Using data from page-watch.com this shows a time-lapse of reddit overnight on January 20th taken at 5minute intervals. This excludes images which is why there are occasional jumps where advertisements are.
This is probably my last side project before I relocate and start my new job, presenting page-watch. I created it to scratch a personal itch that I had which was I was finding it difficult to track changes on websites that were relatively static with infrequent updates. There are other page monitoring web tools out there, what makes this one different is that it is a) dead simple b) has an rss option.
If you find it useful I would love to hear what you think, I will hopefully write a follow-up post with more technical details when my life ...
After spending way too much time trying different ascii headers on this blog I decided it would be fun to code up a little easter egg. Click on my profile picture above and have fun!
I'm going to post the source code soon on github but basically
all that it is doing is loading the header as json
and using canvas for the board. Pretty simple and I think it would
be fun to make this work for any arbitrary text.
More to come soon!
