Today (after lots of code tweaking in preparation), the tag clouds that recently appeared on the blog now have links on each tag so you can see which posts havethat particular tag. Currently, the
Next Page and
Pevious Page links are a little bit buggy, but that problem should be fixed sooner or later, I just need to make a few more changes to the code to make it more intelligent.
Next Page and
Previou Page buttons have been fixed! I have also added
First Page and
Last Page butttons too - the last page button was the reason it took to long to refactor the code :)
Yesterday I added a tag cloud to the website. You can find it at the top of the blog, or below the post on the article view. The tags are not yet linked to a list of posts that have the corresponding tags, as I need to some a litttle bit of refactoring of the blog's code in order to get that to work.
Today marks the release of a larger project that I have been doing, called Imaanvas. It has been in the works for months and is meant to be a web based version of a program called MSW Logo, which is now called FMS Logo. It has a few tweaks, though, to make it slightly easier to use. It was orignally written for a year 5 class in a primary school.
It also does not come with all the commands present in Logo, so if you find that a command is missing please comment below and I will try to add it for you as soon as I have some spare time. (You can also write the command yourself, and I can add it that way, but will probaby need the original source code for that - gulp is used to compact the code - send me an email if you want the code)
Immanvas is a horribly complex piece of code - so if you encounter any bugs (which is likely), please either leave a comment below, or send me an email. Remember to be descriptive about the bug that you have found, otherwise I won't be able to track it down and fix it! Also remember that Imaanavs is meant for modern browsers, so if Imaanvas doesn't work in your browser, try upgrading it to it's latest version.
This post is late since essential maintenance work had to be carried out to try and reduce the amount of spam that is being posted.
Yesterday I tweaked and updated the website. Here are the thing that I changed:

If you discover any issues while using the website, please leave a comment below. Antispam measures for this blog in particular seem to cause issues - in which case you can send bug reports to
bugs at starbeamrainbowlabs dot com.
More changes will be coming in the near future, such as an Atom feed for comments and an email notification system for replies to your comments.
Update: The Atom feed for comments has been created! You can find it over at feed.comments.php.
To use it, simply drag the link below to your bookmarks bar and then click the bookmark when you want to use it. After it loads, you can then select the element of the page you want to focus, indicated by the blue border. You can also press 'A' to attempt to autoselect a flash object, while avoiding ads.
If you can't get the bookmarklet to load by dragging the link above to your bookmarks, copy and paste the following code into a new bookmark:
I am also trialing a new syntax highlighter along with this post! It is possible that the site may not work as expected during this trial period.
Edit: Testing complete! This blog now has code syntax highlighting enabled thanks to PrismJS.
Welcome to starbeamrainbowlabs.com.
I will hopefully post about things I have learnt, found and made here.
Please note that this website is still under construction.
