Boy, I love these quickie half hour projects. Got the idea for this one from http://www.random.org/

http://www.rpi.edu/~laporj2/noise.html (refresh for a new image)

Nothing too fancy, though since XBM's are easier to manipulate than I thought, I may be using them more. However, I can;t seem to get this script to run in Opera... any ideas?

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

Oh, yes it's possible. My very first javascript raycaster ( done in late 2001 ) was in XBM [edit] actually I generated all the possible slices in XBM [/edit], so is Wolfenstein 5K by Lee SEMEL.

Updated with animation, though I used a bit of a hack to make the image refresh each time... is there a better way to do it?

Kewl as. I had long ago given up trying to find an XBM equivelant for IE back when I was primarily using netscape4. Here is a resurrect script (or should I say totally rewritten as I lost my original version).

Can you guess what it is? :-)

Afraid not. A limitation of the XBM image format is it's lack of color.

Hahaha, awesome. I didn't get it to work in Firefox, though it ran without trouble in MSIE. Very sweet. Especially with the loader percentage.

I've been working on colors. best I can do is 3.... still working.

Thanks for the comment. I figured the % counter would be beneficial. It allowed me to know how long until I had before it was necessary to look at the screen again. I was going blind with non centering problems....

Yes, you cheated. Nice use of MSIE effects. I wonder if there's a cross-browser way of doing similar, though.

Cross Browser is like Cross Dressing: I do not do it.


Ok, my last one. It's 6:30am. Maybe I can get 2 hours sleep today.

Bigger and slower but it's got dynamic resizing with respect to the winow size. Oh, and a nice little progress bar too.

Hehehe, yay, more XBMS!

The new implementation of your Mandelbrot is pretty cool. I don't think XBM's are what you would want, though, since you want color and don't have animation of any kind. Why not document.write() a table of colored 1x1 cells instead? It would be faster to render and be cross browser (so I can play with it under Linux ).
