programmer-tshirtMany thanks to all the bloggers who linked to my programmer T-shirts for charity project. Patrick McKenzie has very generously donated his time[1] and some space on his server to set-up a dedicated website at programmer-tshirts.com. If any of you feel like promoting the new website you could put a small ad on the side of your blog (see right) or display the flash panel shown on the new website (wordpress.com apparently doesn’t allow embedded flash).

The HTML for the ad is:

<table style="text-align:left;width:200px;"
       border="1" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0">
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>
      <table style="text-align:left;width:200px;"
             border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="2">
        <tbody>
          <tr align="center">
            <td>
              <big><a href="http://www.programmer-tshirts.com/">
              T-shirts for programmers</a></big>
            </td>
          </tr>
          <tr align="center">
            <td>
                 <a href="http://www.programmer-tshirts.com/">
                 <img style="border:0 solid;width:172px;height:175px;"
                 alt="programmer t-shirts"
                 src="https://successfulsoftware.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/programmer-tshirt.png"></a>
            </td>
          </tr>
          <tr align="center">
            <td>All proceeds to charity</td>
          </tr>
        </tbody>
      </table>
      </td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>

In WordPress you can just add it as a text widget (Dashboard>Appearance>Widgets).

The source for the flash panel is:

<embed wmode="transparent"
   src="http://www.zazzle.com/utl/getpanel?zp=117873325148652352"
   FlashVars="feedId=117873325148652352&path=http://www.zazzle.com/assets/swf/zp/skins"
   width="450" height="300" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash">
</embed>

Even if you just run it for a week or two before Xmas that would be great.
