This may be the Ultimate Web Thingy. It converts pictures (in JPEG, GIF or PNG form) to a table of tiny 1-pixel colored boxes in HTML (web browser language). But the best thing about it is its disclaimers:

Why does it take so long to load?
Tables are an inefficient way of encoding detailed graphics. …

Why does it take so long to display?
Web browsers are designed to display image files; they aren’t optimised for 10,000 cell tables. …

So it’s big, bloated and slow. What use is this?
In its pure form, none. At least none that I can think of.

Ah, the difference between Pure Science and Applied Science… gotta love it.
