Metro North warning graphic

So for every "rule" of web design, there are of course necessary exceptions. I hate animated GIFs for the most part. I hate pointless uses of bright, distracting color. But I'll be damned if I don't like this little picture that the Metro-North Railroad used to alert passengers to the schedules as modified by Hurricane Floyd last week.

(Link above is double-duty. Refers to hurricane, and answers everyone's questions to me last week about where the naming system comes from. Why did everyone ask me? And why did I know the answer?)

Metro North Emergency!

But why the hell doesn't the last row of pixels in "Click Here" blink? Curse me and my obsessiveness...

Unrelated question: Lloyd, two L's. Floyd, one L. There's something damned annoying about all of this. And why aren't both L's capitalized?
