asks, "I would like to commend you on the great random generators! I am wondering if you still do updates on it?"
Thank you, and yes.Chris
says, "I am the lead guitarist and vocalist for Super 17, a Band out of Melbourne, Australia....Is there a copyright law on Randomly Generated Files/Data/Stuff etc.?"
The text is all random. I don't claim any copyright on it. The images in the random comics are the ownership of the people who made them and can only be used for that exact purpose.Ryan
told me, "Hi. You may remember me. I wrote a song called Skull Cracking Windchime
using lyrics from your random lyrics generator. You may be interested to know that Skull Cracking Windchime
was played on the radio. It was number one on Louisville's local music show's request list for two weeks. I still perform it live, and I always plug your site."
Awesome! Ryan's band is Thirtysilver
. You can email him to buy a copy of the CD.
It would be interesting if there were a compilation CD of songs inspired by the random generators.Harry Cheesman
writes, "My name is Harry Cheesman. At the following link amongst lots of famous people's names I saw my name! How is this?" And then he links to the dump of the database.
OK, who put Harry Cheesman's name in the database?
said, "I have just found out that you are a googlewhack. It means that you are the only person who has the two words antidisenstablishmentarianism
on your website."
It's a side effect of that database dump. It's attracting lots of strange google traffic, I guess. There are probably many, many googlewhacks from the database. For example, I found "trepidatiously tribally" pretty easily.Craig
asks, "What language are you coding in?"
I think the answer you want is PHP
. There's a good book about it called Core PHP Programming
continues, "I started a new random URL site called CraigsRandomWebsite.com
and would really really really appreciate it if you mentioned it on your site or in your blog. I also have other 'random' content that your readers might enjoy."
I thought the Jokes with Realistic Endings
article on Something Awful
was hillarious. It kind of reminded me of the random jokes. Maybe I should see if there are a few more patterns to pull out and put into the generator.
