/ then your username followed by
.png into the url like

some cool stats
total number of generated SHA1vatars:
number of generated SHA1vatars over time
its giving me a 404 error
make sure your url ends with
.png and nothing else
why does it look different to my one on GitHub?
thats because it is as GitHub said in their blog they use your account id to generate the hash and I'm not sure what algorithm GitHub use
can I download my SHA1vatar?
yes just right click and save as or proxy or download how you would with the application you're developing, i would love to know if you use this in your project send me an email and let me know.
whats the licence for this?
the generated SHA1vatar have no licence and should remain that way (it's a randomly generated 5x5 block of squares) and the code is under the MIT licence
can I host this myself?
yes! that would be better for me too you can take a look at the github repo here
