Creating Favorite Icons For Your Website

Usually, I have so many browser tabs open that I only see the icons. And, my server logs fill with "favico.ico not found" errors. So, for the sites I manage, I want custom icons for easy identification. But, creating icons is a pain, right? Today, I was fed up with locating a couple of my sites which do not have icons. I thought, "I wonder if Linux's convert tool will make one for me without much effort." Sure enough:

convert --resize 16x16 cribbed_sqare_image.png favicon.ico

scp favicon.ico myserver:/docroot

Done!
