything in the fall? And can there be blinking lights? And candy canes?

I keep staring at the pattern expecting it to be Morse Code or binary or some sort of cipher.

So far nothing is jumping out at me.

Are you interpreting (for example) stumps as 0 and standing trees as 1? I doubt it says anything - what do you do about the lumberjacks, and the slanted trees?

This looks suspiciously like Morse code, with the long/short interspersal....

For those who commented that they had seen this before, it was featured by Gizmodo on May 12, 2010. Giz got it from thenextweb.com which had posted Mr. Pyle's design earlier that day.

Hi! It is I, Nathan. This is my first sale on woot, and I'm so pumped!

Just FYI - the image has made its way around the web, especially after some awesome exposure on Gizmodo and gotopublicschool - then on to swiss-miss and shoopthat, etc.

Thanks so much

After looking at this, I'm even afraid to ask to see where those "hand" cursors come from:



Ouch... that must be painful!!!!

Oh Wow, I was using the StumbleUpon toolbar earlier today and saw this image on TheNextWeb, thought it was really awesome. Hop on tonight to check out the shirt, and it's the same exact thing I saw earlier.

Coincidence or not, it's still an awesome shirt either way!

As someone who just broke his wrist, the thought of that makes me cringe.

Cream? Seriously?

And it's a cute shirt, but is anyone but an uber geek going to recognize those little triangles as cursors?

Put a little snow on some tree tops and maybe some ornaments and you could make it a Christmas tee in 6 months.
