How To Do A Moving Cloud.

I'm more pleased with my moving tag cloud than a bloke of my age should be really. It's now a pleasing shade of blue, or 6131BB as I like to call it and I think I've got the size about right.

Many have asked how to do it and I've seriously contemplated writing a post in which I pretend I did it myself, giving technical details and what nots. The plan went the way of many of my plans, mostly because I wouldn't fooled a single one of you techno machans.

The truth is that I stumbled upon it here. It's a blog by a very helpful woman call Amanda and I followed her instructions to end up with the marvel of magical movement that is my tag cloud. Somewhere in her blog there's the first cloud that I did, which had the issue of not appearing sometimes, or perhaps appearing sometimes, depending on whether you're a glass half full or half empty type of person. The newer version that I have linked to works perfectly and the instructions are so simple that even a total techno fuckwit I could follow them easily.

Thanks and kudos to Amanda at www.bloggerbuster.com/ for the cloud. I've favourited her site and reckon there's lots of perusing I'll be doing in the very near future.
