Stuck Pixel Utility

Ever had a stuck pixel on your LCD screen? Lore has it that if you blink that pixel for a few minutes, you can sometimes unstick it. However, I don't really want to download a program just to blink a pixel.

Here is a stuck lcd pixel utility on an HTML 5 webpage using the <canvas> tag. Arrow keys to aim the blinking pixel, and "r/g/b/w" to switch the color.

So, did it work? Don't keep us in suspense! :)

Nope, didn't work!

Lore has it that you can also "tap tap tap" on the screen to unstick a pixel. That actually works for me temporarily, but then the pixel gets re-stuck in a few minutes.
