The Chronicle of Idiotic Events
Where Mai records stupid things for the hell of it.
misc notes for gif
gifs are 8 bits aka 2^8 = 256 colors which is s**t
apngs are not officially supported (on chrome, at least), but seems to have the same specs as gifs

in gimp,
can posterize frame by frame to remove colors
colors > info > colorcube analysis to see num of colors on current frame
blah blah blah but it has to be in indexed form blah blah blah

gimp does not support multiple colors maps (aka different palettes per frame)
imagemagick apparently does
no clue for photoshop

aaaand the problem is gif doesn't handle opaque stuff well WELP smilies/icon_rolleyes.gif
