Google may be increasingly evil, but now they allow you to generate a chart simply by passing a bunch of url parameters. How potenitally useful is that? (Very.)

To show what I mean, suppose I want to include a little pie chart in this post. Rather than go off and prepare it in some sort of charting application, I can just write it as an image tag like this:

<img src="http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=p3&chd=s:hW&chs=250x100&chl=Tasty|Pie">

which comes out like:

Of course this is even more powerful if you're using it programmatically to display interactively-generated data. As well as pie charts, you can do line, bar, Venn diagrams and scatter plots. And of course you can specify colour, fill pattern and all that sort of gubbins. All in the url parameters!

I now need to think of lots of exciting ways to use this facility. But, alas, just now I'm too busy to.

6th level! That's pretty cool. Am I party leader?

"can be a dangerous alignment because because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable"

Yeah, right, Rand-boy. I'll limit your actions with an Explosive Runes if you don't STFU.

I Am A: Neutral Good Human Sorcerer (6th Level)

Ability Scores:







Neutral Good A neutral good character does the best that a good person can do. He is devoted to helping others. He works with kings and magistrates but does not feel beholden to them. Neutral good is the best alignment you can be because it means doing what is good without bias for or against order. However, neutral good can be a dangerous alignment because because it advances mediocrity by limiting the actions of the truly capable.

Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.

Sorcerers are arcane spellcasters who manipulate magic energy with imagination and talent rather than studious discipline. They have no books, no mentors, no theories just raw power that they direct at will. Sorcerers know fewer spells than wizards do and acquire them more slowly, but they can cast individual spells more often and have no need to prepare their incantations ahead of time. Also unlike wizards, sorcerers cannot specialize in a school of magic. Since sorcerers gain their powers without undergoing the years of rigorous study that wizards go through, they have more time to learn fighting skills and are proficient with simple weapons. Charisma is very important for sorcerers; the higher their value in this ability, the higher the spell level they can cast.
