Famous Last Words.

Just a quick one, I wasn't planning on giving you anything today but this is just too good to ignore. It's Wordle: a simple premise executed brilliantly. Essentially, bung in a load of words (song lyrics, passages from a favourite film, a recipe for spaghetti bolognese. whatever) and it'll spit out a "beautiful word cloud". Then you can fanny about with various settings until it looks perfect and then admire it. Or you can do what I did and make it your desktop wallpaper by 'alt+printscreen'ing it and pasting it into MS Paint. So now, when I boot up the faithful old lappy, I see This. Try it yourself, it looks great. Now, for kicks, here's the front page of this here blog in word-cloud form. Shazam!
