Off Topic - Notes

Published:

Years ago on my website I had attempted to create color charts because at that time I was dissatisfied with what was offered on the web regarding same and I wanted to launch a website background project with a better idea of what I needed to do. Two of these files remain today, one based on font against either a white or black background, the other based on colors inside table cells - a pure color display, including comparisons. Each of them offer 4,096 colors - simplified, no names, simply the colors along with their hex code. This project is complete - I haven't touched it in more than a couple of years.

Imagine my surprise when one of the competitors in the Omaha tournament came up to me and asked if I was the "johnph77" who created these color charts. I replied in the affirmative and she said she referred to them whenever she had any graphics task involving the use of colors assigned to her and also when she was creating her personal web pages. I thanked her for her compliments.

But I was astonished. Someone took notice of my work even though I posted the output mainly for my own benefit and absolutely made no effort to publicize those pages other than through the titles on the web page, which would only be found when doing a search for the subject.

To those of you who would publish free lottery systems on the Internet, don't lose hope - someone will find you - and thank you.

Yep. Code I've posted here has wound up on other websites (comments and all). No credit given to me, though. Kind of amusing now, but not when it first happened. :-)
