Changes by hour
: Every hour, a new excuse appears. The only exception is nighttime hours (from 11 PM—5 AM).
Changes by day
: Every day, the background color of the webpage changes, as well as the size of the typeface that displays the excuses. This is meant to convey a creeping sense of urgency to meet a deadline; on Mondays, the text is smallest and the background color is green, to evoke a feeling of having the whole week to get something done. As the week progresses, the background color gradually changes towards red and the text gets bigger, as a subconscious reminder that you're not doing the things you need to get done.
: On Sundays, the background color changes from a single, static color to a flashing red and black animation, meant to evoke a kind of alarm and panic. From 6 PM to 11 PM, the text reads, "WHY DIDN'T YOU DO YOUR WORK?!?!?!!?!?!?"
