Experiments

Here I’m listing a selection of “stuff” that I’m working on. All content is subject to change without notice!
Please don’t bookmark the individual pages as they may change in the future.

Some pages may contain downloads while the others may not. This is just a place to hold links to what I’m working on in my spare time, so don’t expect anything of production quality. Think of them as “rough doodles”.

Font reference

An index of easy to read fonts appropriate for mass publishing or titles. These are intended for demonstration purposes only. All fonts are copyright of their respective owners. There are no downloads on this page.

Unified template

An attempt at creating a comprehensive template that will incorporate CSS, XHTML and JavaScript to act as a starting point for other projects.

Theme variants:

Rockwell Accessible

A combination of elements from all fo my previous work posted here as well as an active effort to improve web accessibiltiy. I’ve made a post about my efforts previously as well as a more detailed description of this theme.

Theme variants:

Color palettes

A collection of palettes that caught my interest while browsing kuler. I plan to add more as I come across them.

SVG Write

A JavaScript utility to convert handwritten content into SVG output. Comes with a more detailed explanation.

One-time pad

An exercise in generating a set of formatted random characters that are used for secure, encrypted, communication. Technically, one-time pads are unbreakable, provided the character sequence is truly random (JavaScript isn’t) and the agents involved follow procedures exactly as instructed (which they sometimes don’t).

If you want a truly cryptographically secure version, read my post on implementing one in C#.

Section5 – Mod-Portal

Following the design tutorial based on Kyle Neath’s Hemmingway template, I decided that a code release in download form would be a good idea. Feel free to take it apart for improvements and updates. Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

Simply – A basic stripped down blog theme

In an effort to minimize download sizes and reduce complexity, this is a “bare essentials” theme created by request.
There is now a version 3 and version 4.
Version 5 added (12/20/2011). The theme has now been rewritten in HTML5.

Mnemonic password generator

Based on the pricnciples of a post I made a while ago on a method of quickly generating a secure password from an easy to remember phrase or other mnemonic, the creation of which was prompted by a comment on my blog questioning its security.

December 21st, 2012 Countdown clock

A simple JavaScript countdown clock to the alleged end of the world.

Basic

A stripped down site theme for corporate-ish sites with just the basics including a topic/post list page. Inspired by the Simply theme, this is an even more minimal version. This also has a community version with some added features.

Pseudo language generator

Creates random language data (that at least looks like a real language) on demand in lieu of the old, Lorem ipsum.
