Look at all the pretty colors

I have not slept in 24 hrs.

I've done this instead.

OK, so maybe some of you could have whipped that out in a couple of hours or less. But I did it by hand and I had to make all the decisions.

Come on, I aughta' get some hacker cred for being willing to spend all night tracking down an idea.


Look at the last one!

It is elegant! It is practically a magic square of color. Or maybe I'm just sleep deprived.

[edited 16:57. Ok, I blaim the sleep deprivation for the basic error in base 16 math. But I have corrected it.]


LOL. You must be sleep-deprived! Nice work.

As an additional reference, when I'm looking for color information for website usage, I usually use one of these charts:

Lynda's colors by hue
Lynda's colors by value
Webmonkey's color codes chart

you certainly do in my book!

it's as impressive as heck.

I noticed you did chakras - have you ever delineated aura colors/meanings according to your trad?

just curious.

Re: you certainly do in my book!


My understanding of auras is that they are an internal experience. It is not that people radiate color but that some people perceive certain types of information as color. So every individual must look inward to find out what the information they are perceiving means. Like dreams.
I haven't a clue what it is .. but it looks nice!



Mostly they are color charts.

one of the ways HTML names colors is a six-digit hexadecimal representation in the form #RRGGBB, where RR, GG, and BB are the hexadecimal values for the red, green, and blue values of the color. Giving 16,777,216 colors.

Basically the first 2 digits indicate how much red is in the color, the second 2 digits indicate how much green and the third 2 digits indicate how much blue.

But the 2 digit numbers are in base 16. so the numbers are
00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F,
10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F,
...and so on till...F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, FA, FB, FC, FD, FE, FF.

So the least color one can have is #000000=black and most is #FFFFFF=White
