Phorp (Phone Home Robot Pro)

Screenshot - 12_31_2006 , 10_44_38 AM_ver001.png
Open source for Windows/Mac/*nix/etc. Comes with precompiled Windows binary.

Phone Home Robot Pro (phorp) is an open source program that runs on your pc or laptop, and periodically "phones home" to a server somewhere to check if it has been stolen, and gets instructions on what to do if it has been.

There are a lot of services you can buy that perform similarly to phorp, in that they connect regularly to a central server so that you can hopefully track them down when they are stolen. In general, phorp is different from these services in that it attempts to be extremely lightweight and minimalistic, and in that there is no single service you need to subscribe to. Instead, you can use your own web servers or ftp accounts as the home page for the program to phone home to and for you to leave instructions for.

NOTE: This is an advanced tool for advanced users; it requires some reading and work to set up.

Whats Its Color

Whats Its Color is a fun little online application for getting the primary and complementary dominant colors of an image, how many visually unique colors are in an image, and the top ten visually unique colors in an image.  Why is this useful?  Well, if you were creating a website around an image or using an image as the primary inspiration for any type is design it can be very helpful to know what its primary dominant color is or what are the unique colors that people can see when viewing the image.  The final results will display your image on a background that is best suited for that image.  This application is just fun to play around with.

  • Images are resized for display purposes only.  The original image file, and all its color information, is used in the processing
  • Font colors used in the results page are adjusted based on the colors that are in the display
  • Full support for JPG, GIF and PNG
  • Option for discarding the background from being used in calculations.  This lets you process an image on a solid color background without the colored background affecting calculations
  • Information on the amount of visually unique colors are displayed.  This includes the top ten
  • Additional color information is gathered but currently not displayed.  Open for suggestion on what else to display
