In the pipeline
Adding more building blocks, obviously, hopefully also for some new languages. Also, the site will be revamped responsively.
14 March 2022
Instead of calculating all the totals and percentages in real-time for each insult, these values are now calculated once per words update and later displayed much more rapidly. Insult generation went from taking up to 30 seconds to under 2 seconds! Also, fixed functionality of the "Click here to go back to the insult generation menu" button, which had never worked properly since the start of the PHP insult section of this site (almost exactly 9 years ago).

Until something final happens to Putin, all insults will be aimed at him.
30 December 2020
The total number of possible insults in all languages together burst through the 2 billion (American: 2 trillion)! Nearly 99% of those insults are English, by the way. It took a little over 3 years to reacg this milestones from the first billion.
26 August 2020
Through the past two years I have kept adding building blocks to the database. But this time the number of English insults in particular has grown by about 20% since October 2017! I also extended the "thanks" in the Manual this time, and improved the questions page for people who would like to help adding a new language.
19 September 2018
Minor textual site improvements.
10 May 2018
Reconfigured the site to https.
24 October 2017
After having added quite a few words in the preceding months, the site now burst through the 1 trillion (US) / 1 billion (European) possible English insults. 1,050,712,370,400 to be exact.
13 July 2017
Changed the site to allow access via an API. This allows for much more flexibility (also in regular mode), as can be seen when you use the "About" button to view the site background info. This extra flexibility also necessitated the use of more careful input validation and a different data access library. Additionally, I came across some incorrect wordings in various languages. All fixed now!
26 May 2017
Extended the "Trump insult mode", and simplified the user interface so that even he himself may be able to use it without assistance.
24 February 2017
Added a special "Trump insult mode" triggered on his date of birth, June 14th.
10 April 2016
Corrected (well, deleted) dead links.
8 April 2015
Added the inverted exclamation mark (¡) in front of Spanish-language insults. Now only more building blocks need to be provided...
31 March 2015
Made it a lot easier for people to help me to add building blocks or even entirely new languages. Also improved general design, CSS and HTML here and there.
6 January 2015
Added one more possible Wowbagger logo to the home page (thanked be Dave Moss!).
14 February 2015
Added total-insults-created-so-far information to the home page.
28 December 2014
Some Dutch and Czech words added to the database update (as well as some stuff corrected here and there). The home page now wishes you a specifically interesting day on certain special days of the year. Oh yeah, new random home page logos added, too.
8 December 2014
Special "Loads of Love for Krampus" insult database update with new chain-slappingly cool insults! Also, I have finally figured out how to get diacritics displayed right. Right on!
26 December 2013
Special Yuletide insult database update with new yummilicious insults! On a side note, the software downloads have been phased out.
3 March 2013
21 December 2012
Added a Facebook "Like" thing in the main menu.
1 January 2012
An insultingly excellent year to you all! Switched to a better visitor tracker.
4 May 2007
I added a new update/news announcement list to the main menu.
1 February 2005
I incorporated the password information in the web site.
15 April 2004
The site has been reworked a bit (including the addition of a PayPal 'donate' button).
20 August 2002
Due to the site being mentioned in the 'Weird Earl' section of The Straight Dope we're finally getting the number of visitors that I always felt this pretty funny and rather unique program deserved :-)
13 May 2001
News reached me that Douglas Adams has died, unexpectedly, of a heart attack. He was aged 49. A sad day to the world of humour.
This site was started, as a support site for downloadable software (Atari ST and Windows) incarnations of the insult generator.
