Looks like just a bit of coding (to make the php file) and a few image files is all it takes.

OK thanks, if nobody else objects I'll put the image into my sig in a few days or so, probably with a mint-green color scheme instead of pink and purple.

The code is here:
Spoiler:

Code: Select all


<?php
makeImageF("$q","Eurosti.TTF");

function makeImageF($text, $font="Eurosti.TTF", $W=550, $H=44, $A=0, $X=6, $Y=20, $fsize=12, $color=array(0x80,0x00,0x40), 
$bgcolor=array(0xFF,0xCD,0xE6)){


   $numberone = "Vepis? Papopivapi wapebabom, pa?";
   $numbertwo = "Sazza, lasiafatas bafom.";
   $numberthree = "Šipaši! Bumabi!";
   $numberfour = "Papuprevis, puffi.";
   $numberfive = "Lilalupa wapapetam pallwaba.";

    $numbersix = "Why? Because I grow tulips?";
 $numberseven = "Today is veterans' day.";
 $numbereight = "Hurry! Swim against the current!";
 $numbernine = "I blushed when I saw your insulting gift.";
 $numberten = "Butterflies to freedom fly.";
 
    $a=array($numberone,$numbertwo,$numberthree,$numberfour,$numberfive);


    $keykey = array_rand(array_keys($a)); 

    $text = $a[array_rand($a)];

    $text = $a[$keykey];

    


    $bbb = array($numbersix,$numberseven,$numbereight,$numbernine,$numberten);
     $bext = $bbb[$keykey];

    $im = @imagecreate($W, $H)
        or die("Cannot Initialize new GD image stream");

    $tolor = array(0x00,0x00,0x40);
       
    $background_color = imagecolorallocate($im, $bgcolor[0], $bgcolor[1], $bgcolor[2]);        //RGB color background.
    $text_color = imagecolorallocate($im, $color[0], $color[1], $color[2]);            //RGB color text.

    $text_tolor = imagecolorallocate($im, $tolor[0], $color[1], $color[2]);     

    
    imagettftext($im, $fsize, $A, 6, 20, $text_color, $font, $text);
     imagettftext($im, $fsize, $A, 6, 36, $text_tolor, $font, $bext);
    

   
    header("Content-type: image/png");               
    return imagepng($im);
}

?>

Im sure there's a better way to do it ... Im a novice programmer at best, and PHP isnt my language ... but it works, and the bandwidth used is so tiny that Im not really worried about efficiency. I'd like to eventually make something more elaborate, perhaps a dynamically generated weather report, for which I'd need to learn at least a little bit more code so I could figure out how to position images inside other images and alongside text.

edit: got the weather thing started ... images & text together requires a whole different approach, apparently ... and I wont load it up until i can show something other than just random numbers and static images. right now at http://pabappa.com/pics/weather7.php if anyone's curious, though.

We don't have a Random Sound-Changes Thread. Wouldn't we like one?
We have a Random Phoneme-Inventory Thread; and we have a Sound Change Game Thread.

Also: We don't have a Hangeulization Thread. Wouldn't we like one?
We do have a Romanization Game Thread, and a Cyrillicization Game Thread.

Are you saying you're going to make one?

I would post random sound change ideas in the thread you called "Random Phoneme-Inventory Thread", because I understand its title more like "random phonology ideas".

No; I was only looking for one.

Where would be the best place to go, to learn about how sound-changes work, and which ones are most likely, and so on?
