Loripscream - zlythern
Almost every designer which include text, must've known about Lorem Ipsum :D

When I first encountered this text, I thought it was just some random Latin text. But if you dig deeper, it is a passage that came from a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC ;) Designers often copy-and-paste the text, to fill up some space that were later meant to be filled by real-text. This was mostly done, to just provide a mock-up, to give a general view of a layout :)

The text is more likely looks like this :
"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum."
Now, Lorem Ipscream offers a whole lotsa new flavor for this Lorem Ipsum text ;)
Basically it was a neat text-generator :D

But while the functionality works just fine, there's a few glitch that's been bothering me. First one is in Firefox

Loripscream Firefox - zlythern
When you choose some flavor, it will generate the text, but it seems that it was truncated, and you can't scrolled it down ! So you can not copy the whole generated text ! This is a little bit annoying :|

So, then I go and try it on IE 6.0, and it gave me this result :

The results is even worse, the generated text are on top of the image. Which make it hard to read, and find ! At first I search it on the bottom, since on Firefox, it was on the bottom, but it turns out to be on top. Well, at least the whole text can be copied on IE :P


Well, the functionality and idea are nice, the layout is neat and pretty, but still there's some more work to do on the output ;) It will be nicer if there's a button to do the 'Copy' function to our clipboard right ;)

Another note for the geeky, all of this will not be a bother for you :P Since Loripscream provide an API which is just all you need right ;)

Anyway, Loripscream - It's Generatively Delicious to try ;) Or you can prefer the I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER? versions :P
