Generate Everything from Graffiti to Web Buttons!

Regular readers of this blog will know that I'm a great fan of gadgets. I stumbled across another one a few days ago. The Glassy Button Generator will be of interest to web designers who are in a hurry and those who are aesthetically challenged. Just plug in a few variables, such as foreground and background colours, button dimensions, typeface, font size, etc., and this useful tool will crank out a round-edged glassy looking button for you to grab and save. It even creates rollovers.

I got this great find at The Generator Blog, another bookmark topper. This blog provides daily links to sites that generate all kinds of things from utter nonsense like the Silly Walk Generator, the Bush Speech Generator, and the Graffiti Generator I used to create the illustration for this post. These silly examples are utter time-wasters, but the Generator Blog links to dozens of useful resources too, like the Random Texture Generator and DiscoverySchool's Worksheet Generator.

The Generator Blog is a guaranteed time-gobbler. Check it out. And if you like these suggestions, please consider blogrolling Random Bytes.
