New website created


I’ve been busy creating another website to add to my small empire, and while there’s more features to add, I favour an itterative approach – i.e. get something up there, with working features, and add in as you go.  With your own websites, I always advocate that appraoch, as if you try to write EVERYTHING before you put it up, you’ll often fail and never get there. Also don’t over engineer – don’t start writing huge amounts of backend code ‘in case’ you ever need it – write what you need when you need it.That might sound short sighted, but in reality, you hardly ever end up re-using as much code as you thought, and unless you are 100% sure of what you might need later, you will get it wrong anyway!

My new insult generator website

My new insult generator website

Anyway – the new website; – this one’s not for children or the easily offended!  It’s a all done in the name of comedy and humour (if really rude insults make you laugh!) – and is a “Insult generator” – creating really funny and rude (and just plain wrong) insults randomly, from a growing database of ‘parts’.  Within three days of going live, the insult generator already has over 1,000,000 possible insult combinations.

Not only can you generate insult after insult, but you can also contribute – thanks to a simple web form.  I have knocked up a basic admin page (password protected obviously!) where I can ‘ok’ contributions, and I intend to add to the functionality, allow ‘e-mail an insult’ to your friends.  To generate the insults, I make use of some of the MySQL magic to randomly generate numbers, to order, and to limit rows.

It’s all a bit of fun, only a few nights work, but it makes me laugh 🙂
