Am I Nuts or Not?

Your mission, should you be bored enough at your day job to accept it, is to create a tool that'll take an incoming URL, and determine how statistically crazy the site is. You would use factors like the average font size, the amount of text that's emphasized, the variety of font colors, and the length of individual pages. Oh, and the frequency of the hard-rule tag.

Then it would spit out a craziness factor, maybe broken down into various spectra, like "paranoia" or "pseudoscience" or "shrillness." I dunno.

Look, you figure it out. I'm the Big Picture guy, here.

Are you looking for just design craziness or do you want to delve into content too?

Ooh, do you think it's possible to include content? That seems like it'd pretty tricky, but I would be neat if you could do it.

Of COURSE it's possible to include content. Some folks have jobs doing exactly that. (Your tax dollars at work here!)

OK, well, I figured it was possible but maybe not exactly practical for this application. It'd be cool though!

I'm feeling a bit like toasted crap myself, but it's gotta be allergies (sniffly, sneezing, running nose, itchy eyes). I'm back on the Claritin. Is helping.

Sigh. Well, we went into it knowing the risk. I don't regret it for a minute!

I love it. Though I personally am way too retarded Luddite to help - I don't even know what the hard-rule tag is.

Hee! It's just the tag that gives you a nice, bold horizonal line across the screen. Crazy sites often have a lot of them.

The Plague
I'm so sorry about the plague sharing everyone. Bah. :(

Rowan succumbed this morning. My poor baby. Morrigan is starting to feel better.

I suppose that I will insist on everyone bathing in antibacterial schtuff next time.

I hope everyone gets to feeling better soon.

Re: The Plague
Oh, I am feeling much better! No worries, honey. We totally knew what we were getting into, and I would not change our decision to come out there for anything! We had such a wonderful time, and Mom sends her gratitude for the hospitality, and lots of hugs.

She, of course, isn't sick. She's got the immune system from heck!

You guys are just the best. Your generosity with your home, time, and energy is enormous, and I can't thank you enough. Much love to you, and your poor sick li'l sprout.

Bungee? Bungees are for people too lazy to make the commitment of a couple of titanium bolts!
