Daniel Johnson's personal fragment of the web

Textflow

This is a pretty dumb experiment, really. I got the idea one day when I was absentmindedly typing into a blank page. I noticed that if I pressed and held multiple keys, it would repeatedly type all of them. I did this for some time, and discovered that by inserting text at the start of a document when the document consists of lots of repeated sequences, the sequences seem to dance and jitter due to the irregularities in letter width. So, of course, I wrote up a quick script in Javascript to simulate this, and then made it colorful. Don’t expect anything profound. It’s literally just text moving across the screen.
