Do you know what is a Gif?

Have you seen lots of these lately?


I could stare at this all day.  Did you used to have something like this when you were younger?  I remember I did.

The above is an animated Gif.  Gifs are "a file in the Graphics Interchange Format specified as GIF89a that contains within the single file a set of images that are presented in a specified order." according to Tech Target.

Do you like Gifs?  Or do you find them annoying?  They seems to be popping up everywhere lately and I am considering begining to include them on my site.  What do you think?
