Ask HN: What about the black bar?

This morning I found a small black bar above the orange HN title bar. I was wondering, am I the only one seeing it? Why is it there?

It's because Andy Grove died, see top posting on the homepage.

Oh, thats sad. Thank you for the clarification.

What's up with the /s.gif though? It's just an empty 1x1 pixel, perhaps used to track (e.g. browsers vs scrapers)?

Edit: Actually it's scaled to 5px height, so the black background is applied? Perhaps just a result of YCs CSS skills. It's Hacker News after all.
