I found myself searching our content delivery network (CDN) for lost assets. Assets are like cat pics, selfies, and javascript files—all things that may exist on a given website, that people might want faster, when invoked. Trouble is I haven’t yet identified these particular assets. So I didn’t know what to look for.

Then I found the cache. It manifested as a big, overstuffed manila envelope.

I looked inside, and there they were.

Pillows. With images, each made from embroidered stitching of varying complexity.
