“Everything” is amazing.

For those that have trouble finding their files on their computer or just get tired clicking through folders, I recommend that you try out a super fast search tool called “Everything”. Windows 7 has a simpler feature in the start menu, but Everything works with Windows 2000 – windows 7 and is portable with a few other features. “Everything” combined with Launchy great me increase my productivity.

Random CSS generator with evolution.

Hey Guys,
What if you could just write HTML and have the CSS generate itself?
Well, this question have been bugging me for while, so I decided to program it.

Method:
The method in which I did so what the following. I wanted to simulate evolution by having the user selecting which CSSJSON object would have offspring, in an attempt to find the perfect css for the html layout.

I’m think if I applied statistics to see which traces are favorable over all the selected offspring, then the resulting offspring would come out to being more to want the user wants. Also, I discovered that the structure of the html and the choice of tags are fundamental to clean and simple design. CSS can only do so much.

Issues:

  • Works with Chrome, Firefox and Opera
  • Layout needs some fixing up.
