22:41:18: <The_Tick> Mac-arena: quickly 22:41:21: <The_Tick> we need an app 22:41:25: <Mac-arena> The_Tick: Who? 22:41:27: <The_Tick> random bingo card generator 22:41:31: <Mac-arena> Hehe. 22:41:32: <The_Tick> all wwdc participants 22:41:40: <The_Tick> so it generates a random square 22:41:51: <The_Tick> from a bunch of blocks 22:41:55: Mac-arena imagines doing that in PostScript 22:42:04: <Mac-arena> Hooray for images that change every time you open them! :D 22:42:05: <The_Tick> then it spools them all to be printed 22:42:09: <The_Tick> and then you print them 22:42:14: <The_Tick> and hand them out to everyone at wwdc 22:42:19: <The_Tick> bam! 22:42:27: <Mac-arena> I remember that there are a few handwriting fonts written in PostScript, so that every letter varies 22:43:48: <The_Tick> http://arstechnica.com/staff/fatbits.ars/2006/7/23/4730 22:43:52: <The_Tick> something like that 22:43:58: <The_Tick> but.. more random 22:43:58: <Mac-arena> Yeah, saw it on simx's blog. 22:44:04: <Mac-arena> Also saw that it was dugg. 22:44:25: <Mac-arena> The_Tick: I accept your challenge. 22:44:34: Mac-arena incarnates a svn repo in his PostScript folder 22:46:12: <The_Tick> if you make it so 22:46:23: <The_Tick> then I believe we can have ourselves a little bit of bingo humor at wwdc 22:46:37: <The_Tick> well, I won't be there 22:46:47: <Mac-arena> Me either. 22:47:23: <The_Tick> but it'd be funny to hear someone yell bingo on the streaming video 22:47:24: <The_Tick> lol
I took him up on it anyway (like I said). And here's the result: WWDC Bingo 2006!
This version comes in the form of three (actually four, but that one is hidden and simply draws the header graphic) EPS files. Every time you open one, one or more boards are randomly generated for you automatically. The first is 1-up (full-page), the second is 2-up, and the third is 4-up.
In addition to the randomization, there are 119 more strings in this version than the original. Print out multiple cards and increase your odds!
Oh, and if you really do play it in the keynote, I want to hear you yell “BINGO!” on the webcast. Make it good and loud.
Or, if you're a presenter, I have a tchotchke idea for you: branded bingo markers. I'm envisioning one with the Panic logo on the barrel. :D
