The latest update to glowtxt.com added a ton of new fonts and a couple of new options.
The “Glowing Halo” option adds a slight glow halo effect around the edges of the font.
The “Solid Background” option can be used where you don’t want the background of a page to interefere with the display of the font.
The “non-animated” option displays the font without the pulsing glow effect, which may be not be ideal for all uses!
New font style “Insignia” (white outline/solid background selected) –
Some of the new fonts added include more handwriting fonts, along with a lot of new gold fill style fonts, and some other nice pirate and miscellanous ones. As usual, there are a couple more fonts hidden away in the “Style” option that aren’t shown as sample graphics on the front page.
Check out this cool new Myspace music player skin generator that we have created for the people at songskins.com.
If you visit Myspace a lot, you might have noticed that some people have their own customised music player on their page. Now you can make your own one with this easy to use generator. Upload a picture to use on the player, or just choose your favourite colours then click the button to get the code to use on your Myspace page.
The glowtxt.com site got some more fonts added, also the hosting was moved from Ireland to America (better connectivity and cheaper bulk bandwidth).
glowtxt.com lets you create your own personalised glowing text messages. There is no software to install and it works in all browsers, just type in your messages, select your font and size, and push the button 🙂
First test of PaperSnow site, final version to come (maybe in time for next Christmas…)
The idea here was to use mostly Creative Commons pictures as backgrounds for a java snowfall applet. There are a lot of snow effect scripts and pages out there, but they are usually tightly scripted, and mostly just simple animations. Papersnow uses a slightly more realistic and interactive snowfall effect to try out some different ways of combining images and coded effects on a site. But, it’s mostly there just to look nice 🙂
