Twitter contest: what can you code in 130 characters?

I just posted the following snippet on Twitter. The exercise is to write meaningful and preferably cool code that fits in a Twitter message along with the #twitcode keyword, which leaves 130 characters.

private static readonly byte[] _blankGif =
  Convert.FromBase64String(
"R0lGODlhAQABAID/AMDAwAAAACH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAEBMgA7");

I can’t wait to see what people come up with.

Monitor the results from here:

@Dominic: the prize is bragging rights of course! Actually, wait, I said contest but I'm not going to pick a winner. Let's have everyone pick their favorite by making a tweet pointing at it.

@Harry: @bleroy. I added a Twitter badge to the left sidebar of the blog.

@Willem: mmh. How is it not working? Are you getting an error or something else?

You get an ugly, raw RSS feed with your link(which may look fine in Firefox but not in Chrome).  Willem's link gives you a browser agnostic view.
