David Malki has played around with this design trope, including one of my favorites warning stickers CONTAINS ATOMS.

The image names are some function of date/time (e.g guessing that 20200818181737.png is year -2020 month-08 day-18 hour-6pm minute-17 second-37 on EST time where the Embry-Riddle Daytona Beach Observatory is located) . So if you hit submit the same second someone else does.....

Oh look out. It's not the only generator on the site folks.....

Also, if you navigate up the URL tree a little you'll find the name of the engineer who maintains the generators. He has an interesting Facebook video about the ERAU observatory (you know....once you stop jerking around with the generator and loading up his server....) He doesn't use the generator for signs for his own office disappointingly.

If anyone has minor qualms about thrashing the ERAU observatory server, you could always throw some money at the Friends of the Observatory fund.

I’m having a 90’s/ early 200O’s Australian Hip-Hop/Funk inspired evening. I made a sign - I probably shouldn’t have. Too much Hilltop Hoods and Cranky. I do love you America......but.....yeah...nah - with slightly drunken apologies to Oz members.
