I've posted previously about Spirographs, but I got a comment from Peter on my previous post that alerted me to OscilloScribe. I wanted to give it a try and see how it compares. This is actually a much better applet for creating really cool spiral art. Here are a few of my attempts.

Spirograph 1
Spirograph 2

This program has a nice enough interface for creating almost any graph you want and it also allows you to save the image to your local hard drive. My only suggestion would be for the designer to make it a more traditional method for saving the images when you are done. Also, it would be kind of neat if you could alter the thickness of the drawing tool. Otherwise, it's easy to use and a lot of fun. Check out OscilloScribe today.

New Template! Thisaway Blue!

Thisaway Blue ThumbOver this weekend, we have updated the template on Arconati Kid Korner. It was time for a much-overdue upgrade. I let Reese pick from Blogger's available layouts and she immediately picked Thisaway Blue as her favorite.

Although it should have been a one-click update, I've spent the better part of this weekend cleaning little details up and adding some new features. But it's been worth it. Look for more updates and more functionality in the near future.

Old Template: Ms. Moto

For those that want to reminisce, here's a screen shot of the old version.

Ms. MotoVery long and pink.

New Template: Thisaway Blue

And here's a quick capture of the design today.

Thisaway BlueVery cool and blue.

Note: the search feature that was previously in place has been temporarily hidden, but will likely be coming back soon. Thanks!
