Go on then....

sorry, just one last post on Rave Generator ;) It's now hit a staggering 20,000 hits a day. Unbelievable for a simple, yet fun (for a few minutes at least) flash app and a good job I moved hosts too else it would have cost me a fortune!

I gave up on trying to keep a track on all the referral links and you can actually find most of them now by searching for "rave generator" in Google. I do admit to reading most of the forums (where no login is required) and seeing the comments it's getting. I'll also admit to being a bit embarrassed (and possibly flattered :p ) by all the positive comments it gets although it's pretty cool to see something you've made being enjoyed by people from all over the world.

I've got plans for a possible RG2 which will include the ability to play your own notes (rave stabs) alongside the loops, but for now it's just work in progress and I won't rush it out like I did with this one (yes, there are some parts I would have liked to have done differently in hindsight, but not going to change it now) ;) There may also be a Hardcore Breaks (HCB or New 'Old Skool' rave) generator in the pipeline in collaboration with others from the Back To The Old Skool forum. Watch this space :)

In the meantime, christmas is coming which means I'll probably be spending more nights out than in over the next few weeks so if I haven't posted anything up before christmas day then


And just for Scott:

The Rave Generator

It seems that my little 'Rave Generator' flash app is proving popular amongst fellow old skoolers!

It's had over 1000 hits in the last two days and looking at the different links it's getting referred from I can see this will only increase! Unfortunately my host only allows for a small amount of bandwith (about 6gb per month I think) so given that the app is 1.25Mb in size, an estimated average of around 500 hits per day means that I will hit this limit in about 10 days and start incurring costs :(

So, I've moved it to another host and got it it's own domain :D You can now find it over at where I have no bandwidth limitation, woohoo!

I'll try to keep a track of all the links it's being referred from here. Nice to see so many positive comments for this little time filler. I hope you get as much fun playing around with it as I did making it. :)

Well, there you go!

10 Minutes Of Staring at Boobs Daily Prolongs Man's Life by 5 Years...

A German research published in New England Journal of Medicine and Weekly World News said that men staring at women's breasts in fact prolong their lives with years.

"Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female such as Baywatch actress Pamela Lee is equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out," said Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist.

The team led by Weatherby was made up of researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany, and found this results after monitoring for 5 years the health of 200 male subjects, half of whom were asked to look at busty females daily, while the other half had to abstain from doing so.

For five years, the boob oglers presented a lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and decreased risk of coronary artery disease.

"Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation. There's no question: Gazing at large breasts makes men healthier. Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of stroke and heart attack in half." said Weatherby, who even recommended that men aged over 40 should spend at least 10 minutes daily admiring breasts sized "D-cup" or larger.

She said that this was as healthy as going to the gym for 30 minutes daily and prolonged a man's life by five years.

"We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life four to five years." said Weatherby.

The only question is.... why wasn't I asked to be involved in the research!
