Chaos Theory In Practice

Can you resist the jolly, CANDY-LIKE Random Post Button® at the right hand side of this page?!

A new widget button has been added to this website that provides function that I have wanted for a loooooong time. Clicking this button on the right sidebar will serve up a random page from the almost 1800 [as of April 19th, 2019] pages of content here. It’s like playing a slot machine, crossed with a time machine, except that it’s free. I thought in the early days of this blog that this would be easy to implement, then I saw that it was not [when thinking conventionally]. As it turned out, it really was disgustingly simple to implement in the end; years after I looked into how to achieve this the first time. Sigh. But that’s all behind me, now.

    I like reading them in the correct order. But a random one is nice, when things are slow here.
