Random Colors of the Day

Find some inspiration to brighten your colorspace! The three options below are based on trying to assign names to colors as they are represented on a computer screen, typically via a hex value like this: "#546789".

Back in the day, the X11 Consortium declared that colors would be stored in a file called "rgb.txt" and many had names associated with them. Additionally, I found a list of colors and names based on Resene colors. The third one is what happens if you pick a random value and call it a random name. Very useful and highly scientific.

About

This is a place where I keep my stuff on the web. The contents and appearance change with time, but tend to reflect my interests. Those interests include: writing, technology, computers, software (both as a user and a developer), 3D printing, crafting, role playing games, computer games, music, art and woodworking to name a few. I do a variety of things that change often and sometimes without warning and typically reflect things I'm curious about.
